Mar'ek was an Alpha-class Advanced Recon Commando that served in the Grand Army of the Republic's Special Operations Brigade. He was assigned to serve under Jedi General Darrus Jeht.

History[]

Mar'ek was born in 32 BBY on the water planet of Kamino,[2] cloned from the genetic template of the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett.[1] Mar'ek was an Alpha-class Advanced Recon Commando, which meant he was genetically unaltered, aside from the advanced aging and the inhibitor chip that none of them knew of.[3][4] Mar'ek was also very aware of the 150 Contingency Orders.[3]

In 19 BBY, Mar'ek was serving alongside Jedi General Darrus Jeht in the Cularin system. While Jeht was serving on the bridge, Mar'ek and his second-in-command received Order 66 from Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine.[5] From there, he and his unit set an ambush for their former General. Mar'ek and his unit fired into the turbolift that had been coming down from the bridge of the Maelstrom. Jeht, however, hid in the turbolift. Upon the doors, opening, the unit fired into it with "enough rounds to drop a charging Rancor".[6]

One trooper investigated and was quickly decapitated. Mar'ek opened the unit to open fire once again, but the dead trooper's body took the majority of the bolts. Quickly, the rest of his squad was dispatched, with only Mar'ek quick enough to track the Jedi's movement. Mar'ek's DC-15A blaster rifle was sliced in two from the Jedi's lightsaber, which led him to draw his DC-17 hand blasters. His hand blasters were also cut away by the Jedi, which forced Mar'ek to fall back on to the ground. Jeht questioned Mar'ek, who would try in vain to call reinforcements; his fingers had been cut off with the hand blasters. Mar'ek's helmet was forced off by Jeht with a gesture of the Force. Mar'ek finally answered Jeht's question in a last act of defiance. In an act of anger, Jeht stabbed Mar'ek through the face with his lightsaber.[6]

Personality and Traits[]

Mar'ek, like all clones of the Jango Fett genome, had a height of 1.83 meters, black hair, and brown eyes.[1] Because of being an Alpha-class ARC trooper, Mar'ek was highly adept to serving in the Grand Army and was very aware of his capabilities.[6] He befriended his Jedi General, Darrus Jeht, during his deployment.[6] Mar'ek was more than willing to initiate Order 66, leaving friendship by the wayside.[6]

Armor and Equipment[]

Mar'ek was equipped with Phase II clone trooper armor and a plethora of Advanced Recon Commando equipment, like a rangefinder, pauldron, and Kama. He was given DC-17 hand blasters, as well as a DC-15A blaster rifle and a plethora of explosives attached to his utility belt.[6]
