He later informs Plagueis of the deed, who then congratulates Palpatine on "emancipating" himself. Soon, Plagueis takes Palpatine under his wing as his Sith apprentice after revealing to the young man the nature of himself and of the Sith, promptly naming him Darth Sidious.
In the eleven years that follow of Plagueis teaching Sidious the nature of the dark side and the ways of the Sith, Palpatine, as the last of House Palpatine , climbs his way up the political ladder of Naboo to become its ambassador throughout the galaxy. And with the help of new friends like Kinman Doriana and Sate Pestage , Palpatine arranges for the successful assassination of his former mentor and Naboo's representative Senator to the Republic, Vidar Kim.
As a result, Palpatine becomes the new Senator of Naboo, taking a seat in the Republic Senate as Plagueis continues his plans of manipulating midi-chlorians to prolong his own life indefinitely. One such plan involves the cloning industry on the backwater world of Kamino , inadvertently setting the stage for the eventual Clone Wars. Meanwhile, amidst his own political machinations, Palpatine, in his urge to know more about the dark side than what Plagueis teaches him, manages to make a visit to the world of Dathomir , where he encounters a Dathomirian woman who gives him a Zabrak infant simply known as Maul.
Palpatine later has Maul sent to Mustafar , where he could be nurtured at his young age in the dark side of the Force. As Sidious and Plagueis promptly proceed to eliminate their political opponents, Plagueis is attacked during an Order of the Canted Circle ceremony for his assistant Larsh Hill by Maladian assassins. Hill and the other members of the Order of the Canted Circle are killed, but Plagueis, albeit severely wounded, is able to fight off and kill several of the assassins before Palpatine and Sate Pestage arrive to assist the superior Sith Lord.
Palpatine had previously discerned that a powerful political opponent of his, Pax Teem, had outwitted Plagueis and had sent the assassins to kill him and his partners during the Canted Circle ceremony. In retaliation, Palpatine himself personally attacks Teem during a celebratory feast, killing him and all of his guests, leaving no survivors or evidence.
In the aftermath of the attack at the botched ceremony, as Plagueis is forced to wear a transpirator to survive, he becomes more alert than ever about his surroundings, even going so far as forever renouncing sleep, and is even more obsessed with finding a way to live forever. Meanwhile, even though Plagueis managed to kill and then resurrect Darth Venamis in one of his experiments, he finds that he cannot do it again after Venamis dies for good.
More than two decades pass as Palpatine gains more power in the Senate as the reign of Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum comes to an end. The rest of the novel tells the events depicted in other, preexisting Star Wars stories, such as Jedi Council: Darth Maul , and Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter , until the novel takes place during the entirety of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Palpatine, who had also named Maul Darth behind Plagueis's back, also sees a potential ally in the former Jedi Count Dooku.
As the novel comes to a close during the events of The Phantom Menace , Sidious and Plagueis learn that a young boy named Anakin Skywalker , a former slave found by Qui-Gon Jinn on Tatooine , had been born of the Force. They discern that this is most likely due to Plagueis's experiment of creating life through the Force, which he had commenced about a decade earlier.
The novel climaxes where it began— as the Battle of Naboo occurs, Palpatine coerces Plagueis into sleep with the promise of making him co-chancellor of the Republic, just as Plagueis demanded decades earlier, now that Palpatine appears to be winning in the election to replace Finis Valorum as Chancellor.
With that, Sidious attacks Plagueis and, as he kills him, he explains that he was the one who had really been manipulating Plagueis the whole time, with such deals as the clone army as an example. In the end, Sidious ends Plagueis's life with the dark side of the Force, although his feeling of triumph is ruined as he feels uneasy for some reason.
He later attributes this to the supposed death of Darth Maul, though, as he initially suspected, it may very well have been Plagueis himself reaching out to him from beyond the Force. As Palpatine is officially made Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, he begins to commence his solo plans of taking over the galaxy with the upcoming Clone Wars, such as seeking Dooku as a placeholder Sith apprentice and ally in the war.
But the biggest part in Darth Sidious's plan is young Anakin Skywalker, now a Padawan to Obi-Wan Kenobi , who the Sith sees will be easily manipulated into becoming his true apprentice, and a harbinger of Palpatine's own power.
In an interview with Star Wars Insider magazine, Luceno said that he would like to write a future novel dealing with the search for immortality that both Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Plagueis embarked upon in their own separate ways. However, in a talk show interview in February 5 , ,  he indicated that the novel was currently on hold due to issues surrounding the revelation of Palpatine's backstory and Expanded Universe continuity concerns.
On March 27 , , Sue Rostoni revealed in her blog that the novel had been canceled, in an entry revealing an updated publishing schedule.
The announcements for the novel stated that Plagueis was a Muun. Leland Chee has confirmed that, since Plagueis's species did not originate in the novel, it is still considered his canonical species by Lucas Licensing. The novel was replaced with Darth Bane: Rule of Two ;  however, Luceno had said he still hoped he could convince the powers that be at LucasFilm to let him write the novel, and cited sales of Millennium Falcon could help influence that. On July 27 , , Sue Rostoni stated that the book was back on schedule, with a release date of February 28 , This announcement came following a sales database leak, which the fan site New Jedi Order Encyclopedia published.
Believing it to be a replacement for the canceled Imperial Commando 2 , fans asked for clarification. Rostoni confirmed that the book was going to be published in , but that it is not intended to replace Imperial Commando 2. The release date was later changed to December 27 , , and then again to January 10 , It was published in the Star Wars Insider on December 13 , Darth Plagueis was first set to be a first-person narrative.
Sidious would have found Plagueis's holocron shortly after he murdered his master and it would have retold Plagueis's recorded life story.
Ann Rice's The Vampire Chronicles served as inspiration for the storyline. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. The challenge was to create a 'history' of a kind without eclipsing the characters who are in effect making history. Fortunately, the Star Wars universe is so large that I was able to research the book almost in the same way I would have a more traditional historical novel.
As it progressed, I was forced to hew more closely to established lore, but even then it proved possible to shed light on what was going on in the wings behind the scenes.
Contents [ show ]. He could save others from death, but not himself. In the end, Qui-Gon succeeded by making contact with the Whills- the mysterious species of immortals George Lucas mentioned in an epigraph for the first Star Wars novel. As a result, the first version of the Plagueis novel was all over the place, way too long, and trying too hard to resolve every loose end. It's true. The novel has been cancelled.
We decided that this was not the right time to delve into Palpatine's backstory and Plagueis's beginnings. You'll still see Jim Luceno around, though, as he's an author we are not willing to lose.

Witness Palpatine and his shadowy master take the calculated steps to secure connection control of the Republic, instigate the Clone Wars, and have their revenge on the Jedi Order.
Only the promise of future redemption in the films prevents this dark tale from being a depressing vision of the triumph of evil. A good contribution to the evolution of the sith … Show more Show less. This book made me reward episode 1.
Something I never thought I'd do. It's only really about plagueis for half the book , the rest is about sidious. This was my second read through. Damn fine way to fill in Palpatine's missing links. The tale of Plagueis is also really the tale of Palpatine and his growth from intellectual idealist to Dark Lord of the Sith. Offering back story that furthers and sets up the plot to the events of episode 1. A bit more political than your typical SW novel, but none the less riveting … Show more Show less.
