- "Get him!"
- ―Trauma to his troops, upon sighting Savage Opress
"Trauma" was the nickname of an Advanced Recon Force Scout Trooper and Clone Commander, who served under in a unit led by Jedi Master Halsey during the Clone Wars. In 20 BBY, when Devaron's Temple of Eedit was attacked by Separatist forces, Trauma fought alongside Halsey and his Padawan Knox in defense of the Temple. During the battle, Count Dooku's freshly-christened Sith apprentice Savage Opress arrived and began to turn the tide in the Separatists' favor. Realizing this, Trauma engaged Opress in a brief confrontation but was quickly dispatched by the deadly Nightbrother. The remaining Republic defenses, including the two Jedi, fell soon after and the Temple of Eedit was consequently seized by the Separatists.
Biography[edit | edit source]
- "There were no survivors on Devaron. Everyone was killed, including Master Halsey and his Padawan."
- ―Clone Commando Boss, reporting on the fate of the Eedit Temple's defenders
The Advanced Recon Force Scout Trooper who adopted the nickname Trauma was a human male clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, born and raised on the planet Kamino. He was created to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, a conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and acquired the rank of Clone Commander.
In 20 BBY, Trauma and a group of Advanced Recon Force Scout Troopers were stationed at the Temple of Eedit on Devaron, under the command of Jedi Master Halsey and his Padawan Knox. When the Eedit Temple was attacked by the Separatist Droid Army, Trauma and his troops engaged the battle droids outside the Temple's main entrance. Alongside the two Jedi, who stood at the Temple's front steps in an effort to guard the doors, Trauma and his troops almost repelled the invasion force. During the battle however, Count Dooku's newly-anointed Sith apprentice Savage Opress entered Devaron's atmosphere at the behest of his master, and landed his Geonosian solar sailer on the Temple's front walkway. After he had exited his ship, the Nightbrother violently pushed his way past numerous B1-series battle droids and B2-series super battle droids, eager to confront the Republic forces. He received a single plasma blast from one of Trauma's men, before beginning a slaughter of the Temple's defenders with his spear.
Trauma, realizing that Opress was near single-handedly winning the battle, ordered his troops to attack him but the apprentice ruthlessly cut down all resistance. Trauma proceeded to charge at Opress and came to a crouched stop in front of the warrior. He attempted to fire his blaster but was killed after being simultaneously stabbed and launched into the air by Opress's spear. After Trauma's death, Opress continued to advance towards the Eedit Temple. He succeeded in murdering both Halsey and Knox, and contacted his master to report that the Temple now fell under their control. After the massacre, Delta Squad retrieved the bodies of the two Jedi on Devaron and transported them to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. They reported back to a group of four Jedi High Council members, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, where clone commando Sergeant RC-1138 stated that the battle left no survivors.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
Trauma was a human male clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, who stood at 1.83 meters tall. He was quick to engage Savage Opress in combat, whilst defending the Eedit Temple, which ultimately proved to be fatal.
Skills and abilities[edit | edit source]
Trauma and his troops fought well in the Devaron massacre, very nearly repelling the Separatist attack force. However, the commander failed to account for the arrival of the Magick-enhanced Opress. Trauma underestimated the warrior and entered melee range of his opponent during the battle, a mistake that cost him his life.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
Trauma wore customized Phase I ARF armor that featured stylized green and red markings, similar in appearance to the armor worn by his subordinates. Additionally, he sported a similarly colored pauldron and kama around his shoulders and waist, respectively. During the Devaron massacre, he wielded a DC-15A blaster carbine as well as two DC-17 blaster pistols, concealed within his waist pockets.
