Notes: This ornately decorated lightsaber was passed down the Valdoa line of Jedi for twelve generations, eventually ending up in the hands of the Padawan Drennin Valdoa. Drennin was given the saber as part of a family initiation upon being accepted as Jedi Master Narron's apprentice. Once having learned all he could from Master Narron, the young trainee began his studies in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, learning the ancient ways of lightsaber combat from thousands of different worlds. Young Valdoa hopes to one day be the greatest lightsaber combatant of his time.
Seeing as it is over 1,800 years old, Drennin's lightsaber looks nothing like the other hilt deigns of its era. Rather than having a simple durasteel casing to cover the power cells, the young Padawan's hilt is entirely handcrafted and molded out of a solid piece to gold-chrome dieudarrium, giving it a sleek, elegant appearance. As part of its design, Jedi Knight Torpin Valdoa added a tighter magnetic matrix, condensing the blue beam to 1/2", instead of the normal 1" blade. The handle features a single activator button, and is carried by a large hook crafted onto the bottom of the handgrip.
