I Follow No One! I am Darth Maul! I am Sith!

Darth Maul was ripped from his twin brother, Savage Opress, as a baby when he was given to Darth Sidious and taken to the planet Mustafar.  A droid, TD-D9, cared for and trained him by severe “reward and punishment”.

Every once in awhile, Darth Sidious would gauge his progress. Several times, Darth Maul had extensive lacerations and broke bones. Then one day, Darth Sidious tested Darth Maul in which he passed. He was 13 years old. At that point, Darth Sidious destroyed TD-D9, and took Darth Maul to train at a special school on the planet Orsis.

The Orsis Academy trained military and bounty hunters, but Force Users were not allowed at the school. Through some manipulations, Darth Sidious was permitted to have Darth Maul train there. For 4 years, Darth Maul trained, but the Dark Side of the Force took an “interest” in him and he had to leave.

Darth Maul completed his training with Darth Sidious on the planet Hypori for his final test to become a Sith Lord. Darth Sidious announced:

From this day forward, you are a Sith Lord. You have chosen a path of Darkness, the path of power. You are Lord Maul. You are my instrument.

Then “The Phantom Menace” starts.

SWAG77 created our own Darth Maul performance page in 2011, when we discovered that he was back with robot legs.

There were several Star Wars Novels that were released in succession and we read as much as we could to understand how it was possible for a bisected individuals survive and thrive as a cyborg.

What we found it there are many ways of the Dark Side of the Force, that some find unnatural.

On our page, we perform Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Revenge

He believes he is a Sith Lord. He knows that Darth Sidious dumped him. He knows Darth Sidious has a new apprentice, Darth Tyrannus or Count Dooku. He is also bitter that he was beaten by the puny Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. Essentially, Darth Maul seeks revenge.

The voice of Darth Maul is Sam Witwer who also voices the secret apprentice to Darth Vader, Galen Marek or Starkiller, and Emperor Palpatine.

Some find Darth Maul sexy even though he needs to see a dentist

SWAG 77 made our main emblem for Star Wars Celebration as Darth Maul

Juloff Reporting: Duchess Satine Kryze Interview

Oh well the Death Watch (Mando’ade adol Kyr’tsad) is becoming nothing more then a splinter group, thanks to the brave Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his master. The Mandalorian government is controlled by the New Mandalorians, the faction also has the majority of the population. So I believe I do! You can ask my co-workers Prime Minister Almec or even Senator Tal Merrik!

Juloff Reporting: Master Obi-Wan Kenobi’s discussion


Master Qui-gon found him on the planet Tatooine when we had to land Queen Amidala’s ship there cause of some damage going through the blockade at Naboo. Qui-gon said he had the highest midi-clorian count he had ever seen, even more than Master Yoda. Qui-gon thought he was the chosen one from the Jedi prophecy. I hope Master Qui-gon was right. (Sighs)

As for you Queen Amidala you will be safe with me. 

Force to Be Reckoned With

Juloff Reporting: Master Obi-Wan Kenobi’s discussion

Supreme Chancellor Palpatine or Darth Sidious, I presume…


was born and bred on the planet Naboo in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. He attended elite schools from the house Palpatine.

Sadly, he never quite “fit in” to Nabooian society. He was reckless, always getting into trouble, he was a troubled boy and his aspirations were low.

Then a strange Muun named Hego Damask approached him and offered him a different path…

That path was the way of the Sith…

In time he learned many things including great calm, essentially hiding his real being to what was called, “the profane world”, so that the grand plan of the Sith could be manifested.

He first became a Senator of Naboo in the Old Galactic Republic Senate. He had to convince the Queen Padme Amidala to vote of no confidence in Supreme Chancellor Valorum on the taxing of trade routes. Subsequently, the Trade Federation held an embargo on Naboo and the Jedi were sent in to negotiate.

It was then he learned of a little boy strong in the Force named, Anakin Skywalker.

Supreme Chancellor Palpatine was decisive and dictatorial. He often made independent decisions without consulting the body politic. It frustrated the Senators, one of them now being Padme Amidala. But when her life was threatened key vote for militarization, he demanded her to be saved by some “old friends of hers”, Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker his padawan.

Then it was realized that part of the Galactic Republic was being torn apart by planets who were seceding and forming a new Galactic government called the Confederacy of Independent Systems, led by a former Jedi named Count Dooku of the planet Serenno.

A decision had to be made and somehow it was discovered that the Republic had placed an order of clones for a “Grand Army of the Republic” to fight a civil war in the Galaxy. It was dubbed, the Clone Wars.

The Clone Wars is where SWAG 77 is mostly directing the character, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine or Darth Sidious.  From the reading of several novels, comics and reviewing the movies and televisions shows, we have learned key ways to perform Palpatine on social media entertainment.

During the Clone Wars he was guarded and hidden. He was beneficent, though he was a very evil man as a Sith Lord. He used the “art of the small” to suppress his Dark Side presence (Darth Plagueis novel) that took nearly 30 years to perfect.

While performing him actively, we have learned key character attributes: Keep him laughing, make him chuckle and laugh at all things, use subterfuge and subvert what anyone says with a pleasant smile on the face; and always keep him courteous because it throws the Jedi off from pursuing him.

Images that are preferred are from the Clone Wars, but since the actor, Ian McDiarmid has always been identifiable as Palpatine (Darth Sidious) we include those actively in our performances. Unfortunately, in 2012, the actor who voiced the animated Palpatine, Ian Ambercrombie passed. It is unknown who will voice Palpatine. It is suspected that it will be Ian McDiarmid, but that is unclear at the moment. When SWAG77 attended Star Wars Celebration VI, more will be known as he will be there and well will report it to you our fans immediately!
