There was some talk about this before, who he was, what his name was, though his race is confirmed as zabrak. He was deffinetly too cool to just die in the first movie.

He wasn't the true apprentice Palpatine had searched for a long time ; Consequently, he would have been killed soon...

Hmm, checked the databank. Theres not a lot of info on him. Indeed, he was a cool character. Too bad he died so early. It seems to me that lucas needed a saber battle, so he just threw maul in for that. He didn't really do much in the movie, he barley said a word. He got into two fights, spoken to palpatine, killed qui gon, and that was about it.

I thought that Darth Maul was supposedly "trained from birth" as a Sith by Palpatine. Maybe that's not correct?

Not likely. Wikipedia is run by fans, the point is that it's a "community effort" by whomever wants to contribute. I could write up some nonesense and post it right now, and unless somebody corrects me, it'll stay there. StarWars.com can make mistakes (and has in the past quite often) but they're infinitely closer to lucas than a fan site like this.

Overall I'm sure it's "accurate" I'd just be curious what sources each tidbit comes from. The article does include some SuperShadow material, immediately making it suspect though (see the notes in the history for Darth Maul's 'real name' for example). Interesting to see where it came from!

The Star Wars Wiki is based on the same software base, and is run on the same kinds of principles and methodology. This particular site was started by WhiteBoy on March 4, 2005.

It's completely unofficial. So the info on it is only as accurate as the sources they may be using and the integrity of those posting/editing it. That better?

Well there's more of the matter that Wikipedia is generally kept up better than any of the other wiki's and is, generally, more reliable, therefore unrelatable.

So Wikipedia is more trustworthy because it's more popular and thus the articles change hands more? Interesting way to put it.

???

This goes against everything I've believed Maul to be. Yes, he was cut down by a Padawan, yes he wasn't overly strong in the force but surely with time and training he would have been able to defeat Obi-Wan and also master the force?

I don't get how you can assume him to be just "fodder".

i didnt look at ur links yet, but his real name was Solan and something..i forgot..but i am even not really sure if that was the name. Palpatine took Maul as Apprentice since Maul was a little boy.

Apparently his "true name" is from a translation of the novel material into another language, which SuperShadow seized upon and then the "Star Wars Wiki" printed as fact.

Anyway, Darth Maul is really Ray Park (with the voice of Peter Serafinowicz).

Hmmm... nothing about his signature is breaking rules, and I don't think you're in a place to tell anyone what to do.

I'd like to tell you to not bump threads unless you have a valuable contribution.

Especially Kurgan, the Administrator and his sig is great, it's only annoying to him because he is a n00b.

LOL. Who you calling a n00b, man? What does that have to do with anything? How does being a n00b automatically constitute irritance at a certain sig? I like the sig myself, I wonder if anyone who joins today likes it. If they do will they not be n00bs? I'm confused.

ANYWAY, Darth Maul. Would the great Sith plan have worked if he survived and remained the apprentice throughout the prequels? Sidious seemed to warm to the idea of expendable's after Maul's death but if Sidious worked so hard on Maul and Maul survived to remain his apprentice would he be expendable or would he be a precious commodity in the Sith way of thinking?

You could argue Sidious only cares about himself but the real question is would he choose Anakin Skywalker, a snot-nosed, whiney asshat Jedi who has a bit of talent in the force or would he chose a man who defines badass who he has trained from childhood?

He might not have liked it because it's about n00bs and he, is one.
Proven by the fact that he thinks he can tell an Admin to change his sig because he finds it annoying.
