Who is Darth Maul?
If you get to unlock Darth Maul, you might be wondering why Darth Maul is important to fans in LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga? If you’re not familiar with Star Wars lore, here’s an introduction to Darth Maul.
Darth Maul was a Sith Lord. He was the apprentice of the Sith Lord of the time, Darth Sidious. Son of Mother Talzin, Maul was taken as an apprentice by Sidious at a young age. He later mastered the Sith skills and fought Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi and managed to kill Qui-Gon. Obi-Wan bisected Maul with his Lightsaber and believed Maul had died.
Maul came back a decade after his defeat in the clone wars and challenged Kenobi to take revenge. Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated Maul, but he ran away. He then started building his criminal empire. Darth Sidious finally took notice of it and considered it a threat to his plan. Maul was then captured by Darth Sidious but managed to escape with the help of his commandos.
Later on, Galactic Republic overthrew Maul, and he went into hiding for the time being. After the Great Jedi Purge, he managed to build his empire and challenged Kenobi to a duel. Obi-Wan Kenobi finally defeated his old nemesis. And with that, the Story of Maul comes to a full stop.
Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga lets players play with this interesting character once again. Filled with the rage of revenge against his master and the Jedi Master who almost killed him, Darth Maul comes back as an unlockable character in Lego Star Wars the Skywalker Saga.
