It's called Dathomir. It's where Darth Maul was born. It's a heavily matriarchal society where males are seen as inferior and nothing more than sex slaves and the property of females. Darth Maul's mother wanted him to have a better life, so she gave him away when he was still a baby. Unfortunately, the person she gave him to was Darth Sidious (she didn't know who he was), and he tortured and abused Maul for years. So either way, Maul would have had a bad life. It's a very sad irony.
yeah, they have a society where females are hold higher then males so the females the knight sister do magic and trained in fighting. While thew males live tribes. The knight brothers train in fighting and awaiting what seems to be picked to be a warrior or be mated with a female. makes sport tribal like marking and horns like Darth maul and females are white with later added tribal marking to them. the bad part is that sell off they're children and people. making them prone to slavery
"To cheat death is a power ONE has achieved but if we work together, I know we can discover the secret".-Darth Sidious. Now, I am pretty sure he was not just talking about Darth Plagueis. After all, Plagueis never cheated death.
He does look awesome, and I did think he was criminally underused in the movie... but seriously, he was cut in half below the friggin' waist, that's a pretty vital region needed for survival. They got some serious explaining to do...
This. I still can't figure out how he would have lived long enough to even get robot legs on. Yes, the lightsaber would cauterize the wound, but come on. You can't live long without your legs or the lower half of your gut.
Not to mention other vital things... It'll probably be some sort of... "I endured through my hatred and darkness, they sustained me..." bullshit explanation like that, to which I'll smack my forehead and groan and keep watching for I am a complete sucker... Oh Clone Wars, why must it be a love/hate relationship? :/
You hit it right on the head. I looked it up on the Star Wars encyclopedia online, and sure enough, they explained his survival through his hatred. I was thinking, this can't have happened. So that's the one thing I can't stand. I haven't seen the Clone Wars animated series yet, and I'm kindof afraid to. Do you have an opinion on them?
Wait... what? Seriously? I just pulled that out of... really? Survived through his hatred? *Sigh* Yet why should I be surprised... I dunno, I will admit I was excited about Clone Wars given that the 2D mini series back in the early 2000s was awesome. And to be honest, there are a lot of really good episodes with some great character arcs and stories. Problem is... it's been kind of downhill since season 2, season 3 had a lot of average to fairly lame episodes. That's not to say there aren't some occasional good episodes, problem is that most of the stories just feel the same now, very little story and all action filler. Of course... my real problem is that there's just no inherent drama, because we know exactly which characters can't die. I dunno, I still enjoy it for what it is. I say check it out.
The show does have a few points, the show doesn't start so great, with the occasional amazing episode here and there. But then, season 01 ends pretty cool. Season 02 is great, all about bounty hunters and terrorism. Season 03: first half is a bit boring, concentrated more on issues in politics between the Republic & Separatists. But then, the second half is all about the history of the force and the Sith, so that's cool. And season 04, so far, every episode has been pure awesomness, all battles. Plus, with Maul's return, the finale is sure to be great.
There are a few contradictions with things that have already been created in books and such, but Lucas says that "The Clone Wars" is really what he likes as continuity. So, I recommend the show, but just be ready for a small bore at the beginning and at times here and there. But the rest, you will never regret. Also, for your information, they did explain a bit more how Maul survived than just with his pure hatred. Maul also used a secret Sith technique Sidious taught him, which somehow traded life energy for his own sanity. So by keeping himself alive, he slowly went insane. The darkside has lots of secrets, plus with the force, you can almost do anything. Afterall, Vader did say "The ability to destroy a planet is insgnificant, next to the power of the Force". So frankly, anything is possible with the Force, especially the Darkside.
