Maul's sabrestaff in Witness me.  On the far left is the dimensions for his original, second in is the dimensions of the new one's segments, inside right is the full length of the new one, and of course, far right is Maul's height by comparison.  He can also switch blade lengths when he decouples the staff with a thumb-switch, which lets him engage in Jar'Kai easier and with a full length single-sabre blade.

Somewhat experimental piece.  This one would actually be Blackbirds: Year Two, but I figured I'd post it anyway.

(He would have had boots, but the left didn't cooperate, so I just cut it off.  Sorry, Maul.)

Shiv, also known as the clone most likely to end up a pinup model without knowing why.

 

Raze!  With explosives in his ears.  Of course.

 

Tally; once he grew his cross out, he grew the rest of it out, too.  Eventually, it gets long enough for him to put it in a bun. XD

 

Husker, lookin' dead serious.  He's the only one in the squad with an identifiable marking visible, given his scars.

Chapter Text

They had gotten a fair idea of the patrol rotation, and it was near midday. The shadows cast by the brutal rock around them were narrow, but incredibly thick. Between the time and the still-falling snow, Brody was able to keep the tower they were under the range of looped for the better part of an hour; even as he stood there looking at the miserable terrain he was sending a third of his squad into, Maul knew he shouldn't be dawdling, he should just turn around and go back to his own group, but it was proving-- difficult.

"Be careful," he said, emphatically. "If it's your life or the scenario, forfeit."

There was no bantering now; Shiv was frowning a little bit as he pulled his bucket off, and Maul felt disgracefully transparent at the look he was getting. "We will," the sergeant said, seriously. "We've got a whole day to make this little trip, I'll make sure we take our time and exercise all due caution."

Maul nodded, after a moment, a quick bob of his head, and tried to force a grin he couldn't really feel. "Remember to point the business end of that away from yourself when you activate it, too," he said, gesturing to where half of his saberstaff was hanging off of Shiv's belt.

Shiv glanced down at it, a smile tugging the corners of his mouth. "Thanks," he answered, dryly but not unkindly, "couldn't have guessed that on my own."

"I'm glad I bothered to climb up here to tell you, then." Maul looked back over his shoulder, back down the chimney, then took the four of them in, trying to calm the twisting anxiety that was showing no sign of abating. "Good hunting."

Shiv shook his head, went to say something, then just reached out and caught Maul by the back of the neck; after stiffening for a moment in surprise, Maul let Shiv draw their brows together, being mindful of horns. "We'll see you tomorrow," Shiv said, with calm certainty. "You be safe."

It was a gesture that generally belonged to the brothers; there was no word Maul knew that could convey what it felt like to be included in it. "We will be," he managed to say, steady by some miracle.

Shiv gave his neck a squeeze -- something that would probably have felt threatening even only months ago and now felt comforting of all things -- then let go and jerked his head to Eight, Castle and Tally. "C'mon, boys, let's go make ourselves inconvenient," he said, with a little grin, before putting his bucket back on.
