Lambent in Star Wars Legends

A lambent is a fruit of certain types of Yuuzhan Vong plants. During harvesting, an individual must slowly touch the plant to calm it down. Vuuzhan Vong would use helpers, often slaves, to calm the lambent during harvesting.

A lambent may serve many purposes. The plant may be used to as a light source or communication crystal. The plant may also brighten or dim depending on whoever is in possession of them.

Lambent may bear fruit on the surface of a planet or in a dovin basal-created gravitational field. A dovan basal is an organic defense tool utilized by the Yuuzhan Vong. The plant does not bear fruit in artificial gravity environments.

While in Yuuzhan Vong captivity, Anakin Solo finds plants bearing lambent on Yavin 4. He harvests a lambent and installs it inside his lightsaber as a lightsaber crystal. Solo’s bond with the lambent enables him to vaguely sense nearby Vuuzhan Vong.

In 137 ABY, Cade Skywalker comes into the possession his father’s lightsaber, the Kol Skywalker lightsaber. The Kol Skywalker uses a lambent as its lightsaber crystal.
