If you have not seen any of the animated “Star Wars” collection, you’d in all probability assume that Darth Maul died in “The Phantom Menace,” and his story ended there. However within the animated collection “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels,” Maul returned as one of many major villains. He survived what ought to have been a dying blow, thanks partially to the darkish magick that the entire Dathmiri possess, which flows by their veins and is soaked into the floor of their house planet, Dathomir.
The Nightsisters of Dathomir have a extra informal relationship with dying than most individuals. When a Separatist droid military was dispatched to bloodbath the inhabitants of Dathomir in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” the Nightsisters retaliated through the use of their darkish magick to lift a military of the useless. Those that performed “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” will even have encountered the Nightsister Zombies. They’re described within the recreation’s glossary as being “hostile to all life besides their Nightsister masters” and attacking “in frenzied swarms.”
Whereas Nightsister zombies are actually formidable in numbers (to not point out being moderately scary), they’re solely reanimated corpses, seemingly devoid of any ideas or powers of their very own. Maybe that is why their use within the protection of Dathomir was in the end unsuccessful: the zombies fell when their grasp was killed, and the Separatists worn out virtually the entire witches. Morgan Elsbeth was one of many few who survived and, having already seen a military of the useless fail on Dathomir, she might have plans for one thing extra advanced than the Nightsister zombies we have seen earlier than.
