"The Emperor's Wayfinder is in the Imperial vault. At delta 3-6, transient 9-3-6, bearing 3-2, on a moon in the Endor system. From the southern shore, only this blade tells."
―C-3PO translates the Sith inscription on the dagger[src]

The Blade of Ochi of Bestoon,[2] or simply Ochi's blade, was a knife owned by the Sith cultist and assassin, Ochi of Bestoon.[1]

The Sith assassin[1] and relic hunter[3] Ochi used this melee weapon to kill many,[1] including the Force-sensitive Rey's father and mother.[4] As a result of such deeds of murder, the Sith dagger resonated in the Force with the evil imbued within, thus shocking Rey[2] upon the human Jedi-aspirant's touch.[4]

The blade itself was capable of withstanding lightsaber blows, making it a formidable weapon.[1] Additionally, it was inscribed with runes[2] in the Sith language[4] which recorded co-ordinates leading to the location of the wayfinder belonging to Darth Sidious.[2] The droid C-3PO had his systems altered to decipher this inscription, having been prevented from translating the forbidden language by a programming block.[4]

Inscription[edit | edit source]

Itharii Exegol
Eternal One
―Inscription on Ochi's blade, transliterated from ur-Kittât as per the Jedi Journal[src]

The blade's Sith language inscription provided in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary could be transliterated to the lines quoted above. This process could be done through the real-world Jedi Journal product of unconfirmed canoncity from Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which provides a translation between the alphabet of High Galactic and a script synonymous to that of the langauge of the Sith shown on Ochi's dagger.[5]

A Fandom article notes[6] that the inscription's "Isaiwinokka Hoyakuts" has only slight deviations from becoming Tsaiwinokka Hoyakut, which meant Reanimated Dead in the Sith language, as per the Legends reference book Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side.[7]

Prophecy of the Sith'ari

In addition, "Itharii" bears a similarity to Sith'ari, also from the Book of Sith, which meant Sith Overlord, and a title similar to that of the Jedi's Chosen One. The mantle was assumed by Darth Sidious, who saw himself as the ultimate Sith,[7] just as his Canon counterpart did.[4]

Following "Itharii" was the mention of "Exegol," which housed the Sith Citadel and its Throne of the Sith, lair of Darth Sidious' Sith Eternal,[1] and finally "Eternal One," echoing the ambition of Darth Sidious[4] and the title of the Chosen One.[8]
