- "Get yourselves to the escape pods. I will deal with Grievous here."
"But sir, they're commando droids!"
"That does not matter, Captain. Now go!"
- ―Eeth Koth orders Lock to evacuate
"Lock" was the nickname of a clone trooper captain who served aboard the Venator-class Star Destroyer Steadfast, under Jedi General Eeth Koth during the Clone Wars. When the Steadfast was attacked by General Grievous and his contingent of Separatist forces in 21 BBY, Lock led his fellow clone troopers in an effort to repel the enemy. Faced with overwhelming odds at the ship's airlocks, Koth ordered Lock and his troops to evacuate the vessel. Not long after that order, Koth was bested by Grievous and his forces when they breached the cruiser's bridge.
- "Status report."
"There's too many of them!"
- ―Koth demands a status report from Lock.
The clone trooper who adopted the nickname Lock was born a human male clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, on the remote planet Kamino. Raised to serve the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, Lock acquired the rank of Clone Captain. In the year 21 BBY, Lock was stationed aboard the Venator-class Star Destroyer Steadfast, under the command of Jedi General and council-member Eeth Koth.
Whilst the Steadfast was in the Saleucami system, a Separatist fleet attacked the ship. Led by Supreme Commander General Grievous aboard his Recusant-class Commerce Guild destroyer, Separatist forces boarded the ship using cofferdams. The ensuing battle saw Lock and his clone troopers forced to defend the ship's airlocks against oncoming B2 super battle droids. Koth contacted Lock and requested an urgent report on the situation, to which the captain replied that the number of droids was too large to counter. Koth proceeded to order Lock and his troops to evacuate the vessel in escape pods, exclaiming that he would handle Grievous on the bridge. Lock protested, stressing that the droid general's forces included BX-series droid commandos, but Koth downplayed their importance and again ordered him to evacuate. Moments later, Koth and his troops were greeted by Grievous and a squad of commando droids on the bridge. The Jedi engaged Grievous in a desperate lightsaber duel, but Grievous ordered his droid escort to assist and Koth was ultimately defeated and captured.
Personality and traitsEdit
Lock was a human male clone of Jango Fett, who stood at 1.83 meters tall. He had brown eyes and tan skin. During the attack on the Steadfast, Lock recognized that he and his troops were greatly outnumbered by their enemy. Lock also attempted to protest against the orders of his Jedi General and showed concern for Koth's life when the Jedi announced that he would face Grievous aboard the ship's bridge.
Lock wore customized Phase I clone trooper armor that featured green and yellow markings, similar in appearance to the armor worn by his subordinates. Additionally, his helmet sported a visor and an antenna was attached to his left shoulder plate. During the attack on the Steadfast, Lock wielded a DC-15A blaster carbine, a standard-issue weapon for clone troopers of the Galactic Republic.
