Forgive me if there is a thread somewhere about this in the past. Does anyone really know who Plagueis is, where he was from and any other details regarding him, other than the slight mention of him by Palps in ROTS?
i dont think his origins are known by anyone so far.He is mentioned in a few novels. Many ppl speculate he had a hand in creating anakin since he had no father, but i dont think thats true at all.Another theory is that Darth Plagueis the Wise created Palpatine as a "perfect" apprentice. But who knows
Palpatine claimed that Plagueis could stop death and taught his apprentice everything he knew...but Palpatine does not stop death in the movies, just in EU, and it's just his own death...but no one cares about that.
Darth Plagueis was the Dark Lord of the Sith before Palpatine, or so we all assume from the look of pure malicious glee on Palpy's face when he mentions that Plagueis' apprentice killed him. That's all we know of him.

Yes, I knew he is *supposed* to be a dark lord of the Sith, however, Palps is the only person who has mentioned him so it's possible that Palps made him up in the first place. Possible..... not likely but possible.
It was Palps who said Plaugies could stop people from dying, however. And I don't believe Papls at all because he later tells Anakan "together, perhaps we will find the way." meaning the way to stop someone from dying or stop death.
Plagueis, I'm sure, was a Dark Lord of the Sith; that look on Palps's face of pure glee upon mentioning his apprentice murdering him implies to me that he was Palpatine's master.
However, the whole 'taught his apprentice everything' bit...I don't believe that. Plagueis might have known how to do it, but Palpatine thought he probably learned everything there was to know, or he was not taught anything.
OK, having said that, I know the look on Palps face gave him away if you ask me. He was so proud of what he'd done to Plagueis, IF in fact he really did it. Maybe he just fantasized about it? OK, that's going too far.
We'll never know if the ability to keep someone from dying actually existed because Palps lied about the whole thing in the first place.
