Freedon Nadd's short lightsaber was a bronze-bladed, short lightsaber that belonged to the Sith Lord Freedon Nadd.[1] When he constructed the weapon,[5] Nadd utilized a rubat lightsaber crystal in the blade[4] and chose a straight, cylindrical hilt style.[1] After training with and later killing Naga Sadow, the Sith lightsaber was part of Nadd's personal arsenal when he brought his dark rule to the planet Onderon. Only someone who had embraced the dark side could wield the lightsaber. In 3951 BBY,[2] companions of Meetra Surik broke into the tomb of Freedon Nadd on Onderon's moon, Dxun, in order to prevent the Sith from aiding a coup d'etat on the planet.[1]

The trio claimed the lightsaber from Nadd's sarcophagus.[3]

Behind the scenes

Freedon Nadd's lightsaber was first alluded to in 2001's The Dark Side Sourcebook. The weapon later appeared in the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, which also expanded on the specific details of the lightsaber. For the sake of completeness, this article assumes that the player picked up the lightsaber from the sarcophagus, although they may have chosen not to do so.
