Forming the Shadow Collective
Maul and Savage could not pilot their escape pod to any nearby system after fleeing Florrum and soon fell unconscious as its power drained.
However, they were soon discovered by the rogue Mandalorian group, Death Watch, led by Pre Vizsla, who boarded the pod and, on Vizslas intent, transported to their base on Zanbar. There they treated the brothers as Maul regained consciousness. When he regained consciousness, Pre Vizsla asked who he was. Maul was going to attack, but Bo-Katan pointed a blaster at a Savage Opress and smiled. He explained that they were Sith but did not work for Count Dooku. When Vizsla asked what happened to their ship, Maul said that Kenobi destroyed it. Maul then agreed to help them reclaim Mandalore.
They traveled to Mustafar to make a treaty with the Black Sun for supplies. When they refused to help, Maul signaled for Savage to throw his lightsaber, decapitating the leaders in one strike. The remaining leader agreed that “after careful consideration,” they would join them.
While regathering on Zanbar, another crime family joined them, The Pykes.
Their next and final target was the Hutts, on Nal Hutta. However, the bounty hunters there put up a good fight, and after the battle, they traveled to Tatooine, finally allying.
In the aftermath of the fight, Maul finally revealed the rest of his plan to Vizsla, which was to rule a crime family, using Mandalore to do it.
Death Watch, Maul, and Savage finally moved in to reclaim Mandalore. Maul devised a plot in which he, Savage, the Black Sun, and the Pykes would attack multiple targets around the capital city, and then Death Watch would arrive and stop the criminals, being viewed as heroes.
After the strategy had been executed without flaw, Vizsla revealed to Maul that he had no interest in the other end of the bargain and threw Maul in prison with Savage.
Maul then escaped prison, appointed Almec as the new Prime Minister, and had a very intense duel with Vizsla to claim the throne. After killing him, he claimed Vizslas Darksaber. Some members of Death Watch joined Maul, while Bo-Katan and other loyal members rebelled and fled.
Discovery by Savage Oppress
After Savage Opress returned to Dathomir, he told Mother Talzin would not be strong enough to defeat them all; Mother Talzin told him he would be and then told him that he had another brother other than Feral named Maul. Mother Talzin had reason to believe Maul was alive; Mother Tazin gave Savage a Nightsisters talisman necklace to help him find his brother. Mother Talzin then sent Savage to search for his long-lost brother Darth Maul who would train him; she said that Darth Maul was living in the Outer Rim. Mother Talzin told Savage that both he and his brother had important destinies to fulfill.
Guided by the Nightsisters talisman necklace, Opress traveled to the Outer Rim planet of Lotho Minor, where he found his brothers dwelling among the planets caves. But upon seeing him, Maul attacked his brother and defeated him, not recognizing him as he still did not possess a majority of his memories. But when the talisman came into Mauls presence, Savage realized it was his indeed his brother and, with this, Maul fled back to his cave.
Afterward, Opress questioned his brother what he had been through in the past years of his exile. But Mauls mind had become so twisted, what Kenobi did to him was all he could recollect. But his need for revenge fueled his soul to continue.
Savage proceeded to take his brother aboard the Turtle tanker and return to Dathomir, where he met with Mother Talzin to have Maul treated. Talzin lured Maul to her lair, where she began to restore him to his original self, creating for him new cybernetic legs from pieces of destroyed Super Battle Droids. Once the transformation was complete, she awoke Maul and departed.
Savage greeted his brother once more as Maul became accustomed to his new legs. Maul informed him of his apprenticeship to Darth Sidious and how he was robbed of his destiny of great powers by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Before leaving the planet with his long-lost brother, Opress assured him he would have his revenge on the Jedi.
Maul lured Obi-Wan to Iridonia after having slaughtered the civilians. Obi-Wan didnt recognize him at first, but Maul spoke of him killing his master and how Obi-Wan left him dead on Naboo. Maul expressed his hatred to Obi-Wan, and it was because of his hatred towards him he survived. Both Savage and Maul then knocked out Kenobi.
Maul then brought the Jedi aboard the Turtle tanker, where they began mercilessly beating him to the point of unconsciousness. Maul then stated he would ensure Kenobi would suffer as he had in past years.
However, Sith Acolyte Asajj Ventress infiltrated the ship and led Maul and Savage away. She then returned to aid Kenobi. Maul and Opress engaged them both in a lightsaber duel, Kenobi armed with one of Ventresss lightsabers. When Opress temporarily overpowered Ventress, Kenobi retrieved his lightsaber from Maul and rearmed her with her other one. During his duel with Kenobi, Maul taunted the Jedi, reminding him of how he was powerless to save his master. This caused Kenobi to become unbalanced, and he was overwhelmed once again. Conceding that they were outmatched, Kenobi told Ventress to make for the cockpit escape pod. In doing this, they only narrowly escaped the Sith brothers.
Despite Kenobis escape, Maul employed patience and suggested to his brother that he do the same. Opress warned him that with the knowledge of his return, the Jedi would pursue them both, which was precisely what Maul anticipated.
After Kenobi and Ventress escaped the two brothers, Maul continued to wreak havoc in the Outer Rim. After slaying a majority of a Jedi task force organized to catch himself and Opress, Maul then raided an InterGalactic Banking Clanspace station for the wealth it contained. The brothers then used this wealth to sway Weequay pirate Jiro and others of Hondo Ohnakas pirate gang to pledge themselves to serve Maul. Setting a course towards Hondos base of operations Maul and Savage led an assault against Hondos pirates. The brothers were interrupted by Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Adi Gallia.
After Savage killed Gallia, the brothers had forced Kenobi to retreat along with Hondos remaining forces into the ruins of the pirate compound. Kenobi and the pirates split up, drawing the brothers attention and the rebel pirates to an ambush. Kenobi alone had engaged the brothers, weakening Savage until a lightsaber deadlock had occurred between the three that cost Savage his left arm in the process. Enraged by this action, Maul released a powerful force wave at Kenobi, which injured him and caused the area to cave in completely. Realizing his plan had failed and with Savage severely weakened, Maul took his brother and retreated.
When they reached the outside of the compound, they ordered Jiro to gather his men to prepare to flee. But his pirates had betrayed him and again returned their allegiance to Ohnaka instead. Hondo knew of the riches in Mauls stolen cargo ship and ordered his men to open fire on the brothers and take their wealth. Maul and Opress fled to their ship while being pursued by the pirates. In the ensuing chase, Maul had his left cybernetic leg blasted off, and the two were barely able to reach the ship. However, before they could take off, one of Hondos pirates fired a rocket into the ships left engine, resulting in the ships plummet towards the surface. Maul and Savage narrowly escaped the crash in the ships escape pod.
The Galactic Republic (Before 22 BBY)
There is very little about Maul’s life and what he was doing before The Phantom Menace. His time was short-lived during Episode one thanks to Obi-Wan. This mini-series and single-issue comic will help fill in Maul’s origins, early life, and early feelings about the Jedi.
