“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.”

What she says: I’m okay.

What she really means: IF DARTH SIDIOUS WAS KILLED AND HAD NO OTHER APPRENTICE BESIDES VADER THEN WHO IS SUPREME LEADER SNOKE. DARTH BANE CREATED THE RULE OF TWO AND SIDIOUS SOMEWHAT BROKE IT WHEN HE HAD DARTH MAUL AS AN APPRENTICE BEFORE HE FULLY BECAME THE NEW SITH LORD. DOES THIS MEAN THAT SIDIOUS BROKE THE RULE OF TWO AND HAD ANOTHER APPRENTICE IN SECRET. DID SNOKE FIND SITH HOLOCRONS AND LEARN HIMSELF. IS THE RULE OF TWO EVEN STILL A THING AT ALL OR ARE THERE MORE DARK JEDI. ARE THEY EVEN SITH OR JUST DARK JEDI. WHAT HAPPENED TO BEN SOLO TO MAKE HIM BECOME THE PERSON THAT HE HAS BECOME.

A human nicknamed “Rain,” the girl had not shown any sign of Force potential when a scout came to her in search of recruits to fight in the war against Sith. Rain went off with her cousins to partake in the final campaign, but their ship was attacked, and she fell out. The ship couldn’t recover, leaving her behind. Discovering she was strong with the Force, Rain hoped to be a Jedi Knight, though was prophesied to become a Dark Jedi. Bewildered, she attempted to commit suicide, but levitated to safety after deciding to control her destiny. When two Jedi killed her friend, Rain used the dark side to break their necks, attracting the attention of Darth Bane, who had taken her in as his apprentice. Rain constructed a double-bladed lightsaber that released electrical discharge when the weapon was utilized by anyone other than its owner. Criticizing Bane for betraying her, she decided to hunt her master and wrest from him the title of Dark Lord of the Sith. After a moment during which they were evenly matched, Rain finally defeated Bane and banished his spirit into the void of the Force, forging Darth Zannah as the new Dark Lord of the Sith.

Sithly Words: Darth Bane on the Rule of Two

The Force is not fire. It cannot be passed from one user’s lit torch to another’s and another’s, until an entire hemisphere is illuminated with a blaze of a million lights. […] When all carry a flame, no matter how dim or guttering it may be, they soon conclude they are the brightest stars, around which all others must orbit. Infighting follows, and Jedi victory becomes inevitable.

No, the Force is venom. If it is poured into many cups, it loses its potency until it becomes so diluted it is merely an irritant. Yet pour pour those cups back into a single vessel and you will have the power to stop a Krayt dragon’s heart.

This is the secret. This is the Rule of Two… [x]

“I didn’t really get into [voice work] until the early nineties. I did something when I was a teenager, the animated version of ‘I Dream of Jeannie’, in the Larry Hagman role. […] That would’ve been like [nineteen] seventy-two or three, and I didn’t work again in voice-over…by the time I did it again, it was the Joker. I didn’t know about voice-over agents, specialized just in that; I got 'Jeannie’ through my theatrical agent. When I went to do my first voice-over jobs, I knew who Rob Paulsen was, I knew who Jeff Bennett was, I knew Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Frank Welker, [etc.]. I’m a huge animation fan, I’ve been all my life, and I would tape these things on Saturday morning, I’d watch with the boys and my daughter as they were growing up. But I would freeze-frame on the end credits because I wanted to know who played all these characters! I think they were flattered that I knew who they were. I still remember seeing that episode of 'The Walt Disney Show’ where they showed Clarence Nash doing Donald Duck. It was the first time, I was maybe six or seven, where I go, 'Oh wait a minute, yeah; there are actors that go in and voice cartoons!’
