FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
Mother Talzin’s cruel magic transformed Savage into a massive, hate-filled dark-side warrior. On Ventress’s orders, he killed the brother he had fought to save. Talzin brought Savage to Count Dooku, who trained him ruthlessly in the ways of the Force and sent him on missions to Devaron and Toydaria.
Ventress invoked the spells binding Savage to the Nightsisters, and joined forces with him in an effort to kill Dooku. In the battle, Savage broke away from both Force users, rejecting their efforts to control him. He returned to Talzin, who sent him into the Outer Rim to find his lost brother, Darth Maul.
