Rank: Vassal of the Coiled King
Tier: Middle 3
Background: Torrent, originally known as ARC-2119 "Bouncer" was a Beta-class ARC Trooper who served in the 332nd Legion before his desertion from the Grand Army of the Republic. Upon being transferred to the Third Systems Army from the Special Operations Brigade, Bouncer was surprised by the lax and decidedly unprofessional behaviour being exhibited in comparison to other GAR units. Over time, his own behavior gradually shifted in response.
Sometime into his service within the 3SA, Bouncer had gotten into a drunken black-out. That night, he started a fire within a training room as a result of his drunken stupor. After returning to his quarters and falling asleep, he was violently apprehended by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. After an ultimately unsuccessful interrogation session, he would be put through multiple trials and tribulations, including a two-day long torture session wherein he was locked inside a dark anechoic chamber, unable to move. After release, Grand Admiral Tarkin had a surgical droid wipe Bouncer's memory of the event. However, the memory wipe was not entirely successful, and would later result in recurring nightmares of the incident, further destabilizing his mental state.
Resuming his service, Bouncer went on multiple missions with the 3SA under Tarkin's watchful eye. Most notably, he was part of a pirate ship-boarding mission that ended with him firing his T7 Ion Disruptor at the reactor core, triggering the imminent explosion of the ship. Nearly all of the clones were able to retreat, save for one named "Wildcard". Upon return to the Sims, a clone named "Denal", who was close to Wildcard, received news that he didn't make it back alive. Upon reading the mission report and realizing that Bouncer was responsible for the reactor overload, Denal assaulted Bouncer and got both troopers sentenced to the brig.
Shortly after being imprisoned, Bouncer escaped his confinement by inflicting injury upon himself and attacking the medical team sent to treat him. He made his way to the hangar and commandeered an X-wing, which he used to leave the ship; though he was shot down and presumed dead when he crash landed on the planet of Eriadu. After acquiring a ship on Eriadu and officially escaping from the GAR, Bouncer begun getting recurring nightmares of his torture and traumatic experiences in the 3SA.
These thoughts and memories continued plaguing his mind until Bouncer was convinced that simply escaping from the Republic wasn't good enough, and that he needed revenge for the actions unjustly taken against him. He hatched a plan and returned to the Sims I under the identity of ARC-2190 "Torrent". He was able to seamlessly fit in on the ship, and although Tarkin and Clone Commander "Ignis" did discover his true identity, he was able to convince them that he truly wished to fight for the Republic again, while in reality he intended on using his downtime to find security flaws within the ship that he could eventually exploit. After further missions with the 3SA, Torrent lost his left arm in battle, and departed to Coruscant without notice.
Once he arrived on Coruscant, Torrent spent a significant amount of time further developing his plan with the information he had gained, as well as acquiring the necessary explosives and starship. He ended up with a large amount of Rhydonium and a salvaged LAAT, both well-suited for his purposes. After acquiring a cybernetic arm replacement, he departed once again for the Sims. Upon arriving, he transmitted the proper clearance codes and landed in the hangar. Explaining that the cargo within the LAAT was highly classified, the hangar crew still insisted on a standard security check. Torrent quickly dispatched of the nearby clone troopers and disconnected the LAAT from his X-wing, then took off and activated the explosive detonator just before he jumped into hyperspace. With the Sims I utterly destroyed and thousands of clone troopers dead in its wake, Torrent received a vision in hyperspace and changed course to Jakku, where he later met up with the clone deserter Tup and joined the Vassals of the Coiled King in a bid to reset the universe to its natural state.

Weaknesses: Torrent suffers from severe PTSD due to his traumatic experiences, and as such, reminders of his past will severely throw him off in combat. Due to his success in destroying the 3SA flagship, he is extremely overconfident in his abilities and can easily be baited into combat with those far out of his league, allowing him to be easily eliminated from there. His cybernetic arm can be disabled with a targeted EMP blast, or manipulated through usage of Mechu Deru. Finally, although he believes in the goal that the Vassals possess, his actual loyalty to them is not unwavering, and a skilled manipulator could exploit his doubts to turn him against them.
