Fall to the dark side

Darth Krayt is a proud Jedi Knight. He served the Republic during the Clone Wars and was one of the few survivors of the Jedi Purge. As a young man, he was a Jedi apprentice to Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi. He received basic Jedi training at the Jedi Academy on Coruscant.

Both Arsharad and Anakin served together in the Clone Wars. During one mission, he found himself trapped by Anakin Skywalker. Anakin hated the Tusken family, and what followed was her mother's death at the hands of the Tusken Marauders. Neither of them got along very well.

The tension between them eased only after A'Sharad took off his Tusken cloth to show Anakin that he was alone. Unless A'Sharad knew what Anakin would become, he would probably kill him on the spot.

The Story Behind Darth Krayt's Lightsaber


After turning to the dark side, he wields two red Sith lightsabers. Apart from the design of the hilt, the red lightsaber is very similar to his previous one. This time the hilt is a normal cylindrical shape, not tusk-like. But the hilt looked like a long brown claw. How the lightsaber works without any electronics is unknown. We just know it's made of some sort of coral substance.

His lightsaber is very proficient in the Krayt dragon's Perseverance form. If Darth Krayt vs. Darth Vader had happened, many thought Darth Krayt would have won in a lightsaber duel.
