Once you're part of Crimson Dawn, you can't leave.
~ Dryden Vos

The Crimson Dawn is a criminal organization that serves as the main antagonistic faction of Solo: A Star Wars Story. It was a criminal organization founded by former Sith apprentice Darth Maul in the aftermath of the Clone Wars and was formed for the purpose of furthering Maul's agenda and dominance in the criminal underworld. Maul was the true leader while Dryden Vos served as the public face.



During the Clone Wars, Maul was abandoned by Darth Sidious who thought he was dead and he sought to reclaim his place as his apprentice. To do this, he decided to form a criminal alliance of his own to get his attention and managed to get the Death Watch, Black Sun, Pyke Syndicate and the Hutt Cartel to form the Shadow Collective and he would conquer the criminal underworld and become a powerful crime lord. Maul unleashed a reign of terror upon the galaxy and this got the attention of Sidious who traveled to Mandalore only to duel Maul, kill his apprentice and brother, Savage Opress, and take Maul prisoner for much of the war. 

Towards the end of the war in 19 BBY, Maul made it back to Mandalore, but the collective had collapsed during his attempt back and he only had the support of the Death Watch on his side. Renegade members of the Death Watch fought a guerilla war against Maul and his reign over Mandalore and by the end of the Clone Wars, the Republic had invaded Mandalore and Maul was overthrown, but he escaped and fled into hiding.


The Crimson Dawn was formed sometime before 13 BBY from the surviving remnants of the Shadow Collective and reformed them into the Crimson Dawn. It was a well organized and ruthless criminal organization and was known for ruthless efficiency. Maul was its leader, but chose to keep himself hidden and relied on a figurehead to rule publicly and where the rank and file of the organization would answer to. This is where Vos came in and the organization was feared across the galaxy during the reign of the Galactic Empire.
