Rapier was the name Darth Maul gave to a Duelist Elite droid he used to train himself in lightsaber combat. As its name suggested, it was armed with a steel rapier. It had a blaster-resistant durasteel chassis, and it was programmed with an array of skills in martial arts, that it could execute at speeds slightly faster than those of Humans. It had been manufactured with an inhibitor that prevented it from killing its opponent after the droid was victorious, but this was removed by the Sith. In 32.5 BBY, Maul used his lightsaber to remove one of its arms and stab it in the abdomen as it fought against him with three other Duelist Elites, Chain, Cudgel, and Hachete, but it was not damaged beyond repair.
