Tura Sanga was a Force-sensitive[2] born on the Wild Space[3] planet Kesh.[1] A member of the planet's Lost Tribe of Sith, Sanga used the Force to mold glass into intricate dagger-like weapons known as shikkars. Sanga's style in crafting shikkars was unique, and Sanga's work became very well known among members of the Sith Tribe.[1]

One shikkar made by Sanga was eventually kept in the personal collection of the Sith Saber Gavar Khai. In 44 ABY, Khai passed the shikkar on to his daughter, Vestara, who hoped that she would be able to use the weapon to kill the Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker or Skywalker's son, Ben, during their upcoming mission. Vestara instantly identified the shikkar as one designed by Sanga, recognizing the distinctive style in which the weapon had been made.[1]
