Did you know......Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas & General Grievous - The Old Republic


If you've watched the movies you've heard of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas and you know part of the impact on the Attack of the Clones and essentially The Clone Wars. What you may not know is why his impact with General Grievous and how the Sith Lords twisted his precognition of a great war 10 years later to their advantage.




Sifo-Dyas was a Jedi Master who had the gift of precognition and who was also good friends with the Jedi Count Dooku. Sifo-Dyas foretold the Republic would face a great war and secretly ordered the clone army. Count Dooku was no longer of allegiance to the Jedi and an apprentice of Darth Sidious, and was foretold about Sifo-Dyas and his order of the clones. Dooku would later kill Sifo-Dyas casting his allegiance to the Sith. We all know the Clones were used for the Republic for the Clone Wars and were later the Destruction of the Jedi. But......That's not all for Sifo-Dyas.



Dooku kept Sifo-Dyas' body frozen for many years and was put to use to construct the abomination of half sentient and half cyborg creator that is......General Grievous. A blood transfusion was needed to keep what was known original as Kaleesh General Qymaen jai Sheelal alive and turned into General Grievous. An early experiment similar to the construction of DarthVader.



Grievous was in a shuttle that was sabotaged and exploded almost killing Sheelal. Dooku and Sidious commissioned the transformation, that took place on Geonosis, from the Kaleesh General to the wicked General Grievous.




Although I have not found it questioned by any one, I have always wondered, General Grievous states that he has been trained in Jedi Lightsaber combat but knows nothing of the force, baring no force connection. But if it was Sifo-Dyas' blood, and midiclorians are found in the blood, should Grievous had a force connection???



This can be found in the Expanded Universe Comic - The Eyes of Revolution - a short 14 page comic but very important to Star Wars History.

  2. Is the use of Sifo Dyas' body to build Grievous still canon? I can't see to find this story anywhere in Wookipedia anymore, but I remember it being there before. Always thought it was a unique connection between the too, and adds more to the life (and death) of Sifo Dyas who we never actually see on screen. Nice work
