Christopher Lee brought tremendous gravitas to the Star Wars universe in 2002. His speech to an imprisoned Obi-Wan gave us a hauntingly serious villain who walked the line between earnestness and manipulation. Not to mention that he unleashes Sith lightning, handicaps Anakin, and wields a remarkably unique fighting style with his curved-handled crimson lightsaber. Dooku has always been surrounded in a shroud of mystery.
If you’re in search of stories to unravel some of the web of Dooku’s mysterious past, there’s good news! The Expanded Universe is a fantastic place to dive deeper into the identity of the most underrated Sith Lord. In fact, there’s never been a better time to become a fan of Darth Tyranus, as several new stories have been published within the last year.
