"Are you embarking or what?"
"I'm waiting for my mates"
"You shift your shiny silver backside now, I got a schedule."
―The loadmaster and RC-1136[1]

A short, wrinkled Duros male served as a loadmaster in the Galactic Republic's Grand Army and was stationed aboard the Acclamator-class assault ship Implacable[1] in 22 BBY,[2] during the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Hours after the First Battle of Geonosis, the loadmaster was directing clone troopers[1] on the Outer Rim planet[3] Geonosis onto gunships, which were transporting the weary and wounded troopers onto the Implacable.[1]

While the ill-natured Duros barked commands at the troopers, he had a short exchange with clone commando RC-1136 "Darman," who was waiting for his squadmates. The loadmaster irritably ordered Darman aboard the gunships without his squad, to which the commando responded by placing his vibroblade under the loadmaster's chin. After the exchange, the Duros quickly became submissive to the clone, referring to him as "sir" and treating him with a newfound deference.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The loadmaster appeared in the 2004 novel Hard Contact, the first novel in the Republic Commando series written by Karen Traviss.[1]
