Delta Squad, with its members being known as the Deltas, was a military special forces squad of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, a galactic civil war between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The squad consisted of four clone commandosClone Sergeant RC-1138, second-in-command RC-1140, RC-1262, and RC-1207— who, on one occasion retrieved the bodies of Jedi Master Halsey and Padawan Knox following the massacre on Devaron and participated in other dangerous missions during the war.

History[]

"There were no survivors on Devaron. Everyone was killed, including Master Halsey and his Padawan."
―Boss, reporting on the events on Devaron[src]

During the Clone Wars, Delta Squad consisted of a team of four clone commandos[3]—Unit leader Clone Sergeant RC-1138 "Boss," second-in-command RC-1140 "Fixer," RC-1207 "Sev," and RC-1262 "Scorch"[2]—who served in the Grand Army of the Republic.[3] At one point, Delta Squad was deployed from a LAAT/i gunship into a battle zone in order to take control of territory.[4] In the aftermath of the massacre on the planet Devaron, Delta Squad recovered the bodies of Jedi General Halsey and his Padawan, Knox and brought them back to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant,[3] the capital world of the Galactic Republic.[5]

Boss reported directly to several members of the Jedi High CouncilObi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, and Saesee Tiin—and informed them that the entire military force on Devaron had perished along with Halsey and his apprentice, leading the Council to suspect the emergence of a new threat to the Jedi Order. Their suspicion was confirmed upon recovering security footage of the battle; a hologram of Halsey's death revealed his killer to be a Nightbrother of Dathomir,[3] whom the Jedi would come to know as Savage Opress.[6]

Following the end of the Clone Wars and the Republic's transformation into the Galactic Empire, Scorch was one of many clone commandos who were tasked with training the new soldiers of the Imperial Army.[7] In time, these new troopsstormtroopers—replaced the clone troopers.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

Delta Squad first appeared in the 2005 Star Wars Legends video game Star Wars: Republic Commando. During development of "Witches of the Mist," a season-three episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, supervising director Dave Filoni requested that the creative team incorporate Delta Squad into the plot.[1] All four commandos' names (but not their identification numbers) were brought into canon in the episode guide for "Witches of the Mist."[9][1]

Within Republic Commando, the game's final mission concerns a mission to Kashyyyk, during which Delta Squad rescues the Wookiee Chieftain Tarfful.[10] Within canon, there is a documented rescue of Chieftain Tarfful from Trandoshans,[11] with Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition establishing that a group of clone commandos carried out the rescue.[12] Although this matches the depiction of the Legends rescue, no canon source has confirmed if the commando unit dispatched in canon was Delta Squad.
