    How can one see His Imperial Majesty and not be immediately stricken with intense jealousy? It's only natural.

    Ah, so is that what "ninth" is referring to... the number of attempts on Palps life so far?

    Could be relevant, I suppose. If you can fit a comic into 140 characters or less.

    You forgot the most obvious one: DARTH MAUL LIVES!

    I wonder who the adversary is going to be.
    A lot of options...
    Padmé's father? Mas Amedda? Coleman Kcaj?
    They said his son was murdered, so that probably eliminates the characters I came up with.
    By the way, is the 'adversary' the assassin or his boss?

    After thinking about it, I want every "Darth Maul lives... and dies" story to be canon.

    He fights Obi-Wan, dies, lives ten years as a Shelob, rules Mandalore, something something, dies, survives, fights Obi-Wan on Tatooine, dies, survives, fights Vader, dies... survives?!

    Voiceover by Ian McDiarmid: "My former apprentice found something. Something that keeps him alive even when his body is broken again and again. If we capture him, he kills himself, and survives once more. Unless we find out what this power is and if he controls it or it him, he will forever be a threat. You will find out the truth, and do as good job as you did in Ghost Prison."
    Vader: "Yes, master"
    Palpatine: "While you are at it, try to find some new gloves, those are so 1 BBY"

    Darth Maul is Kenny McCormick?

    I'd like it to be that ancient [not-sure-if-he-was] Sith wizard dude who was mentioned in a single WEG book or Gamer article or something.

    Alas, I forget his name, and it obviously will have nothing to do with him, but I've always been interested in that guy. :p

    Be cool if this was an origin story for Cronal. Not holding my breath on that, though.

    We have a winner.

    But hey, they did an origin for Trachta. You never know.

    That was the 9th Assassin. This is the 9th Assassin Mark II.


    Wasn't he a Prophet of the Dark Side before serving the Emperor, though? If so, we know where he originally came from. :p
