Darth Sidious sends Darth Maul on a mission to eliminate a certain disturbance in the Force. Sidious informs Maul that the phenomenon threatens to wake the Jedi from their complacency and inability to sense the return of the Sith.
Maul tracks his quarry to a cantina on a planet in the Outer Rim. The disturbance is in the form of a Drovian brute called Silus, who is extremely strong in the dark side of the Force. Silus is a champion competitor in a fighting sport that involves use of the Force, and the winning of credits.
When Maul enters, an Aleena called Tabor engages Silus in combat. Tabor is no match for him, and dies quickly.
Maul confronts Silus, and opens a holocommunication channel to his master. Through the holo, Sidious offers Silus an opportunity to become his new apprentice: by giving him a chance to kill Darth Maul. Maul is confused by his Master's apparent betrayal, and turns to great anger. He kills Silus without much effort. Maul later realizes that it was merely a test of his own strength, and a lesson demonstrating that in fear there is power.

This story occurs approximately 33 years before the Battle of Yavin.
