CT-1701, nicknamed "Wildfire," was a clone trooper that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. After the Galactic Republic was replaced by the Galactic Empire, Wildfire did not swear allegiance to the New Order, but instead fought against the Empire alongside the Devaronian brawler, Tress Hacnua as a soldier of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

CT-1701 "Wildfire" was a clone trooper, one of millions cloned from the genetic template of the human bounty hunter Jango Fett. Like all clone troopers, Wildfire was created to be a soldier of the Galactic Republic, and therefore battled the droid forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems as part of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. He served with the 104th "Wolfpack" Battalion, a Republic Military unit led by CC-3636 Clone Commander "Wolffe."
After the war's end, and the clone army was absorbed into the ranks of the Imperial Army, Wildfire left his military service and joined forces with Tress Hacnua, a cybernetically-enhanced Devaronian female, in fighting against the Galactic Empire with the fledgling Alliance to Restore the Republic. When Wildfire learned that his former commanding officer, Wolffe, was alive and an ally of the Rebellion, he volunteered his team to retrieve valuable intelligence from the All Terrain Armored Transport commandeered by Wolffe, Rex, and Gregor on the planet Seelos.
Skills and abilitiesEdit

As a clone trooper, CT-1701 was bred to be a soldier. Being a veteran of the Clone Wars who aged at an accelerated rate, Wildfire had white hair and a beard by the time of his service with the Rebel Alliance. He was very skilled at providing a wide range of blaster fire, and what he lacked in accuracy, he made up for in overwhelming covering fire.
