"Remember the first and only reality of the Sith: There can only be two, and you are no longer my apprentice."
―Darth Sidious to his former apprentice Darth Maul[src]
Count Dooku-0

Dooku

Sith, derived from the name of a red-skinned species native to the planet Korriban, is a secretive order devoted to mastering the dark side of the force. Sith culture was originally influenced by the centuries of conflict between the dark side worshipping order and the Jedi, the defenders of the Republic. During the Clone Wars, there were known to be only two, a master and an apprentice, a practice created after the New Sith War by Darth Bane. Before the Great Sith War era, the Sith order, like its Jedi counterpart, had hundreds of thousands of members. However, after the devastation visited upon the order by Republic forces, Darth Bane, one of the last survivors of this period, devised the Rule of Two. The Rule stated that there could be no more than two true members of the Sith Order- a master, and his apprentice, no more no less. This doctrine allowed the order to grow in strength and hide from the Republic for centuries until their existence was revealed during the Invasion of Naboo.

During this invasion, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Sith apprentice Darth Maul would battle and both ultimately die while the Trade Federation, influenced by Maul's master, Sidious, fought against Republic taxation policies under the alias of Palpatine. Obi-Wan Kenobi fought in this duel of the fates as a padawan, appearing to kill Maul. After Maul's apparent death, former Jedi Master Dooku became Sidious's new apprentice, and set about the task of gathering the unhappy corporate forces in the Republic into a Separatist Confederacy, which launched a war for galactic dominance.
