The Zhaboka was an ancient weapon of the Zabrak,[1] a species that hailed from the planet Iridonia.[2] The Zabrak Sith Lord Darth Maul, who was active during the waning years of the Galactic Republic,[3][4] modeled his personal saberstaff after this weapon.[1] Maul's weapon was crafted from two lightsabers connected at their pommels, with activator controls capable of igniting either or both blades and specialized blade modulator controls.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Zhaboka first appeared in the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.[6] Sources such as Star Wars: Darth Maul, Sith Apprentice revealed the connection between the weapon and Maul's saberstaff.[7] Both of these titles were part of the Expanded Universe, which was later re-branded as Star Wars Legends and no longer considered official canon.[8] However, the reference work Star Wars in 100 Scenes, a canon guide released August 18, 2014 by Dorling Kindersley presenting one hundred hand picked scenes from both prequel and original trilogies of Star Wars films,[9] stated in a note about Maul's saberstaff that it was based on a Zhaboka.[1]
