Heater was a clone trooper that served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Unlike many clones, however, early on, he deserted from the GAR for a brief time before being captured. However, he would be given a chance at redemption.

History[]

Heater was born in 32 BBY on the water planet of Kamino, being cloned from the genetic template of Jango Fett.[1][2] He would receive basic training and would eventually graduate, being deployed into the Grand Army of the Republic.

However, early on in the war, Heater would desert from the GAR, leaving his former unit behind.[3] Eventually, he would be captured and brought back to Kamino under Republic captivity. Upon their return, they were greeted by their fellow clone trooper brothers with resentment and disgust. Heater would get in a fight at one point with another trooper named Slim.[3] Commander Wolffe broke the fight up and pulled Heater into his office, where he assigned him a new mission that would redeem himself, as well as the other deserters, which saw the creation of his new squad.[3] The unit, who was assigned to assault a Separatist weapons depot, was still getting used to being back and being around one another. Despite this, they spoke freely. However, while discussing their tactics or reasons for deserting, the gunship they were on was shot down, with the squad, which consisted of Heater, Charlie, Sync, and Racetrack, managing to survive the crash, killing only the pilot.[3]After escaping the threat of immediate danger, the unit created a new plan, which would work as a success, despite Racetrack's consistent complaints and remarks about deserting again. With that, the squad was redeemed, despite their previous desertions.[3]

Later in 22 BBY, Heater would be in battle on the planet of Hisseen under the 501st Legion and the command of Captain Rex. During the height of the battle, a trooper known as Twitch expressed that they should retreat, which led to Heater telling his story of desertion to his ignorant brother. Heater would later be injured in the battle and saved by Wolffe and the 104th Battalion.[3]

Armor and Equipment[]

Heater initially was equipped with Phase I clone trooper armor that possessed a grey cape, as well as stitch design across the face of the helmet.[3] He was also equipped with a DC-15A blaster rifle. Later in the war, Heater was placed in the 501st Legion under the command of Captain Rex. Under this new command, he painted blue around the outline of the T-visor, as well as two Republic insignia on the left and right side of his helmet.[3]

Personality and Traits[]

Heater was an independent clone, which was one of the two extremes which the training of the GAR had produced; the other being unquestioning in loyalty. Because of his independence, he would desert his original squad. However, he would look back on this with regret and would make an attempt to redeem himself when the opportunity arose.[3]

Heater, like a majority of his clone brethren, was born in 32 BBY on Kamino.[1][2] He also possessed the standard traits of Jango Fett, including brown eyes and a height of 1.83 meters. However, potentially a defect in his genetic code, Heater possessed white hair. Heater was also blind in left eye and possessed excessive scarring on his face.[3]
