Darth Maul by ChunLo Darth Maul by ChunLo
A while ago, somewhere...I guess...

Can’t wait to see Star Wars The Force Awakens...so here’s a tribute to an awesome character design in a not so awesome prequel thing.

Always was fascinated in how Sith build their lightsaber, I imagine very angrily...

I also have prints available on inPRNT!

I can totally imagine maul destroying and repairing his saberstaff like that repeatedly as some form of meditation.

You should read Nameless, when he first fused his lightsaber...

Absolutely beautiful setup here; his expression, the pose, and the light from the crystals, not to mention the inner workings of the saber itself-all very awesome! Also my only real favorite character from that movie; they did a nice prequel book about him.

Well for starters the crystals they use are synthetic. In order to avoid unnecessary conflict

Anger is a big part of sith saber building. The crystals they use are created artificially. They basically cook them in some kind of furnace and focus their hatred/the force into them to shape them


I wonder what would happen if you took one of the crystal gems (in gem form) from Steven universe, and put them in a light saber

There was some lightsaber construction on the 3-D tv show. But never from the Sith.

So what did happen to maul at the end of his story ark in Star Wars the clone wars? Did the emperor kill him or what?

Maul lived and escaped Sidious. We also find out that Mother Talzin is Darth Maul's actual mother. The two of them tried to kill Sidious, Dooku and Grievous together, but Talzin herself is killed and Maul flees into exile, never to become a Sith again.

I do not yet know. But if he does, I'd like to see him fight with them or the inquisitors or possibly even Darth Vader.

He's probably fight the inquisitors to show them who the real sith is and who's more deserving of being one.

He lived, actually. ^^
Just in shame and exile, I would expect, since his life's work has been ruined and such.
