Thame was taken in front of the Jedi Council and removed from being Tyrone's master as his apprenticeship was continued by esteemed Jedi Master Yoda.

Tyrone Dooku was most renowned for his expertize in reviatalizing the near-extinct form of Makashi. He became the master of Makashi, with only Master Yoda and Anakin Skywalker able to beat him, and he was only equal to Master Windu and Jedi Master Nioman Dokoora. Tyrone had impecable manners and was often known to take customs and regulations to their extremes. Tyrone was very beloved by the Council in his youth, so much that he had an open relationship with Masters that seemed critical of nearly everyone. It would be years later that his trouble with the Jedi Council began, when they made choices that came in contrast with his own morality. After the mission to Danthamir, Tyrone began to notice the darkness within the Force. Tyrone unlike the Jedi Council was more open to ideas of the return of the Sith. Tyrone and Thame would remain friends for the entirety of Thame's life. Tyrone's true friends would be his padawan Qui-Gon and fellow Jedi Sifo-Dyas.
