Star Wars: The Clones Wars – Season 4, Episode 10 //
Carnage of Krell
The clone troopers of the 501st Legion are a tight-knit bunch, loyal to the end to their Jedi General, Anakin Skywalker. Jesse was a hard-fighting patriot who proudly wore the cog-shaped symbol of the Galactic Republic on his helmet, and as a large tattoo that covered his face.
Also known as CT-27-5555, Fives trained with Domino Squad on Kamino before being shipped out to the Rishi Moon listening outpost. He survived the Separatist attack on the station there, and was transferred to the 501st Legion alongside his squadmate and fellow survivor, Echo. Fives and Echo were promoted to ARC trooper status after the defense of Kamino from Separatist invaders. He and Echo were later assigned with the difficult mission of freeing Republic prisoners from the daunting Citadel prison installation on Lola Sayu. He and Echo were later part of a mission to free Republic prisoners from the Separatist prison called the Citadel. Echo fell in battle, leaving Fives as Domino Squad’s sole survivor. Fives accompanied the clone trooper Tup to Kamino for medical testing, where he discovered a terrifying secret about the clones’ origins and ultimate purpose.
This Besalisk Jedi is all about getting results and, indeed, his battlefield record lists many key victories in the Clone Wars. He has an unshakable confidence in his methods, and he will brook no insubordination among his charges. In personal combat, he can be ferocious -- his giant arms carry two double-ended lightsabers, making him extremely dangerous in close quarters. Pong Krell's reputation as a successful general is well known but so is the fact that the casualty rates of the clone troopers under his command are the highest.
Clone Captain Rex served the Republic during the Clone Wars, often taking orders from Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. He viewed military service as an honor, and he always completed his mission. Fond of using two blaster pistols at the same time, Rex customized his armor with distinctive blue markings. His loyalty to the Republic and his Jedi Generals was absolute, but even this dedicated veteran soldier found himself plagued by doubts as the Clone Wars claimed more lives and brought ruin to more worlds.
A rookie clone trooper in the 501st Legion, Tup acclimated well within the ranks of seasoned veterans. Unlike some of the newer clones, like Dogma, who seemed wound a little too tight, Tup was far more willing to learn from his brothers' experiences. Tup could be distinguished by the teardrop shaped tattoo on his face, and the matching markings on his helmet. He served during the grueling campaign to retake the shadowy planet Umbara, under the command of the fierce General Pong Krell.
Fervently loyal to the Galactic Republic, trooper Dogma was one of the newer generation of clone troopers fighting on the frontlines of the Clone Wars. Unlike seasoned veterans like Clone Captain Rex and ARC Trooper Fives, Dogma was more rigid in his thinking, easily -- and eagerly -- submitting to appropriate authority. When clones troopers of the 501st began grousing about General Krell's obstinate and dangerous command style, Dogma jumped to defend their commander. Dogma supported the general -- and passionately believed in their duty to carry out his orders.
