- "We seek an army."
"Fools! We are not mercenaries. Dispose of them, keep their ships and weapons."
- ―Darth Maul and Xomit Grunseit
After Darth Maul's return to the galaxy after being in hiding for nearly twelve years, Maul wished to form an army of criminals in order to exact revenge on Obi-Wan Kenobi. After enlisting the help of Pre Vizsla and the Death Watch, Maul traveled to Mustafar to enlist the Black Sun into the Shadow Collective. Grunseit refused the invitation to join with him, and was consequentially killed, along with all his council members, by Savage Opress. After his death, the other members of Grunseit's Black Sun faction, including Captain of the Guard Ziton Moj, swore their allegiance to Maul and the Collective.
