The Clone Wars Rewatch
Databank: The Clone Wars
Clone soldiers in the Grand Army of the Republic were engineered with a special inhibitor chip to help ensure they could be controlled. Although there were reports of some defective chips causing clones to act erratically during the Clone War, the device was vital to the execution of Order 66, which brought about the end of the Jedi Order. Only a handful of clone troopers, including the members of Clone Force 99, seemed to be unaffected.
The eldest of two, Shaeeah Lawquane knows few playmates on the backwater world of Saleucami, but has a keen understanding of the dangers that lurk beyond the relative safety of the family farm. Aside from her brother, Jek, and their parents, the only family she knows are her many uncles who bear a striking resemblance to her father.
A Twi'lek refugee, Suu Lawquane makes a life on Saleucami with her husband, the former clone Cut, and their children, Jek and Shaeeah. Although preferring to remain removed from the conflict, eking out a humble existence on their farm, Suu is trained for combat and welcoming of certain clone soldiers who wander to Saleucami having lost their way.
After the Clone War ends, the new Empire reappropriates Kamino training facilities to challenge the value of continuing to employ clone soldiers. In the training facility where many rookies proved their worth as cadets for the Republic, Admiral Tarkin uses devious tactics and live rounds to test the clones who remain, including assessing whether or not the unique soldiers in Clone Force 99 can learn to adhere to Imperial protocol.
The proud warriors of Mandalore have many ways of dealing with off-world intruders. For a time, they dealt with Force-wielding enemies in particular through powerful technology, including encasing their foes in a vault-like prison that could be hauled from place to place much like a slab of carbonite.
Every pilot needs a trusty droid, and R7-A7 proved again and again to be Ahsoka Tano's faithful friend. In her most desperate hour, as Order 66 unfolded and the clones turned their blasters on her, R7-A7 patched into the central computer to help Ahsoka piece together the meaning of Rex's mutterings. After the war, the droid serves as the astromech and co-pilot aboard Trace and Rafa Martez's ship, the Silver Angel.
Led by Captain Rex, the 501st Legion is a tight-knit squadron of clone troopers known for strength of character and unwavering loyalty. Upon being reunited with Ahsoka Tano, the men of the 501st show their allegiance to their former commander by altering their clone armor in an homage for her Togruta markings.
The Gauntlet starfighter is a sleek combat ship that also serves as a troop transport. It has a sleek primary hull flanked by large pivoting wings that contain the craft's drives. The wings are on a collared mount, which can rotate independently from the hull, offering the ship remarkable maneuverability for a fighter of its size. In addition, the Gauntlet packs a punch, carrying two forward laser cannons and a pair of rearward-facing cannons that flank its boarding tube.
