    Is Count Dooku aware of palpatine's plan to seduce anakin to the dark side of the force? dooku, as a sith lord and former jedi, seems to be a pretty clever and insightful character. Is he aware that anakin is prophecized to be "The Chosen One?" if so, does he know of his master's plan to seduce skywalker and take him as his new apprentice? If Dooku does know, then he must realize what a threat anakin poses to him personally as the dark lord's current apprentice. So what will he do about it? will he seek to destroy anakin (as he nearly did in their first meeting)? will he seek to take anakin as his own apprentice? i'd like to hear some opinions on this. thanks.

    My guess is that Dooku is aware for the most part, but I don't think he realizes that Sids plans to replace him, or that Anakin is capable.

    He is no doubt aware of the Prophecy, and Anakin being the alleged chosen one.

    Well, Dooku is far from being an ignorant man. I'm sure he has his supicions.

    For what its worth in LoE Sidious tells Dooku to kill Obi Wan and test Anakin in the up coming battle over Corusant. Dooku seems to be the type of guy who is smart enough to put two and two together.

    In Labyrinth of Evil Sidious tells Dooku that if Obi-Wan Kenobi were to be killed Anakin would fall to the dark side.

    I think he was ready for his master to make his move against dooku and dooku knew this would happen sooner or later and it happened sooner and that is the way of the sith if the apprentice would challenge his master then become the master but dooku fail his trial and anakin took up his mantle as sithlord from dooku, even though Anakin didn't know it.

    I think he did know.

    Perhaps Sidious/Palpatine, convinced Dooku that Anakin was a tool in destroying the Jedi. Anakin was after all "The Chosen One"

    I kind of agree with Darth-Fred said, about him knowing about Palpatine seducing him but not knowing that Palpatine plans to replace Dooku with Anakin, so that's my two cents.

    I believe he had his suspicions. It's in a Sith's nature to overthrow his Master. Dooku already had inclinations to do so when he was trying to recruit Obi-Wan. I think he just under estimated Anakin's abilities. He thought that he could handle him with no problem. Only at the end does Dooku know Sidious's true plans.

    If you read LOE Dooku does know palps plan to seduce him, and the begging of the ROTS Novelization.

    *Dooku sees a pair of handcuffs and an erotic feather on a bed with silk and velvet sheets in Palpatine's Sith quarters*

    Dooku: "My master must be attempting to seduce young Skywalker. I must be cautious."

    LOL! ...*shiver* That's wrong...funnier than heck but wrong.

    My advice: Read the novel Episode III Revenge of the Sith. It is out there for all of you now in your good stores. :D You're questions, answered they will be.

    And if you wish to get the book but not spoil the entire movie, read the first few chapters and the answers will be clear.

    Dooku couldn't possibly know. Had he known I think he would have confronted Palpatine himself. Or Dooku might've attempted to offer Anakin the same offer he made to Obi-Wan about destroying the Sith for good.

    But, as argued above, he seems quite an intelligent and alert guy. He should at the least be suspicious, but maybe he is caught off guard when it happens. Unless GL in the mean time decided that he is not so intelligent but just a nice disposable plot device, that is.

    Sorry if that sounded a bit negative, but it would be!
    Dooku is cool :cool:

    According to LoE, Sidious tells him they will test Anakin to get him to turn to the dark side. And from what i've read of the ROTS novel, Dooku is under the impression that he will make Anakin turn to the dark side and will become his master. But he does not know sidious's plan was for anakin to kill dooku and he (sidious) will train Anakin.

    I don't think he was full aware.

    If he was, I believe he would've killed Anakin in AOTC.

    Why woul he wish to die?

    Sidious would've killed Dooku had he slain Anakin in AotC.

    Does Dooku know about the Rule of 2 ?

    And -- how far can we go in discussing ROTS in here ?
