Who is Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas?
Wednesday, May 25, 2005 by MikeB314 | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk
So, Episode 3 has been out for about a week now, and while I intend to see it in the theater a second time, I don't recall a certain question being answered. There may have been brief mention of it, but I'll have to see it again to find out if I overlooked something. The question is this. Who commissioned the creation of the clone army?
In Epidose 2, the cloners on Kamino informed Obi-Wan that Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas had requested the clone army and asked if he was still a member of the Jedi Council. Obi-Wan says that Sifo-Dyas was killed 10 years prior, which was the time of Episode 1. Jango Fett, who served as the template for the clones, tells Obi-Wan that he was hired by Tyrannus (Count Dooku's Sith name). There's the back story as I remember it.
So who was Sifo-Dyas and did he really commission the clone army? Was it Dooku or Palpatine impersonating him? If not, what was his motivation? Was he in league with the Sith? Was he an unsuspecting victim of a Sith plot? It's clear that Palpatine and Dooku were aware of the clones and that they were part of the master plan, but exactly how they came to be is still a mystery to me. Episode 3 answered most of my questions, but this one is still puzzling.
