Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Jedi Academy Training Manual
Typically used in the combat training of Jedi apprentices, the R-9 Flash Canister is an explosive device that causes dozens of tiny shells within the canister to burst forth and then detonate, creating a blinding flash of white light and piercing sound. The R-9 Flash Canister has a 3-square Burst radius, and like other Grenades it is designed to explode on contact after it is thrown, effectively causing the bright flash of light in the same round it is hurled.
When you make an Area Attack with a R-9 Flash Canister, you make a single attack roll and compare the result to the Reflex Defense of every target in the grenade's Burst radius. Creatures hit take no damage, but all targets have Total Concealment against the creature until the start of the attacker's next turn. Blind creatures are immune to this effect.
