A Clone Captain, also known as clone trooper captain, was a rank held by clone troopers in the Galactic Republic's Grand Army who commanded companies of 144 troopers. The sixteen captains of a regiment were in turn led by their respective Clone Commander, or in some cases, a Jedi General. Standard Phase I captains wore armor featuring four maroon circles on the left chestplate as well as a stripe of maroon down the length of each arm, vertically up the middle of the helmet and laterally around the visor.
CT-7567, also known by his nickname “Rex,” was a respected Clone Captain who led Torrent Company of the famed 501st Legion. He often took orders directly from Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, and served as the Jedi General's "first in command." Due to this Rex commanded larger portions of the 501st than just Torrent Company, and actually had command over the entire legion, as shown at battles like the battle of Umbara. Due to this Rex also had authority over Execute Battalion and Carnivore Battalion of the 501st Legion.
