    Where was Count Dooku during the events of The Phantom Menace? This is a question that has been on my mind for quite some time now. Was he even a part of the Confederacy of Independent Systems at the time of TPM? It wouldn't have made sense if he was Darth Sidious' apprentice at the time seeing that Darth Maul was his apprentice and there is the rule of two.

    The Confederacy of Independent Systems didn't exist in TPM.

    I believe Dooku was in league with Sidious tho around TPM timeline or at least had ties by then.

    Not quite. Canonically, according to TCW, Count Dooku was already a servant of Sidious at the time of TPM, though not yet his apprentice. But Darth Plagueis, unless I'm mistaken, establishes that Sidious did not recruit Dooku until some time after Maul was defeated. This is because Darth Plagueis came out prior to the Sifo-Dyas arc in TCW which established just how early in the game Dooku joined Sidious.

    Or watch TCW, either or. SW (kind of like comic book heroes) has too many conflicting storylines to know all of them. Find the one you like the most and that's that.

    I don't even know if Lucas had Dooku's character in mind before writing Chapter II.

    Or waiting for George to decide it was always his intention for Dooku to be a main villain from the start but also his intention to not invent him till after the start.
