"The DL-18 for my hip, the sleeve gun for surprise, and... yes the lightsaber. Old fashioned, but useful."
Mara Jade[1]

This lightsaber was the weapon carried by Emperor's Hand Mara Jade. It produced a magenta blade when ignited.

This lightsaber was constructed by Mara Jade from a rare crystal given to her by Emperor Palpatine when she became an Emperor's Hand.[2]

She used this weapon with her hold-out blaster throughout the Galactic Civil War, including in the Shelsha sector,[3] on Svivren,[1] Chibias[4] and Kintoni[5]. She lost it after the Battle of Endor, during her duel with Lumiya on Caprioril.[6]

Several years later, Mara Jade joined the New Jedi Order and constructed a new purple-bladed lightsaber as part of her training to become a Jedi Knight.[6]
