I still remember the conversation from Knights of the Old Republic II when one of your companions asks if you remember what color your lightsaber was. My character described that his lightsaber had been silver, like the waters in the Room of a Thousand Fountains in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. It’s been more than five years since I played through KotOR II, and the description still rings true with me today. My lightsaber would definitely be silver.
Many Jedi and Sith identify certain aspects of their training or background in the color of their lightsaber. Sith lightsabers are often red due to the tradition of choosing such a color. Jedi lightsabers are typically different according to training, with blue signifying a Jedi Guardian, green a Jedi Consular, and yellow a Jedi Sentinel. Other Jedi break this trend. Mace Windu wielded a purple lightsaber despite his advanced lightsaber training as a Jedi Guardian.
What color would your lightsaber be? Does your choice have some meaning behind it? Would you follow tradition?
