Lotho Minor was a world that largely was comprised of junk from other worlds. The atmosphere was capable of producing acid rainstorms. The planet was inhabited by territorial Junkers who scavenged the trash for body parts and were described by Morley as, "A strange bunch."
Mother Talzin, the leader of the Nightsisters, had reason to believe that Darth Maul was alive and in exile somewhere in the Outer Rim Territories. Around 21 BBY, over ten years after Maul's defeat, she gave a special necklace to his brother, Savage Opress, to find Maul again. Opress left, promising Talzin that he would return. Indeed, Maul survived his ordeal on Naboo and returned to prominence during the Clone Wars, living on the planet Lotho Minor in a state of near-madness, his memories lost to him. Nevertheless, he acquired a six-legged cybernetic apparatus to replace his lost lower body. He had his residence in an underground cave, which he shared with an Anacondan named Morley. Eventually, Opress found Maul, and the former Sith Lord was brought back to Dathomir to be treated by Mother Talzin.
