Darth Maul was ripped from his twin brother, Savage Opress, as a baby when he was given to Darth Sidious and taken to the planet Mustafar. A droid, TD-D9, cared for and trained him by severe “reward and punishment”.
Every once in awhile, Darth Sidious would gauge his progress. Several times, Darth Maul had extensive lacerations and broke bones. Then one day, Darth Sidious tested Darth Maul in which he passed. He was 13 years old. At that point, Darth Sidious destroyed TD-D9, and took Darth Maul to train at a special school on the planet Orsis.
The Orsis Academy trained military and bounty hunters, but Force Users were not allowed at the school. Through some manipulations, Darth Sidious was permitted to have Darth Maul train there. For 4 years, Darth Maul trained, but the Dark Side of the Force took an “interest” in him and he had to leave.
Darth Maul completed his training with Darth Sidious on the planet Hypori for his final test to become a Sith Lord. Darth Sidious announced:
From this day forward, you are a Sith Lord. You have chosen a path of Darkness, the path of power. You are Lord Maul. You are my instrument.
Then “The Phantom Menace” starts.
There were several Star Wars Novels that were released in succession and we read as much as we could to understand how it was possible for a bisected individuals survive and thrive as a cyborg.
What we found it there are many ways of the Dark Side of the Force, that some find unnatural.
On our page, we perform Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Revenge
He believes he is a Sith Lord. He knows that Darth Sidious dumped him. He knows Darth Sidious has a new apprentice, Darth Tyrannus or Count Dooku. He is also bitter that he was beaten by the puny Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. Essentially, Darth Maul seeks revenge.
