The Non-Canon Expert explains the Legends lore behind Dooku's personal views and lightsaber dueling philosophy that would strongly suggest why he was so horrified when both of his hands were cut of by Anakin in Revenge of the Sith. There was a truth that would horrify Dooku even before he learned the reality that he would soon meet his end.
This is a Legends story for Dooku from the excellent Revenge of the Sith novelization by Matthew Stover. I hope that you all enjoy it!
