Well, They were more cosmopolitan before, but Maul killed all of that group. Faleen managed to muscle their way to the top and stay there for a while, until Xizor finally fell afoul of Vader.
Xizor's lieutenants weren't Falleen. Actually, I remember Xizor being very unusual for his species, who were usually very isolationist.
Though, come to think of it, Vigo was a Falleen word, which implies a pretty strong Falleen influence on Black Sun.....
I of course love it when things in Star Wars are expanded and used in other stories, but I think Black Sun is something that got hurt in that process, along with a great deal of the believability of Shadows of the Empire. In addition to the already discussed annoyance of having Black Sun seemingly populated by Faleen, I have a really difficult time that Black Sun is a criminal empire that has stood for thousands of years.
Wasn't it Tionese? Or am I thinking of something different?
The Wook says it's old Tionese and cites Shadows of the Empire novel, page 36 as the source.
I just remember in The Coruscant Night Trilogy that a few species were in charge and that the actual "head" was a human.
Edit: Hmm....earlier TCW material establishes Ziro the Hutt as part of Black Sun...and come to think of it, I believe he has the Black Sun symbol tattooed on his chest.
I think it's one thing to have illusions about the endless Falleen being a creative decision rather than a reality of computer animated programming, but it's another to believe that it's that crazy for this one particular group, at this one particular time, being mostly, or even entirely, one species. Every story involving Black Sun is going to have its own unique focus based on its own needs, but the organization as a whole is more than big enough to encompass all kinds of demographics--even some that don't necessarily fit its typical mold.
Yeah. It's a crime gang, so I've just taken this as akin to a crimelord surrounding himself with those closest to him.
If you're a mafia boss, you'll surround yourself with Italians; if you're a Triad, you'll have Chinese underlings. So if you're a Falleen Vigo? Makes sense you'd have your old Falleen flunkies from back home too (especially with how "we're better than you" Falleen are too).
Sir, that is a disgusting stereotype
You deny that Falleen are better than other people?
This is where I would point at my avatar if it was still Xizor from before the boards moved.
Zor, that's despicable. Go reread the Diversity Thread and say 40 Hail Warus.
Did they really need to add the OT quote?
Would it kill them to be original?
Too soon, I'd rather the current arc panned out before doing the Sid/Maul confrontation we knew would eventually come.
So they bring Maul back from the dead only to kill him again? Makes sense. On the other hand, I've actually liked this arc so I'm looking forward to this episode.
Obi-Wan needs to kill Maul again on Naboo for this to all be remedied. So, hopefully not yet.
To be honest, every single preview so far looks like "HAI GUYS WE ARE PAYING HOMAGE TO EPISODE IV. DON'T YOU LOVE EPISODE IV!!?"
Well, at least it wasn't another retread of "a certain point of view".
No, no, no. Anakin needs to kill him.
Anakin: "It's cool Obi-Wan, I'll cut him in half this time."
Obi-Wan: "We've already established that doesn't work!"
Then "Sith Lords are our speciality" becomes all the funnier.
And then they bring Maul back, again. And cut him in half once more and so on.
That's true. What was to be gained from all this Maul stuff?
Both of you are wrong.
While holding Kenobi and Skywalker prisoner, Maul and Savage will both be killed at the exact same time by the true heroine of the Clone Wars.
Hey I was on the wook and saw this and the one after it and saw the timeline as 24-23 BBY. But it's a Clone Wars comic, anybody know anything I don't?
Someone on Wookieepedia may have messed up. It wouldn't be the first time.
