Who is Count Dooku in Star Wars?
Dooku was a Jedi who was born into a wealthy family and was made the heir to the family’s entire wealth. After training, he became the best swordsman in the galaxy and a reputed instructor in the temple. He lived as a Jedi for nearly seventy years, but unfortunately, a destructive battle on the planet Galidraan forced him to question the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order.
After that, he was manipulated by Naboos’ Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, aka Darth Sidious, due to which he ended up becoming the Lord of the Sith.
