Name: CC-7567 "Rex"

Rank: Marshal Commander

Tier: Low 2

Background: CT-7567 was a veteran clone trooper captain who led the Grand Army of the Republic's acclaimed 501st Legion during the Clone Wars. Bred and trained on the planet Kamino, CT-7567 entered into Republic service at the Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY. He gained respect from Jedi officers and clone troopers alike as an honourable commander, becoming known as one of the best and toughest clone troopers in the Grand Army. He was even selected for special command training under Advanced Recon Commando Alpha-17, following which he took the nickname "Rex." As the captain of the 501st, Rex served as second-in-command to Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, whose bravery and unorthodoxy in battle he came to share. He was close friends with Marshal Commander Cody, with their relationship mirroring that of their respective Jedi Generals, Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The four of them often received joint assignments to coordinate front-line campaigns against the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

At the Battle of Christophsis, Rex became a mentor to Skywalker's newly assigned Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, with whom he forged a strong bond. He also managed to rebound from the following Battle of Teth, an engagement he would never forget due to the near-complete eradication of his 501st unit, Torrent Company. While on a listening post inspection tour with Cody, Rex rallied a small team of rookie soldiers to retake Rishi Station, which they thereafter destroyed to thwart Confederate General Grievous's planned invasion of Kamino. He was soon deployed on tour aboard Skywalker's flagship, the Resolute, and joined Skywalker and Tano in leading 501st offensives at Bothawui, JanFathal, and other flashpoints across the galaxy. He took part in countless campaigns in the galactic theatre of war, from the containment of the Blue Shadow Virus on Naboo and the liberation of Ryloth to other hard-won victories like the Battle of Malastare, the Second Battle of Geonosis, and the Battle of Kamino.

Rex, after becoming the Marshal Commander of the Third Systems Army after Commander Cody stepped down, was murdered by Arcann Tirall being controlled by Emperor Vitiate.

Weaknesses: Rex cared for nothing more than his men and friends, and would do anything to look after them, constantly putting himself in danger to save them. A good man without a fault, and as such, easily manipulated. Leading him into scenarios where his friends were in danger would allow one to bait him into traps and deadly disasters. Rex was unpredictable and never really followed the plan. As such, if one were to manipulate a combat scenario where the plans laid by Rex and the 501st were in fact the correct steps to take, Rex would likely end up doing the opposite, thus placing himself out of the frying pan and into the fire.
