"This once belonged to an old friend of mine. And now it is yours, as reward for your impressive training."
―Count Dooku to General Grievous[src]

This blue-bladed lightsaber was a weapon that had once belonged to Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. It contained a blue Adegan crystal. After the Jedi Master's death in 32 BBY, it was given to the cyborg Grievous for him to use. It served as the first Jedi lightsaber for his collection.


Sith TrophyEdit

This lightsaber was created by Sifo-Dyas during his years as a Jedi. He had this and another lightsaber which was on his person at the time of his death on the desert moon of Oba Diah. After that, Dooku collected the saber and Dyas' corpse, which were preserved in a coffin-like transparent freezer unit, the body arranged as if resting with the lightsaber still clasped in his hands.[2]

Dooku kept hold of the lightsaber during Sheelal's reconstruction and training, eventually presenting it the cyborg as a reward. However, when Dooku did so, he referred to Sheelal as a "droid", enraging the Kaleesh.[2]

Usage by the Jedi HunterEdit

Shortly after Dooku left, Sheelal began deteriorating into violent rage. Sitting in his chair trembling, Sheelal finally leapt into the air and attacked his own IG-100 MagnaGuards. Wielding the lightsaber against them, Sheelal executed them with brutal speed and efficiency. When he finished, Sheelal angrily stated that he wasn't a droid, and declared himself General Grievous.[2]

Throughout the Clone Wars, Grievous would add the lightsabers of the Jedi he killed to the collection which started with this one.
