“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Brothers reunited! Darth Maul, the
sinister Sith thought to have been
destroyed so many years ago by Jedi
Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, was found
alive by his brother, Savage Opress,
and taken back to Mother Talzin on
Though Darth Maul’s memory has yet
to be fully restored, his need for
vengeance has awakened, more
powerful than ever….
Reunited, Maul and Savage Opress travel back to Dathomir, where they are led by Mother Talzin to her village, where she removes Maul’s spider-like cybernetics and uses magicks to create new cybernetic legs, as well as restore Maul’s sanity. Once back to full health, Maul decides to wreak his revenge on the man who reduced him to his state: Obi-Wan Kenobi.
To bring him to them, Maul and Opress travel to a village on the planet Raydonia, slaughter the inhabitants and send a hologram message to the Jedi Temple, challenging Obi-Wan to come to them. Despite Mace Windu’s suggestion to send in a Jedi task force, Obi-Wan decides that he must go alone to rectify his mistake. But as Windu expresses his concerns about this undertaking, Yoda cryptically states that Obi-Wan will not be alone in this endeavor – and as he speaks, in a certain place on Tatooine, Asajj Ventress learns of a reward placed on the head of Savage Opress and goes off after him.
Obi-Wan travels to the Raydonian village and is quickly taken down by Maul and Opress, who take him aboard their hijacked freighter to be tortured to death. However, just before they take off, Ventress has landed on the planet, found their ship and hitched a ride. Appearing before the two brothers, she taunts them saying savage is still an animal, making them abandon an unconscious Obi-Wan to search for her. Ventress returns to Obi-Wan, wakes him up and lends him one of her lightsabers for his defense when Maul and Opress return. The two team up in order to fight the brothers, but find themselves outmatched and just barely escape by jettisoning the ship’s cockpit, leaving Maul and Opress adrift. Despite this setback, Maul is satisfied that the Jedi will yet come after him once more and that he will get his revenge after all.
