Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 4, Episode 12 //
Slaves of the Republic Episode Guide
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
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 resourceful astromech droid, R2-D2 served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he formed an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol droid C-3PO.
The Zygerrians were a powerful people in the days of the Old Republic, before the Jedi Knights tore down their empire of slavery. When slavery was outlawed in Republic space, the Jedi Knights liberated countless beings from bondage, and the despicable trade the Zygerrians excelled in was pushed into the shadows of the underworld. Zygerrians are a humanoid species, with strong, angular features. They are very strong, able to easily dominate the weak when on equal footing. They are also quite cunning at ensuring they always maintain the upper hand in any situation.
