- "I didn't know Mandalorians developed a type of lightsaber."
"We didn't. This was one of a kind. Legend tells that it was created over a thousand years ago by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian ever inducted into the Jedi Order. After his passing, the Jedi kept the saber in their temple."
- ―Kanan Jarrus and Fenn Rau, on the darksaber
Tarre Vizsla, a Force-sensitive human male, was the first Mandalorian to be inducted into the Jedi Order. According to legend, he created the darksaber, a unique black-bladed lightsaber which would become the symbol of leadership within House Vizsla. After Vizsla's passing, the saber was kept in the Jedi Temple until it was taken by members of House Vizsla during the fall of the Old Republic in 1032 BBY.
