* AwesomeButImpractical: Double-bladed lightsabers as Blademaster Kas'im explains. Despite its power there are several obvious weaknesses. Such as the user being limited mostly to swings and how vulnerable the hilt is. Its real advantage is how little most know about it, preventing them from using these weaknesses.

Such as the user being limited mostly to swings and how vulnerable the hilt is. Its real advantage is how little most know about it, preventing them from using these weaknesses. Kas'im holds this to be even more true about DualWielding, outright refusing to teach it to any of his students and declaring it to be a useless form that only an idiot would use. [[spoiler:Except this is a lie; Kas'im himself chose dual wielding as his ''true'' fighting style, with his double-bladed lightsaber [[BifurcatedWeapon splitting into two regular ones]]. He refused to teach the technique to anyone so that [[BatmanGambit any student who might betray him would not only know nothing about how to fight a dual-wielder, they would focus all their preparation on the completely different strengths and weaknesses of fighting against a double-bladed lightsaber]].]]



* CameBackStrong: After getting demolished by Sirak Bane is forgotten by most of the academy and his connection to the force is crippled. During this time he begins reading ancient texts in the archives, meets Githany who repairs his force connection and tutors him, while receiving private sword lessons from Kas'im. When Bane faces Sirak again he's not only a superior duelist, but far stronger force user, with a deeper understanding of the Sith's history and philosophy.
