Echo, or CT-1409,[note 1] was an ARC Trooper corporal that used to be in Domino Squad during his clone trooper training on Kamino during the Clone Wars. He later became a high ranking clone trooper in the 501st Legion and achieved the rank, along with Fives of ARC Trooper which was his dream. He was presumed dead on Lola Sayu and taken in custody of the Techno Union. He was used as a pawn by the Separatists using him to use algorithm but was later rescued by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, Captain Rex and Clone Force 99 and he was promoted to corporal for his bravery in the Battle for Anaxes. He was a clone of Jango Fett, and served within the Grand Army of the Republic's 501st Legion until leaving to join Clone Force 99.
Echo was trained on Kamino to be a soldier. He was on the Domino Squad for his training for the Citadel Challenge. They failed during practice and during their test. Due to this, Training Sergeant Bric suggested that they should reassigned to maintenance. The squad was given a second chance, and because of this, the squad passed their final exam.
Rishi Moon InfiltrationEditEcho and Domino Squad were assigned to the Rishi outpost. During his time there, Echo liked to read reg manuals to entertain himself. The outpost came under siege by Commando Droids, a siege that resulted in Echo, Fives, Hevy and Cutup being the only survivors. The four escaped through the ventilation shafts. Echo reminded his brothers that they weren't supposed to go outside because of creatures known as Rishi Eels. As he said this, Cutup was picked up by an Eel and quickly was eaten. The three were keeping a low profile. When they saw Captain Rex and Commander Cody arrive for there inspection on the base. Hevy, attached a flare to his pistol he'd taken and fired it. The officers took notice of this and retreated from the landing platform. The two met up with the survivors and planned an assault on the outpost. The group successfully repelled the droids only to discover there were more on their way. While Rex, Cody, Fives and Echo escaped, Hevy stayed behind and held the droids back. He detonated the makeshift bomb the five had created and destroyed the base. This left Echo and Fives the final remaining members of Domino Squad.
