- "I can't disobey a direct order and leave my post, can I?"
- ―Ahsoka Tano and Gree
CC-1004, nicknamed "Gree," was a Clone Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic during the galactic conflict known as the Clone Wars. Gree was born and raised on the planet Kamino as a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett and, under the command of Jedi General Luminara Unduli, Gree led the 41st Elite Corps in a number of battles. After Padmé Amidala and Jar Jar Binks successfully apprehended Trade Federation viceroy Nute Gunray on Rodia, Gree was tasked with escorting the viceroy back to Coruscant. He failed, however, and Gunray escaped with the help of Asajj Ventress and Senate Commando captain Argyus.
Later in the war, Gree and Unduli commanded the 41st in the Second Battle of Geonosis. Alongside the 501st Legion, led by Anakin Skywalker and Clone Captain Rex, they led an attack on Poggle the Lesser's droid foundry in an attempt to provide a distraction for Padawans Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee. The distraction was successful and Tano and Offee were able to destroy the foundry and the newly-produced Separatist Super tanks.
In the final days of the Clone Wars, Gree and Unduli were present on Kashyyyk where they were assisting the Wookiees in their defense against the Separatist Droid Army. Jedi Grand Master Yoda had also arrived on the planet and he and Gree watched the battle unfold from an elevated command center. Gree received Order 66 from Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine during the battle, which commanded him to eliminate his Jedi Generals. He was forced to comply but before he could carry out the order, Yoda sensed a disturbance in the Force and quickly decapitated the clone commander.
Grown on the planet Kamino, Clone Commander CC-1004 was a clone of the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett created to serve the Grand Army of the Republic. Taking his name from a tentacled alien species, Gree was given command of the 41st Elite Corps and appointed to serve under Jedi General Luminara Unduli during the Clone Wars.
Escorting Nute GunrayEdit
Gree participated alongside Green Company when they rescued Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala, Representative Jar Jar Binks, and their protocol droid, C-3PO from Separatist leader, Viceroy Nute Gunray following their mission to Rodia. They were also able to capture Gunray. Gree, along with Luminara Unduli, and Padawan Ahsoka Tano were they were stationed on the Tranquility to escort Gunray to Coruscant to stand trial. However, the Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress, boarded the Tranquility to rescue or kill Gunray before he spoke a word to the Republic. Gree assisted Unduli in defeating the super battle droids. He then guarded Gunray with Senate Guard Commando captain Argyus. However, Argyus betrayed Gree and freed Gunray. Gree alerted Unduli and Tano to Argyus' betrayal. Despite knocking Argyus out, Gree was then knocked out by Gunray. The two of them escaped.
Second Battle of GeonosisEdit
Battle of Kashyyyk and Order 66Edit
During the final days of war, Gree commanded the Battle of Kashyyyk alongside Luminara Unduli and Grand Master Yoda. At the end of the war, the Clone Commander was given Order 66, which named all Jedi enemies of the Republic. Upon the order he and another clone scout trooper attempted to kill Yoda, however he and the clone were instead swiftly decapitated by the diminutive Jedi Master.
Personality and TraitsEdit
As a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Gree stood at 1.83 meters and had brown eyes with tanned skin. He also cut his hair into two rectangular like stripes with both of them being dyed red. Commander Gree was a very loyal soldier. This was shown when he advised Ahsoka Tano to not go against Luminara Unduli's command. He also fought and defeat Captain Arygus because of his betrayal. Commander Gree also had respect for his Jedi commanders and clone brothers, he never spoke ill-will toward them and never put a toe out of line.
Early in the Clone Wars, Gree wore Phase I clone armor. His armor was detailed with markings and sported the color green just as Green Company. Gree wore a black-colored bandoleer, which held extra ammunition. In his utility belt, Gree stored thermal detonators and "Droid Poppers" (EMP's). Gree later replaced his Phase I armor with the Phase II clone trooper armor. Much like his Phase I counterpart, his armor sported green markings, though in different sections of his armor, certain parts had darker shades of green. Exclusively on Kashyyyk, his forearm and leg armor featured camouflage markings, and his boot armor was black. He also carried a set of personal green-colored macrobinoculars. Gree, like some members within the 41st Elite Corps, carried another set of green Phase II armor for other more compatible environments and scouting missions. Like lots of commanding officers, Gree carried a variety of weapons and tertiary weaponry. He carried a DC-15A blaster; and occasionally used a DC-15 blaster rifle. Interestingly he was also equipped with one DC-17 hand blaster (complimented by a holster on the side of one leg) compared to the 2 pistols some other high commanding officers dual wielded.
