A probe droid was used by a descendant or clone of the Sith Lord Darth Maul during the reign of Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire,[3] between 130 ABY and 138 ABY.[4] The droid model was similar in appearance to[1] the DRK-1 Dark Eye probe droids utilized by the original Maul over a century prior.[5] Consisting primarily of black metal, the spherical droid also featured smaller silver accents, several glowing red lights, and an antenna.[1]

Maul's heir and his apprentice, Darth Talon, used the probe droid to aid in combat[2] during their conquest against Darth Krayt and his One Sith ideology.[3] At the behest of its masters, the droid hacked computers, opened doors, mapped out areas, turned off lights, and gathered general information.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Maul's droid was created as a central piece of gameplay for Red Fly Studio's canceled video game Battle of the Sith Lords. Concept artist Thomas A. Szakolczay created the design for the probe droid. While Szakolczay refers to the droid as "Maul's droid," no official name for the droid has been confirmed.[1]

Players would have been able to play as the droid in first-person view to complete puzzles and aid the game's two main characters in combat.[2] Concepts for Battle of the Sith Lord's main menu and user interface were built around the probe droid. When accessing the menu, the camera would fly inside the droid and pan around to areas that would contain the various options.[1] Prior to the game's cancelation in 2011,[4] a prototype of gameplay involving the probe droid was completed.[2]
