"See, I'm flesh and blood, just like you."
―Waxer, to Numa — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

"Waxer" was the nickname of a clone trooper who served in Ghost Company, a military unit of the Grand Army of the Republic. During the Clone Wars against the Separatist Alliance, he fought in the Battle of Ryloth and the Second Battle of Genosis alongside fellow 212th trooper Boil. Waxer would later serve as a platoon leader, with the rank of Clone Lieutenant during the Battle of Umbara, where he was killed in a friendly-fire incident orchestrated by the Jedi General Pong Krell who had turned to the dark side of the Force.


Early life[]

Waxer was a clone of the bounty hunter, Jango Fett,[1] and was a soldier in the Grand Army of the Republic. He served as part of Ghost Company, and in the company he was alongside fellow clone trooper Boil.[4]

The Clone Wars[]

Mission to Krystar[]

Waxer was part of a detachment of the 7th Sky Corps under Commander Cody of the 212th. He accompanied Senator Padmé Amidala to Krystar to determine if there were prisoners being detained there. As Amidala met with Regent Queb and Representative Vishar Koss, Waxer and several troopers left the shuttle. Together they discovered a compound that had clone as prisoners of war guarded by a battalion of battle droids. Waxer met up with one of the prisoners, Wooley and convinced them to attack the guards. Waxer and his fellow troopers were able to free the prisoners and return to the shuttle.[6]

Siege of Hisseen[]

Waxer continued serving under Commander Cody during the siege of Hisseen. He helped Commanders Cody, Wolffe and his Wolfpack in rescuing members of the Hisseenian parliament from several battle droids.[6]

Battle of Ryloth[]

"Aw, you made a friend. Mission accomplished."
―Boil, to Waxer, regarding Numa — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Waxer was among the troopers of Ghost Company that went with Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Commander Cody as part of the first wave of the Republic's forces landing on Ryloth near the city of Nabat. After landing, Waxer then assisted Kenobi in taking out the battle droid's outer defenses.[5]

Waxer then went with Cody, Wooley, and Boil to scout ahead. After he and Boil went their way, they came across a little Twi'lek girl named Numa. He gave Numa a ration bar before a probe droid came across them. Waxer and Boil then went to Numa's home and comforted her until they received a signal from Commander Cody. As they Numa with her, Waxer, Boil, and Numa then came under attack from a pair of gutkurrs.[5]

Waxer comforts Numa

Waxer and the others were then able to escape using tunnels under Numa's home. Waxer then met up with Cody, Kenobi, and the rest of Ghost Company. He then told Kenobi and Cody that he and Boil were sidetracked by Numa. However, Waxer told Kenobi that she knew her ways around the tunnels underneath Nabat. Waxer, alongside Boil, then went with Kenobi and Numa to the six J-1 semi-autonomous proton cannon emplacements in the town square. As TX-20 and his troops attacked Cody's men, Waxer, Boil, and Kenobi were able to free the Twi'lek hostages. Waxer then assisted Kenobi in commandeering one of the cannons, loading it with Boil. Despite destroying the cannons, Waxer, Boil and, Kenobi were then knocked out by TX-20's AAT. However, they were saved when the Twi'leks ripped TX-20 apart. Waxer then rejoined the rest of Ghost Company and Windu's forces. He then said goodbye to Numa.[5]

Second Battle of Geonosis[]

"Why do we always get the fun missions?"
"Oh, this isn't the fun part. Getting back to the square is the fun part."
―Waxer and Boil — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Waxer then took part in the Republic's retaking of Geonosis, donning ARF trooper armor. On the side of his helmet, he added a small drawing of Numa. He then went with Kenobi and Cody to secure the landing area. Waxer and Boil were then sent to rescue Kenobi and any survivors in a downed gunship. They were then able to find Kenobi and Trapper and succesfully bring them. Waxer stayed by Obi-Wan's side as Cody briefed the situation. As the group was cornered by the Geonosians, reinforcements arrived in the form of gunships and the forces of Generals Skywalker and Mundi. Waxer was present as the plan to destroy the shield generator was briefed, which ended on a success.[7]

Battle of Umbara[]

Waxer moments before his death

Waxer then went with Kenobi's and Cody's forces to take the capital city of Umbara,[8] where he served as platoon leader of a platoon,[3] with the rank of Clone Lieutenant.[9] He was then contacted by Jedi General Pong Krell and was deceived into leading his platoon to ambush Umbarans who looked like Captain Rex and his men. Rex was told that the Umbarans were wearing clone armor. Both were tricked by Krell but Rex realized they all were clones and managed to stop the fight. Waxer was shot during the attack. He spoke with Rex, telling him that it was General Krell who told them to attack. A tear rolled down his face as he drew his final breath and died from his wounds.[3]

Personality and traits[]

Waxer helped care for the displaced Twi'lek girl Numa, persuading Boil to do likewise. After providing assistance in finding Numa's parents during the Battle of Ryloth,[5] Waxer added a drawing of Numa to his helmet by the time of his death on Umbara.[3]
