Notes

Lore

Darth Sidious, a Force-sensitive human male from Naboo, was the Dark Lord of the Sith who founded the Galactic Empire after toppling its predecessor, the Galactic Republic from within. For that he sent his apprentice Darth Maul into the Battle of Naboo (Sidious personally took care of it, he made the Trade Federation attack Naboo) to kill some Jedi. After the death of Darth Maul he took a new apprentice, the fallen Jedi Count Dooku, now called Darth Tyranus, and led the galaxy into the Clone Wars. In ~ 19 BBY, several members of the Jedi High Council moved to arrest the Chancellor upon discovering his true identity as the Dark Lord. The attempt ultimately failed, however, due to the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, whom Sidious influenced into betraying the Jedi. Replacing the late Tyranus with Skywalker, who adopted the name of Darth Vader as Sidious' third and final apprentice, the Sith Lords initiated Order 66 and, therefore, began a systematic purge that all but annihilated the Jedi Order. The Clone Wars ended with Sidious' ascension as Emperor of the First Galactic Empire.
