Episode: "The Lost One"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
The Lost Missions (Season Six), Episode 10
Original Air Date: March 1, 2014
The Jedi renew an investigation of the disappearance of Sifo-Dyas, a Jedi Master believed dead ten years before. Anakin and Obi-Wan are sent to Oba Diah where Sifo-Dyas's ship and lightsaber have been found. As it turns out, he wasn't just any old Jedi. He's the one who ordered the creation of the clone army, against the wishes of the Jedi High Council. It's an interesting twist on the clones story and the Jedi's moral position in regards to it. They didn't approve of the program at first but see it as a good idea in hindsight, having since benefited from it considerably. Obi-Wan readily admits he believes they'd been wrong at the time.
No need to get too twisted up over it, though. Turns out, it was all Dooku's fault.
In The Clone Wars, Valorum is voiced by Ian Ruskin. Ruskin has appeared in such films as Eragon and A Good Year and in such television shows as The X Files and Murder She Wrote. Beyond his voice acting career, Ruskin has considerable stage credentials as both actor and writer.
