- "Do you think we've got a chance, General?"
"I don't believe in chance, Commander. I know if we work together, we will stay alive, and someone will find us."
- ―Wolffe and Plo Koon
CC-3636, nicknamed "Wolffe," was a veteran clone trooper commander in the Grand Army of the Republic who served with Jedi General Plo Koon during the Clone Wars. The leader of the 104th Battalion's famed Wolfpack squad, Commander Wolffe proved to be tireless in his efforts against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, displaying an affinity for strategy. On his first mission with Koon, Wolffe served on board the Jedi Master's flagship, the Triumphant, when Koon led a task force to eliminate the Separatist warship Malevolence. While confronting the Malevolence in the Abregado system, however, all of the Wolfpack was eliminated, save for Koon, Wolffe, and troopers Sinker and Boost. The four were rescued by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, and Wolffe had his unit adopt new clone trooper armor in honor of his fallen comrades. Refusing to let the loss of the Wolfpack deter him from his service, he inspired loyalty amongst his men.
During the Battle of Khorm, Wolffe lost his right eye in a fight with the Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress. Although scarred and forced to wear a cybernetic eye replacement, Wolffe continued his military service to the Republic, undertaking several key rescue missions with Koon to Felucia, Vanqor, and Lola Sayu. He personally oversaw a supply mission to the groundquake-devastated planet Aleen, assisted in liberating Togruta slaves from the Zygerrian Slave Empire on Kadavo, and took part in a mission that recovered the lightsaber of the late Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas.
The Clone WarsEdit
Lost in spaceEdit
- "Thanks for getting us out of there in one piece, General Skywalker."
"You have my Padawan to thank for that. She always said you guys would pull through."
"General Plo said someone would come for us. We're glad he was right."
- ―Wolffe and Skywalker
Some months into the Clone Wars, Wolffe and Koon were dispatched by the Jedi Council to investigate a series of surprise attacks on Republic fleets which always left no survivors by the Separatist military leader, General Grievous, in his Subjugator-class heavy cruiser, the Malevolence. The Wolfpack and Koon set out aboard the Triumphant, with two other Venator-class Star Destroyers as support, and soon tracked the Malevolence to the Abregado system. Wolffe informed Koon that the Malevolence had spotted them and had reduced its speed, prompting Koon and Wolffe reported their position and request reinforcements to the nearest Republic military presence: the fleet of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who were in the nearby Bith system. However, the HoloNet signal was lost when the Separatists jammed signal, and began their surprise attack.
Grievous fired its secret superweapon: a massive ion cannon. The ion blast engulfed all three Star Destroyers and shut down all the systems and equipment; leaving them dead in space. The now defenseless fleet fell under turbolaser fire from the Malevolence. Koon, realizing the fleet was lost, ordered the evacuation of the Triumphant's crew to its escape pods. Wolffe, Koon, Sergeant Sinker and trooper Boost boarded a pod, Pod 1977, and ejected into space just as the Triumphant exploded;turning the fleet into a graveyard and killing all of the Wolfpack—save Wolffe, Sinker and Boost.The group, alone drifting in the debris field, was unsure that anyone would come rescue them, except Koon, who was sure of it. Soon thereafter, Wolffe learned the pod's power grid was down, leaving them with little air and no way to contact help. Koon reasoned that if they got the power restored they would survive long enough to be found, assuring them that if they worked together they would survive, therefore, the inevitable rescue party would save them. Just then, another pod appeared through their pod's viewport, but the clones within had fallen victim to rocket battle droids manning a boarding ship—their pod had been "cracked open", the clones floating dead in the vacuum. Disturbed by the sight, Boost and Sinker quickly restored the power, so Wolffe manned the comm system to search for rescue craft. However, another pod nearby broadcast a distress signal because the battle droids were attacking them. Wolffe made visual contact with the pod just as the droids cut into the pod and killed the troopers; leaving Koon, Wollfe, Sinker and Boost as the sole survivors of the battle.
The droids spotted the group’s pod and headed towards it, forcing Koon to quickly decide to meet the enemy face-to-face—his breath mask and Boost and Sinker’s Phase I clone trooper armor would protect them from the vacuum. Woffe, however, who was armor-less, remained inside the pod to ensure the distress signal remained broadcasting, as it was their only chance of survival. The Jedi and the two troopers fought the droids, who had latched on to the pod with the boarding craft's pincers and activated the "squeeze" feature on the boarding craft that began to damage the pod. Wolffe picked up a signal from Tano and Skywalker, who had come to search for survivors—against a direct order. Wolffe informed Koon, who ordered him not to lose the signal as the droid’s craft damaged the pod enough that it began to lose pressure, therefore, Koon destroyed the craft using his lightsaber and the Force, defeating the droids. Koon, Boost and Sinker remained outside of the doomed pod to allow Wolffe more oxygen as he used his connection to the Force to relay their position to Tano. She and Skywalker quickly located them, and Skywalker used a tow cable to pull the pod into the hold of his freighter, the Twilight.
Skywalker popped the viewport from the pod using the Force, allowing Wolffe, who was coughing and weak from a lack of oxygen, to sit and rest while a 2-1B medical droid tended to the weakened clones. Grievous, at the helm of the Malevolence, after learning the rocket droids had been killed, returned to the debris field to locate the survivors. Koon, Skywalker and Tano, in the Twilight's bridge, shut down all the ship's systems and Skywalker's astromech droid, R2-D2. However, the 2-1B, TB-2, was not shut down and the Malevolence picked up the signal from the droid and fired an ion blast at the Twilight as a result. Skywalker, however, a prestigious pilot, used his skills to escape the debris field, evade the ion blast and enter hyperspace. The Twilight rendezvoused with Skywalker's fleet, and aboard the Resolute, where Wolffe thanked Tano and Skywalker for rescuing them, glad that Koon's faith had come to pass.
Losing an eyeEdit
Some time later, the Wolfpack's ranks were replenished with new troopers and Wolffe and his battalion participated in a battle on the planet Khorm. During the fighting, Wolffe was permanently scarred when Count Dooku's Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress cut his right eye, leaving a long scar across the right side of his face. He later had a silver cybernetic replacement installed. Despite his injury, Wolffe continued to serve and lead his troops.
- "They made it through the first wave. Concentrate all fire on the cruiser on the left."
- ―Wolffe commands the Republic fleet during the battle over Felucia
Following the Battle of Khorm, the Wolfpack and Koon were deployed on the Negotiator, a Venator-class Star Destroyer, to break the Separatist navy's blockade of the planet Felucia. The Republic forces, led by Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, had been overwhelmed by the droid army, so Koon led a group of Low Altitude Assault/infantry gunships and V-19 Torrent starfighters through the blockade in order to rescue Skywalker and his troops, while Wolffe oversaw the space battle against the Separatist battleships and starfighters. Wolffe directed the clone gunners to target and destroy the Confederate Munificent-class star frigates. Meanwhile, Koon and the rest of the Wolfpack extracted Skywalker, Tano, Kenobi and the clone soldiers and brought them to safety aboard the Negotiator. They then returned to Coruscant, having completed the rescue mission.Wolffe then assisted Plo Koon and Ahsoka in rescuing Windu and Skywalker from the wreckage of the Endurance on Vanqor. He also went went with Koon to rescue Skywalker's, Kenobi's, and Ahsoka's team from the Citadel on Lola Sayu.Some time later Wolffe and his squad received some armor upgrades and took part in a attack on a Separatist outpost on Felucia, commanded by General Grievous. However, while everyone were distracted by the ongoing battle, Commander Tano was captured by a Trandoshan hunter and was brought to the Trandoshan moon Wasskah, where the Trandoshans used to hunt sentient beings for sport. After the battle on Felucia was over, the group noticed Commander Tano was missing and Anakin launch a huge mission to find her, with no results. However, a Wookiee relief force aided by bounty hunters rescued Tano and her fellow Jedi friends and brought them back to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
Mercy Mission of AleenEdit
- "Here's how it is. My orders are to deliver supplies and re-establish power and communication systems. Report back to the transport the moment that R2 unit has completed the download. Tell them we'll be out of their hair in no time."
- ―An impatient Wolffe, to C-3PO, the translator for the Aleena
En route to resupply Koon's forces, Wolffe was ordered by Senator Padmé Amidala and Master Yoda to drop off relief supplies to Aleen to help the Aleena. Wolffe also had Amidala's protocol droid, C-3PO and Skywalker's astromech, R2-D2, much to his annoyance. Once on Aleen, Wolffe spoke with King Manchucho and set up stations for their supplies. After the mission, Wolffe and his men then dropped the droids off with Master Adi Gallia. Wolffe then boarded General Grievous' ship with Plo Koon and his men to rescue Galia. Wolffe then found C-3PO and R2-D2 and took them back to their ship.
Rescue Mission of KavadoEdit
Wolffe then went to the Zygerrian Slave Empire's processing facility on Kadavo with Koon and Admiral Coburn. He then assisted in rescuing Kenobi, Rex, Skywalker, Ahsoka, and Kiros's Togrutas from plunging to their deaths. Wolffe then attended the Republic's strategy conference at Valor.
- "We're taking you in now, Commander."
"That's not going to happen, trust me. Now, I'm not going to hurt any of you… We're not going to hurt any of you, but you're not taking me in."
"Commander, we are taking you in."
- ―Wolffe and Ahsoka Tano, the latter refusing to be arrested alongside Asajj Ventress
Wolffe then took a squad of shock troopers to Coruscant's underworld to find Ahsoka Tano and ascertain if she was really behind the bombing at the Jedi Temple. During his search, he found Ahsoka with Dooku's former assassin turned bounty hunter Asajj Ventress. He tried to take them both but was subdued by Ventress. Wolffe then found Ahsoka at Level 1315's warehouse and stunned her. He found a create full of Nano-droids nearby, which seemingly proved Tano was behind the bombing.
Search on Oba DiahEdit
- "The hull shows substantial scoring and wear. Whenever it crashed, it wasn't recently. General Plo, the scans check out. It's a T-6 shuttle, all right, serial number 775519."
"I want the entire area cleared. We're taking everything back to Coruscant."
- ―Wolffe and Plo Koon, as the latter comes across Sifo-Dyas's lightsaber in the wreckage of the shuttle
Wolffe then went with Koon to one of the moons of Oba Diah. There they found the shuttle that belonged to Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. They also find Sifo-Dyas' lightsaber in the shuttle and reported it back to the Jedi Council. He then went to Ord Mantell with Aayla Secura where they found evidence linking the recent battle to former Sith Lord Darth Maul's Shadow Collective.
Age of the EmpireEdit
Under the Empire's reignEdit
- "They're clones!"
"No, Kanan! Wait!"
"Jedi! They've come for revenge!"
- ―Wolffe thinking the rebels came for revenge
Wolffe survived the Clone Wars and at some point removed his control chip. In the years after the Empire's birth, Wolffe was living with Captains Rex and Gregor in a modified AT-TE on Seelos, having managed to remove their control chips that forced them to follow Order 66.
Several years before the Battle of Yavin, they were contacted by the crew of the Ghost, who were sent by Ahsoka Tano to acquire locations of Outer Rim bases for the rebellion. When Kanan Jarrus identified the clones and drew his lightsaber, Wolffe identified him as a Jedi and assumed he had come for revenge, prompting him to open fire on the Jedi. Rex managed to break up the fight before Ezra Bridger revealed that Ahsoka sent them. Wolffe later privately discussed whether or not to aid the rebels with his brothers, fearing retribution from the Empire if they did so. Unbeknownst to his brothers, Wolffe secretly tipped off the Empire to the presence of a Jedi on Seelos.
Subsequently, Wolffe drove the AT-TE as the clones and Ghost crew went hunting for joopas, using Garazeb Orrelios as bait. After successfully luring and killing the joopa, Kanan desired to get their intel and leave, though Rex convinced him to stay for dinner. As Sabine Wren was granted access to the clones' database, she discovered that one of them has alerted the Empire. Rex realized Wolffe tipped them off, who regretfully admitted to alerting the Empire to protect his comrades from persecution for helping the Jedi, as well as having hidden the messages that Ahsoka had sent Rex. Rex then managed to convince him that the Empire was the enemy. Subsequently, they discovered a probe droid had been spying on them before Rex shot it down. Afterwards, the group prepared for an imminent invasion from the Empire.
While the Lothal rebels urged the clones to come with them and join the Rebellion, Wolffe and his fellow Clones insisted on staying behind to delay the Imperials so that the Ghost crew could escape. During the Imperial assault on Seelos, Wolffe and his companions rode their AT-TE against Agent Kallus' three AT-AT walkers. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, the clones were determined to go down in a blaze of glory. However, Ezra convinced his fellow rebels to help the clones. Flying the Phantom, the rebels succeeded in hijacking one of the AT-AT walkers and using it to immobilize the other Imperial walkers; forcing Agent Kallus and his surviving crew to retreat into the desert. Following the battle, Rex joined the Rebellion whilst Wolffe and Gregor stayed behind on Seelos, taking the remaining AT-AT walker for their new home.
