    This question has been bugging me ever since I have seen the movie and I need an answer. I can't remember the name of the Jedi council member who secretly ordered the republican army to be built like 10 years before Obi-Wan went to the planet and found out about the army. So who is the guy?

    I think it's Palpatine (I know that's not the name you want, though). I mean, he is a Sith Lord, so he must've been a Jedi before. He ordered the Republican Army to be built when the Jedi thought he was dead. He came back and disguised himself and used his force powers to hide his mind from Jedi.

    I dunno, it kinda makes sense.

    I believe his name was Sypho Dias. And it can't be Palpatine because Joda and Mace knows who Sypho Dias is and said he died.

    "supposedly" died.

    It could be that he disguised himself as Palpatine and uses the dark side to shroud the Force's ability to detect who he really is

    Palpatine is a jedi, after all

    No way Palpatine could be a Jedi, wouldn't you think the Jedi Master, Yoda would know that? Palpatine is a Sith Lord. And how can Sypho Dyas disguise himself as Palpatine? Palpatine's appearance does not change, not even in Return of the Jedi when he is the old Emperor.

    I'm guessing it was count dooku as he was leaving the jedi order, kinda setting it in motion for the events of the clone war :dunno:

    Yeah it was Dooku. And Yoda cant tell that palpatine is a Sith because the only weakness of a jedi is that fact that the dark side can cloud their minds.

    Palpatine can and is a Jedi. How else can he be a Sith lord? Makes sense that one of the most powerful Jedis in the Star Wars galaxy was taught by the Jedi Council... the dark side got to him, he faked his death, and became Palpatine with a whole ulterior motive.

    The name Sypho Dias rings a bell, I think thats who i was looking for. Sypho Dias may have faked his death tho and became dooku or something, but I doubt it.
