DescriptionEdit

Kyber Saber crystals

The broken kyber crystals from the Kyber Saber

The Kyber Saber was a sword made out of several pure kyber crystals. It was so powerful that its maker, a Jedi Master named Baird Kantoo, smashed it and hid the crystals throughout the galaxy.[1]

HistoryEdit

OriginsEdit

Before the dawn of the Old Republic, a Jedi Master named Baird Kantoo forged a sword made of pure kyber crystals known as the Kyber Saber. As the first lightsaber, the Kyber Saber was said to magnify the wielder's Force powers a thousandfold. Upon wielding it, Kantoo discovered its creative potential to reshape landscapes and destroy whole planetary bodies with a single swing. Realizing that the weapon was too dangerous for any individual to wield, the Jedi Master smashed it and hid the crystals throughout the galaxy.[1]

The Freemakers and NaareEdit

During the Galactic Civil War, the Sith Lords Darth Sidious and Darth Vader learned about the Kyber Saber from the Jedi Archives and decided to obtain it. Darth Sidious planned to collect all the kyber crystals and use them to destroy the galaxy in one big blast. The Sith Lords dispatched the Sith agent Naare to retrieve the shards of the Kyber Saber.[1] Naare traveled to the jungle world of Nal Kapok where she found the Kyber Saber's hilt in an underground cave. During that trip, she encountered a Force-sensitive boy named Rowan Freemaker and his B1 battle droid Roger; whom she saved from being devoured by a dianoga. Naare managed to convince Rowan that she was a Jedi Purge survivor. After relating to him the history of the Kyber Saber, she gained Rowan's trust and offered to train him in the ways of the Jedi. Naare then settled with the Freemakers at the Wheel space station by tricking the owner into renting her a room for one credit.[1]

Later, Rowan sensed through the Force that the second Kyber Saber crystal was in the Balgaroth asteroid field. While Naare and his older sister Kordi Freemaker argued about Rowan's safety, Rowan and Roger sneaked off on a ship to the Balgaroth asteroid field. There, they discovered that the second kyber crystal was lodged in a rock over a vat of lava. Despite retrieving the crystal, the two were quickly captured by the Hutt crime lord Graballa, who desired the crystal. Rowan's older brother Zander and sister Kordi mounted a rescue mission with the help of Naare. While escaping from Graballa's base, the kyber crystal was sucked out into space. After escaping Graballa and his henchmen including the bounty hunter Dengar, Naare was so enraged with the Freemakers that she attempted to destroy their starship, the StarScavenger. However, Rowan sensed the second crystal and managed to retrieve it; earning Naare's praise in the process.[3]

After a false lead on Cloud City[4], Rowan managed to obtain the third Kyber Saber crystal from a Trandoshan statue on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. Rowan's discovery pleased his "master" Naare.[5] Despite these initial successes, Naare soon encountered delays in her mission to recover the remaining kyber crystals due to the Freemakers' preoccupation with other matters. Growing impatient, the Emperor suggested that Naare slice up Rowan's family to motivate the boy in a hologram message. Rowan accidentally discovered the message and realized that Naare was a Sith.[6]

Race for the Kyber SaberEdit

Rowan informed Kordi, Zander, and Roger and the Freemakers fled their garage on the Wheel. After escaping Naare, the Freemakers resolved to find the remaining Kyber Saber crystals so that the Empire could not use them for destructive purposes. On Takodana, Rowan managed to obtain the fourth Kyber Saber crystal from Maz Kanata. However, Naare joined forces with Graballa, who wanted the crystals to raise funds to build a beachside resort and cafe. In order to catch Rowan, the two reached an agreement to share the crystals.[7] With the help of Graballa's starship Rancor's Fist, Naare managed to steal the fourth, fifth, and sixth Kyber Saber crystals from the Freemakers on Takodana, Ningoth, and Naboo. Despite losing Rowan, Naare managed to track the Freemakers' movements by using a tracking device she had planted on Roger's bagpack.[8]

After learning that the seventh Kyber Saber crystal was on the frozen planet of Hoth, the Freemakers managed to delay Naare by seeking refuge with the former Sith clone Jek-14 on the planet Zoh.[9] When Naare and Graballa learned of their whereabouts, the Freemakers raced their opponents to Hoth. There, Rowan and his siblings discovered that the last Kyber Saber crystal was hiding in an underground ice cavern. After recovering the last crystal, they engaged Naare and Graballa in a brief battle. In the end, Rowan managed to trick Naare by offering a fake ice shard to her. Before Naare and Graballa discovered the deception, the Freemakers fled offworld on the StarScavenger. After their adventure on Hoth, Rowan decided that he could not endanger his siblings. He and Roger sneaked away on a Z-wing and fled into hyperspace.[10]

Rowan and Roger hid with the last Kyber Saber crystal on an uncharted planet. There, Rowan completed his Jedi training with the help of Roger's memories and some training droids. Meanwhile, Naare conceived of a plan to lure Rowan out of hiding by torturing Zander and Kordi. Naare destroyed Zander's starship collection and Kordi's credits, causing them emotional harm. Rowan sensed their pain through the Force and returned with Roger to confront Naare. Despite besting Naare and Graballa's henchmen in a fierce skirmish, Naare learned that Roger knew the location of the last crystal. After stealing the droid's head, she terminated her deal with Graballa and used her Force powers to drive him out. Naare then departed on her Eclipse Fighter to reclaim the seventh crystal.[11]

Naare's gambitEdit

Using the knowledge stored in Roger's databank, Naare traveled to the uncharted world and reclaimed the seventh Kyber Saber crystal. After reassembling the Kyber Saber, Naare was contacted by the Emperor, who expressed anger that his servant was handling his "prized weapon." Tired of serving the troublesome Sith Lord, Naare rebelled and used the Kyber Saber to destroy an Imperial fleet above Coruscant. Having decimated Palpatine's defenses, Naare attempted to declare herself Empress. During the fighting on Coruscant, Rowan and the other Freemakers managed to steal back the Kyber Saber. Despite being pursued by Imperial forces, the Freemakers escaped into hyperspace. Aware of the Kyber Saber's danger, Rowan decided to destroy the weapon by throwing it into the volcanoes of Mustafar.[2]

Palpatine was angered by the destruction of the Kyber Saber and placed Rowan on the Empire's 27th Most Wanted List. Meanwhile, Graballa and his henchmen caught up with Naare and had her frozen in carbonite as punishment for breaking their deal. In space, the Freemakers joined the Rebel Alliance at the invitation of Admiral Ackbar, who had learnt of Rowan's explots.[2]
