This article is about the clone trooper. You may be looking for person who worked for Jerf Huxley.

"Sinker" was the nickname of a clone trooper sergeant who fought in the Clone Wars. A member of the Wolfpack, he was under the command of the Jedi Master Plo Koon . He was stationed on the Triumphant when the ship and two other Venator-class Star Destroyers chased General Grievous' secret weapon to Abregado. The Malevolence destroyed all three ships, but Sinker, along with Jedi Plo Koon, Boost and Wolffe managed to escape via an escape pod. They were attacked in their escape pod by battle droids but were able to defeat them, thanks to Koon's skills. Koon was able to reach Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who was along with her master on a rescue mission for the battle survivors. Skywalker and Tano were able to rescue the pod and escape the Malevolence. Sinker would later serve under Koon in many missions.

Malevolence[edit | edit source]

"Don't look at me. It's Boost, sir. He only takes a bath when he's on leave."
―Sinker to Plo Koon and Wolffe[src]

When General Plo Koon was dispatched to search for the Separatist "mystery weapon" in 22 BBY,[3] which has destroyed several Republic fleets, Sinker was part of Plo Koon's troops. Upon discovering the Malevolence in the Abregado system, the Malevolence fired with her ion cannons on the Venator-class cruiser which rendered them without energy. Then the many cannons of the Subjugator-cruiser began to fire, quickly destroying the three ships. Sinker escaped from the Triumphant in an escape pod with Commander Wolffe, Boost and Master Plo Koon.[2]

After discovering another escape pod with its hatch cut right open, Plo Koon and the clones then picked up a signal from Pod 1977. However, the pod hunters arrived and destroyed it, and then proceeded to attack Plo Koon's pod. Plo Koon, Boost and Sinker exited the pod to confront the rocket battle droids, and they succeeded, especially after Plo Koon used The Force to push Sinker past the pod hunter ship and destroy the battle droids. The four were then rescued by General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano aboard the Twilight. However, while TB-2 was treating the injured clones, the lights went out, and the medical droid went to the bridge to find out what was wrong. In reality, the Twilight had stumbled upon the Malevolence, and Anakin, Ahsoka and Plo Koon shut down all power to avoid detection, but they had forgotten to turn off the medical droid. Fortunately, the Twilight was able to escape a wave from the ion cannons.[2]

Khorm[edit | edit source]

"Sinker, get the men into the gunships."
―Wolffe to Sinker, during the Battle of Khorm[src]

Sinker and Boost on Khorm.

Sinker, Boost and Commander Wolffe were among the Republic forces dispatched to the Separatist-occupied world of Khorm to secure the valuable Agrocite ore, which could be used to increase power to starfighters. Led by Jedi Generals Plo Koon and Kit Fisto, as well as Major Kendal Ozzel, the Republic successfully captured an Agrocite processing facility, but it was soon recaptured by the Confederacy. Later, as Koon and Fisto were scouting out the main Separatist stronghold located in an Agrocite mine, Major Ozzel and his troops returned to regain control of the processing facility, only to find it abandoned by the Confederate forces.[4]

Ozzel then assumed that the enemy was on the brink of defeat and ordered to move his troops to the Agrocite mine to assist the Jedi in its capture. Sinker and Boost, however, did not share the major's optimism and told Commander Wolffe that the Separatists had apparently abandoned the facility for a reason and were not intent on giving up the mine easily. Wolffe replied that the clones had their orders and told Sinker to get the clone troopers into the LAAT/i gunships. As Sinker and Boost had predicted, the Separatists offered heavy resistance during the assault on the mine, but nevertheless, the Republic managed to win the battle.[4]

Felucia[edit | edit source]

Sinker also served alongside the Wolfpack when they were trying to recapture Felucia from General Grievous. Sinker, along with Boost and Comet, went with Ahsoka to jump onto the wall of a Separatist base. Shortly after the battle, they discovered that Ahsoka had gone missing.[5]

Aleen[edit | edit source]

Sinker, with Boost and the rest of Wolfpack, went to Aleen to provide care for the native Aleena. They went along with R2-D2 and C-3PO and hooked up the power systems.

Kadavo[edit | edit source]

Sinker was sent to the Kadavo system to rescue Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Captain Rex from Count Dooku. Sinker, along with Comet and Wolffe, used jetpacks to rescue Togrutas from their prison cells.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Sinker wielded a DC-15 blaster like most clones at that time. His Phase I armor bore the markings of wolfpack.

Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

As a Human clone trooper, Sinker stood 1.83 meters tall. A loyal trooper, Sinker cooperated with the other members of the Wolfpack such as Boost, Wolf and the squad leader, Plo Koon.

Sinker believed that he, and all other clones, were expendable to the Republic's cause, though Plo Koon assured him otherwise.
