Mara Jade limited edition lightsaber- signature edition
Mara Jade was once known as the Emperor’s Hand – a highly skilled assassin and operative who can hear her master, the evil Sith Lord, Emperor Palpatine’s bidding from across the galaxy. Trained since childhood and honed into a weapon Mara learned skills in the Force to serve her dark master.
Being dismayed with Darth Vader after the epic father/son duel with Luke Skywalker on Bespin in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, the Emperor deployed Mara Jade on one of her last missions: assassinate Luke Skywalker. He blamed Skywalker for the feelings of conflict of good and evil within Vader.
In her first unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Skywalker, in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, she infiltrated Jabba’s palace and posed as a dancer named Arica, knowing that he would attempt to rescue his friend, Han Solo. However, Jabba the Hutt ruined her plans by attempting to execute Skywalker and his friends himself at the Great pit of Carkoon, where lived the immense Sarlacc, a vile creature that would digest them over a thousand years.
Mara Jade finally met Luke Skywalker face to face during the events of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s campaign against the New Republic. They had to cooperate to survive the wilderness planet of Myrkr. Witnessing Skywalker’s powerful Jedi abilities, Mara developed a begrudging respect for the Jedi Master. Following the defeat of Thrawn, Luke gave Mara the gift of his first lightsaber, a weapon long thought lost but recovered by agents of the empire.
Eventually the couple realized that they were a perfect match. Despite a decade of tension, the couple ultimately fell in love and wed on Corscant. The couple represented an inspiring ideal and a powerful symbol to a galaxy in turmoil. A former Imperial agent and the galaxy’s most powerful Jed Master had found a way to overcome their differences and fall in love.
Master Replicas hopes that you enjoy adding the Mara Jade’s lightsaber to your Star Wars prop collection.
