DESCRIPTION
Gerwald Lechner constructed his own lightsaber using a fractured Krayt Dragon pearl he acquired on a mission to Tatooine. Having felled the beast, the pearl was taken as a souvenir to remember the monumental task of such a kill. When it came time to construct his own saber, rather than use the standard hilt given to all early Knights Obsidian, Gerwald knew it was perfect for use. What he did not expect was the effects the fracture would have on the blade.

The blade itself emitted a black hue with a white core, but due to the fracture the blade seemed unstable. Rather than the crisp and elegant look that most light and plasma produced, Gerwald’s blade was rough, crackling more like lightning, or a flame, than a solid blade. It suited the lupine. The weapon was both refined and yet wild, representing the dual nature of the man who wielded it. Gerwald was both man and wolf, and his blade spoke to that well.

It boasts a solid construction, using phrik for strength, and made to be heavier than average. Gerwald had been used to fighting with broadswords on Stewjon and wanted weight to his weapon. While he is used to it, anyone else who attempts to wield it would find it heavier than what they are used to. This results in slower response time. A mace like pommel ends the weapon which can turn the hilt into a blunt force instrument. Since the blade itself is longer than average, the lightsaber is not fit for close quarter combat. The mace compensates for this slightly.

Overall the weapon is designed to do two things well, kill and defend. It serves the wolf no other purpose.

Hi there I am going to be your judge today.

Above Average is not an acceptable rating under the current template please use a rating such as Large for example instead.
