Ezra Bridger, a Padawan and rebel who lived in the years prior to the Battle of Yavin, constructed a second lightsaber sometime after the destruction of his first one at the hands of Darth Vader during the mission to Malachor.
Following the destruction of Ezra Bridger's lightsaber by Darth Vader at Malachor Ezra built a new lightsaber sometime between 3 BBY and 2 BBY. During the mission to Krownest, Sabine Wren wielded the lightsaber when she fought Viceroy Gar Saxon who wielded the Darksaber.
Later on, during a mission to investigate what the Empire was doing with large kyber crystals, Saw Gerrera briefly used this weapon to ignite one of such crystals to destroy the Imperial freighter that was carrying it.
During a final battle to free Lothal, after Ezra's strike team seizes control of the Imperial Complex, Ezra leaves his lightsaber in the hands of his compatriots after Grand Admiral Thrawn issued an ultimatum in which Ezra must turn himself in alone onboard the Chimaera to prevent the Capital City from being bombarded. After Ezra managed to repel Thrawn's Imperial fleet from Lothal, Sabine Wren used the lightsaber once again to smash a window out of the Complex as the rebels rig it to blow, providing them a quick escape route.
Ezra's new lightsaber featured a hilt with a black grip and silver accents. Unlike his previous lightsaber, which utilized a blue Kyber crystal, his new lightsaber contained a green Kyber crystal. Design-wise, he had used a more traditional Lightsaber design, as opposed to his old blaster-Lightsaber hybrid.
