―Howzer and Fireball

Fireball was a clone trooper that served within the 41st Elite Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, until the Galactic Republic transformed into the Galactic Empire. After the clones were forced into retirement, Fireball joined Captain Rex's resistance network.

History[]

Fireball was born in 32 BBY, on the water planet of Kamino, cloned from the genetic template of bounty hunter Jango Fett.[1][2] Fireball received basic training and eventually graduated, being deployed in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, joining the 41st Elite Corps.[4] Following the execution of Order 66 and close of the Clone Wars, Fireball was active when the Galactic Republic transformed into the Galactic Empire.[4] However, once the Empire retired clone troopers from active duty, Fireball joined Captain Rex in his resistance network, alongside Nemec, a former 41st Elite Corps trooper.[4]

In 18 BBY, the network received intel that a prisoner transfer containing clone deserters was leaving the Balmorra system, which led to a small team being deployed to rescue the prisoners. The small unit consisting of Fireball, Nemec, ARC Trooper Corporal Echo and Clone commando Captain Gregor opened fire on the Imperial transport and boarded soon thereafter.[4] While Gregor stayed aboard their ship for exfil, Echo, Nemec, and Fireball boarded the transport. While Echo and Nemec attacked the bridge for information, Fireball went to rescue the prisoners. Fireball took out the Stormtroopers guarding the prisoners and opened the hold to discover Captain Howzer and two of his men. Howzer recognized Fireball, which he acknowledged stating that it was good to see the Captain. He handed one of the troopers his DC-17 hand blaster, while handing Howzer an Imperial DC-15S blaster carbine.[4] The four of them made their back to the ship, rendezvousing with Gregor aboard the ship. Meanwhile, Echo and Nemec boarded the specialized pod that reattached to their ship after retrieving what intel they could.[4] Upon returning to Coruscant, on Level 1313, Fireball and Nemec unloaded the ships supplies, while Howzer and his men rested along with Gregor.[4]

Later that year, Fireball assisted in establishing a base for the resistance network out of a B'Omarr Monastery on the planet of Teth, alongside a number of others. After a brief mission to Pantora, Rex, Howzer, and Samson, returned with a prisoner known only as CX-1, a Clone assassin who had killed fellow resistance member Greer and had attempted to kill Chuchi and former Separatist Senator Avi Singh.[5] Fireball was tasked by Rex with tearing through the data that the assassin had on him, namely from his helmet's database. He and Howzer also searched for an electro-shock device that would kill the assassin when it came time for questioning, locating it behind his teeth.[5] Rex and Howzer called Clone Force 99 to the base, as one of the assassin's targets was Omega.[5] The commando squad arrived, with Echo leaving once again after dropping them off to pick up Gregor from another operation. At this time, unbeknownst to the resistance network, CX-2 had managed to track CX-1 to the planet of Teth, setting explosives on all the ships.

CX-2 infiltrated the facility, located CX-1 and discovered Omega's presence. CX-2 utilized the explosives he had set on the ships, which killed Samson and another trooper on patrol and had killed another trooper in one of the control rooms. CX-2 had taken fired a sniper shot into the prison cell, killing CX-1 and forcing out the group who had been questioning him. Wrecker had opened fire on the assassin, while the rest of the resistance tried to call for support. However, CX-1 had destroyed the terminal, temporarily discombobulating Nemec in the process. Fireball, however, took advantage of the situation, grabbed a fireball and rushed the sniper, while the others escaped.[5] As he ran towards the assassin, he was shot in the shoulder, bringing him down. However, the flamethrower he equipped ignited a thermal detonator, which cause the control room to collapse completely, which stunned the assassin and killed the injured Fireball.[5][3] The following Imperial detachment that arrived, led by Commander Wolffe, would bury him and the other troopers who had been killed in the assault.[3]

Personality and Traits[]

Fireball was born with black hair and brown eyes, as well as the height of 1.83 meters.[1] Following the clones' mandatory retirements, Fireball found Rex's resistance network, likely due to his disdain for how clone troopers were being treated following their service to the Republic and its people. Fireball was very pleased when rescuing Howzer and his men, happy to reunite with an old friend.[4] Fireball was very technologically inclined, being assigned to sort through information brought to him from the clone assassin's helmet database.[5]

Armor and Equipment[]

Fireball was outfitted with Phase II clone trooper armor and two DC-17 hand blasters, likely signifying some position of rank, as few troopers carried pistols outside of ranked officers. The armor was painted a dark green, camouflage with brown suspenders and a grey helmet with dark green painted across the visor.[4] Fireball was also able to equip and utilize a flamethrower during the raid of the B'ommar monastery.[5]
