"I would not discount Omega's insight. A state of heightened awareness is not unusual for an enhanced clone such as herself."
―Tech, in regards to Omega[src]

Omega was an enhanced human female clone created from the genetic template of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett who lived in the years following the Clone Wars. Originally created as an pure genetic replication of Fett, she was a medical assistant to Nala Se and spent her days working in Tipoca City on the clone homeworld of Kamino. When the war ended, she took an interest in Clone Force 99, who had returned from a battle on Kaller. Later, when Wilhuff Tarkin arrived on Kamino to assess the clone troopers, she joined Clone Force 99 and escaped Kamino.

Omega accompanied Clone Force 99 on their subsequent visit to Cut Lawquane's farmstead on Saleucami, which was her first time away from Kamino. There, she made friends with the Lawquane children, Shaeeah and Jek, and helped secure the family's escape by delivering forged chain codes to them so they could board a transport. She was given an opportunity to go along with them on the transport, but decided to remain with Clone Force 99.

After Omega drew the attention of the bounty hunter Fennec Shand during the Bad Batch's supply run on the moon Pantora, the group made their way to an informant named Cid, whom Echo knew that the Jedi trusted during the war. Omega was given a comlink and the group pulled off a job on Ord Mantell in exchange for information on Shand as well as credits. The Bad Batch would begin working for Cid, with the group pulling a job on Corellia shortly after their first successful work.

Omega would soon meet Captain Rex, a former soldier in the Grand Army of the Republic and associate of the Bad Batch. When Rex realized that the group still had their inhibitor chips, he implored them to get them removed. Omega and the others would join him on Bracca and Omega would watch her companions undergo a procedure inside a downed Venator-class Star Destroyer to get the chips removed. After Rex departed, the group would soon be discovered by the Empire. After being pursued by Crosshair and his forces, Omega was eventually kidnapped by a third party: the bounty hunter Cad Bane. She would eventually escape Bane when he landed at a facility on Bora Vio to collect his payment, and after evading Bane and the recently arrived Shand, she was rescued by the other members of the Bad Batch.

Biography

Rise of the Empire

"I like you. You don't fit in around here either."
―Omega, to the Bad Batch[src]

Omega meets Clone Force 99

Omega was an enhanced clone created from the genetic template of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett. She was one of only two known clones that was a pure genetic copy of the original Fett template, the other being Boba Fett.[3] Omega who worked as a medical assistant to the Kaminoan Nala Se. Although she stayed on[1] the extragalactic planet Kamino in the star system of the same name,[4] she knew of each member of Clone Force 99, later meeting them on the planet after they returned from the Conquest of Kaller. During the Proclamation of the New Order, Omega stood by Nala Se's side and briefly made eye contact with the Bad Batch's leader, Hunter, only to vanish once he was distracted. Following the assembly, Omega approached the Bad Batch and introduced herself and addressed each member of the squad by name. When asked what she was doing on Kamino, Nala Se appeared and explained Omega's position as her medical assistant with a tendency to wander, before leading her away.[1]

Omega sitting with the Bad Batch

Determined to grow closer to the Bad Batch, Omega sat with them in the mess hall, which Tech noted was something that had never happened before. Unaware of her true nature as a clone, Hunter asked where her parents were. Omega barely had time to respond when another clone trooper made a passing remark about the "Sad Batch." Taking offense, Omega threw food at the clone and demanded he apologize. Hunter, the group's leader, tried to de-escalate the situation, but Wrecker threw an entire tray of food at the clone trooper and triggered a brawl. Omega later tried to claim responsibility for the incident when the Bad Batch were called in for punishment by the Empire, but Hunter refused, giving her a warning to stay away from their squad to avoid getting herself in trouble.[1]

Omega later stood by Nala Se's side as she and Prime Minister Lama Su attempted to convince Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin to consider the Bad Batch an asset to the new Galactic Empire. However, Tarkin was more concerned about the squad's tendencies to disobey and disregard orders, especially since they failed to execute Order 66. Though she failed to comprehend most of what she overheard, Omega got the impression that Tarkin didn't trust clones and tried to warn Hunter as the Bad Batch was about to depart on a mission to Onderon but he dismissed her concerns. Nonetheless, she insisting on joining him, suspecting that it was no longer safe on Kamino, but Hunter replied that change took time to get used to and left.[1]

Later, Omega and her droid companion AZI-3 entered the squad's barracks. Omega looked around in awe at their gear, especially their group photograph, but was eventually discovered by a force of clone shock troopers who had come to confiscate the squad's gear. She was incarcerated and held in a newly constructed holding cell along with the Bad Batch, who were imprisoned following their refusal to act on Admiral Tarkin's orders to take out Saw Gerrera's rebel cell on Onderon.[1]

Escape from Kamino

Omega helping the Bad Batch fight Crosshair

Omega was instrumental in the group's escape, sneaking out to deactivate the ray shield after Wrecker damaged a wall panel to allow her to sneak out. The troopers eventually noticed that she was missing from the cell, but she then dropped down on them from the ceiling, recovering quickly to deactivate the ray shield and free her new companions. As the group planned their next move, she told Hunter that their gear was likely in the hangar with the rest of their equipment. After the force geared up, one of their own, Crosshair, who had just been outfitted with new armor and had his inhibitor chip effects magnified, came to stop his former companions from leaving. After a fight that involved Omega using a blaster for the first time and incapacitating Crosshair's weapon, the group escaped on the Bad Batch's ship, the Havoc Marauder.[1]

As the group discussed their next move, Omega gave Wrecker his tooka doll that she had rescued during the battle, which greatly pleased him. She then made her way to the cockpit to look out at space for the first time. Eventually, the others moved to the cockpit as well, where Hunter let her sit, telling her to strap in as they made the jump to hyperspace in order to travel to the Suolriep sector.[1] Omega's escape proved problematic for the Kaminoans, who desired access to her unaltered genetic template.[3]

Journey on Saleucami

"I know I made a mistake, and I have a lot to learn, but you don't have to get rid of me. I left Kamino with you. This is where I wanna be."
―Omega, to Hunter[src]

The Havoc Marauder landed a short distance away from Cut Lawquane's farmstead and the Bad Batch began to walk towards their homestead. When Omega walked out into the sun, she was in awe, having never experienced any environment besides the perpetual rain of Kamino. She was fascinated with her surroundings, scooping some up dirt in her hand and laughing. As the group marched on, Omega took in her surroundings, observing plants and butterflies. When they reached the home, Hunter introduced Omega to Cut, his wife Suu, and his adopted children Shaeeah and Jek, who took her outside to play while the others talked inside.[5]

Shaeeah and Jek showed Omega how to play catch, but when Omega accidentally threw the ball beyond the fence, the two children told her not to worry about it and went inside to pack, as the family was looking to leave Saleucami because of the Imperial presence. However, Omega decided to retrieve the ball anyway, at which point she drew the attention of the predatory nexu. Hunter and Suu came out to rescue her, chasing off the creature. When Hunter began to berate her for being irresponsible, Cut stepped in. As Omega apologized, Cut hugged her and brought her back inside. Eventually, Omega sat in the cockpit of the Havoc Marauder in sadness as Echo and Tech worked on forging chain codes for the Lawquanes so they could leave Saleucami in safety.[5]

When Tech communicated to Hunter about his plan for them to intentionally get their ship impounded so they could get inside the complex, Hunter was angry but Omega approved of the plan. Although Tech did not plan for Omega to be onboard when they were impounded, they stayed together in the ship while Echo snuck in and stole chain codes for Tech to forge. When clone forces amassed near the ship, preventing Echo or Tech from passing the codes to Hunter, Wrecker, and the family, who had entered the spaceport and planned to pick them up before boarding the last shuttle, Omega grabbed the codes and snuck out herself to deliver them, succeeding in bringing them to the group.[5]

Hunter and Omega after the skirmish

However, when Omega noted that Tech had made an extra one, Hunter pulled her aside and told her that she would be going along with the family, as they could give her a life that he and his squad could not. Omega said that she wanted to stay with them, but Hunter told her it was for her own good before going to rendezvous with the rest of the Bad Batch, who had been discovered and were battling clone troopers. In sorrow, Omega went along through the gate with Cut and his family, but eventually decided to disobey Hunter and return to the ship. She made it back onboard as the squad escaped, and later approached Hunter to apologize but also to reaffirm her desire to be among them, to which Hunter replied that if it was what she wanted, then they would be glad to have her even if he still had much to learn about taking care of her.[5]

Crash-landing on the Ordo Moon

"I'll go with you."
"No, that thing could be dangerous."
"I'm part of this squad now too, right?"
―Omega convinces Hunter to let her come with him to reclaim their capacitor[src]

Omega in the cockpit with the squad

After their escape from Saleucami, the group stayed on the move. They began to ration food as their supplies ran low. At one point, Omega was sitting on the floor looking at a datapad when Hunter passed out ration bars. Omega offered hers to Wrecker when the bigger clone expressed his disappointment at the rationing, but Hunter reminded Wrecker that Omega did not even have a proper place to sleep. Just then, the Havoc Marauder dropped out of hyperspace, with Tech stating that the ship was suffering from damage sustained on Saleucami. Wrecker helped Omega strap in as the shuttle crashed on the Ordo Moon.[6]

Omega remained in the cockpit as Echo and Tech went outside to replace the capacitor. When they returned, they reported that the hull was being damaged by something outside. Omega saw a creature outside, and she yelled for the others to come. Tech deduced that the creature was an Ordo Moon Dragon, which fed on raw energy, and Echo checked the diagnostics to confirm that the capacitor had been stolen. Hunter prepared to go retrieve the device, and although he initially declined Omega's offer to join him, he relented and the pair donned breath masks and set off as Hunter tracked the creature.[6]

Omega followed Hunter as he used his enhanced senses to follow the creature. He eventually located it, but as he tried to grab the part, the dragon attacked him and knocked off his breath mask. Omega grabbed his mask for him and put it back on his face, but not before Hunter fell unconscious. Omega contacted the others with a comlink, but then decided to take Hunter's blaster pistol and flashlight and set off down the tunnels where the dragon disappeared. After some crawling, she located its den and the capacitor. When she returned to the surface, Hunter was worried for her safety, but Omega proudly displayed the part and reassured him that she was fine and had completed their mission. Back onboard the ship, Wrecker showed her the room he had set up for her in the gunner's nest. Omega expressed excitement and gratitude to Wrecker, telling the squad she had never had her own room before. Hunter then told her that she was now part of the squad.[6]

Supply run on Pantora

As the Bad Batch discussed their next move, Omega was puzzled as to why Hunter suggested they go to the uninhabited Idaflor, saying that they should explore and reminding them that she has never seen the galaxy like they have. After the group remembered they were out of rations and low on fuel, Echo noted that he had overheard comm chatter that had their ship on the wanted list. The group decided to stop at Pantora to resupply, which Omega was happy to visit.[7]

Omega initially trusted the deceitful Shand.

Upon landing, Wrecker and Tech stayed behind to scramble the ship's signature and refuel, while Omega joined Hunter and Echo on a quick supply run. As they made their way around Ro Station, Omega was fascinated by a great variety of things she had never seen before. As Hunter bartered with a trader, Omega looked at a clone trooper doll in the store. After she knocked over a container of them and was reprimanded by the merchant, she picked one up and showed it to Echo. When Hunter called Echo over to discuss selling him to the trader, who thought Echo was a droid due to his disguise, Omega noticed several voorpaks being transported along the street. She ran over to them, and when one of them grabbed the doll out of her hands with its mouth, Omega chased after them. However, she quickly became lost, an in a very unfamiliar environment, was frightened until a woman approached her. Unaware that the newcomer was a bounty hunter named Fennec Shand,[7] who had been hired by Nala Se to recapture her,[3] Omega gratefully accepted her help as Shand feigned compassion and promised to help her find her friends.[7]

Hunter, having deceived the merchant and made 3,000 credits by selling Echo, eventually caught up to Omega. Sensing danger, he engaged Shand, telling Omega to run before he was headbutted and stunned. Shand gave chase, and as Omega made it into the maintenance tunnels, she ran in to Wrecker, whom Hunter had dispatched to locate her. When Shand caught up, Omega climbed a ladder to the surface as Wrecker fought Shand. However, Wrecker was quickly defeated, and as Omega found herself on a tower next to heavy speeder traffic, Shand had her cornered. As Omega ended up hanging off of the tower, Tech directed Hunter, who was riding a stolen speeder bike, towards her. Shand caught Omega as she fell and dropped her onto a transport before jumping on herself. After a fight with Hunter, the speeder Shand had commandeered was destroyed by Hunter's pyro denton explosive, and Hunter grabbed Omega before the group met up back at the ship and left Pantora. Identifying Shand as a bounty hunter, the Bad Batch realized someone had hired Shand to capture Omega.[7]

Searching for answers

The Bad Batch meet Cid

In the aftermath of their ordeal with the bounty hunter, Echo suggested they go to an old informant trusted by the Jedi, Cid, to find out information on their pursuer. Onboard the Havoc Marauder, Omega was given a comlink and taught how to use it. Omega initially playfully used it to communicate to the squad despite being right next to each other, but by the time they arrived on Ord Mantell to find Cid, she had become more serious, reciting the rules she had been given: don't wander off, pay attention to her surroundings, and use the comlink to contact them if she got into trouble. The group entered a run-down parlor in search of Cid, and while the squad was initially told to get lost by a Trandoshan woman, Omega deduced that the woman was actually Cid while the others discussed, an observation that Cid noticed and complemented.[8]

Hunter quickly agreed to carry out a mission to rescue a child named Muchi from a group of Zygerrian slavers on the other side of the planet. As they traveled there, Omega asked Echo about slavery. As Echo told her what it was, she frowned and said that she did not feel like that was right, to which Echo voiced his agreement. When they landed outside of Old Ord Mantell City, where the slavers were based, Omega was excited for their new mission, and was thus dejected when Hunter told her to stay with the ship as the squad moved in. Omega sat in the ship's cockpit and played with her doll, coloring it to resemble the Bad Batch's armor. As she showed her work to Gonky, she heard voices outside. She grabbed a backpack and escaped the ship as a pair of Zygerrians searched inside. Looking through a pair of macrobinoculars, she realized that her companions had been captured.[8]

Omega snuck around the Zygerrian's camp and quickly made a plan, unlocking a cage that housed a rancor. Although she was captured, she successfully set the beast loose, which caused havoc and gave Wrecker time to free the squad. Omega joined Echo in escorting the Zygerrians' three other prisoners, two Falleen and a human, away while Hunter, Wrecker, and Tech went after the rancor, whom they had realized was Muchi. As they helped the others escape, Omega claimed a Zygerrian energy bow off of the ground. With their mission successful, the team left to return to Cid, with Omega coming to ride on top of Muchi. Once the rancor was taken away by the majordomo Bib Fortuna, who was representing Muchi's rightful owner, the crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure, Cid payed Hunter what she owed the squad and informed him about Shand, understanding that there had to be a reason a bounty hunter like her was chasing them.[8]

First job for Cid

After their successful mission, Omega practiced shooting with her new bow in Cid's Parlor. Omega was proud to hit three out of twelve shots, which Echo said was just luck and that she needed to keep practicing. Omega was not strong enough to consistently aim accurately, and her efforts were not benefitted by two other patrons who began gambling on her success. After missing two more times, Cid arrived, and after booting the two other aliens out of the parlor, briefed the group on their first mission for her: stealing a tactical droid head on Corellia, which had valuable information for Cid to sell.[9]

Omega stops Rafa Martez from escaping with the tactical droid head.

The group landed and infiltrated a facility that was scrapping battle droids. Once they snuck past the police droids and got inside, Hunter stationed Omega and Wrecker as lookouts while he, Echo, and Tech moved in. Echo accessed a computer to discover that there was only one tactical droid inside, which Omega was able to spot on the conveyor belt. However, another individual disguised as a worker went in and stole the head. Omega alerted the others of this development before she found herself face-to-face with another person, Rafa Martez. Omega quickly drew her bow, causing Rafa to freeze and put her hands up. However, Rafa convinced her to lower the bow and talk it out, and when Omega did, Rafa knocked the bow out of her hands. The bow managed to discharge a single bolt that ruptured a steam pipe, alerting the facility workers to their presence. Rafa communicated with her sister Trace, who had the droid head, and as she went to meet up with her, Omega gave chase and told Hunter she was in pursuit. Meanwhile, the rest of the Bad Batch fought back against the police droids that began advancing on them.[9]

Omega followed Rafa, who eventually got the head from Trace, but ended up losing it onto another conveyor belt. Omega and Trace raced for it, with Omega taking an alternate route that allowed her to get to it first. As she fled from Trace, Echo shut down the power and caused the conveyor belt to stop, which made Omega trip and lose the head. As she became pinned underneath debris, Trace swooped in and reclaimed the head. However, as Omega remained trapped and neared the edge of the conveyor that would tip her into a fire, Trace and Hunter came to save her.[9]

The two groups decided to join forces to escape the growing number of police droids, with Trace and Tech using the tactical droid head to command the other droids that were going to be scrapped into an army to fight the police droids. However, as the group fled the building, the head was destroyed. The groups parted ways, with Omega telling the sisters that they could visit them on Ord Mantell.[9]

Adventure on Bracca

"I've met many clones in my time, but never one like you."
―Rex, upon meeting Omega[src]

The Bad Batch continued doing missions for Cid and earned enough credits to get by. Omega and Wrecker formed a tradition of purchasing and eating Mantell Mix after their missions. After a mission stealing a lizard from the Rhokai gang, the pair went out for Mantell Mix as per usual, but when they returned, the former Clone Captain Rex was seated with the others at the bar. Omega curiously took a close look at Rex when introduced, telling him that he was a first generation clone. Rex was confused on how she knew, and she quickly responded that she could tell by the lines on his face.[10]

As the group continued talking, Wrecker asked Tech for treatment for his headache. When Rex learned that the squad had not had their inhibitor chips removed, he quickly stood up and backed away, placing his hand on his blaster. Omega was distressed when Rex said that the four clones were a danger to themselves and to her. Hunter eventually got Rex to calm down and agreed to go about with his plan to remove the chips. Omega and the others met Rex on Bracca. As they overlooked a downed Venator-class Star Destroyer, Rex explained his plan to find the ship's medical bay and remove the Bad Batch's inhibitor chips there.[10]

Omega tries to hide from Wrecker

Omega followed as Rex led the group inside the ship, avoiding the patrols of the local group in power, the Scrapper Guild. They eventually located the medbay, but as Wrecker prepared to be the first to be treated, his chip activated. After knocking out Tech, he chased Rex, Echo, and Hunter out of the room, with Omega staying as instructed to look after Tech. However, Omega decided to grab Wrecker's blaster and fire at him. As Wrecker had incapacitated the other three, he chased after Omega. She slipped underneath a door, but Wrecker forced the door open with ease due to his considerable strength. Omega tried to hide, but she was discovered. However, she was saved by Rex, who stunned Wrecker just as she was discovered.[10]

As Wrecker was prepared for the chip removal once again, the procedure finished, but Wrecker did not immediately wake up. Rex suggested Hunter take Omega topside to get some air, but Omega firmly said that she would stay with Wrecker. The group sat around waiting, with Omega falling asleep, but she was wakened by Wrecker's gentle hand on her head. Omega excitedly welcomed him back, and as the others prepared to have their chips removed, Wrecker pulled Omega aside and apologized for what he had done, feeling bad that he couldn't control himself. Omega told him that she didn't blame him, and pulled out some leftover Mantell Mix, telling Wrecker that their mission was a success and that they couldn't break tradition.[10]

Omega would later travel with Echo and Wrecker back to the surface, where Wrecker began to teach her how to disarm bombs. Omega initially felt good about her ability to do so, but when Wrecker handed her a pair of cutters and told her to disarm the bomb that he had just activated in the next ten seconds, Omega panicked and failed to do so, running before it exploded. However, it turned out to be a prank from Wrecker, who had only let her try on a smoke bomb. The pair met up with Echo to return to the group, but Echo noticed that they were being watched by the Scrapper Guild. He and Wrecker attacked the trio of scavengers, eventually stunning all three of them. When the Batch met up, Echo suggested they leave, but Tech and Hunter decided that the group would go to salvage weapons from the armory and data from the bridge that would settle their debt with Cid. Omega asked what to do with their three prisoners, but Hunter promised that they would be in and out before they even woke up.[11]

In the artillery bay, Omega found a chest of explosives while Wrecker found several proton torpedoes. Omega asked if he would teach her how to arm one of those, but Wrecker smiled and said that this one was all his. Then, Tech, who was on the bridge, commed Omega to come to him, and Omega arrived to help Tech copy the master drive. As Omega looked out the viewport at the wreckage of several Republic ships, she asked Tech what the war was like. When Tech gave a technical answer, Omega asked him what the war was really like. Tech did not elaborate, but when Omega asked why a button was blinking, Tech got up and told her it was the proximity sensor. While Tech guessed it was a malfunction, a trio of Imperial shuttles flew by and landed. Tech warned Hunter, who joined them on the bridge. Seeing Crosshair, Omega followed Hunter and Tech back down to Echo and Wrecker as they worked out a plan to escape.[11]

The Bad Batch sneak through the ship with their new supplies.

The Bad Batch, carrying minimal supplies they had taken, moved through the corridors towards the hangar. However, when Tech patched into their comm systems and realized that the Empire's plan was to push them towards the hangar, they changed course towards the artillery deck. However, there, they were nonetheless surrounded. Crosshair told his men to aim at Omega, and while she hid behind Hunter, Tech fired the cannons, destabilizing the deck and sending debris crashing down around them. The group escaped to the ion engine chamber, but they were eventually pinned down there as well, with one of Crosshair's men starting the engines while the main force trapped them inside. Tech came up with a quick plan to plant the explosives they had, and Omega reached one of the higher points on the cylinder, sending the part of the engine they were occupying crashing to the ground so they avoided being incinerated. There, Hunter and Omega were separated from the others, but Hunter told the group to meet back at the ship.[11]

However, back at the ship, Omega and Hunter found a group of clone troopers had been killed. Hunter examined the bodies and determined there was someone else there, and the pair watched as the bounty hunter Cad Bane, who was interested in the reward the Kaminoans were offering for Omega, emerged from their ship. Protected behind Hunter, Omega listened as Bane said that, after killing so many clones over the years, it had become easy. Omega soon deduced that Bane was a bounty hunter, and Bane demanded that she be turned over, but Hunter said she was with him and the Force Clone 99, which made Bane say it was a pity for him. Hunter and Bane engaged in a standoff, and Omega watched in horror as Hunter was defeated and hit in the chest. Omega tried to fight back, but was quickly disarmed by Bane's droid companion Todo 360 and stunned by the bounty hunter before being taken.[11]

Escape on Bora Vio

Omega was placed in a cell on Bane's ship with a ray shield blocking her exit. However, she was able to escape when she tricked Todo 360 into letting her out to help him repair his leg. Omega searched for her comm device as Bane's ship landed at a facility on Bora Vio, fleeing the ship after Bane went into the hold to look for Todo, who had been unresponsive. Omega contacted the Bad Batch, but she did not know where she was and the group could not pinpoint her location. Tech tried to talk her through how to help them find her, but Bane came and cuffed her, stomping on and destroying her comm device.[3]

Omega trying to contact the Bad Batch

As they returned to the ship, Bane spotted Taun We's corpse, the Kaminoan who was supposed to meet him and deliver his payment. Omega recognized her and was horrified. Taking cover, Omega watched as Bane and Fennec Shand, the bounty hunter who had pursued her on Pantora, face off. As the two fought, Omega fled, finding herself in a room with several clones in tubes. She was able to access a computer to send out a signal that her team would eventually recognize, but Shand soon caught up to her. Shand told her that she was trying to help Omega, but Omega pointed out that she had said the same thing on Pantora. They were interrupted by Todo, who Shand quickly smashed against one of the tubes and incapacitated. However, the tube cracked and eventually spilled its contents onto Shand, allowing Omega to escape.[3]

Omega tried to descend a ladder, but she was hampered by her handcuffs and eventually hounded by Todo. Omega ended up jumping on top of the butler droid and descending rapidly to a platform. Omega noticed several Kaminoan flight pods and used one to escape the facility. Just as the engines began to fail, the Havoc Marauder located her and picked her up, and Omega was reunited with the team. A tearful Omega hugged her companions, asking why there were so many hunters after her. Echo told Hunter that he had to tell her, and he did. That night, Omega and Hunter sat in the cockpit, Omega said that she could not sleep because she was thinking about the Kaminoans and how they could not fight off all of the hunters that would always be after her. Hunter reassured her and promised that she would never go back to Kamino, making her smile.[3]

Left out

"But th-the mission. I'm part of the squad too."
"Then following orders shouldn't be a problem."
―Omega and Hunter[src]

Omega happily returned to Ord Mantell with the rest of the Bad Batch, eating Mantell Mix while riding on Wrecker's shoulders. As they made their way back to Cid's, Tech announced that they should try to lay low since Omega had two bounty hunters after her. She offered some of the snacks to Echo while Hunter whispered to Wrecker that he thought Omega needed a break after what she had been through. Speaking with Cid, the group was offered a job to help rescue Senator Avi Singh from Imperial prison on his planet, Raxus Secundus. Hunter refused the job, saying they would not help a former Separatist, but his main rationale was that he did not want to endanger Omega's safety on an Imperial-occupied planet. Hunter begrudgingly decided to accept the job and leave Omega behind with Cid. Omega was enthusiastic about their new mission, and was saddened when Hunter notified her that she would not be coming with them. Omega pleaded that she was a part of the squad too, but Hunter told her that she was, and she should have no problem following orders. Omega groaned but complied, and as soon as the others departed on their mission, Cid put her to work cleaning.[12]

As Omega moped around the parlor, Cid eventually came over and, after telling her to stop dampening the mood in the parlor, asked her what was wrong. Omega told her that she was worried about her friends before stating that it was not fair that she couldn't go on the mission with them. Cid responded that life was not fair and that maybe if she wasn't so helpless she wouldn't have been left behind in her care. Omega was hurt by her words and stalked away.[12]

Omega playing Dejarik with Cid

Later, Omega watched as Cid squared off against Ketch and Bolo in a game of dejarik. Omega raised her opinion on what move Cid should play, and was promptly ignored, which allowed her opponents to capitalize. Cid groaned and asked Omega what move she should play now, and after she listened to her, pulled out the victory. Cid asked her how she knew what to do, and Omega responded by saying that she was good at strategy games. Cid asked if she was good enough to make her some money, offering her thirty percent of the cut, but Omega smirked and replied that she wanted sixty. Eventually, the two faced several other opponents, winning games and drawing a large crowd of various aliens to the parlor to watch. By the time Hunter, Wrecker, Echo, and Tech returned with the rescued Senator Singh and his droid, Omega had made enough money to pay off the Batch's debt to Cid. Although Hunter was not happy that Omega drew so much attention to herself, he was pleased by her earnings and challenged her to a game, saying that if she won, she would not be left out of any other missions. Omega excitedly took her seat, and when Hunter asked her if she was ready for it, she confidently responded by asking him if he was ready to face her.[12]

Delivering weapons

"Make a new friend?"
"She's kinda strange.... I like her. Did you know flying's about a feeling?"
―Omega and Hunter regarding Hera Syndulla[src]

Omega meeting Hera Syndulla

Omega and the crew would soon take the Havoc Marauder to deliver weapons to a group of Twi'leks on behalf of Cid. While the others made the deal, Omega gave the young Twi'lek girl Hera Syndulla a tour of the ship. Omega showed her the cockpit, where she learned that Hera wanted to become a pilot. Omega was fascinated by her ambitions to fly, and after showing the other girl her room in the gunner's nest, waved goodbye as the group of Twi'leks departed.[13]

Returning to Ryloth

Shortly after departing from the weapons deal, the Batch received a transmission from Hera, who told them that her parents had been captured by the Empire and she needed their help, saying she will send them coordinates. Hunter, surprised Hera had their comm channel to contact them, questioned Omega as to why she gave it to her, but Omega simply said that it was for emergencies and that they needed to help her. Hunter shook his head and said that they could not help everyone, but Omega pointed out that, in fact, that was what soldiers do. The group reluctantly decided to meet Hera on Ryloth.[14]

After hearing Hera's plan, listening to her offer to pay them, and scouting out the enemy forces, Hunter decided that he did not want to go about helping her. Omega was angered by Hunter's choice, saying that they needed to help her. Hunter said that he was being strategic and that he was not going to risk the squad, but Omega pleaded with him, saying that Hera was just trying to protect her family, just as she would do for any of them. As Hunter pondered, Omega consulted Hera, telling her that Hunter meant well and would come around. Hera asked why she trusted him, to which Omega said that he, as well as the others, were all her brothers. Finally, Omega said that if Hera could use her local knowledge to form a plan, they might be able to convince Hunter to help her. Omega and Hera concocted a strategy and introduced it to the squad: they proposed they split up to attack the refinery to draw away Imperial reinforcements away while the others infiltrated the city to rescue Hera's parents. Hunter decided to follow Hera's lead, ordering Tech and Wrecker to mount the attack on the refinery while he and Echo snuck into the city.[14]

Omega and Hera arrive at the refinery and order Chopper to shut down the control console that are controlling the cannons stationed there. However, Chopper gets captured by two clone troopers, leaving Omega and Hera to steal a shuttle to destroy the control console. The two managed to shut down the cannons, leaving Tech and Wrecker the chance to destroy them. Meanwhile, Hunter and Echo sneak into the capital and rescue Cham Syndulla, his wife, and several others. The group make it back to Cham's old outpost where Hera says goodbye to Omega and thanks her for helping rescue her parents. She also tells her to look after her brothers as they need her.

Personality and traits

"She is my medical assistant. One with a curious mind that causes her to wander."
―Nala Se[src]

Omega was an enhanced clone,[1] a pure replica of the original clone template Jango Fett,[3] who had spent her entire life on Kamino until she joined the Bad Batch and escaped. Although she was a child, Tech noted that she had a heightened state of awareness.[1] According to her, she had no behavioral modification biochip.[10] Nala Se was very protective of her, often telling her to stay close by. However, she was not a rule follower and was very curious, investigating the Bad Batch's quarters when they left on a mission.[1]

Omega was an enhanced clone who had a curious mind.

Omega was compassionate and empathetic, quickly taking a liking to the Bad Batch. She looked up to the squad, and even copied Hunter's mannerisms while sitting next to him. During the Bad Batch's brief imprisonment, she consoled Crosshair even though he had made a snide remark about her earlier. As the group tried to make its escape, she saved Wrecker's tooka doll Lula for him amidst the battle. Although she had no combat experience, she proved fairly capable with a blaster during a battle against Crosshair and a squad of clone shock troopers.[1] Although she was not the most skilled fighter, she was smart as well as resourceful. She was very skilled with strategy games, helping Cid make money playing dejarik while the other members of the Bad Batch carried out a mission to Raxus.[12]

Having spent her entire life in Kamino, Omega had never known anything but the facilities of the Kaminoans and the oceans of Kamino. She was naïve to many of the galaxy's intricacies. She was quick to trust strangers, which got her into some trouble on Pantora when she trusted Fennec Shand,[7] although this friendliness was also helpful during the Bad Batch's mission to Corellia, when Omega quickly became friendly with Trace Martez.[9] As the group traveled the galaxy to various planets, she was new to many of the things she saw, from the markets on Ord Mantell[8] and Pantora[7] to even simple things like sunshine and dirt. She was excited by seeing and experiencing new things, becoming fascinated by the soil, plants, and butterflies on Saleucami[5] and insisting on accompanying Hunter to the central marketplace when they stopped on Pantora for a resupply so she could see the city.[7] She was unaware of the phenomenon of slavery until educated on the subject by Tech and Echo.[8]

As Omega became accustomed to her new life with the Bad Batch, she proved eager to be involved and be a contributing member of the group. Despite her inexperience, her enthusiasm proved useful as she learned to carry out missions with the squad.[6][8] When she was left behind when the rest of the Bad Batch traveled to Raxus, she was visibly disappointed to be left out.[12] She particularly enjoyed the company of people who were not considered "normal"; she quickly developed a friendship with the young pilot Hera Syndulla, enjoying her appreciation for flying.[13]

Equipment

"I get my own comm device?"
"Technically, it was Crosshair's, but he doesn't appear to be needing it."
―Omega expressed excitement as Tech outfits her with a comlink[src]

Omega wore a white tunic with red-and-blue sleeves, black pants, and black boots. She had a Kaminoan-style forehead pendant which she wore in her hair,[1] although she removed it and altered her hairstyle after escaping Saleucami.[5] During the mission to Ord Mantell, Hunter provided her with a wrist-mounted communicator. On the same mission, she acquired a retractable Zygerrian energy bow[8] that she went on to use in combat.[15] However, she was quite ineffective using the weapon at first due to not being practiced or strong enough to shoot straight.[9]

During her time on Pantora, Omega ended up taking a clone trooper doll without paying.[7] She considered the toy trooper to be a female like herself, painting her armor black to make the doll a member of the Bad Batch.[8] For Omega, the doll was not only one of her only playthings and a comfort to her when she was scared, but a connection to her past life on Kamino as well as her new life with the Bad Batch.[16]

Behind the scenes

"The interesting challenge was: How do you challenge a super soldier? And what can you throw at them that's something that they're not equipped to deal with? That's how the idea of Omega came to be. Soldiers can figure things out, but what they've never had to deal with is a young kid. And that completely changes how they relate to one another and changes their perspective on the galaxy... You drop them into a Separatist battlefront and they're going to be fine no matter what. But having to be guardians and be responsible for the upbringing and rearing of a child is something totally different."
Jennifer Corbett, The Bad Batch head writer[src]

Omega was created for the 2021 Disney+ series Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
