Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 2, Episode 10 //
The Deserter Episode Guide
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 disillusioned clone trooper who saw too many of his fellow brothers die in combat, Cut Lawquane left the service. The deserter attempted to carve a new life for himself as a simple farmer on Saleucami. He wants only to live in peace with his new family, his wife Suu and his children, Jek and Shaeeah. He finds, however, that nowhere is safe from the Clone Wars.
An enormous improvement over the standard battle droid, commando droids are elite warriors too expensive to produce in huge numbers. These stealthy yet powerful warriors are tougher and faster than their clanker cousins. Complex engineering gives them incredible agility, while advanced processors let them think fast on their nimble feet.
General Grievous was a brilliant Separatist military strategist and a feared Jedi hunter, known for his ruthlessness and hacking cough. His body itself was a weapon, allowing him lightning quick strikes and devastating blows. But he was also quick to run from a fight, a tactic that worked until one final meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
A world of mixed terrain, from dank, swampy environments marked with strange bulbous plant-life, to arid deserts, Saleucami is an Outer Rim planet that remained untouched by the Clone Wars through most of the fighting. The settlers on Saleucami wished to avoid the destruction of warfare, and live out a simple existence at peace, only doing battle with the elements. Unfortunately, combat did come to Saleucami, and it was a major battle site during the Outer Rim Sieges of the Clone Wars.
