"I am committed to the idea of a galaxy ruled by an enlightened leader, with laws that apply universally—not one set for the Core Worlds, another for the Outer Rim worlds."
"An autocracy, guided by the count of Serenno."
"I am ambitious, but not to that degree."
―Count Dooku and Wilhuff Tarkin[2]

Count of Serenno was a title held by Dooku[2] of House Serenno[1] as count of the planet Serenno, with his father Gora and his brother Ramil, who lost the title with the invasion of Serenno, having held the title previously.[1] During a dinner between the two of them, Wilhuff Tarkin once referred to Dooku by this title.[2] Dooku continued to hold the title until his death during the Battle of Coruscant.[3] The cape Dooku wore was the emblem of the Count of Serenno.[4] In 10 BBY, Chrodber served as the Count of Serenno and was present aboard the First Light, a yacht owned by Crimson Dawn crime lord Dryden Vos.[5]

  6. The Star Wars Book dates the launch of the Starlight Beacon to 232 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 232 BBY in the dating system used by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As The High Republic: The Rising Storm is set nearly a year after The High Republic: Light of the Jedi, which features the launch, its events, including the mention of Count Kresto, must occur around 231 BBY.

  8. 8.0 8.1 The Star Wars Book places Dooku's departure from the Jedi Order forty-two years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states that A New Hope begins in 0 BBY, the invasion of Serenno in Dooku: Jedi Lost, which includes Dooku's depature, Ramil's death, and Dooku becoming Count of Serenno, must have occurred in 42 BBY.
