Game Note: Savage Opress was powered up by Nightsister Magick increasing some stats.

Background: Savage Opress was the younger brother of Maul and the older brother of Feral. A Force-sensitive Dathomirian Nightbrother, he became a Sith apprentice under Count Dooku and later became a Sith Lord, apprenticed to Maul, who was a renegade Sith Lord during the Clone Wars.

Originally a tribal leader on Dathomir, Opress was handpicked by the Nightsister Asajj Ventress to become her “mate” and servant following her grueling tests of Selection, as part of her bid for revenge on her former Master, the Sith Lord Count Dooku. In accordance with their plot against Dooku, Mother Talzin and her Nightsister witches employed their dark magic to grant Opress fearsome abilities, such as a strong, raw connection to the Force and domineering physical power. After murdering his beloved brother Feral in a display of loyalty to Ventress, Opress entered the Clone Wars as a Dark Acolyte, serving as an enforcer in Dooku’s Confederacy of Independent Systems.

Immediately, Opress established himself as a dangerous warrior and a force to be reckoned with. However, Opress soon realized he was being used by Ventress and when Ventress sprung the trap and tried to defeat Dooku with his help, he betrayed both her and Dooku. He would return to Dathomir, where Mother Talzin sent on a quest to seek his long-lost brother and Talzin’s son Maul. Opress was led to the junkyard world of Lotho Minor by the Talisman of Finding, where he found his brother Maul, a deranged and broken shell of his former self. He brought his brother back to Dathomir and to Talzin, who restored both his mind and his legs. She then left the pair together as Maul became reconnected with the drastically-changed galaxy around him. He and Opress then joined forces, embarking on a quest to exact vengeance on Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, sowing death and chaos throughout the galaxy as they went.

Eventually, Opress was forced to become his brother’s apprentice in accordance with the Rule of Two. After Opress lost his arm in battle against Kenobi on Florrum, the pair fled and eventually allied themselves with Pre Vizsla and Death Watch. Opress continued to serve his brother’s vision as Maul created the Shadow Collective. Their new power conquered Mandalore and killed Obi-Wan’s lover, Duchess Satine Kryze. Opress stood by his brother as he enacted his revenge, but they were soon faced by Maul’s old master, Darth Sidious, who had judged the pair to be a significant threat. Sidious dueled Maul and Savage, and ultimately slew Opress in battle. As the Nightsister magic left Opress’s body, he apologized to his brother and admitted that he was never like him, transforming back to his initial form before dying in Maul’s arms.
