Illiv Orfa Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends

Around the time of 1 ABY, Illiv Orfa steals a mysterious crystal called the Shard of the Serpent from a sleeping Mustafarian named Ikt. The crystal, which is imbued with the power of the Force, features a distinctive, serpent-like flaw.

After Ikt discover the crystal is missing, he hires a spacer to track down the thief and recover the crystal. During the search, the spacer explores ruins and an alter on Mustafar and finds Illiv Orfa. Orfa rejects the spacer’s attempts to bargain for the crystal. She ignites her red-bladed lightsaber and attacks the spacer. The spacer defeats her and kills her in the duel, recovering the crystal. Ikt rewards the spacer 20,000 credits for returning the crystal to him.
