“The Book of Boba Fett”: All We Know about the Mandalorian Lightsaber

It seems that The Mandalorian Season 1 has been introduced as the weapon with such a major legacy in the Star Wars universe. The thrilling news is The Darksaber comes back in the hands of Moff Gideon in the finale of Season 1 with Season 2 introducing subsequently with the previous owners in the form of Katee Sackhoff’s BoKatan Kryze. It seems that the Darksaber is now in the hands of Mando himself following the Mandalorian Season 2 finale.

The Mandalorian: What is Darksaber?

It seems that the Darksaber is unique among all of the lightsabers in the Star Wars universe and it was a flat, Katana-like blade rather than the traditional saber shape. It just emits such a peculiar low hum. The color is unlikely any other deep black with the bright white halo.

It seems that The Darksaber is also one of the most important artifacts in Mandalorian culture. It had been made by an ancient warrior named Tarre Vizsla on the first Mandalorian inducted into the Jedi Order. The event has happened at least 1000 years just ahead of the time of the films with Vizsla’s existence has been forgotten by all but the most devout Mandalorian warriors and also about the historians.

It has been kept that the signature of Vizsla blade on display as a museum relic at least until the Mandalorians stole it back. After that, the Darksaber has come for serving as a symbol of power for Mandalorians. Mandalorian traditionalists viewed the blade with the rightful ruler of Mandalore as Moff Gideon explain in the Season 2 finale. Now the only way is to defeat the owner of the blade in the ritualistic combat. It may present the problem between Mando and Bo-Katan.

It is unfortunate that the Darksaber has been habituated to trading into the hands again and again. While the clone war happen, Tarre Vizsla’s descendent Pre Vizsla had used the blade to rally his Deathwatch joins against Mandalore’s political leader, Duchess Satine Kryze. It seems that Pre Vizsla had made the mistake of forging an alliance with such ex-Sith Lord Darth Maul and also killed him in the ritualistic battle and also become the new forward of Death Watch.

At a  point in the waning days of the Clone Wars, the Darksaber has fallen into the possession of the Nightsisters of Dathomir. It had claimed by Sabine Wren who is a Mandalorian expatriate with a member of the Rebel Alliance. Sabine just used the blade for the rally with her people just against Viceroy Gar Saxon with  Imperial appointed ruler of Mandalore.  It has been reported that Sabine bestowed the Darksaber to Bo-Katan Kryze with the sister of the late Satine of Duchess.

The Mandalorian repeatedly hinted toward the dark fate of the planet having several characters alluding with the purge of the Empire of Mandalore and also having the survivors to be forced into hiding. The fifth episode of The Book of Boba Fett contains a flashback with that purge showing a fleet of TIE Bombers and also about a platoon of Assassin Droids laying to the waste of Mandalore.

What THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Revealed About STAR WARS' Future

The Mandalorian: The Darksaber is cursed or not

Din Djarin comes with wielding the Darksaber in Episode 5 an episode that is practically serving the backdoor season 3 premiere for the Mandalorian The fans also get more insight into the reason o-Katan had so adamantly opposed to accepting the Darksaber from Din.

In this episode, Emily Swallow’s character The Armorer tells of the legends surrounding the Darksaber.  While the owner of the  Darksaber claims the blade along with the honourable combat they also become worthy of leading Mandalore into the brighter future. It seems that if they are merely provided with the blade without any proof about their warrior prowess, the Darksaber become a curse and dooms all the Mandalore.

It is not necessarily mean that the Darksaber is cursed. The Armorer and her faction of Mandalorians with very fanatical and obsessing with the ancient customs. Now, this legend speaks with Bo-Katan’s reign end so badly. She had not conquered the blade in the battle during the events of the Star Wars Rebel and it becomes very damaging for her standing among the fellow Mandalorians.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Mandalorian's Connections  Explained

The Mandalorian: Connection with The Clone Wars

The first season revealed the real name and origin story of Pedro Pascal’s titular character. We had seen a young Din Djarin survive in Clone Wars battling and claim the lives of his parents. It is true that Din’s birth is not happening in Mandalorian but he was joined their culture and raising to be an honourable warrior and hunter. Mando has been considered a “: Child of the Watch” and it is a cult of religious zealots who are likely an offshoot of Death Watch and want to return to Mandalore’s tribal past and also insisting that adherents with their creed that never take of the helmets.

It seems that Din’s origin helps the series more firmly with events of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It culminates with one of the last and most destructive battles in the Clone Wars.

The Mandalorian: Season 2

It is reported that the fans of Star Wars got to see the Siege of Mandalore play out thanks to season 7 of The Clone Wars. It seems that the Siege of Mandalore with the last of the three major story arcs in the final season. It seems that the final episodes do not show  Din  Djarin or maybe the other characters from The Mandalorian Season 1 reveal how Ahsoka Tano’s good intentions just lead the Republic strike force for capturing Darth Maul wounded up open Mandalore to Imperial occupation.

The Mandalorian also forces new links for the projects like the Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebel and it also is set to make an unexpected connection with a  much more distant part of the Star Wars timeline. The character of Emily Swallow, the Armorer is recalling the ancient fights between the Mandalorians and the Jedi with the conflict set directly the stage for the 2003 video game Srae Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

It is mainly the second time since the release of Episode IX that a Star Wars project has alluded to the events of  KOTOR. The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary unveils one of Emperor Palpatine’s Sith Trooper legions.

It seems that the timing of these twin KOTOR cameos is not coincident5al. After several years of ambiguity over the KOTOR and also about the other Old Republic-era stories contained in Disney’s official Star Wars continuity with the beloved game. Aspyr, at last, confirms the KOTOR remake that has been set to launch to the PS5 with so0me of the original voice cast.

A big thanks for the source.
