- "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 R2-D2 and WAC-47. 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.
