- "Okay clankers, suck laser!"
- ―Jek, to battle droids on Rugosa
Jek was one of the three clone troopers, alongside Clone Lieutenant Thire and Rys, who were dispatched to Rugosa as part of the escort accompanying Grand Master Yoda to secure an alliance between the Galactic Republic and King Katuunko of Toydaria. The group was ambushed by Separatist forces led by Asajj Ventress and, consequently, had to fight their way through her battle droid forces to reach the meeting point.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Jek. Concerned about weapons you are. Weapons do not win battles. Your mind, powerful it is! Mmm? Outthink the droids you can."
- ―Yoda, to Jek during their mission, to Rugosa
According to Master Yoda, Jek had an obsession with weapons, always thinking the strength of his team depended on having superior firepower. This mentality was reflected on his weapon of choice, the rotary blaster cannon. In the aftermath of their mission on Rugosa, Jek painted battle droid heads on his weapon.
