- "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. That was until members of House Vizsla snuck in and liberated it. They used the saber to unify the people and strike down those who would oppose them. One time, they ruled all of Mandalore wielding this blade."
- ―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 as a child. According to the 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.
