An Elegant Weapon: Characters with the CONTROL skill add their skill code damage.

Difficult to Use: If an attacking character misses the difficulty number by more than 10 points (the base difficulty: not an opponent’s Parry total), the character has injured himself with the lightsaber blade. The wielding character sustains normal damage.

Shoto Blade: Off-hand Lightsaber with shorter length of blade.

Background: In the years before the Battle of Yavin, Ahsoka Tano used two white lightsabers as her personal weapons. The lightsabers, which had white blades and curved hilts, replaced the lightsabers she used before leaving the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars, which Tano had abandoned in order to fake her death to the Galactic Empire after the Siege of Mandalore.

Tano obtained the kyber crystals used in these lightsabers one year after the end of the Clone Wars, retrieving them from the lightsaber of the Sixth Brother, an Inquisitor she had killed during the Imperial occupation of Raada. Though the crystals originally emitted a red blade, she purified them with the Force, turning them white. The hilts of the lightsabers were originally created from pieces of scrap metal that Tano had acquired over the year since the fall of the Republic, but were later modified to be more functional and decorative.

She first used the lightsabers in battle on Raada just after she had constructed them, rescuing her friend Kaeden Larte and covering the escape of the population of Raada onto arriving evacuation ships. Later, after introducing herself to the Spectres rebel group and Phoenix Cell, Tano fought various Inquisitors with the weapons, before duelling former Sith Lord Maul and her former master Darth Vader on Malachor. After the events on the Sith world, Ahsoka Tano continued to carry her two lightsabers throughout the Galactic Civil War and beyond.
