"Live to fight another day, boys. Live to fight another day."
―Hardcase during the Battle on Umbara[src]

"Hardcase" was the nickname of a Galactic Republic clone trooper during the Clone Wars. He was killed during the Battle of Umbara.

"Let me at 'em!" was Hardcase's typical reaction when presented with enemy forces, no matter how overwhelming the odds. Legend has it that his growth chamber sprung a leak during his formation on Kamino, resulting in his characteristic, somewhat aberrant, but nonetheless useful hyperactivity. When the blaster bolts fly, Hardcase loses all sense of self-preservation and returns fire with zeal, determined to wipe out the enemy with repeated sweeps of his rotary laser cannon.


He was part of the search for General Grievous serving under Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi.[4] Over 1 year into the Clone Wars,[2] Hardcase fought in the Battle of Umbara. When the majority of the troopers felt that their new General, Pong Krell, was out of control, Hardcase felt that it could be fun and that the troopers could take him. When Fives, Jesse, and Hardcase disobeyed orders and participated in a rogue operation, he sacrificed his life to destroy the supply ship.[3]
