Nameless is an 8-page comic story that appeared in Star Wars Tales 10 and was collected in Star Wars Tales Volume 3. The story was written by Christian Read, art by Chris Slane, colors by Giulia Brusco and Matt Hollingsworth, letters by Jason Hvam and edited by Diana Schutz.

Plot summaryEdit

Darth Sidious questions his apprentice Darth Maul to explain the story behind his new double-bladed lightsaber.

Maul was ordered to the Jentares system by Sidious to kill the Jedi master Siolo'urmanka. But Manka easily defeated Maul's surprise attack, using only a wooden staff.

Having fled, Maul regrouped and constructs his new weapon. In the next fight Maul surprises Manka, stabbing him through the back with the second blade.

Sidious encourages Maul to name the weapon. However Maul does not want it to become anything more than an instrument of murder—and nameless.

Behind the scenesEdit

This story has originally been deemed non-canon.[1] It was later referenced and thus canonized by The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.[source?]

Although there is a reference to Siolo Ur Manka in The Dark Forces Saga, there are a number of continuity discrepancies between this tale and the events of the Star Wars Episode I Journal: Darth Maul.
