- "I told you this was going to happen. We've wasted enough time with those losers."
- ―Bric, speaking to El-Les about Domino Squad
Bric was a battle-worn male Siniteen bounty hunter. During the Clone Wars, Bric was hired by the Galactic Republic to help train clone cadets on the planet Kamino as a drill sergeant. Bric, along with the Arcona bounty hunter El-Les, took the rank of Master Chief as he trained clone cadet squads. Bric personally conditioned the disobedient members of Domino Squad, a unit that was struggling. Around 21 BBY, toward the end of Domino Squad's training, Bric was disgusted with the team's inability to work with each other and wanted to reassign the members of Domino Squad to Tipoca City's military complex maintenance crew, where rejected clone cadets were assigned. After Domino Squad failed to pass its final challenge, the clones were given a second chance to retake the test, during which they came together and passed, an accomplishment that impressed the Master Chief. Bric and Domino Squad parted ways after the members became battle-ready clone troopers.
- "This particular unit seems to have some trouble. What do you recommend?"
"Well, I'm no Jedi, so forgive my bluntness, but I say they fail. Send them down to maintenance with 99 and the other rejects."
- ―Shaak Ti and Bric
Bric, a male Siniteen, was a battle-worn bounty hunter. During the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic hired the Siniteen as a drill sergeant to train various clone cadet squads for the Republic's Grand Army on the planet Kamino. In Kamino's Tipoca City, Bric was joined by another bounty hunter, the Arcona El-Les, and both took the rank of Master Chief as they trained the clone cadets. Bric personally conditioned Domino Squad, a unit that struggled to work as a team. Toward the end of Domino Squad's training around the second year of the war, Bric and El-Les joined Jedi Master Shaak Ti, who oversaw the training of the clone cadets on Kamino, in the city's military complex testing chamber. On a secure observation deck that overlooked the chamber, the trio watched Domino Squad practice for its final test—the Citadel Challenge, in which the clone cadets had to secure a flag at the top of a large tower. During the squad's practice exam, Bric and the others noticed Domino Squad struggled to work as a team, which caused the cadets to fail their test.
After their practice, the clones returned to their sleeping barracks. There, Bric broke up a fight between Domino Squad members CT-782 and CT-21-0408, nicknamed "Hevy" and "Echo," respectively. The next day, Bric and El-Les rallied Domino Squad and other clone cadet squads outside on a hangar deck. Near the two bounty hunters stood ARC troopers of the Rancor Battalion, led by Commander Colt, who were there to oversee the clone cadets' final test—if the cadets passed, they would be considered battle-ready clone troopers. Bric followed El-Les and Colt as they prepared to watch Bravo Squad, a clone cadet squad trained by El-Les that, according to Colt, passed its practice test in "ARC trooper time." On the observation deck, Bric, El-Les, and Colt watched the unit take and pass the Citadel Challenge before Domino Squad.
During Domino Squad's test, Bric told El-Les to give the squad its next set of instructions for the exam, and the Arcona bounty hunter relayed the instructions. However, Domino Squad failed to complete its task when one of its number was injured and left behind. After Domino Squad failed the Citadel Challenge, the two bounty hunters left the testing chamber and proceeded into the clone barracks, where El-Les informed Bric that Ti would allow Domino Squad to retake the challenge. The decision troubled Bric, as he had already made a request to reassign Domino Squad to the city's maintenance crew because of the cadets' continuing struggles. Later that night, Bric called for CT-4040, a cadet from Domino Squad whom Bric believed was the reason the unit was failing. When the clone did not take him seriously, Bric shoved CT-4040 in an attempt to force the clone into aggression, calling him a "cutup." However, CT-4040 did not retaliate, and instead thanked Bric for giving him a name. This incensed Bric, who promised that he would see Cutup's squad disqualified.
When it came time for Domino Squad's second attempt at the Citadel Challenge, Bric joined El-Les and Shaak Ti on the observation deck that overlooked the testing chamber. Prior to Domino Squad's test, Bric removed the ascension cables from the cadets' belts, an item that was needed for the Citadel Challenge. Despite El-Les' efforts to stop the test—as he saw Bric's actions as unfair—Domino Squad successfully used the Citadel tower's blaster turrets to scale it and pass the exam. Impressed with the squad's ability to improvise, Ti told Bric that his aggressive actions brought out the best of Domino Squad. After the test, the two bounty hunters congratulated Domino Squad on its success before watching their batch of clone troopers depart for the front lines.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Jedi don't have the time to train grunts like you, that's why they hired me!"
- ―Bric, to Hevy
A Siniteen bounty hunter, Bric stood 1.9 meters tall and weighed eighty-three kilograms. He also had olive-colored skin and yellow eyes. A stern, smart, and aggressive being, the battle-worn Bric took a no-nonsense approach when it came to military training. During his time training the struggling Domino Squad, the Siniteen drill sergeant told the cadets of the squad he originally had "high hopes" for them, yet their repetitive failures and lack of teamwork caused Bric to lose faith in the squad's abilities. Unlike fellow bounty hunter El-Les, who cared for Domino Squad, Bric did not tolerate failure. The Siniteen told El-Les that he cared little for the struggling squad and was concerned only with the payment that he would receive from the Republic after Domino Squad's training. Bric physically assaulted Domino Squad cadet CT-4040 in an attempt to force some aggression out of him. When the clone neglected to take Bric seriously, Bric called CT-4040 "a real cutup" due to his sense of humor and inability to take anything as more than a joke.
Before Domino Squad retook the Citadel Challenge test, Bric took the cadets' ascension cables from their belts prior to the test to challenge them. El-Les questioned Bric's actions, and he replied that only the best could pass the test; if Domino Squad wanted to pass it would have to improvise. The clones succeeded by climbing the turrets of the Citadel building in the testing chamber. Bric was impressed with their efforts and called the cadets "creative little clones." Jedi Master Shaak Ti claimed that Bric's actions brought out the best of Domino Squad.
Behind the scenesEdit
Bric was first mentioned in StarWars.com's Hasbro Comic-Con round-up article that was published on July 29, 2010. The character first appeared in "Clone Cadets," the first episode of the third season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, which aired on September 17, 2010. The episode's script originally described Bric as a Human, but his species was later changed to Siniteen. Bric was voiced by actor Larry Brandenburg in the episode.
Bric later appeared in the "Clone Cadets" tie-in children novel, Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Defenders of the Republic, released on October 7, 2010, and received a short mention in the UK comic Star Wars: The Clone Wars Comic UK 6.15.
The Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Head-to-Head presents a non-canonical event that features Bric. In the Head-to-Head guide, Bric is looking for someone to help him train clone troopers. The Klatooinian bounty hunter Castas applies for the job but underestimates Bric's requirements. In order to help train the clones, Castas has to defeat Bric. Although the pair have blasters, Bric wants to test the Klatooinian in head-to-head combat. Castas acknowledges this and proceeds to attack Bric. Castas, who is undisciplined as a fighter, is unable to stop Bric and wears himself out, failing the test.
