The leader of the 501st Legion’s Torrent Company, CT-7567 – better known as Rex – was an exemplary clone trooper, brave under fire and dedicated to the men serving under him. As a no-nonsense, by-the-book trooper, Rex had to adjust to the maverick Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his headstrong Padawan Ahsoka Tano. Despite his lifelong training and discipline, Rex came to admire and sometimes emulate Anakin’s genius for improvisation and his willingness to bend the rules.

Over many campaigns, Rex saw too many clone troopers die fighting the Separatists’ seemingly limitless battle droids. Some of those deaths were unavoidable, but other troopers died because commanders such as the Jedi General Pong Krell saw clones as expendable, little more than living droids bred to serve and die.

Rex believed in the Republic, and he had been trained to believe that a soldier’s highest calling was doing his duty despite long odds and orders he might not understand. But as the war ground up more and more of his men, Rex began to wonder what the point of the conflict was, and what price the clones would ultimately pay.
