The use of a lightsaber was uncommon for Dragus who more often than not relied on his great affinity for the Dark Side of the Force. Unfortunately even with all the power he commanded, the use of melee combat proved unavoidable. He constructed his lightsaber using the resources that were most commonly available to his Order. The Sith Lord controlled M'haeli which was where he gathered a set of nextor and dragite crystals to use in the construction of his lightsaber. The nextor crystal generated a highly volatile, yet powerful blade. Additionally, the dragite crystal caused the blade to resonate loudly when struck, inflicting a minor amount of sonic damage. The combination created a lightsaber that struck with the impact of a sledgehammer. It was as likely to slice through and cauterize a wound as it was to rupture the flesh around the point of impact. Due to the energy blades unusual effects, the hilt had to be composed of impervium in order to protect its internal components. Its design employed a bifurcating cyclical-ignition pulse that allowed the blade to operate underwater, a useful attribute as Dragus often found himself in wet situations. The energy blade created glowed a deep crimson colour, as was fitting with the owners Sith heritage.

Dragus' lightsaber

Dragus' lightsaber has seen many alterations over its illustrious career at the Famine Lord's side. Originally it consisted of a basic hilt, synthetic crystal, and was very simplistic in design. However, as the Sith Lord's territory and influence grew, so did his access to a variety of resources that would assist him in creating a very volatile weapon.

HiltEdit

Its case consists of impervium found in a deposit on Korriban by Gaiscioch Dearg. The outer shell is anything but elegant, possessing sharpened edges nearer the blade emitter and a gauging hook on the base of the hilt. Hooks and sharp protrusions were actually fairly common of Sith lightsabers in the past, used more for presentation of a sinister looking weapon than actually serving any practical use. That aside, the flat side of the sharpened edges could actually be angled in such a way as to reflect light into the eyes of Dragus' opponents. It was an old trick but one that proved surprisingly effective in this modern age. On the hilt near where Dragus would place his thumb was an activation stud and a small switch used for locking the blade in place. Ordinarily the blade would only remain active while the stud was depressed, though by activating the switch it would remain activated even when the stud was released. Due to the alloy used to construct the hilt, its case appeared silver in hue.

Internal ComponentsEdit

Inside the hilt is a dual combination of crystals that employ a bifurcating cyclical ignition pulse that allows the lightsaber to operate underwater. This was perhaps one of the more useful abilities of the weapon as Dragus often found himself in damp situations. Even during excursions into the sewers and submerged in a sea of excrement, the lighsaber blade could still be activated. The crystals used to create the pulse consisted of Dragus' Vanity, a crystal he personally created, and a dragite crystal found on the Imperial world of M'haeli under the Famine Lord's domain. Beyond the effects of the pulse, the crystals contained in the hilt gave the lightsaber blade several unusual traits. Dragus' Vanity gave the blade its blood red hue and helped to maintain its coherence, while the dragite crystal caused the blade to resonate loudly when struck, inflicting minor sonic damage on anyone in range.

StyleEdit

Though having participated in numerous lightsaber duels, Dragus could hardly be considered a master of lightsaber combat. His chosen style with a lightsaber is also the most basic, Shii-Cho: the way of the Sarlaac. Usually he will fight using a two handed grip on the hilt in order to place more force behind his blows and make use of the special attributes of the crystals contained with its impervium shell.
