Star Wars: Tales of the Fallen Sith, MAUL

Tales of the Fallen Sith: Maul
Tales of the Fallen Sith, Maul

Maul, Darth Maul, The Fallen Sith, The Shadow, whatever you choose to call him, NEEDS his story told. He survived being CUT IN HALF on Naboo by Kenobi and FALLING DOWN A SHAFT! When we next see Maul, he is cosplaying as an insane spider on Lotho Minor years later by Savage Opress. The story of Maul’s demise before his rise in The Clone Wars would add so much to Maul’s story.

To date, Maul’s story has been used as an arc to move the story of others. His inclusion in The Phantom Menace was because someone had to kill Qui-Gon Jinn and then be defeated by Obi-Wan Kenobi to push Anakin to be Obi-Wan’s apprentice and bring Anakin closer to Palpatine.

In The Clone Wars, 10 years after The Phantom Menace his arc is to continue to go after Obi-Wan and allow Ahsoka to shine in season 7 on Mandalor.

His unexpected cameo in Solo severed to remind us that he still existed and to get viewers excited, and it totally worked.

In Rebels, he shows Ezra the dark side and tries to convert him before meeting his end to Obi-Wan on Tattooine.

Maul has mostly been a side character. If he were a professional wrestler, he would be in the upper mid-card. A middle of the road guy who can be called in to put on a good match with the leading wrestlers but will ultimately lose.

There are several stories in legends about Maul, but now that they are not canon, they are similar to fan fiction.

Like Hondo, who we discussed in a previous article, Maul has many different phases where fans would love to know more about his life. The story about how Darth Sidious found him and trained him. Was it similar to how Savage Opress got his power or was it different. How did his training go and what was his ultimate goal with Sidious as Sidious knew about Anakin. Could Maul have just been a place holder like Dooku was?

I would love to know more about what happened following his defeat to Obi-Wan. We know he went crazy but he survived for 10 years and changed planets. There is a story there and we need to hear it!

Rebels takes place 14 years after The Clone Wars ends and Season 3 is a few years after that. Maul is still looking strong and well though a little older. WHAT WAS HE DOING?!?!?! 14+ years of running around and being chased by Inquisitors, how did they know he survived the crash at the end of The Clone Wars?

Star Wars canon has told us about several events of Maul’s life during the 32-37 years of documentation but has left so many gaps open to tell many stories. Telling his story can be a story all its own or as Star Wars has been doing “Tales” series, “Tales of Maul” going over 3-4 different time periods of his life would be appreciated by fans .
