"Charger!"
Fives to Charger as he fell[src]

"Charger" was the nickname of a clone trooper who served in the Grand Army of the Republic as part of the 501st Legion during the Clone Wars.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Charger was one of the many clones of Jango Fett grown on Kamino.[1]

Infiltrating the Citadel[edit | edit source]

Over 1 year into the Clone Wars,[2] Jedi Master Even Piell was captured by the Separatists and imprisoned in the Citadel on Lola Sayu. Charger was one of the clones assigned to a rescue team under the command of generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker that would infiltrate the prison and save master Piell.[3]

The team was frozen in carbonite and had reprogrammed battle droids fly a shuttle to fool the enemy life form scanners and get the frozen team on Lola Sayu. Once there, the team was unfrozen and the mission started.[3]

In order to get into the facility, the group had to free climb a wall covered with electromines to reach a small entrance platform. A droid patrol came to the platform and locked the door with a ray shield. Fortunately, Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano was able to crawl through a ventilation shaft and deactivate the shield. The team then climbed to the entrance platform. Charger was one of the last team members to reach it. Unfortunately, when fellow clone Fives tried to help him up, Charger stepped on a loose piece of stone that immediately broke off, causing Charger to lose his balance and fall straight into an electromine, killing him instantly. This alerted the entire facility and made it more difficult for the team to reach the prisoners.[3]

Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

As a clone of Jango Fett Charger stood at 1.83 meters.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Charger utilized white Phase I clone trooper armor, a standard DC-15A blaster carbine, and a Backpack.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the episode, Charger was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who voices all clone troopers through the series.

As the episode "The Citadel" takes place between the two episodes according to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), Charger's death must take place in that year.
