Samson was a clone trooper that had served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. However, after surviving the Clone Wars, Samson and several other clone troopers began to become disgruntled with the new regime of the Galactic Empire. Eventually, Samson managed to get in contact with former Captain Rex and join his underground network.[3]

History[]

Samson was born in 32 BBY, cloned from the genetic template of Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett, on the water planet of Kamino.[1][2] Samson received basic training and was eventually deployed with the Grand Army of the Republic to the First Battle of Geonosis. As the Clone Wars progressed, Samson managed to survive throughout. However, in 19 BBY, following Order 66 and the reorganization of the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire, many clones felt disgruntled with their new regime. Following the Emperor's decree to phase out clone troopers from the Imperial Army, Samson made the decision to desert, making contact with former Captain Rex and joining his network.[3][4]

In 18 BBY, Samson was sent to the planet of Pantora alongside Rex, Captain Howzer, and Greer, in attempt to escort former Separatist Senator Avi Singh and his droid to a meeting with Imperial Senator Riyo Chuchi. Greer, Samson, and Howzer were all stationed on the perimeter, while Rex escorted the Senator directly. Greer was stationed near a tunnel entrance in the facility with Chuchi, while Samson remained closer to her. Once Rex, Singh, and the droid arrived, the meeting with Chuchi began. However, Greer was ambushed by clone assassin CX-1, who choked Greer to death.[3] The assassin deployed a thermal detonator through a nearby vent, which caught the attention of Rex, who dove to catch it and return it through the vent. Rex and Samson followed the assassin through the tunnels, while Howzer pursued by BARC speeder. Howzer intercepted the assassin, stunning him with his DC-15S blaster carbine. The three troopers took the stunned assassin to their base on Teth, avenging Greer by questioning the assassin for vital information.[3]

Upon arriving back at the base, Rex and Howzer escorted the assassin into the base, where they, along with Fireball, questioned the assassin for an intelligence they could gather about Tantiss, while Samson was placed on perimeter patrol with another trooper. Rex and Howzer had called Clone Force 99 to their base upon discovering that CX-1's target list included Omega. Upon their arrival, Rex, Howzer, Samson, and the other trooper on patrol greeted the commando squad, despite Howzer's distrust of Crosshair, who had previously operated as an Imperial operative.[3] As the group returned inside, Samson and the trooper returned to their patrol. However, unbeknownst to them, CX-2 had managed to track CX-1 to Teth and began planting explosives on the ships stationed outside. Upon discovering CX-1's location and Omega's presence at the base, he began his assault. He detonated the explosives on the ships, which killed both Samson and the other trooper on patrol.[3] Later, once an Imperial detachment arrived, led by Commander Wolffe, Samson's body was discovered and buried by the clones that served as Imperials out of respect for their service.[5]

Armor and Equipment[]

Samson was outfitted with Phase II clone trooper armor lined with purple markings, which distinctly identified him. Samson was also armed with a DC-15A blaster rifle during his patrol. Samson also possessed a specialized chest-piece, similar to Howzer, which allowed him to carry more ammunition.
