If the trace was correct, I will find them quickly, Master. Savage: They have been restored by Mother Talzin. Maul: It has been so long and my path has been so dark, darker than I ever dreamed it could be. Savage: And yet you survived. Maul: Of course I survived. My hatred kept my spirit intact even though my body was not. Yet I was lost and became a rabid animal and such is how you found me, brother.
I have missed so much. The Force feels out of balance. So it began without me. Savage: You can begin again, brother. Maul: I was apprentice to the most powerful being in the galaxy once. I was destined to become so much more, but I was robbed of that destiny by the Jedi, by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Savage: Then you must have your revenge, my brother.
Maul: Yes, we shall start with revenge. I have been waiting for you. Obi-Wan: I'm not sure I've made your acquaintance. Maul: I am surprised you could have forgotten me so easily after I killed your master and you left me for dead on Naboo. Maul: You may have forgotten me, but I will never forget you. You cannot imagine the depths I would go to to stay alive, fueled by my singular hatred for you. Obi-Wan: That may be so, but I defeated you before, and I can defeat you again.
Maul: Don't be so certain. Obi-Wan: You know, when I cut you in half, I should have aimed for your neck instead. Obi-Wan: I like your new legs. They make you look taller. Your death will be beyond excruciating. You will suffer as I have suffered! How did that make you feel, Obi-Wan? Your rage has unbalanced you. That is not the Jedi way, is it? Vizsla: Do you serve Count Dooku? Maul: I serve no one. Vizsla: I thought there could only be two Sith; a master and an apprentice.
The true Lords of the Sith. Vizsla: What happened to your ship? Vizsla: Do you know which Jedi? Vizsla: And what do you seek now, Sith? Vizsla: The duchess has powerful allies, including your Jedi friend, Kenobi. He is also responsible for Was Plagueis in phantom menace? exile. Perhaps fortune brought us together.
Maul: It is the will of the Force. We can help you reclaim Mandalore. And punish Kenobi for his trespasses. Bo-Katan: We allied ourselves with Sith before. Count Dooku, he betrayed us. Sith are no better than Jedi. They claim to be powerful, but we put these two back together after the Jedi gutted them. Maul: Doubt will only lead to failure. Our combined strength will be rewarded.
Mandalore will be yours, and Kenobi, this Sith pretender Dooku, and all our enemies will fall. And only the strongest shall rule Mandalore! No outsider will ever rule Mandalore. Maul: If you do not join me, you will all die. Maul: Unfortunately for you, history will not see it that way. You think you know me? It was I who languished for years thinking of nothing but you! And now, the perfect tool for my vengeance is in front of us.
I never planned on killing you, but I will make you share my pain, Kenobi. A presence I haven't felt since. Sidious: I am most impressed to see you have survived Was Plagueis in phantom menace?
injuries. Maul: I used your training, Master. And I have built all this in hopes of returning to your side. Sidious: How unfortunate that you are attempting to deceive me. Sidious: You have become a rival! I won't tell you anything. Maul: How charming that you actually believe that statement to be true. All part of the plan. What are you talking about?
The only plan that matters. Not even I was made aware of its grand design, but I played my part. And do you know what happened to me?
But I survived, and I can thrive in the chaos that is to come. Saxon, information is a valuable commodity. See to it that the Prime Minister does not become an asset to our enemy.
Gar Saxon: Yes, my lord. Maul: Now, there are some things I need to know, and you're going to help me. We can go round and round in this circle if you want. Jesse: I ain't telling you anything. Maul: It is not up to you. Your mind will speak, or it will break. Who is this Ahsoka Tano? At the time I thought Dooku was an old fool. But now, now I see he and I are the same. The dark side has never been stronger. It is not the way of your people to hide, here in the gutters. If you die, I promise you it will be on the field of Was Plagueis in phantom menace?.
Ahsoka: Care to tell me what this is all about? Or would you rather save it for the Council? You are the one that I wish to speak with. Were you not cast out of your Order? Maul: Yes, but you were motivated to leave by the hypocrisy of the Jedi Council. We were both tools for greater powers. Ahsoka: I am here to bring you to justice. Maul: Justice is merely the construct of the current power base.
A base, which, according to my calculations, is about to change. Ahsoka: And Darth Sidious is behind it?
Maul: He is behind everything. In the shadows, always, but soon, very soon, he will reveal himself. Ahsoka: With your help, the Jedi can stop Sidious before its too late. Maul: Too late for what? It already has and you just can't see it.
There is no justice, no law, no order. Except for the one that will replace it. The time of the Jedi has passed. But together, you and I can. Every choice you have made. Ahsoka: Only for you to take his place! Ahsoka: Is this your doing? Maul: No, no, it was not my doing.
I do not know what has occured, but surely, you have felt it. Ahsoka: The clones turned against me. He turned the Jedi's own army against Was Plagueis in phantom menace?. Please put your weapon away. I mean you no harm.
I'm warning you, old man. It's just, I've been alone so long. It's been years since I've spoken to anyone. Ezra: You live here alone? I've had to scrounge and scrape to survive. I wish I could help you, but I have to get back to my friends. Maul: Well, perhaps I could help you. Maul: Why are you here? Ezra: I'm not gonna tell you that. Maul: You came for the same reason I did, years ago. Ezra: It's in the temple, isn't it?
Maul: And I know the secret way to get inside, but, but I'm too old. I need help to open the door. Maul: Help me and find out. Maul: Do you not trust me? Ezra: I don't know you. Maul: W-Well, then let's change that. Maul: I am the enemy of your enemy now, and I have my own reasons for wanting the Empire to fall. But we have little time. The one they call Vader will be here soon. Kanan: How do you know this? Maul: His dogs will tell him where we are. He will not be able to resist us.
And I'm not convinced we're all on the same side anyway. Ezra: Kanan, we should trust him. He and I took this from the temple together! This is why we came here, right? To find out about the Sith. To find a way to beat them. Ahsoka, you said we came here for knowledge. Ahsoka: Ezra, there is no way a Jedi can unlock that holocron. Maul: But you may unlock the Temple itself. Maul: At the top of the temple is a chamber. Connect the holocron to the obelisk within and you can unlock the ancient knowledge of the Sith.
Ahsoka: Why are you working so hard to keep us here? Maul: I cannot defeat Vader alone. Ezra: I say we stay with him. Well, I say we go, so that settles it. Maul: Are you Was Plagueis in phantom menace? cowards that you would run from this chance to defeat your enemies? We're all on the same side. A rat in the desert. Obi-Wan: Look what I have risen above. Maul: I've come to kill you, but perhaps it's worse to leave you here, festering in your squalor.
Obi-Wan: If you define Was Plagueis in phantom menace? by your power to take life, a desire to dominate, to possess, then you have nothing. Maul: And what do you have? Oh, you have a purpose Was Plagueis in phantom menace?. Perhaps you are protecting something.

This is non-canonical since the special is set after A New Hope and Maul died before A New Hope. Benicio del Toro and Billy Bob Thornton were both considered for the role of Dark Maul before Ray Park was cast.

His take on Maul was cut in favor of Witwer, however.
This is most notably shown during Maul's battle with Ahsoka Tano.
