“I didn't know Mandalorians developed a type of lightsaber."—Kanan Jarrus and Fenn Rau, on the darksaber
"We didn't, this was one of a kind. Legend tells that it was created over a thousand years ago by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian ever inducted into the Jedi Order. After his passing, the Jedi kept the saber in their temple. That was until members of House Vizsla snuck in and liberated it. They used the saber to unify the people and strike down those who would have opposed them. One time, they ruled all of Mandalore wielding this blade.”
Tarre Vizsla was a male human who was the first Mandalorian to join the Old Jedi Order due to his connection of the Force. According to legend, he was the one who created the darksaber, a unique black-bladed lightsaber which would become the symbol of the Mand'alor—sole leader of the Mandalorian people. After Vizsla's passing, the saber was kept in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant until it was stolen by members of House Vizsla.
