- "My name is Lawquane. Cut Lawquane."
- ―Cut Lawquane
Cut Lawquane was a clone trooper who fought for the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, Lawquane's transport was attacked by Separatist gunships, leaving his fellow soldiers either dead or injured. Lawquane fled, deserting the army, and later married Suu Lawquane. The War later made its way to Saleucami, where Lawquane, Suu, and his two adopted children lived. Lawquane met Clone Captain Rex, who helped defend his home from commando droids.
The Clone WarsEdit
Like all clone troopers, Cut Lawquane was a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, and was bred on the watery world of Kamino. Shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, the first battle of the galaxy-wide Clone Wars, Lawquane was on board a transport along with several other troopers. Two Separatist gunships attacked the transport, crashing it, and proceeded to eliminate any surviving clones. Lawquane, realizing there was no chance of survival if he stayed with his fellow soldiers, fled.
Lawquane eventually met Suu, a female Twi'lek whom he fell in love with and married. Lawquane became the adoptive father of Suu's two children, Shaeeah and Jek, and the four lived together on the Outer Rim planet of Saleucami, where they maintained a farm.
Battle of SaleucamiEdit
As the Clone Wars waged on, they eventually came to Lawquane's home of Saleucami. Separatist general Grievous intended to invade the planet, however his landing craft was shot down by the Republic, forcing him and his droids to flee to the planet surface in escape pods.
As the Republic's hunt for the general commenced, Lawquane was delivering his family's first harvest. He returned to his homestead later that night only to find a stranger in his barn. Lawquane cautiously entered the barn, arming himself with a staff, slowly raising it up at the stranger. The stranger pulled a blaster pistol on him, which Lawquane swiftly knocked from his hand, and discovered that the stranger was in fact a clone. The clone, Captain Rex, who had been staying in the barn after being injured by a commando droid sniper, immediately recognized Lawquane as a clone, and accused him of deserting the Republic Army.
