Did anyone within the SW universe care when Maul died?

A question that has occurred to me recently concerns Maul's significance within the galaxy as a whole.

Sidious's left behind a loyal following who continued to fight for their Emperor well beyond his death.

Dooku was remembered as a maverick who took the stand against corruption and bureaucracy. Even in The Clone Wars Episode Heroes on Both Sides this is touched on with the citizens of Raxus "admiring" the good Count.

Even Vader was remembered as a role-model by the likes of Kylo Ren and Snoke.


So what about Maul? From what I can tell, no one gave a rat's ass about him after his death in Rebels. He was used as a tool by Sidious and tossed aside after proving incompetent. He was insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and nobody really cared when he died.


Thoughts??

There was no one alive TO care.

The only person that knew he was still alive was Sidious, and that dude didn't really care for humans, or anything besides his own power, really.

I can only wonder what Quanchi has to say about this. He praises Maul, but for what? Literally nobody cared about him; he carried no legacy.

I'm sure there were those who cared, like those in menial jobs living with relatives in small houses desperately clinging to some rebellious being with whom to belong smile

Indeed. But we should strive to rediscover the lost knowledge and replenish the forums. It is imminent.


On topic: Kenobi cared.smile

It's odd to think Maul himself would care about this question. I don't think many people ever "cared" about him and all of those who did ended up dead one way or another. And that's just the way he liked it.

No one cared about Maul. He was just a tool, Force cannon fodder.

It's true, honestly. Only Savage and Talzin gave a shit about him, and his character has more or less been reduced to pulp. It sucks but it is what it is. Imagine if someone told his TPM-self how his future would be, he would probably have killed himself on the spot then.

Not care about him emotionally, but his significance in the grand scheme of things. He would never go into the history books as he literally accomplished nothing of any true merit. The best he did was command a small gang of pirates, petty criminals, and terrorists and they were all wiped out in a single battle. Maul accomplished nothing in his lifetime, spiraling into mental distress after TPM. He was an insignificant loser sith-wanabe, period.

He only become one of the most powerful and skilled Sith in all of history at the modest age of 22, outsmarted Dooku and Grievous, wiped out the Black Sun single handedly, became Mandalore, murdered one of the most revered Jedi ever to kick off the 1,000 hiatus of the Sith, caused galaxy-wide disturbances due to the mere intent of Savage going to find him, and ultimately caused so many problems for Sidious that he had to be personally confronted and taken care of as a "rival." Sounds like a real scrub.

And that's with him being resurrected in an era filled with beings of unprecedented power (Sidious, Yoda, the Chosen One, Dooku, Windu etc), as a third party with no resources contending with pre-determined plot lines, preventing him from killing anyone despite having ample opportunities to (could have killed Kenobi, Windu, Dooku and Grievous).

Not to mention having to contend with Filoni's unimaginative writing and his boner for making otherwise iconic villains look pathetic and incompetent (Grievous, Dooku, Vader to an extent, etc).

I kind of feel sorry for Kurk and Nadd. They're sort of like the real life versions of your Mauls and TCW Grievous', except it's actually their fault that they present themselves as mentally handicapped toddler-adults who can't form a half decent argument or bait thread to save themselves. They would be wise to revert to lurking like AP and Neph, instead of putting their capabilities (or lackthereof) on display constantly.

I'm addressing the concern that Maul did nothing noteworthy.

Kurk brings up some good points. In the end, in-universe, Maul will be remembered for two things: killing Qui-Gon and then returning to life to stage a coup that ultimately failed. The likes of Vader and Dooku will definitely be thought of as having been of much more importance and influence.
