Advanced Jedi Training Droid 6(Talk to my master) 01:05, February 5, 2015 (UTC)
When I first saw AOTC for the first time all those years ago, I took Dooku as a very interesting character; a man who left the order, broke away from the Republic, and founded his own Confederacy. I never really saw him as a "Bad Guy" per-say, more as a man who follows the most convenient path. So why exactly does he tell Obi-wan about Sideous? I always viewed it as-if Dooku was actually trying to form an alliance against Palpatine, even mentioning needing Qui-gon's help. But when Obi-wan openly rejected him, Dooku had no other choice than to follow through with Sideous' plot. This theory somewhat also supports why Dooku erased Kamino from the Jedi Archives. Does this seem plausible, or are there other motives?

In the Legends universe, Dooku wanted the Republic to be replaced by a new government that would be "clean, pure, and direct," a government led by Human authority—an Empire of Men. He would have reformed the Jedi Order into a Sith Army, the Fist of the Empire, an order that would actually enforce peace rather than endlessly negotiate it. He genuinely admired Palpatine's pragmatical shrewdness, and it seems that he followed the Sith Master's plan because he thought that was the fastest, most efficient way to bring the new governement he desired. (All this can be read in the excellent novelization of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.) --Lelal Mekha(Audience Room) 11:00, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
