- "For the Republic!"
- ―Thorn's last words
Thorn was a clone trooper commander who served the Galactic Republic in the Grand Army of the Republic's Coruscant Guard during the Clone Wars. He carried a Z-6 rotary blaster cannon that he called Hammer. While on a mission to protect Senator Padme Amidala on the planet of Scipio, his garrison of clone troopers was attacked by the Separatists. Droid gunships cut down his troopers and deployed commando and super battle droids. After all his men were killed, Thorn kept fighting, using the Hammer as a melee and long range weapon. However, he was greatly outnumbered, and was shot multiple times in the chest until he was finally killed by a commando droid.
Behind the scenesEdit
Thorn was created by Dave Filoni and the story team of Star Wars: The Clone Wars as an homage to the character Thor in Marvel Comics' 2012 movie The Avengers (which at the time of Thorn's unveilment had just been released), as the episodic director Steward Lee was the biggest Marvel fan among the Clone Wars crew. Filoni first revealed an image of Thorn on his Facebook page on May 14, 2012 and stated that the character would appear in The Clone Wars: Season Five, but the episode arc in which he appeared was moved to the sixth season.
