Count Dooku was a famed and widely heralded Jedi during his days with the order but his abrupt departure and eventual turn to the to to the dark side played a pivotal role in the rise of the Galactic Empire. Giving up his title of Count at a young age to pursue a career as a Jedi knight, he rose to prominence in the order quickly and his skills with a lightsaber led him to become one of the top Jedi.
He became disenchanted with the order after he led a team of Jedi into a brutal fight that left his team massacred. Upon leaving the order, he reclaimed his title of Count and the mountain of financial riches that came with it. While he had become acquainted with Chancellor Palpatine, none of these events transpired at his behest.

His new allegiance proved to be invaluable, helping him set up the pieces of his enormous charade that was to follow in the form of the Clone Wars. Dooku successfully led the separatist movement against the Republic until his master found a more attractive apprentice in the form of Anakin Skywalker.
