I find this extremely intriguing. It seems the lightbow is the weapon that marks you as a Guardian upon completion of a test called the "seventh duan", just like how a lightsaber would mark you as a member of the Jedi Order. So in a way, the lightbow is the Guardian's (symbolic) version of a lightsaber. Judging by the pattern and design elements drawn on the lightbow, we can tell it is clearly a sacred item. I wonder why, with them idealizing the Jedi Order and all, they chose to use a blaster as a traditional weapon rather than a melee weapon. Since kyber crystals are abundant in the area, did they use them to increase the firepower of a lightbow as seen with First Order weaponary?
