Because the Nightsisters made periodic,[26] unpredictable visits to their village, Opress and his brethren were forced to stay in fierce fighting shape. In the throne room of the Count's palace, Opress engaged in his first practice session of lightsaber combat with Dooku,[13] a highly accomplished swordsman who owed his reputation to his previous career as a Jedi Master. He now works as an Article writer for Valnet, Inc, covering the Comic Book Resources site. Although Maul wanted to draw out his torture of Kenobi, the Nightbrothers soon discovered that they had a stowaway aboard: Asajj Ventress, who had become a bounty hunter and—besides seeking the price on Opress[44]—sought to tie up loose ends with him.

Toomey and the other hunters decided to walk in, and they demanded that Maul and Savage drop their weapons and surrender. The Black Sun council leader, Xomit Grunseit, initially refused to join them as they were not criminals and ordered Maul, Vizsla and Savage dead. A badly damaged, traumatised and half machine mess. Although Kenobi escaped from them with the aid of Asajj Ventress during a confrontation at Raydonia, Opress and Maul continued their plans for revenge and galactic domination, turning to the criminal underworld to achieve their needs. Pre Vizsla and Death Watch then arrived as heroes and staged the capture and imprisonment the criminals, deposing and imprisoning Kryze at the same time.[4][54]. They were surround once outside but quickly reinforced by Death Watch soldiers who battered the Hutt's men. While scouring the Outer Rim for Maul,[1] Opress stopped at the diner Plop Dribble's at a spaceport on the planet Stobar. In Maul's early training Darth Sidious told him the ways of the Dark Side. They met up with a band of bounty hunters outside the diner, and began to send in the hunters to claim the price on their heads. [1] Having retained his loyalty to Mother Talzin, Opress sought an audience with her upon landing at the Nightsister fortress. Savage cried out in pain and temporarily relented his attack, giving Kenobi the opportune moment to sever Savage's arm. Furthermore, the tie-in comic Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir revealed that Mother Talzin was actually Maul's biological mother, explaining her willingness to bring him back. After meeting with the band of bounty hunters outside the diner, Toomey decided to send in a Falleen hunter so that he may help negotiate the two Sith's surrenders.

[13], After witnessing a demonstration of the power of the Force by Dooku, who simultaneously raised a number of heavy stone pillars, Opress was tasked with accomplishing the same feat. As their ship began to descend back towards the planet's surface, Savage lost hope. Due to Jedi beliefs, Grohto could not kill her in order to kill Maul. [15] However, Opress never learned of his relationship to Maul or even of his existence until years later[13] due to the actions of his mother, who hoped that Maul would grow up free from servitude to Mother Talzin, the leader of the Nightsisters.

However, after uniting with Maul, he became more level-headed but was still not able to control his passion, which caused him strife with his brother. As this was not part of Maul's plan, he did not tell them the identity of Darth Sidious. [4][12], They were ambushed by Sugi and Embo. Maul issued a final warning and motioned to Savage when Grunseit refused again. Jiro and his underlings were helpless against Savage and Maul's force powers and quickly found themselves at the duo's mercy. [20] Departing from Serenno, Opress traveled to Katuunko's palace on Toydaria aboard Dooku's solar sailer. Kenobi, preoccupied with fending off Maul, was unable to do more than watch as Savage plunged his crimson blade into Gallia. [13], Believing up until that point that the[13] now-dead Feral[11] had been the last of his kin, Opress had been unaware of his second brother's existence. After further training, Opress proved adept enough to take on two lightsaber duelists at once, as seen when Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi confronted him down on Toydaria and Darth Tyranus' ship.

[8] Furthermore, Darth Plagueis revealed that Maul was half of a clan pair, though the other half was not revealed. Masters When Opress found his brother, Feral was at the mercy of Ventress, who was preparing to kill him with a Force-choke. For all the care and protection that he had afforded Feral up to that point, he derided his brother's pleas for mercy and strangled him in a single stroke[11] in a monstrous display of cruelty. Despite Opress's pleas for forgiveness, Dooku subjected his apprentice to a bout of Force lightning for his disobedience, stopped only by an uninvited arrival the bridge: Asajj Ventress, who had deemed it time to execute her revenge. The brothers quickly recovered and attacked Sidious in unison, instigating a fierce duel. [31] The two other warriors fell to Ventress's deadly chain-sickle in quick succession, but Opress managed to pinpoint Ventress's third strike in time to pull himself and Feral out of harm's way. [13], Skywalker forced a bystanding B1 battle droid in the direction of Opress, who simply threw the droid aside and relentlessly continued their duel. It was, nonetheless, an improvement. The trio then left for Nal Hutta, where they tried to recruit the Hutts into the fold. Dispatched alone to the Devaron system aboard Dooku's personal Punworcca 116-class interstellar sloop complete with an FA-4 pilot droid, Opress proceeded to the Temple of Eedit, where a battle for control of the outpost was already raging between Republic and Confederate forces.
