"I'm a soldier, like you. This is what I was bred for."

99 was a human male clone of Jango Fett bred to be a clone trooper for the Grand Army of the Republic. He was malformed in the cloning process, however, and suffered numerous genetic and physical defects. As a result, he was deemed unfit for service in the army, and instead provided janitorial and maintenance work on his home planet of Kamino. During his time on Kamino, he grew attached to Clone cadets as they trained to become troopers, viewing them all as brothers and individuals, rather than clone numbers. He befriended Domino Squad during their time training, and stopped Hevy, a member of Domino Squad, from abandoning them. He inspired Hevy and urged him to see himself as a team with his squad instead of as alone. This led to the squad passing, and Hevy gave 99 his medal in both thanks and as a reason to come back to visit him on Kamino.[3]

Later in the war when Echo and Fives, former members of Domino Squad, returned to Kamino he helped them and other clones fight against the Separatist invasion of Kamino, a battle in which 99 lost his life while trying to get more ammunition for the clones. Shortly thereafter, he was mourned in death by the clones he considered brothers, and it was stated he had been a true soldier and one of them.[2]

Clone Force 99, a clone commando squad composed of clones who also had genetic mutations, was named in his honor.[4]


Maintenance CloneEdit

99 suffered from genetic and physical defects due to errors when he was being cloned. As a result, as other clones trained on Kamino and left to serve the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars, 99 stayed on his home planet and served as maintenance.

Working with Domino SquadEdit

During 99's service, he saw many clone cadets graduate and become clone troopers. In 22 BBY, he witnessed bounty hunter Bric, who had been hired to assist in clone cadet training, belittle a Domino Squad, a group of struggling clone cadets. 99 took it upon himself to help Domino Squad out, offering advice specifically to the brash CT-782. Eventually, he formed a bond with the squad and upon their graduation, CT-782, who he had nicknamed "Hevy," gave 99 his graduation medal, telling him he would get it back from him later.[3]

Defending KaminoEdit

When many clones were called back to their homeworld to defend Kamino from Separatist invasion, 99's role changed from maintenance to assisting in defense preparations. He helped distribute weapons to the clones that dug in around Tipoca City. When the Separatist forces led by General Grievous arrived, 99 witnessed the death of ARC Trooper "Havoc." Later, he would meet Domino Squad members "Fives" and "Echo" helping a group of lost clone cadets. 99 led the group to the armory and set up an ambush in the sleeping quarters. As Fives and Echo used the last of their EMP grenades, 99 ran to get more but was brought down by enemy fire. 99 died in his comrades arms, reassuring them that he was willing to die as a soldier, at it was what he was bred for.[2]
