Dominic bowed his head to hide his face. He knew that the Jedi could feel his presence and there was a good chance that Chewbacca could smell the fear on him. Dominic trained under his uncle, The Emperor Sheev Palpatine who was the master of Darth Vader and is also known by his Sith identity Darth Sidious. He was a widely recognized symbol of evil with piercing yellow eyes and he was able to rejuvenate himself using the dark side after he was thrown down a shaft of The Death Star. When Palpatine was finally defeated and destroyed Dominic was the last remaining Sith taking on the Sith Lord name of Darth Maul.
Dominic or Darth Maul was trained in the ways of the Force, and he became a formidable warrior who was strong with the dark side and he possessed deadly skills in lightsaber combat. He was a scheming mastermind and he wanted to build his own empire by controlling the criminal underworld. Darth Maul heard about a Jedi prophecy, which foretold that the Chosen One would restore balance to the Force by destroying the Sith and he was sneaking into the palace to kill the Chosen One, so that this prophecy would not take place. You will all have to come back tomorrow when I reveal if the dark side takes over the universe or if the force remains with the Chosen One.
