"Yes. An improvement, I think. The hilt you took from Master Infil'a did not suit."
―Darth Sidious, upon inspecting Darth Vader's lightsaber[src]

Darth Vader's first red lightsaber was the first lightsaber Darth Vader created after using the lightsaber he took from Jedi Master Kirak Infil'a.


A short time after the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Sith Lord Darth Vader was tasked by his master Darth Sidious to kill a Jedi and retrieve their kyber crystal in order to power a new Sith lightsaber.[4] Vader tracked Jedi Master Kirak Infil'a to the river moon of Al'doleem and confronted him. Vader eventually killed the Jedi Master and retrieved his lightsaber.[5] He headed to Mustafar, where he bled the saber's crystal, turning it red.[6]

Vader used Infil'a's hilt in conjunction with his new red crystal in multiple conflicts, such as when he briefly fought The Grand Inquisitor[7] and Jocasta Nu in the former Jedi Temple.[8] During a mission to Cabarria, Infil'a's hilt was destroyed by mercenaries hired to assassinate Vader.[9] The destruction of Infil'a's hilt provoked Vader to build a hilt of his own design. During his journey back to Coruscant, Vader constructed a new hilt for his crystal while aboard his personal starship. Vader later presented the weapon to Sidious, who was impressed with his apprentice's new saber.[1]
