- "Our friends from the Trade Federation have pledged their support, and when their battle droids are combined with yours, we shall have an army greater than any in the galaxy."
- ―Count Dooku on Geonosis to the council
The Separatist Council, also known as Separatist command, was a governing body, led by Count Dooku, within the Confederacy of Independent Systems. It was made up of a number of Separatist leaders from the various major powers that backed the Separatist cause during the Clone Wars, including the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, the Corporate Alliance, the Commerce Guild, and the InterGalactic Banking Clan. The entire Council was slaughtered by Darth Vader on Mustafar, bringing an end to the Confederacy leadership.
After the Battle of Coruscant the council was placed under the protection of General Greivous. In 19 BBY the council left Utapau to go to Mustafar, where they were brutally murdered by Darth Vader.
Behind the scenesEdit
In Revenge of the Sith, an unidentified Separatist is seated next to Tikkes on Utapau. It should be noted that only members of the council were seated in the scene, but it is not clear if this Separatist was part of the Separatist Council.
