Darth Maul surprised the Star Wars Fandom with his brief appearance in “The Phantom Menace” in 1999. In spite of the fact that it’s not very much cherished by fans today, if there’s one good thing about the George Lucas’s Star Wars prequels, it’s Darth Maul. Too awful he died towards the end of the film, or did he not? Well, it turns out that getting slashed into equal parts and getting tossed down a lift shaft doesn’t precisely means death in Star Wars franchise. We have here, 8 staggering facts about Darth Maul:-
1. A Powerful Family.
Amid his initial life on Dathomir, Maul had two siblings: Feral and Savage Opress. After Maul had left his home world with Darth Sidious, both Feral and Savage Opress proceeded with their training, following the conventions of their tribe. In the long run, Opress was picked as a Sith apprentice by the insidious Asajj Ventress. Savage Opress is one of the primary villains from the Clone Wars animated series. Now here is a fucked up tidbit for our readers, how did Ventress test Opress’s loyalty? By ordering him to slaughter his sibling, Feral.
2. The Rancors And Mystery Of Darth Maul’s Tattoos.
Do you recall the Rancor, the toothy creature that nearly ate Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi? Well, it so happens that thing was from the planet Dathomir, like Darth Maul, alongside a group of Force-wielding witches called the Nightsisters. The animated Clone Wars TV show illuminates the points of interest of Maul’s childhood. One of them is that he was the son of a high priestess of the Nightsisters, he grew up honing Force magic, and got a progression of tribal tattoos everywhere on his body.
