The 100 is one of those shows I will probably never stop thinking about–just like I’ll never stop thinking about Star Wars. So I don’t think it should be any surprise that I wanted to put The 100 characters into the Star Wars universe. I’ll pair them with lightsaber colors, talk about their lives in the galaxy of Jedi and Sith, and explain why I made those choices.

For those that don’t know, there are seven canon colors in the Star Wars universe, but I’ll only be using six. Sorr, fans of The Mandalorian, but I won’t be including the Darksaber. Now, without further ado, here are the Star Wars lives of The 100 characters.

Sheidheda: Blue and Red

Let’s start with Sheidheda. I believe he would’ve been trained with a blue lightsaber by the Jedi but would’ve eventually turned over to the Dark Side and used a red saber. His story reminds me of Anakin Skywalker’s with a little more bloodshed.

Blue lightsabers are typically used by Jedi guardians, and those specific Force users tend to value combat above all else. Sheidheda was all about fighting – so much so that I think he would’ve turned to the dark side quickly.

Bill Cadogan: Purple

We don’t know too much about Bill’s backstory. (That’s why I wanted the prequel show so much.) But let’s just go off of what we know from his few episodes in The 100: Bill did some questionable things for justifiable reasons.

That’s why I think he would’ve wielded a purple saber. I don’t think he would’ve gone the traditional “trained by a Jedi” route, nor would he have been trained by a Sith. In the grand scheme of things, I think he would’ve trained himself on a saber he found.

Charles Pike: Green and Purple

Charles Pike was a little tricky, but I’m pretty sure I know how his life in Star Wars would’ve been. Pike was very knowledgeable and wise, but he let his pride go to his head. That said, I don’t think he would’ve been prideful enough to wield a Sith’s red saber.

If Pike existed in the Star Wars universe, I think he would’ve been trained on a green saber to become a Jedi Consular. However, after becoming a Master, he would’ve switched to a purple lightsaber. Those who toe the line between the light and dark sides usually wield this specific color.

Thelonius Jaha: Green and Purple

For many of the same reasons as Pike, Jaha would wield purple and green lightsabers. Jaha would’ve been trained on a green saber, much like Pike —but then their paths would diverge.

I genuinely think Jaha would’ve left the Jedi Order either right before or after becoming a Master. He would’ve left behind the green saber and crafted his own purple blade as he traveled the universe, living a morally gray life.

Finn Collins: Blue

Finn was possibly the most challenging character to pair with a lightsaber out of the entire cast. He wasn’t leaning one way or the other to me; for the most part, he was just there. But if I had to place him in the Star Wars universe, I think he would be a Jedi who lost his way.

Finn would’ve wielded a blue saber, but that’s only because he is a fighter through and through. Yes, his passion and his skills led him down a dark path that ultimately killed him, but everything he did for the group was done with good intentions.

Jasper Jordan: Not Force-Sensitive

Moving onto Jasper Jordan, his diehard fans are going to hate me for this. But I have to say it: Jasper Jordan is not Force-sensitive at all. To me, he’s like the more annoying version of Poe Dameron from the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Despite not being a Force user, Jasper would be a massive supporter of his Jedi friends. He’d be right there with them, either battling or hiding. But again, he’s sadly not Force-sensitive.

Hope Diyoza: Red and White

I didn’t include Hope Diyoza in my “Sorting The 100 characters into Hogwarts Houses” post, but I had to put her in this one because I knew exactly what her lightsaber color would be. She would start out on a red saber, but she would eventually purify the crystal after her mother’s death.

Hope was trained by someone who is not her mother in The 100, so it makes sense that she wouldn’t have one of her mother’s sabers. She was driven by rage and revenge, but once she saw how destructive that was (and killed her mom), I think she would’ve gone on to purify the crystal to honor her mother.

Charmaine Diyoza: Blue, Purple, and White

Speaking of Hope’s mother, let’s talk about Charmaine Diyoza. From what we know of her backstory, she was a strong fighter and a military leader. That’s why I think she would’ve started out with a blue lightsaber.

She was accused of horrendous things (and actually did some of them). Although Charmaine took those actions for noble reasons–at least in her mind–it’s too simple to say that she’d be a Sith. That’s why I think she toes the line between good and evil instead of veering straight into the dark side.

However, when we see her for the first time in The 100, she’s not that same person. Yes, she does some questionable things, but it’s to save her people. I think her time away from Earth helped her come to terms with her past and decide she’s not choosing a side anymore.

Echo: Blue

As much as I don’t care for Echo in general, her character arc was amazing. And while she was technically an antagonist for most of her time before heading off to space, she was never evil.

Echo would’ve wielded a blue lightsaber because she always followed orders, just like a Jedi Knight. So, in the Star Wars universe, she would’ve followed the Jedi oath to protect others for her entire life.

Lexa: Blue and Yellow

CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

The first time we see Lexa, she reminds me of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Lexa sticks to the rules, she doesn’t waver from what she’s been taught her entire life, and she does what is expected of her. And that’s why she would wield a blue lightsaber to begin with.

However, after coming into her own as commander, I think she would’ve started wielding two blades the way she does in the show. One saber would still be blue, and the other would be yellow to show that she’s not just a fighter – she’s a lot wiser now too.

Lincoln: Green

Lincoln from The 100
CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

I wavered back and forth between blue and green for Lincoln, but I think he fits more along the lines of a Jedi Consular than a Jedi Knight. Yes, he’s a good fighter, but he’s also very wise.

For Lincoln, I think he would’ve trained under a Jedi Master with a green saber. After becoming a Master himself, he would have stuck with the Jedi Order, only wavering when he fell in love. He would’ve kept the green saber despite leaving the Jedi Order.

Marcus Kane: Green and White

Marcus was another one of those difficult characters to pair with lightsaber colors. I took a deep look into his motivations and actions. First and foremost, he was not a fighter – he never was, and I doubt he ever would be.

He values knowledge and survival above everything else, so I think he would’ve trained to be a Jedi Consular before leaving the Jedi Order entirely one day. In terms of changing the color of his saber, I think he just would’ve gone searching for Kyber crystal to purify instead of sticking with his green crystal.

Abby Griffin: Green

CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

Much like Marcus, Abby was not a fighter. While she was stubborn and a bit too passionate about some things, she was first and foremost a scientific thinker. I think this would translate to her having a deep connection with the Force.

I think she would’ve trained alongside Marcus – maybe not by the same Master but in the same time period. And while he would’ve left the Jedi Order, I don’t think she would ever do the same. Her entire identity revolved around being a scientist, and I think that she’d follow a similar path in the Star Wars universe.

Madi Griffin: Blue

Madi was raised to be a fighter, even if Clark didn’t mean for it to happen that way. When Clark found Maddie, it was all about survival. And for Madi, survival meant fighting for what she believed in–and fighting for Clark.

I’ll talk about what color Clark wields later, but I’ll give you a little spoiler: it’s not blue. I think Madi would’ve used an old lightsaber that once belonged Clark’s friend–I’ll tell who in a bit–and kept it her entire life as she trained and became a Jedi Master.

Indra: Blue

Indra from The 100

Indra would be a Jedi Knight. No surprises there. She always stuck to her belief system, the way she was taught, and the morals she was raised with. And to me, that exemplifies the best qualities of a Jedi Knight.

And while I could say yellow is the perfect color for her later on in the series, blue is Indra’s Star Wars color through and through. Yellow saber wielders combine combat with wisdom in the Force, but Indra was never like that in The 100. Therefore, she’s a blue lightsaber user.

John Murphy: Red and Blue

When we first see John Murphy, he’s shown to be a bad guy who is turned that way by the actions of the adults around him. I genuinely think if he hadn’t been sent to Earth, he never would’ve experienced his eventual character growth.

I genuinely think he would have been trained by the Sith in the Star Wars universe. However, as we saw in The 100, there’s more to Murphy than just angst. So, though he was trained by a Sith, I think he would’ve turned to the light side and become a Jedi Knight.

Monty Green: Green

I find it ironic that Monty’s lightsaber color matches his last name. I didn’t do it on purpose! The meaning of a green lightsaber matches what Monty is on the inside. Throughout the entire time we see him in the show, he’s not a strong fighter – but he is a good friend.

If Monty was in the Star Wars universe, Jasper would be his Poe Dameron. And yes, I’m comparing Monty to Finn, but it makes sense if you think about it. As for the green lightsaber, Monty would definitely just gravitate more to it than any other color.

Raven Reyes: Green and Yellow

Raven Reyes from The 100
CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

Time talk about Raven, and I’m excited because she’s one of my favorites. Raven would’ve started out with a green lightsaber because she always tried to be the best at technology and science.

However, after losing Finn, she becomes one of the strongest fighters despite having a busted leg. Sure, she can’t run as fast as everyone else, but she would put herself through immense pain just to protect her people. That’s why I think she’d be the perfect person to wield a yellow Lightsaber.

Octavia Blake: Blue, Red, and Yellow

Octavia Blake from The 100
CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

Octavia Blake’s story is similar to Raven’s. Octavia would’ve started on a blue lightsaber that Lincoln gave her when he was training her to fight. And the only reason she trains this way is for survival, not to become a Jedi.

After losing Lincoln, she went as dark as she could in the show. That’s why I think if that translated over to Star Wars, she would’ve joined the dark side. The blue saber she’d discard would be the one Madi was given by Clarke. See, I told you it would all fit together!

Eventually, though, she would’ve purified the red crystal to yellow, symbolizing that she’s come full circle and is now who Lincoln saw when he first met her. They both knew she was a fighter; he just wanted her to see how smart and logical she could be if she really tried.

Bellamy Blake: Purple

Bellamy Blake from The 100
CBS | Warner Bros. | Alloy Entertainment | Bonanza Productions | The CW

I almost put Bellamy as being a non-Force user like Jasper, but it didn’t feel right. From the minute he steps off the ship in the show, Bellamy is shown to be both “good” and “bad.” That’s why I think he just would’ve wielded a purple lightsaber from the beginning.

Not including what happened to him in the last season, I don’t think Bellamy would’ve wavered from his use of a purple saber. He was always a morally grey character, and so are the characters who weild purple sabers in the Star Wars universe.

Clarke Griffin: Green and Purple

Clarke Griffin from The 100

Clarke would have wielded a green lightsaber like her parents. She always tried to be wise, come up with the best ideas and plans, and to survive despite the odds. It wasn’t until she started working with Bellamy that she learned that not everything is as black and white as she was taught.

That’s why I think she would’ve turned to a purple saber as a Jedi Master. But I don’t think she would’ve stuck with the Jedi Order her entire life. We saw her waver in her morality, so I think a purple saber would fit her well.
