"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, to the council on Geonosis[src]

The Separatist Council 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.[1] The entire Council was slaughtered by Darth Vader on Mustafar, bringing an end to the Confederacy leadership.[2]

HistoryEdit

Before the Confederacy of Independent Systems was founded, Count Dooku of Serenno secretly allied with major galactic corporations, including the Techno Union, Commerce Guild, and Trade Federation. While joining the Count was a risk, becoming one of the Confederacy's founding corporations offered them special privileges, and the chief privilege was that the corporation would gain a seat on the council.[5]

In 22 BBY, the council was present on Geonosis and planned with Count Dooku to combat the Republic. By the time of their meeting, the Federation had given Dooku their Droid Army, and the other corporations did the same.[1]

After the Battle of Coruscant, the council was placed under the protection of General Grievous. The council soon left Utapau to go to Mustafar, where they were brutally murdered by Darth Vader.[2]

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.[2]
