Savage Opress's lightsaber was a double-bladed lightsaber used by the Dark Jedi and Sith Lord Savage Opress during the Clone Wars. The weapon would see action on many fronts such as Lotho Minor, Florrum, Nal Hutta and Mandalore.
The weapon closely resembled his brother's lightsaber. It also contained design features similar to Dooku's lightsaber, notably the emitter guards on both ends. Compared to typical lightsabers, This weapon had an unusual sound frequency where the ignition hiss sounded similar to an animal-like growl, while the idle hum had a much deeper resonance pitch. Also, the weapon's blade length extended much further than most other lightsabers.
Serenno and ToydariaEdit
It was first used in sparring duels with Count Dooku, Opress's master. It was later used during the showdown on Toydaria, during a three-way duel on a Separatist dreadnaught with Dooku and Asajj Ventress, Opress's true master, and Opress's subsequent escape from the dreadnought, wielded against Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and numerous battle droids. On Dathomir, he later brandished it against a lone Jedi Knight, displaying aggressive skills in combat.
Lotho Minor and RaydoniaEdit
Opress carried it to Lotho Minor, in search of his brother. He ignited it and slaughtered a bunch of junkers. When he fell below, he ignited half of the weapon to provide light to navigate the abyss to find his brother. In the struggle with a near-mad Darth Maul, he lost the weapon but shortly retrieved it with a Force pull after Maul ran away. The lightsaber saw combat, in conjunction with his brother's, above Raydonia against Obi-Wan Kenobi and Asajj Ventress.
Savage would use his lightsabers against Trandoshans at Yellowblade's Landing, and it would be used to confront the Jedi Bruu Jun-Fan and Grohto at Pleem's Nexus. Opress would later wield the blade as he confronted the Jedi Masters Salmara and Judd, and Padawan Dray on Moorjhone. In addition to this, Savage wielded the lightsaber while dueling Jedi Knight Finn Ertay and her Nikto companion at an unidentified Outer Rim spaceport. Savage fended Ertay long enough for Maul to get behind her and stab her in the back.
Cybloc and FlorrumEdit
Savage used the weapon on the Cybloc Transfer Station against the security droids, and used it to pry the credit coffer open. He would then use it against his brother when he suggested that they share equal power, throwing off the Rule of Two. He was bested quickly, however. Opress deployed the weapon against Jedi Master Adi Gallia on Florrum , while his brother went off to face Kenobi. The lightsaber was used to execute her, after Opress used his horns to impale her.
Missions to Mustafar and Nal HuttaEdit
Opress would travel to Mustafar with Maul, Pre Vizsla, Bo-Katan and the Death Watch to arrange an alliance with a Black Sun faction led by Xomit Grunseit. When the Falleen refused to ally with Maul and his new Shadow Collective, Opress hurled the lightsaber at him, killing him as well as four other Falleen leaders.
Sometime later, Opress used the weapon on Nal Hutta when Jabba Desilijic Tiure set bounty hunters on them. The mission became a retreat, though they managed to rally several Hutt enforcers. Opress used this weapon when he killed Oruba.
Savage would wield the lightsaber on Mandalore when the Death Watch and the Shadow Collective usurped Duchess Satine Kryze and assumed control of the New Mandalorian capital city of Sundari on Mandalore. He used it to kill the guards at the bank and then used it in a brief duel with Vizsla. Vizsla betrayed the two Sith and locked them up, but the two escaped. Maul would later kill Vizsla, therefore taking control of the Death Watch.
During the battle, he would later wield it in a duel against the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious, with the aid of his brother. It is here that Savage would meet his demise when Sidious impaled him.The lightsaber instantly fell to the floor.
