- "Lord Vader, Triton Squad reporting for duty, sir."
"Very good. Follow me, Commander."
- ―The Commander and Darth Vader
Triton Squad's second commander was a clone stormtrooper created from the genetic template of the bounty hunter Jango Fett. Originally bred as a clone trooper of the Galactic Republic, he became an Imperial stormtrooper following the Republic's transformation into the Galactic Empire by the end of the Clone Wars. By the time of the Imperial invasion of the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk, the Commander and his squad were assigned to the 501st Legion, an elite division of soldiers under the command of the Sith Lord Darth Vader.
During the early period of the Galactic Empire, Triton Squad—including its stormtrooper commander—was deployed with the 501st Legion to the planet Kashyyyk after the Sith Lord Darth Vader discovered that a fugitive Jedi Knight was being sheltered by the local Wookiee population. The Imperial invasion force was met with heavy resistance from the Wookiees, causing a battle to erupt with both sides suffering heavy casualties. Shortly after arriving on the Kashyyyk, Vader encountered Triton Squad just after they killed several Wookiee warriors. Reporting for duty, the Commander and his troopers accompanied the Dark Lord of the Sith during his hunt for the Jedi Kento Marek.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Yes, Sir. You heard him men, on the double."
- ―The Commander, relaying Darth Vader's order to Triton Squad
The Commander of Triton Squad was a male Human clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, and thus stood at 1.83 meters like his genetic template. Bred to be obedient to the chain of command, the Commander was a loyal soldier who obeyed orders without question, even during situations of extreme duress.
While serving on Kashyyyk, the Commander wore an early version of stormtrooper armor, customized with the notable blue design that the 501st Legion utilized during the Clone Wars. His armor was also equipped with a command pauldron and backpack. He was armed with the standard E-11 blaster rifle.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Commander of Triton Squad appeared in the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions of the 2008 video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. He is not seen, however, in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.
