- "Don't worry about him. Let him go!"
- ―CT-0000/1010, allowing Bail Organa to escape
CT-0000/1010, nicknamed "Fox," was a clone trooper who fought in the Clone Wars as a soldier in the Grand Army of the Republic. Bred from the genetic template of the human bounty hunter Jango Fett, he served as a Clone Sergeant in the 501st Legion by the time of Order 66—the event that triggered the systematic purge of the Jedi Order in 19 BBY. As a result, Fox was with his legion as they marched on the Coruscant Jedi Temple under the command of the newly-anointed Sith Lord Darth Vader.
As the fighting continued between the clones and their former allies, Fox's troops guarded one of the Temple's starfighter hangars both to prevent outsiders from entering and Jedi from escaping. After Fox's commanding officer, Clone Commander CC-1119 "Appo" ordered Senator Bail Organa to leave the premises, the troopers were ambushed by Padawan Zett Jukassa, who succeeded in killing several troopers and wounding Appo during his escape attempt. However, the young Jedi was soon overwhelmed and fatally shot by Fox's men. Although Organa fled the scene, horrified by what he had witnessed, the sergeant ordered the clones to not fire on the senator's speeder.
A clone on Coruscant
- "There's been a rebellion, sir. Don't worry, the situation is under control."
- ―CC-1119, to Bail Organa
CT-0000/1010 was the designation of a clone of the human male bounty hunter Jango Fett, who was created on the planet Kamino in order to serve as a clone trooper in the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic. He served throughout the entirety of the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems as part of the 501st Legion, spending most of the war stationed on Coruscant, the capital of the Republic.
By the year 19 BBY, CT-0000/1010 had earned the rank of Clone Sergeant and was known by the nickname "Fox." In the same year, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine issued Order 66 to all clone forces, tasking them with killing all members of the Jedi Order. The sergeant was among the 501st forces led by the Sith Lord Darth Vader in the siege of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
Sparing the senator
- "I'm sorry, sir. It's time for you to leave."
- ―CC-1119, to Bail Organa
Fox's unit was assigned the duty of guarding the entrances and exits to the temple, and he was present with several other troopers as well as Clone Commander CC-1119 "Appo" on one of the temple's landing pads when Senator Bail Organa arrived in a landspeeder to investigate what was going on. Appo claimed the Jedi had betrayed the Republic and then swiftly ordered Organa to leave, but as the senator did so the Jedi Padawan Zett Jukassa attacked Appo and his men.
As the commander and those around him were cut down, the remaining clones opened fire on the young Jedi and a bolt from Fox's blaster dealt the killing blow. Organa quickly fled the scene in his speeder as the clones prepared to fire on him too, but as Appo was wounded, the sergeant ordered his men to stand down.
Personality and traits
CT-0000/1010 was a loyal soldier throughout the entirety of the Clone Wars, but by the war's end he had grown tired of the fighting. Having to kill Jukassa during Order 66 was the final straw, causing him to lose all desire for battle and order his men to allow Organa to flee. As a clone of Jango Fett, the sergeant had tan skin, black hair and brown eyes.
Behind the scenes
CT-0000/1010 first appeared in the film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, released on May 19, 2005. Like all clones in the film he was voiced by Temuera Morrison and generated using CGI.
