History[]

Born into the noble houses of Serenno, Dooku was taken into the Jedi Order at a young age. Like most Jedi before him, he was trained primarily by Grand Master Yoda, though Dooku quickly distinguished himself as a prodigy in the Force, passing his trials and ascending to Knighthood, becoming one of the Jedi's finest swordsmen. After decades of loyal devotion to the Jedi Order, Dooku was promoted to Jedi Master, and joined the ranks of the Jedi High Council. Throughout his career, he took on two apprentices, Rael Averross and Qui-Gon Jinn. Like Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn would achieve the rank of Jedi Master, and train multiple apprentices, most notably, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Many years later, Dooku's political views rose to the forefront. He became disullsioned with the Jedi Order for their involvement with the galaxy's now-corrupt government, his reputation among the galaxy's political officials also being outlandish. He formally left the Jedi Order and returned to his noble house on Serenno where he reclaimed the title of Count and the heritage of House Serenno. At some point, he was approached by Darth Sidious, who claimed to shared his views regarding the galaxy, and succesfully turned Dooku to the dark side, bestowing him the title of Darth Tyranus.

Learning of Sidious' ultimate ambitions, Dooku was vital to ensuring their success. Envisioning a conflict that would require a large army for the Galactic Republic, Dooku was tasked with finding a suitable candidate for a clone army. He would encounter the Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Jango Fett and struck a deal with him. Next, with his vast wealth, Dooku aided in the formation of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, establishing a large opposition to the Galactic Republic. Their plans would succesfully culminate in the galaxy-wide conflict known as the Clone Wars.

During the Clone Wars, Dooku assigned his followers, Asajj Ventress and General Grievous to operate as the military leaders of their faction. Dooku instead faced missions critical to the agenda of the Sith Order. Such as having to kill Asajj out of Sidious' concerns her power was too great, and then secretly finding Sith Apprentices to replace her, battling Sidious' former apprentice Darth Maul, who was thought to be dead. And eventually, luring Anakin Skywalker to the dark side of the Force in the hopes of returning the Sith to their former glory as a Sith Empire.

In the final days of the Clone Wars, Dooku was part of Sidious' plan to capture the Supreme Chancellor. However, he was unaware of Sidious' true intentions, and during his final duel with Anakin Skywalker, Dooku was defeated and at Anakin's mercy. After being ordered by Palpatine to execute him, Anakin beheaded Dooku. In the days following his death, Anakin would replace Dooku as the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader. Dooku's hopes for a Sith Empire were crushed as Sidious reorganized the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire.
