Instead, his lack of knowledge about the history of the dark order actually helps him here. The third tactic Maul uses to persuade Ezra is to undermine the bond between Ezra and his Jedi master, Kanan Jarrus. During his training, Sidious took Maul to Malachor to bear witness to a great battle that occurred there between the Jedi and the Sith. Megan Crouse’s work has appeared in Den of Geek, FangirlBlog, and Star Wars Insider. Maul mocked Obi-Wan for having been reduced to "a rat in the desert" while Obi-Wan felt he had risen above Maul, simply as a person. Ezra tells her he saw something, and she responds that … As he ferried Ezra through the underworld of the Sith Temple on Malachor, he tried to convince Ezra to turn to the dark side. It soon became clear that Maul was indeed using Ezra and sought to have him as his apprentice, but was thwarted by Ezra's master, Kanan. The influence of the dark side continues to percolate within Ezra throughout the following season. His plan succeeded and the two old enemies faced each other for what would be the last time. Maul arrogantly underestimated Kanan, believing killing him would be quick and easy. Ezra is swayed because Maul seems to treat him as an equal, but in fact Maul is taking advantage of Ezra’s Force-sensitivity. Maul also had an effect on Ezra with his words, causing him to begin to believe that to fight his enemies, he needed to think like them. Maul shared more secrets of the Dark Side with Ezra, but was disappointed when Ezra refused to strike down the Seventh Sister, leading the former Sith to kill her himself, and admonish Ezra that his hesitation could cost him his life and lives of his friends. Maul shared more secrets of the Dark Side with Ezra, but was disappointed when Ezra refused to strike down the Seventh Sister, leading the former Sith to kill her himself, and admonish Ezra that his hesitation could cost him his life and lives of his friends. Maul’s second tactic to try to appeal to Ezra is to offer a chance for Ezra to hold power over the Empire by using the Sith Temple. Unfortunately, with the likes of Kanan Jarrus and the rest of the Ghost Crew guiding Ezra, Maul failed in tempting him to join his endeavor. 32 comments. With Star Wars Rebels coming to an end on Monday, March 5 at 8:30 p.m. EDT on Disney XD, it’s important to remember that Maul’s influence was a major stepping stone along Ezra Bridger’s Jedi journey. Some of Maul’s first words to him, “You’re with me,” cut the two of them off from the moral context around them. Over ten years later, they met again, Maul pretending to wish to serve Sidious again, but the Sith Lord saw through Maul and duelled him and his brother, the latter of whom he killed while taking Maul to use as he saw fit. Sure, he may be a bit too willing to go along for the ride but he never seems to lose sight of the fact that they’re bad people and consequently never gets too invested. It took … He also further stated that Maul was an "old wound" that Obi-Wan himself must deal with, and not Ezra's responsibility. This also foreshadows Ahsoka Tano’s clash with her own broken master, Anakin Skywalker, later in “Twilight of the Apprentice,” in which Ahsoka and Vader express both their enmity and their trust. Maul seeks the answer to a question, and to get it, he needs another Force user to operate a pair of holocrons with him. It's a … The two are paralleled again when Maul and Ezra work together to block the vision from the holocrons, discovering the prophecy of “twin suns.” However, Ezra is clearly not interested in being Maul’s apprentice any more: instead he confides in Kanan, who agrees that he should pursue the vision. But Kanan remembered his Jedi training, trusted his senses amplified by the Force, and not only bested Maul but thwarted his plans by sending him falling over the edge of the sith temple terrace. Unlike Maul, Ezra had his friends' care anda love for him guide Ezra down the right path. ... Ezra and Luke and Anakin in someway all spent far less … In Maul’s case, he lost what prestige he had as a servant of Darth Sidious, as well as any chance for a peaceful life on Dathomir or elsewhere. To twist his own words, he really could have been destined for so much more. Ezra and Chopper bicker … Ezra is looking for answers, and Maul identifies Ezra’s inexperience in order to use him to further the former Sith’s own ends. Ezra thinks that Kanan doesn’t trust him, taking Kanan’s protectiveness as a sign that the Jedi thinks his student is weak. He trained under Sidiou… When Maul first meets Ezra at the end of season 2, he tells him “the Sith took everything from me. Maul's hatred and bitterness against Sidious (and the Sith as a whole) spurred him to find ancient Sith artifacts to use to exact his revenge. When Maul appeared at the end of Star Wars Rebels, it was not as the assassin he had been in The Phantom Menace, but as a mentor offering Ezra guidance. Later, when they were on Malachor, Ahsoka knew Ezra could take care of himself when he was left alone with Darth Maul. Maul offers him the opportunity to “break his chains,” as the Sith code says.

However, due to the intervention of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Hondo was able to defeat those of his men who had sided with Maul and get many of them back under his command, while Maul and his brother Savage Opress were forced to flee, leading to their eventual alliance with the Death Watch. Even after his lies and deceit have been made known to Ezra, Maul still regarded Ezra as his apprentice and had no qualms holding his friends hostage to get the Sith Holocron (and had no intentions of honoring the agreement of the holocron for the Ghost crew's safety, as he ordered his droids to execute them while he kept Ezra preoccupied). Maul’s comments often seem pragmatic and factual, such as when he says that Kanan’s efforts are “doomed to fail,” but the larger context of Rebels and of the Star Wars saga show that he is wrong. Working together, they formed the criminal syndicate, the Shadow Collective, and lured Maul to Mandalore, where Maul murdered Duchess Satine Kryze (Obi-Wan's old flame) and had him imprisoned to languish and suffer; Obi-Wan eventually escaped. After the former Sith announced he was going to take Ezra on as an apprentice, Ahsoka saught to protect Ezra from Maul, which the Sith Lord attempted to take to his advantage. Maul later reappears in Ezra's life to make the young Jedi an offer. When they met, Maul pretended to be a weak old outcast and won Ezra's sympathy by sharing his losses at the hands of the Sith, which Ezra related to after his parents' deaths. As he wished to do with his brother, Savage Oppress, so long ago. Although, as Maul explained, he no longer dons the mantle of Darth, severing his ties to the Sith, and serving as his own master. Ezra’s brief time at Maul’s side reveals the young Jedi’s vulnerabilities, giving him a greater understanding of where he falls on the spectrum between light and dark. Ezra shot up from where he was laying on, panting as he looked around. Turning on Tano and Jarrus, Maul blinded the latter with his lightsaber. Maul briefly fought Ohnaka's pirate crew during the Clone Wars, having attempted to enlist them in his efforts to built a galactic criminal empire. He slowly but surely gained the boy's confidence and pressured him into opening himself to the Dark Side for power and revenge even though Ezra claimed he just wanted justice. Named as a traitor to the Sith, and proving he wishes to see fellow members of the Dark side suffer, The Inquisitors attacked Maul simultaneously. A Lie. Perhaps a Sith pair might wait, and patiently try to kill each other right outside the door. It's just… a lie. Maul and his "allies" vs the Inquisitors. We have everything you need to know about what happened, right here! Darth Maul maybe didn't know Palps was Darth Sidious. The youngest Inquisitor meeting his end by falling off the temple. Maul and Ezra worked together to enter the temple and ultimately retrieved a Sith holocron, which was essential to reactivating the temple. Somehow, Maul learned of Kanan's former identity, Caleb Dume, and after blackmailing Kanan and Ezra for the Sith Holocron in exchange for the lives of the Ghost crew, he split the two up in order to attempt to kill Kanan again (but Kanan was able to survive Maul's attempt). When Maul was seemingly killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sidious felt no real loss and simply replaced Maul with a new apprentice. Maul and Hondo are not known to have interacted since. We ARE Struggling Together: When the Seventh Sister advises a change of plan to stop the Jedi reaching the pyramid's summit, the Eighth Brother immediately departs to cut off Maul and Ezra. share. According to Maul's voice actor, Sam Witker, Maul desired Ezra not only as an apprentice, but as a "brother of some sort", indicating that his apparent fondness for Ezra was genuine. Obi-Wan Kenobi is the Jedi who cut down Maul and his goals within the Sith. Maul did not care about him. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. It shows how the force see’s things, for example, this is Vader's vision of Luke. As Ezra recovered and Obi-Wan explained to Ezra, Maul manipulated Ezra into seeking out Obi-Wan, trying to manipulate and accelerate events that were already in motion. Maul was using him. This is a tactic that helps him draw Ezra in. Ironically, this sort of opportunistic cruelty is exactly the kind of manipulation that led Maul down a dark path in the first place. Ezra is tempted by his own feelings, including the need for revenge against the Empire for the deaths of his parents, his desire to succeed, and his anger at himself for not being a full-fledged Jedi yet. Desperate to have revenge and escape the planet, Maul becomes clumsier with his efforts to appeal to Ezra’s kind nature. Maul (formerly known as Darth Maul) is a major antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. Palpatine aka Darth Sidious kidnapped Maul from his mother when he was young to raise and train him to be his apprentice. He used Maul as bait to lure out his mother and kill her, and when Maul escaped Sidious no longer considered him a real threat. Ezra doesn’t know the Sith code is being recited to him, or any of the history of the Sith, but he does know that most Jedi don’t draw power from emotion. Voiced by Taylor Gray, Ezra is a 15-year-old street urchin and con artist with Force abilities. In particular, it demonstrates the twisted, mistrustful bond created between Sith. Therefore the void around the holocron is a temptation, a trick designed to both sabotage and invite the Sith tradition of apprentices murdering masters. as he escaped in his ship. Darth Sidious groomed the younger Maul to become a weapon in the hands of the Sith, deadly but disposable. Kanan found an old Temple Guard mask to cover his ruined eyes and stood up to face the deceiver again. Now, after blinding Kanan, Ahsoka intervened and prevented Maul from finishing him. Ahsoka hesitated to team up with him, but reluctantly agreed. Ironically, Maul’s ultimate legacy might live on as a warning to Ezra, who now knows the trickery and temptation of the dark side, and how to avoid it with the help of his friends. Maul fled the planet in one of the Inquisitor’s ship, but he wasn’t done pursuing Bridger. But once Maul made his true intentions known, that he intended to take Ezra away from him, he struck Kanan with his saber, blinding him, and would have killed him had Ahsoka not defended him. save. Maul then puzzled why Obi-Wan would return to this desolate world... unless he had a purpose and correctly deduced Obi-Wan was protecting someone - It was only then did the Jedi Master ignite his lightsaber and the two faced each other. Maul wants Ezra to become the same. Sidious forced Maul to breathe in the ashes of Sith warriors, slain when an ancient weapon was activated in the Sith temple on the planet. Until the finale, his location remained a mystery. Ezra Bridger is listening to the briefing when he hears Maul whispering his name, and sees him standing behind two Rebel troopers in the distance. Their partnership is a story born from the era in which it is set: the dark times, when the Jedi are floundering without structure and the powers of the dark side influence our rebel heroes in mysterious and world-shattering ways. Ahsoka was given the opportunity to kill Maul (since she was no longer a Jedi she could kill an unarmed opponent), but she instead chose to save Rex, who was in peril, which enabled Maul to escape. Underage Relationship! As the two-part season finale goes on, we see the way Maul is using Ezra, as well as the reasons Ezra wants to trust him and the way the Sith Temple itself is set up to foster both trust and betrayal. The dialogue in “Twilight of the Apprentice” points out the similarities between Maul and Ezra: both lost contact with their families because of the dark side, and both feel a need to fight the Empire to regain what they have lost. The difference in their motivations, the difference between revenge and justice, does not matter to the Sith. She podcasts on Western Reaches and Blaster Canon and can be found on Twitter at @blogfullofwords. Darth Vader, likely from the word of mouth of his master Darth Sidious, knew Maul was alive and in hiding. While Maul had come to kill the Jedi he considered "leaving [him] to [his] squalor" and Obi-Wan lectured Maul that the more he took the less he would have. Together they succeeded in taking the Sith Holocron from the Temple of Malachor, and Ezra insisted Maul was on their side. His side was throbbing badly, still hurt from the explosive. He was the former Sith apprentice of Darth Sidious and a master manipulator and Dark side Force user. In turn, each one was beaten back as Maul dropped his feeble old man rouse, and showed the young Inquisitors the true might of a Sith. https://starwarsrebels.fandom.com/wiki/Maul/Relationships?oldid=96708. The above clip from the hour-long March 30 episode of Rebels, shows what happens when Maul encounters the young Jedi hopeful Ezra Bridger as … “I’m sorry that happened to you, Ezra,” he said. It’s a measure of his increasing maturity that Ezra does not demand to be part of that particular fight. Maul was using him. Although Ahsoka didn't regret her choice to save Rex over killing Maul, she nevertheless suffered from guilt over her failure to capture the Dark sider, especially since the Jedi Order was no longer around to protect the galaxy from his wrath. The epic 90-minute conclusion of Star Wars Rebels airs Monday, March 5, beginning 8:30 p.m. EDT on Disney XD. Ezra, Kanan, and Ahsoka arrive at Malachor, a seemingly dead world and home to an ancient Sith Temple, but they are not alone. Sixteen years later, they came face-to-face once again on Malachor. Maul first appeared as the central antagonist of The Phantom Menace, the first film of the prequel trilogy. As announced by The Seventh Sister, rumors of Maul surviving spread. Maul was shown to think little of Ahsoka, as he called her things such as "part-timer" and "Lady Tano" in mockery of her departure from the Jedi Order. However, it reflects more on Palpatine and Anakin's relationship. The image above is one of many visions of the future Vader sees in the place people in the Star Wars universe go after death. Gotta Get Your Head Together : No external attack involved, but when Savage found him, he was often clutching his temples. The obstacles inside the Sith Temple force two people to work together, protect one another’s lives, and achieve together something that is impossible alone. Maul did not care about him. Maul was using them. As Maul fell to the ground, Obi-wan cradled his old enemy in his arms and Maul asked if Obi-Wan was protecting the Chosen One. A lie.

When Maul announced he was taking Ezra away from Kanan, Freddie Prinze Jr. said that Kanan acted like an overprotective father. As soon as Maul begins to tell his own history, Ezra looks intrigued and sympathetic. After a great episode that saw Darth Maul capture the Rebels and send Kanan and Ezra on a desperate quest to get the Sith Holocron back, Ezra and Maul sat down to connect the Sith and Jedi Holocrons. Maul eventually "moved on" from his vendetta against Kenobi, seeking revenge against Sidious above all else. It's just… a lie. The gap over which Ezra must jump to get to the holocron is an especially interesting challenge for Sith pairs. Kanan did not trust Maul even though Ezra insisted the former Sith was on their side, and only tolerated Maul when Ahsoka (reluctantly) agreed they could use Maul's aid. After Ezra made it clear that he would never be Maul's apprentice and refused to abandon his friends, Maul finally saw that the bond he thought the two shared was one-sided and scorned Ezra by expressing his disappointment and mockingly laughed, leaving Ezra behind and going on to find Obi-Wan Kenobi. The temple through which they travel is designed to reinforce the bond between two people. When I read Darth Maul's origin story in the book called The Wrath of Darth Maul a sudden thought eventually crossed my mind: Maul didn't actually fall to the Dark side. Ezra Bridger was tricked by Maul during their mission to Malachor into trusting him, paving the way for a potential master-apprentice relationship between the two. If you’re new to the series, here’s a little introduction to the character of Ezra Bridger.. Out of respect, Obi-wan closed his fallen foe's eyes. Who Is Ezra Bridger? In the Season Two finale “Twilight of the Apprentice,” Ahsoka and Maul both say a variation of the koan, “In order to defeat your enemy, you have to understand them.” Grand Admiral Thrawn will also use this as part of his strategic plans later on. His skills in combat remain unrivaled by most. Hera notices that Ezra is distracted, and reminds him to join the briefing. When Kenobi escaped, Maul tried again by recruiting pirates which didn't succeed either, until he and his brother came to work with the Mandlorian terrorists known as Death Watch. Did Ezra die in Star Wars Rebels?. During the Siege of Mandalore, Maul and Ahsoka had a direct confrontation, in which the ex-Jedi and her comrades briefly managed to capture the former Sith. When Maul introduces himself to Ezra for the first time, he seems a lot weaker than the last time we saw him and it is clear he has aged and not had an easy few years. For a few long moments, both stood still, daring the other to take the first move. The Mandalorian, Chapter 13 has further tied the live-action show into previous Star Wars projects, with a single line potentially teasing the appearance of three major characters from the past. But after weeks, perhaps even months, of searching the desert world without success, Maul used the remains of the Holocrons to lure Ezra to the planet and use him to lure Obi-Wan out. Maul was using them. The deadly fall gives allies an opportunity to betray one another if they are tempted to grab power for themselves, but only if they forget the punishment that is awaiting them after their betrayal.

One of the most telling parts of their conversation is when Maul says that he is seeking revenge. What did Ezra do? However, he goes on to say that this was from a selfish motivation.
