- "I am an accomplished battlefield strategist. I analyze the enemy terrain and plot a course to victory."
"In other words, you read maps."
- ―Colonel Gascon and WAC-47
During the Clone Wars, Gascon was assigned command of D-Squad, a group of droids which included astromech droids R2-D2, QT-KT, U9-C4, and M5-BZ as well as WAC-47, a DUM-series pit droid. At first, Gascon did not think much of his charges, considering them little more than electronic tools. In return, the droids did not think much of him, either, dismissing him as a little more than a "map-reader"; WAC-47 repeatedly addressed him by the incorrect rank of "corporal." As their mission progressed, however, they came to form a mutual respect for each other. After his mission with D-Squad, Gascon achieved his aspiration of obtaining the rank of Brigadier General.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Gascon's design originated from concept artwork for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, a design originally conceived for Jar Jar Binks. He was voiced by Stephen Stanton, who also voiced Moralo Eval. Like Gascon, Eval's story arc was written by Brent Friedman.
