"And as for that lightsaber. A curved hilt. I haven't seen one of those in a while. Do you know who else had a curved hilt? Darth Sakia. By all accounts, she was quite the swordswoman."
―Lene Kostana, to Dooku — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

Darth Sakia was a fictional female Dark Lord of the Sith created by Jedi Master Lene Kostana hoping that it would make Jedi Initiate Dooku remember a Force vision that he had seen when he broke into the Bogan Collection, a collection of artifacts located in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant.[1] Around 88 BBY,[2] Dooku faced Kostana in a duel, convinced that the Master was secretly a Sith Lord. While fighting, Kostana said that, like Dooku himself, Darth Sakia used a lightsaber with a curved hilt, and that she was a skilled swordswoman. When Jedi Grand Master Yoda joined them on the contemplation balcony where they were dueling, he assured Dooku that Kostana was not a Sith Lord and that there had never been a Sith called Darth Sakia.[1]
