|Usage and history|
Anakin Solo's lightsaber was a violet-bladed lightsaber used by the Jedi Anakin Solo during the Yuuzhan Vong War. It played an important role in the outcome of the war while in the hands of Anakin and many others after his death.
History of Anakin's LightsabersEdit
During his early Jedi training, Anakin was part of a group of Jedi that retrieved Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber from Orloc. Anakin used Obi-Wan's lightsaber for some time. It is unknown if Anakin's final lightsaber was completely new, or if it used parts from Kenobi's. Regardless, it was clearly inspired by Kenobi's design (much like his uncle's). While the Yuuzhan Vong occupied Yavin 4, Anakin added a Lambent crystal that he harvested into his lightsaber. This allowed Anakin to use "Vongsense," which allowed him to perceive the Vong and their creations. It also changed the blade color.
Anakin Solo's deathEdit
In 27 ABY Anakin lead a team of Jedi on a mission to destroy the Voxyn cloning facility on the Koros-strohna Baanu Raas. Though he fought valiantly, he died in combat with Yuuzhan Vong to protect his siblings and fellow Jedi. His lightsaber was soon after taken by Nom Anor.
During the Mission to Myrkr Jacen Solo was also captured and taken to the Yuuzhan Vong occupied Coruscant. While in Vong captivity, Jacen was offered Anakin's lightsaber in an attempt to turn him to the Yuuzhan Vong Religion. Jacen accepted, but deceived them when he lied of his conversion.
Ganner Rhysode came to rescue Jacen and used Anakin's lightsaber to kill countless Yuuzhan Vong warriors, while Jacen sabotaged the World Brain. Ganner was killed in combat and the lightsaber was taken yet again by Nom Anor, who presented it to Supreme Overlord Shimrra.
Second Battle of CoruscantEdit
During the Second Battle of Coruscant Luke Skywalker confronted Shimrra. As they fought, Shimrra mocked Luke with his nephew's lightsaber. To the astonishment and dismay of Shimrra, Luke used the Force to pull the lightsaber to him, and then used it to decapitate the Dread Lord.
End of the WarEdit
With Shimrra dead, the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered and left for the Unknown Regions with Zonama Sekot. As the newly liberated galaxy celebrated peace, Han Solo drove Anakin's lightsaber into Chewbacca’s memorial tree on Kashyyyk, saying farewell to both of them.
