    Prey, that Morley cannot kill on his own.

    It's like the honey guide and the badger - honey guide leads badger to beehive, badger smashes its way in and eats honey - honey guide gets the leftovers (bee grubs).

    Only, instead of luring the killer to the prey, Morley lures the prey to the killer.

    Yes but why are people chasing snakes!? If I see a snake go past I keep walking. It's not luring me anywhere.

    Morley talks. Is good at pretending to be harmless and helpful.

    Talking snakes can be very persuasive. [See The Old Testament.]

    Ah. He lured them with a persuasive argument. Didn't think of that.

    It probably boiled down to:

    "I've found some really valuable junk - follow me to it, and you can have it, in return for food"

    With the junk hunters being gullible, following Morley, being killed by Maul with the Force, and ending up as food.

    I would definitely eat an apple given to me by snake before I ever ate an apple that Scarlett Johansson handed me.
    What's harder to swallow?
    Maul's digestive habits
    Talking Snakes
    Flying Leia
    Crotchety old Luke
    All the above

    This all sounds like good material for a SW Musical .

    However, through his hate and will to survive, Maul used the Force to grab an air vent as he was tumbling down the reactor shaft. He then managed to make it to a trash container.[14] Maul's shattered body was dumped on the junkyard world of Lotho Minor.[21] He lived in the bowels of the planet and had his legs replaced by a six-legged apparatus that allowed him to walk again. During his exile, he made a bargain with a sentient sneaky Anacondan called Morley, who agreed to bring Maul food in return for his leftovers. Over the years, Maul was driven mad with rage and despair, but remained driven by thoughts of revenge against Kenobi.

    The last 2 are perfectly fine. Leia didn't "fly" & plenty of old people are crotchety. I certainly plan to be.
    Jerks.

    The The Sith Hunters comic was the main visual depiction of that sequence of events:

    The thing is. I remember watching the stupid episodes with Maul's revival in TCW. And I can't remember anything of the "explanation". So you could probably literally tell me anything about it, and I'd believe you, because I just remember it being so incredibly stupid and terrible. The snake needed force infused poop from Maul to keep talking? Okay, I'll believe it.

    I took it as the snake luring people to Maul. Maul would eat the heart, liver, brain, whatever a cannibal would eat that belonged to that person, and the snake would get whatever was leftover.

    Morley didn't need any help to talk. We saw a member of his species acting as a bartender on Coruscant earlier in TCW:

    How can a snake pour drinks & make cocktails?
    People say Maul was lucky to grab the air vent & find his way to a junk planet that had a pair of robot legs that were just the right size, but I say finding a co-operative snake who spoke basic & could run a good scam takes the cake.

    The snake bartender probably enjoyed the leftover drinks.

    Or he talked the patrons into pouring their own. The better question is what kind of a moron would hire a snake as a bartender?

    It's something like a mother bird feeding her babies. The snake would grab the bottle with it's mouth, lift it and let the liquid pour into it's mouth, and then spit it into the glass. It's perfectly okay. All of this is perfectly okay.

    Someone who owns a very seedy bar in the depths of Coruscant:

    Presumably they were desperate so hired whoever was willing to do the job, even if they weren't very good at it.

    Must've been no other applicants. Esp ones with opposable thumbs, or limbs of any kind.
