"I want that back."
"That's fine. Red's not my color."
―Asajj Ventress and Obi-Wan Kenobi, before dueling Savage and Maul[9]

Asajj Ventress's lightsabers were a pair of red-bladed curved-hilts used by Sith assassin Asajj Ventress. The lightsabers joined as a split saber,[2] as they could be wielded separately or joined together to form a unique S-shaped double-bladed lightsaber. Ventress wielded them after becoming the assassin of Count Dooku,[10] the head of state of the Confederacy of Independent Systems[11] and his secret Sith apprentice.[12]

While in Dooku's service, Ventress defeated many opponents with the sabers, having fought Jedi Master Luminara Unduli to a standstill during the Clone Wars.[13]

After Dooku's betrayal,[12] she continued using them, lending one to Obi-Wan Kenobi before dueling Savage Opress and the renegade Sith Lord Maul.[9] The weapons were stolen by Barriss Offee to frame her fellow Padawan Ahsoka Tano for the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar. When she told Anakin Skywalker, he forced Barriss into using them by swiping her own lightsaber and attacking her during his investigation, prompting her confession.[5]

Ventress replaced them with a yellow lightsaber bought on the black market, which she used during her time with Quinlan Vos, a Jedi Master working undercover with her while attempting to assassinate Count Dooku.[14]
