(Note: If you are working towards a custom saber--unlocked at Equite 2--this is a great time to brainstorm a concept before sending it off to the Herald staff!)

Sword name: Harmony

An ancient children's tale once described two sister goddesses, Celestia and Luna, who had dominion over the sun and moon (respectively) and took the form of beautiful alicorns. Together the sisters maintained the delicate balance between day and night. When the younger sister, Luna, because jealous of the older and refused to lower the moon the world came out of balance and all suffered. Eventually the sisters were reconciled and balance was restored. There are many interpretations to the story but the most common is a message of how seemingly contradictory forces are actually part of an indivisible whole. Day must follow night, shadow cannot exist without light, etc.

Turel was always strangely fascinated with the legend of the two sisters and when constructing his Equite lightsaber adopted the image of the legend to symbolize his belief in the Force as an indivisible whole.
