Star Words XII: Maul Talks

Part XII of Matril’s series on TPM is up and this time it focuses on the mostly-silent Darth Maul:

In the end, Maul’s terrifying appearance — the nightmarish swirls of red and black, the horns, the glowing eyes, the double-bladed saber he wields with deadly precision — is nothing but a mask to distract us from the true danger, the phantom menace lurking behind it all. And when Maul is killed, it will ultimately prove a hollow victory as the master simply finds a new apprentice and proceeds with his plans for galactic domination. Maul, meanwhile, won’t live to see the Sith destroy the Jedi order and take over the galaxy. He gets to be the face of the surprise reveal – “Whoops, guess the Sith weren’t totally eradicated a thousand years ago after all!” but he reaps none of the rewards. He proved useful for a time, and was then easily discarded for someone with more political savvy, who will in turn be discarded for someone younger and far more powerful.
