"Waxer. Boil. Am I glad to see you. Trapper and I are the only ones still alive."
Obi-Wan Kenobi — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

"Trapper" was the nickname of an Advanced Recon Force trooper who was then assigned to Mace Windu on Malastare to find survivors in the sinkhole made by a bomb. He later served under High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Commander Cody in the Second Battle of Geonosis.


Battle of Malastare

Trapper was sent to Malastare to aid General Windu and the Dugs. When the Republic's new bomb, the Electro-proton bomb came down, it destroyed all of the droid forces but made a large sinkhole. There, he was dispatched on a gunship with Mace Windu to investigate the sinkhole because it sucked up many of their troops. Soon Trapper found survivors with other troopers who took care of the troopers. Then Windu took Trapper, Clone Commander Ponds, and fellow trooper Hawkeye to search for the cause of the sinkhole. Mace and the troopers unknowingly walked onto Zillo Beast and disturbed it. It woke up and crushed Hawkeye, but Windu, Ponds, and Trapper escaped.

Battle of Geonosis

When the Jedi found out that there was a factory on Geonosis making an army of battle droids, the Jedi took an invasion force to attack the planet and destroy the factory. Trapper was ferried to Geonosis alongside Kenobi in the LAAT/i gunship Bad Kitty, but they were shot down and crashed in the midst of battle. Kenobi and Trapper were the only survivors. Commander Cody found Kenobi's gunship and sent Waxer and Boil to aid them. Waxer and Boil carried Kenobi and Trapper to the safety of an AT-TE where Trapper required medical attention. Soon after the invasion force destroyed the shield generator and Trapper was taken back to a republic cruiser in a gunship.

Behind the scenes

Dee Bradley Baker voiced Trapper, like every clone in The Clone Wars movie and The Clone Wars TV series.

Trapper's name is a nod to the well-known character, "Trapper" John McIntyre, from the television sitcom M*A*S*H which aired in the 1970s through early 80s.[1]
