"To the one called Maw: a bitter individual that loathes all and holds loyalty to few. A strong and formidable foe. For every cord of muscle, there is hatred. It is this hate that keeps his aging body strong."
―Qu Rahn as a Force ghost, to Kyle Katarn
Maw is one of the members of the Dark Jedi. He appears in the first cutscene of Jedi Knight in a black cloak. He lost his legs after Rahn cuts them off with a lightsaber. Maw fights Kyle using a special hover device that replaces his missing legs.
Maw is said to gain strength from his own anger. Being a Dark Jedi, he is constantly fueled by rage. He was also able to induce rage within Kyle through his re-telling of Morgan Katarn's gruesome death.
Maw, apart from Gorc, can be considered the brute-force bruiser of Jerec's group. His mastery over the Force is a valuable weapon, coupled with his near-infinite rage and his intimidating strength, Maw is a threat to be reckoned with, even without his legs.
