"The lightsaber of Darth Atrius. A powerful weapon. So much rage was channeled through this blade, they say it still resonates with the anger Atrius wielded when he cut down his enemies."
―A crime lord, speaking about one of Darth Atrius' lightsabers[src]

Darth Atrius was a male Sith Lord who lived during the time the Sith were plentiful and powerful. He wielded two crossguard lightsabers. At some point after the Battle of Yavin, the smuggler Sana Starros recovered his pair of crossguard lightsabers. She took one to a crime lord on Hradreek whilst selling the other to the Galactic Empire. Both sabers were later destroyed by Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Darth Atrius' lightsabers

Darth Atrius lived during a time when the Sith were a powerful and dominating force in the galaxy. During his life he constructed a pair of crossguard lightsabers that he used in battle. These lightsabers had the ability to bring out the inner rage of the bearer, forcing them into a killing frenzy. Atrius eventually died, but his sabers survived.[1]

Millennia after his death, Atrius' lightsabers were discovered by the smuggler Sana Starros who had been hired to retrieve the weapons by a crime lord on Hradreek. One of the lightsabers was delivered to the crime lord. The other saber was sold by Starros to the Galactic Empire on the orders of Emperor Palpatine. The sabers were eventually destroyed by Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, due to the dangers of their rage inducement abilities.[1]
