Count Dooku led the Separatist Alliance throughout the war, turning star systems against the Republic through political maneuverings and military might. He took on apprentices of his own, with the intention of one day succeeding his master. He first trained Asajj Ventress; later, after being ordered to dispose of Ventress, Dooku took on a second apprentice, Savage Opress. The tutelage was short-lived, however, as Opress had been used by Ventress as a tool of revenge against her former master. Toward the end of the war, Dooku took on a third apprentice, the fallen Jedi Quinlan Vos, with whom he plotted to overthrow his master. This apprenticeship, too, was cut short, as Vos was redeemed in the Force with the help of Asajj Ventress.
The final days of the war saw a battle over Coruscant. In a duel aboard the Separatist command ship, Dooku was defeated by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, who beheaded the helpless Dooku at Palpatine's instigation. Dooku was soon replaced as Palpatine's apprentice by Skywalker himself, who fell to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Despite Dooku's death, the plans he helped set into motion during the Clone Wars came to pass, with the destruction of the Jedi Order and the rise of the Galactic Empire.
