Meanwhile, however, a conspiracy is brooding against Ventress’ life. Darth Sidious confers with Count Dooku, expressing his concerns about Ventress’ growing power, and orders his disciple to destroy her before she becomes too strong to handle, and Dooku, under the will of his master, is forced to obey. When Ventress calls him for assistance, he abandons her for her supposed failure. Shaken and infuriated, Ventress viciously engages Anakin and Obi-Wan in single combat, which is rudely interrupted by Dooku’s order to have the flagship bombarded by its own forces to ensure her destruction; the combatants barely escape with their lives.

The three Nightsisters travel and penetrate Dooku's palace on Serenno, where they catch him asleep. His senses dulled by Ventress’ poison dart and the cloak of invisibility which surrounds his attackers, Dooku is caught at a disadvantage but fights back furiously, thinking his assassins are Jedi since Mother Talzin has armed Ventress’ team with lightsabers. Nearly beaten, Dooku manages to save himself by blasting the three with Force lightning, evicting them from his palace and disrupting their invisibility. But Mother Talzin is content: With this attempt at his life, she reckons that Dooku will now be more anxious to get himself a new assassin and bodyguard to protect him. As a result, she contacts the Count and suggests a replacement – a male Zabrak warrior from her people – an offer Dooku decides to take.

As a result, she contacts the Count and suggests a replacement a male Zabrak warrior from her people an offer Dooku decides to take.



But Dooku has neither forgotten about nor taken the attempt on his life lightly, and he commands General Grievous to proceed to Dathomir and eradicate the Nightsisters. The droid forces descend upon the initiation festivity in full force, and the Nightsisters prepare for battle. The Nightsisters begin to mount a counterattack under Ventress’ leadership, but as soon as Ventress appears on the battle field, Grievous sends out a group of defoliator tanks to wipe out their opponents with one stroke. Ventress manages to destroy the defoliators and fights her way right up to Grievous, challenging him to single combat, which Grievous readily agrees to.

In the meantime, Mother Talzin calls upon her order’s venerable elder, Old Daka, to allow the reviving of the past Nightsisters with their dark magic, thus creating an army of the dead to repel the Separatists. Old Daka casts forth her power, and the remains of the dead rise from their burial pods and join their living sisters. Talzin uses a lock of Dooku’s hair she had previously taken and stashed away in secret; using it to create a magical voodoo figurine likeness of Dooku, she conducts her magic through it to torment him into rescinding his attack or else suffer an agonizing death.

In a lightsaber duel, Ventress gets the better of Grievous, but the cyborg deviously orders his droids to recommence the attack. Grievous is then about to kill her but the army of the dead start attacking Grievous. Wounded and with her sisters dying around her, Ventress is forced to flee, and summoned by Dooku, Grievous tracks down the origin of Talzin and Daka’s magic. He first kills Daka, disrupting the resurrection magic, and without reinforcements the remnants of the Nightsisters are helplessly slaughtered. Before she can be executed by Grevious, Talzin turns into smoke and vanishes, later appearing before Ventress. The apparition of Talzin encourages her to follow a new path before she dissipates, leaving the desolate Ventress to face an uncertain future.

Once they have arrived and Opress has pinpointed his brother's location in the local junk lands, he callously ditches the captain for flying past the location where Opress's pendant glowed, and proceeds to search for his brother. The amulet Mother Talzin has given him to track his brother soon fails, but a resident Anacondan named Morley offers his guidance. Dodging the place’s indigenous hazards – Fire-breathers, a band of hostile Junkers and a deluge of acid rain – they arrive at a lodge where Opress’ amulet flares back to life, indicating that his brother is nearby. But at this very moment Morley betrays Opress, plunging him down a chute into the junk land’s underworld where his “master” would deal with Opress.

Down in the tunnels beneath the junk, Opress is stalked and attacked by a spider-like creature who is eventually revealed to be the brother Savage has been waiting for: Darth Maul, transformed into a centauroid half-spider cyborg and gone totally insane. It is thought that the native Junkers helped rebuild them as it shown they have knowledge in mechanics, however, this is yet to be confirmed. Morley takes this inopportune moment to reappear, asking for “leftovers”, and under Opress’ tight grip reveals that while he did exploit Maul for his own gain, it was not him who had turned him into a cyborg, before he is choked to death. When Opress talks to him, Maul tells him in between his mad ravings about how he was reduced to this pitiful state and that he seeks revenge on the Jedi, especially the one who did this to him. However, Opress’ quest, and the menace it presents, has not gone unnoticed by the strongest Force wielders in the galaxy, and Yoda has no choice but to reveal to Obi-Wan Kenobi that an old enemy has come back from the dead to haunt him once more.

Reunited, Darth Maul and Savage Opress travel back to Dathomir, where they are led by Mother Talzin to her village, where she removes Maul's spider-like cybernetics and uses magicks to create new cybernetics, as well as restore Maul’s sanity. Once back to full health, Maul decides to wreak his revenge on the man who reduced him to his state: Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Once back to full health, Maul decides to wreak his revenge on the man who reduced him to his state: Obi-Wan Kenobi.



To bring him to them, Maul and Opress travel to a village on the planet Raydonia, slaughter the inhabitants and send a hologram message to the Jedi Temple, challenging Obi-Wan to come to them. Despite Mace Windu’s suggestion to send in a Jedi task force, Obi-Wan decides that he must go alone to rectify his mistake. But as Windu expresses his concerns about this undertaking, Yoda cryptically states that Obi-Wan will not be alone in this endeavor – and as he speaks, in a certain place on Tatooine, Asajj Ventress learns of a reward placed on the head of Savage Opress and goes off after him.

Obi-Wan travels to the Raydonian village and is quickly taken down by Maul and Opress, who take him aboard their hijacked freighter to be tortured to death. However, just before they take off, Ventress has landed on the planet, found their ship and hitched a ride. Appearing before the two brothers, she taunts them, making them abandon an unconscious Obi-Wan to search for her. Ventress returns to Obi-wan, wakes him up and lends him one of her lightsabers for his defense when Maul and Opress return. The two team up in order to fight the brothers, but find themselves outmatched and just barely escape by jettisoning the ship’s cockpit, leaving Maul and Opress adrift. Despite this setback, however, Maul is content that the Jedi will yet come after him once more and that he will get his revenge after all.

Following Obi-Wan's escape, Savage and Maul are on the run, with the Jedi pursuing them. Despite this the brothers leave carnage behind, whereever they show up. After killing two Jedi, they break into a space-station, where after easily defeating the security droids, they find a smaller fortune, which Maul wants to use for his plans. However Maul also wants to put his relationship with Savage into new terms: instead of treating eachother as brothers (which for Savage means equality) he wants a Master-Apprentice relation with (obviously) Savage being the apprentice. The two fight, and Maul wins with ease, and explains that he will complete Savage's training, not as his brother, but as his Master.

Obi-Wan, teamed up his fellow Council member Adi Gallia tracks down the brothers to the spacestation, but they found they've already left. From the pilot of the ship they've stolen, the Jedi learn that Maul headed for Florum- a planet ruled by Hondo Ohnaka's pirate gang.

In the meantime, Maul and Savage lures some of Hondo's men to their ship, and after showing them just how powerful they are, they give them a choice: they can die, or serve them, in which case they'll be handsomely rewarded.
