"The Confederacy of Independent Systems is honoring Count Dooku with the Raxian Humanitarian Award."
Asajj Ventress, to Quinlan Vos[1]

The Raxian Humanitarian Award was an award presented by the Confederacy of Independent Systems to its leader, former Jedi Master Count Dooku. An extravagant gala was held on the Separatist capital planet of Raxus[1] in 19 BBY[2] to commemorate Dooku receiving the award, at which the count gave a speech on the Separatists' ongoing struggle against the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars, and expressed his gratitude for being honored with the award.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Raxian Humanitarian Award was mentioned in the 2015 novel Dark Disciple, written by Christie Golden and adapted from an unfinished eight-episode story arc for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, written by Katie Lucas, Matt Michnovetz, and Dave Filoni.[1]

  2. Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Character Encyclopedia - Join the Battle! dates the plot to assassinate Count Dooku to 19 years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the film's events in 0 BBY, the plot to assassinate Dooku—as well as the gala on Raxus—must have taken place in 19 BBY.
