"The path to evil may bring great power, but not loyalty."
Anakin and Obi-Wan, sent to track down the mysterious figure behind the deaths of several Jedi, soon find themselves on the trail of the monstrous apprentice that Ventress has created: Savage Opress, who has been trained in the ways of the Sith by Dooku.
When Opress returns to Count Dooku after an unsuccessful assignment, Ventress strikes. With Opress at her side, she attacks Dooku. Opress' loyalty is fleeting, however, and Dooku and Ventress discover that this new apprentice has a will of his own.
When Savage returns to Mother Talzin, she gives him a new task: To seek the Outer Rim for his long-lost brother....
Obi-Wan and Anakin pursue Savage Opress, Count Dooku's new apprentice. Upon first glance, Obi-Wan believes the dark warrior to be Darth Maul -- a seeming impossibility -- but there is reason for the strong resemblance.
