- "And Order Sixty-Six…we followed it—I followed it—as if under some kind of spell…as if I had no will of my own. No memories of the battles we had fought together."
- ―CC-10/994, to Captain Styles
CC-10/994, who also went by the nickname "Grey," was a Clone Commander who served in the Galactic Republic's Grand Army under Jedi General Depa Billaba. He was among the the majority of clone troopers who turned on their Jedi Generals during the execution of Order 66, killing Master Billaba. He continued to pursue Billaba's Padawan, Caleb Dume, eventually catching up to him on Lahn. Grey began to see the truth, realizing that something had taken their free will during Order 66, and sacrificed himself to save Dume from the clone forces trying to kill him.

Clone Wars[edit | edit source]
- "…the four of us are the only troopers remaining from your last command."
"Yes, well. It could hardly be otherwise."
- ―CC-10/994 and Depa Billaba
CC-10/994, nicknamed "Grey," was a clone of Jango Fett, and was trained on Kamino to serve the Grand Army of the Republic. He possessed the rank of Clone Commander when he led a battalion of clone troopers under Jedi General Depa Billaba. In a battle on Haruun Kal, Billaba and her battalion took severe casualties, but Commander Grey, along with Clone Captain Styles and several other clones, survived, forming a new battalion.
Recon on Kardoa[edit | edit source]
Their new battalion had their first mission on Kardoa, along with Billaba's new Padawan, Caleb Dume. The battalion's mission was to check for a Separatist presence on the planet. While they searched the canyon of Kardoa, an explosion went off, killing many clones. A force of B1-series battle droids began to attack, and Billaba's battalion fought back. Grey survived the following battle, and with the help of the rest of the clones and Billaba, the Separatists retreated from Kardoa.
Third Battle of Mygeeto[edit | edit source]
- "This is C.C. dash ten slash nine-nine-four…requesting immediate reinforcements to mesa camp six."
After the successful end to their mission on Kardoa, the battalion was assigned to Mygeeto, where they were to reinforce Republic forces at the Third Battle of Mygeeto. Commander Grey deployed most of his battalion before Billaba and Dume arrived, and then went off to fight himself. When Billaba, Dume, Styles and Stance were trapped on a platform by battle droids, Grey turned back to rescue them, but arrived to find that they had already been assisted by Fenn Rau and Skull Squadron. They returned to their base camp, while most of their battalion remained out in the field. The camp was attacked by General Grievous, Colonel Coburn Sear and a number of battle droids, who killed Stance. Grey called for reinforcements as he and Styles attempted to fight back against the droids. They encountered Dume, who had defeated Colonel Sear, and then provided assistance to Billaba, who was dueling Grievous. They forced Grievous to escape, and later held a funeral for Stance. Not long after the end of their mission, they were given another assignment on the planet Kaller.
Final mission[edit | edit source]
- "This is C.C. dash 10 slash 994."
"Commander Grey, the time has come…execute Order 66."
- ―CC-10/994 receives orders from Palpatine
The battalion arrived on Kaller, engaging in a battle against Separatist forces. General Kleeve, the leader of the forces on Kaller, retreated, surrendering Kaller to the Republic. After the battle, Grey and Styles accompanied the two Jedi to see the Kalleran Gamut Key. Billaba informed Key that the Separatists would no longer trouble them, but Janus Kasmir, who was nearby, claimed that he saw no difference between Separatist and Republic occupation. Grey asked Kasmir whether he would prefer General Kleeve, while Dume and Styles became angry at the Kalleran, but Billaba remained calm, informing Key that the Republic forces would spend the night in fields nearby. While camping later that night, the two clones and the two Jedi sat together and discussed why Billaba had not said anything to Kasmir. Grey and Styles strongly disagreed when Billaba said she did not agree with Jedi taking up the rank of Jedi General, but were amused when they learned Dume had been infamous for asking too many questions during his time at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. During the discussion, Grey was contacted by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who gave him the order to execute Order 66, the execution of the Jedi.
Unknown to the clones, Billaba, who had been meditating, received a Force vision of the deaths of her fellow Jedi, warning Dume of the danger. By the time the clones started aiming, Billaba was already on her feet, her lightsaber ignited. Billaba and Dume defended themselves, killing many of the clones who had previously fought beside them. Grey ordered the others to surround them, and Billaba quickly realized that they could not win against a entire battalion that was about to cut off all escape routes. She once again told Dume to run, and he did as he was told. Grey ordered concentrated fire on Dume, but he deflected the shots, so Grey instead ordered Styles to cut him off and hunt him down. Billaba shouted to Styles and turned toward him, intending to use the Force on him, but this left her open to Grey, who shot her in the back. Billaba collapsed forward onto the ground, while Grey and two other clones repeatedly fired on her, killing the general who they had once served.
After Order 66[edit | edit source]
- "Grey! What are you—"
"Making it right."
- ―Styles and CC-10/994
In the following days, Grey and Styles continued to search for Dume in Plateau City, but lost his trail when he radically changed his appearance and started working alongside Janus Kasmir. After a job gone wrong which resulted in the pair getting caught, Kasmir immediately sold out the fact that Dume was secretly the escaped Jedi Padawan, and seemingly traded him to Gamut Key's security in exchange for his escape. Grey and Styles were able to confirm for Key that the boy was, in fact, the Padawan they had been hunting for, and they ordered the Kallerans to hold him in a cell until they could leave the Imperial Garrison at Plateau City to take him in and execute him for treason. Shortly after their message, however, Kasmir, who had a change of heart, broke Dume out of his cell using an IG-RM droid, escaping Kaller.
Grey and Styles maintained a close pursuit, always remaining just one step behind Dume and his new friend. They finally caught up to the pair when they landed on Lahn, where they intended to trade stolen spice for a second ship. As Dume was negotiating with their buyer, the former Separatist general Kleeve, Grey ambushed Kasmir and held him at gunpoint, demanding to know where the Padawan had gone. While Kasmir claimed that he had ditched him as soon as they left Kaller, Grey remained skeptical. Dume overheard the exchange, and fled to allow Kasmir's statement to seem truthful. Grey arrested Kasmir anyway, and began a search across Lahn for Dume's whereabouts. Captain Styles managed to ambush Dume, who had gone with Kleeve to the Farbrooke's Hope, the ship Kasmir planned to acquire, and knocked Dume unconscious.
Styles reported back to Grey, informing him of Dume's capture. While transporting Caleb back to Kaller aboard their Gozanti-class cruiser, Grey and Styles were finally faced with the task of putting an end to their former friend. Dume pleaded for his life, reminding the clones how much they used to look up to Master Billaba and suggesting to them that it was Palpatine, not the Jedi, who had betrayed the Republic when he created the Empire. While he was unable to convince the clones not to kill him, he did manage to buy enough time for Kasmir and Kleeve to catch up to the Imperial freighter in an attempt to rescue him. Dume Force pushed the clones and remotely activated the airlock, escaping into the vacuum outside. After managing to return to the bridge of the freighter, Grey began to have doubts about following Order 66. Despite having sufficient firepower to destroy both the Kasmiri and Farbrooke's Hope, Grey could not help but wonder why the clones had so blindly obeyed Order 66. He brought his concerns up with Styles, who disagreed, seeing the Jedi only as traitors to the Empire. When his protestations went unanswered, Grey decided to shoot the ship's controls with his blaster rifle, crippling the freighter and allowing Kasmir and Kleeve to destroy it with both Grey and Styles on board.
