The Blade of the Betrayer was a single-handed blade owned by the female Near-Human Dark Jedi Vansk, who served as a member of the Force-using organization known as the Blackguard during the Galactic Civil War. Vansk did not often use the blade in combat, preferring instead to use her red-bladed lightsaber, but she carried the blade as a secondary weapon. The blade was taken from Vansk after her death in 1 ABY at the hands of spacers during the Blackguard Purge, in which a Sullustan archeologist named Mi Fon Lu hired a group of spacers to kill all the Blackguard in the Southern Jedi Ruins on the planet Mustafar, as he wished to research in the area.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Blade of the Betrayer first appeared in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies as part of the Trials of Obi-Wan expansion released in 2005. The blade was a weapon players could use, which was obtainable either as loot dropped by Vansk during the quest "An Archaeologist's Problem" or through crafting by the player.
