Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side, he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
~ Palpatine about the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis

Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you...
~ Darth Plagueis

Darth Plagueis the Wise was a Muun and the master of Darth Sidious. He appears in the Star Wars Legends continuity, which is longer official canon as of the 2014 reboot.

Darth Plagueis was the Sith Master of Darth Sidious, also known as Emperor Palpatine. He was obsessed with the manipulation of midi-chlorians to preserve, extend, and even create life. His birth was orchestrated by Darth Tenebrous, who bought him from his parents once his strength in the Dark Side of the Force was confirmed. Tenebrous trained Plagueis to hide in plain sight as a prominent banking mogul. Using the power he amassed through extreme wealth, Plagueis was able to orchestrate the rise and fall of many star systems, crime lords, and policitians, which threw the Galactic Republic into chaos.

After Darth Plagueis murdered his master, he was determined to meet a different fate. Plagueis planned to end the Rule of Two by discovering the secret of eternal life through the Force, and rule indefinitely. His experimentation with midi-chlorians inadvertently created a child born purely of the Force, named Anakin Skywalker. Darth Plagueis and his apprentice, Darth Sidious, caused many crises throughout the galaxy, destabilizing the Republic and preparing for a war in which they would exterminate the Jedi Order. Plagueis manipulated Palpatine's path to becoming the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, and expected his apprentice to appoint his Master as co-chancellor.

Together, they would rule, and Plagueis would be allowed to devote more time to his obsession of immortality. But on the eve of their victory, Sidious betrayed Plagueis, and murdered him, claiming control of the galaxy for himself. Years later, Sidious (in his civilian guise of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine) recounted Plagueis' story as The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise, an old "Sith legend", to sway Anakin Skywalker to the dark side.
