View Full Version : Kyle's lightsaber

02-10-2002, 09:04 PM
As all of you know, Kyle has a blue saber in JO. I was wondering why he didn't have a yellow one since that was the one he had at the end of Jedi Knight and MOTS. Can anyone clear this up for me?

I asked at QuakeCon. They claimed back THEN that it was because it was only a demo. This no longer seems the case, though... They were pretty tight-lipped about the plot back then, though

Maybe he stole one of the sith statue's lightsabers...but then again, those were orange too...

Kyle gets Rahn's Green saber

Boc kills the Green Saber with a rock

Kyle picks up Yun's Yellow saber, uses it for the rest of the game.

Now Jedi Kyle, builds his own Orange Saber for MotS.

It sounds like from the previews that Kyle continued as a Jedi for awhile after MotS, then he dicided to give up the force. My theory is that he got rid of the Orange Saber(because its the one he had when he almost fell to the dark side) after MotS and built a new, Blue Saber.

Then comes his decision to abandon the force for fear of falling to the Dark Side. So he gives his Blue Lightsaber to Luke to hold on to.

Time Passes...

Uh-oh. Bad guys. Kyle must defeat a new enemy, and to do it he needs the force. So he travels to Yavin where under Luke's guidance, he regains some basic force powers and Luke returns Kyle's Blue Saber.

My theory anyways...

Unless I'm color blind, Yun's saber was yellow, not orange. Strangley, Kyle's saber is orange in MotS.

I think your theory about how Kyle gets the blue one sounds legitimate.:)

Alternate interpretation:

1) Kyle gets Rahn's green saber

2) Rahn's saber is smashed by Boc

3) Yun defends Kyle, gets killed by Sariss

4) Kyle gets Yun's yellow saber

5) Kyle builds his own (orange) saber

6) Kyle gives his saber to Luke after falling to the Dark Side on Dromund Kaas

7) Kyle builds a blue saber under Luke's tutelage (bad memories associated with orange saber perhaps?)

Oops. I was thinking Yellow but typed Orange.

7) [Gonk's take on it] Kyle gets GIVEN a saber at the jedi academy, and doesn't build one. Building one would take too long for the situation at hand...

ok so we know the truth now

bastard :D

02-11-2002, 07:22 AM
I have to agree with gonk, it's kind of a logical answer even though gonk nows the plot it's what I would have said to.:)

Perhaps whilst running around Cloud City, Kyle stumbles upon Luke's first lightsaber (Anakin's Blue Saber) and his severed hand. Then he goes to Yavin to give Luke his hand back, but keeps the lightsaber (he's going to all the trouble to get Luke's hand back to him, he ought to get something out of the deal).

Yeah, that's it. There's no other logical solution...

read the thrawn trilogy...

[hater of]gonk, why do u hv 2 spoil everything for us? either way, the blue lightsaber is too typical of a starwars char...not every1 has fought off 7 dark jedi, been saved by 1 of them, learned to become a jedi master, fallen to the dark side, and come back. all by himself(with the exception of mara, for the comeback part). sounds a lil far-fetched when 1 puts it that way, doesn't it? anyways, [hater of]gonks theory sounds correct. >:(

I don't think Katarn builds a saber, it just doesn't sound that way from the plot.

Howell^ why does your sig read "can you this read this?" only backwards?

02-11-2002, 09:21 AM
Kyle's definitely not using Luke's first. First off, as Howell points out, the Thrawn trilogy provides an answer to that, second, Luke's first was sort of a light-blue-green. almost a teal. Third, the Lightsabre handles are different.

02-11-2002, 09:30 AM
I don't think its Luke's old saber, there isn't any question there. But as GonkH8er pointed out he probly wouldn't have time to build one. Maybe with Lukes help he could build one fairly quick though?

Of course Kyle isn't using Luke's first saber! I thought the part about giving Luke his hand back would give away that it was sarcasm.

Blue is the best looking color for a lightsaber. I'm glad its blue.

maybe they have a cuppboard full of lightsabers at the acedamy, in stock you know

a Lightsaber shop, they sell em there, and you can practice your jedi mind tricks, since they dont accept ANY kind of currency that you have there, so you have to mind trick the guy to get your saber

lol ;)

hmm.....or han builds a lightsaber, gives it to mara, who gives it to luke, who buries it in the ground and dies and kyle goes into the future and digs it up and then goes back in the past and battles....

02-11-2002, 10:52 AM
