Jedi Master Dooku — that’s Count Dooku when he was still a valued member of the Jedi Order many years before The Clone Wars — made his first appearance in 2019’s Dooku: Jedi Lost. The audio drama by Cavan Scott explored Dooku’s life from his days as a Padawan learner all the way until his departure from the Order as a Master.
The character returned to the spotlight this year in 2022’s Tales of the Jedi. Dooku was the focal point of three of the animated miniseries episodes — one story focused on his relationship with Qui-Gon as his master, another on his frustrations with the Jedi, and the final on his dealings with the Sith and his further descent into the dark side.
In that episode of the series, Dooku looks vastly different from his first canon appearance in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. He even still has a blue lightsaber and, theoretically, different Force abilities than he had as a full Sith apprentice in later years.
Why not add this version of the character to the game? He could even have a few dark side powers as a light side character to add complexity to his kit.
It’s not like there aren’t already multiple versions of other Star Wars characters in the game. Anakin has several (even if you don’t include classic Darth Vader) — from General Skywalker to Lord Vader and a base version as well. Ahsoka now has three separate playable versions.
The game has been adding everything from Legends to comic book characters this year. Why not pull another character from Star Wars animation to mix things up?
