- ―Hound to his pet massiff
"Hound" was the nickname of an Advanced Recon Force trooper sergeant stationed on Coruscant at a military base around the year 20 BBY. He was among the many who searched the base after Ahsoka Tano, who was framed for murdering Letta Turmond, escaped from her cell.
Hound was one of the millions of clone troopers created on the aquatic planet of Kamino for the Grand Army of the Republic, being trained for years as an Advanced Recon Force trooper. Hound, however, was specifically trained to be a massif handler.
During the Clone Wars, Hound was part of the Coruscant Guard and was stationed at the capitol. Along with a massiff named Grizzer, Hound searched the outside of a Republic military base for Ahsoka Tano, a Jedi on the run for being framed in a murder she did not commit. When Grizzer caught Tano's scent, the massiff brought Hound to the spot where Tano had been hiding but seeing nothing, he went on with Grizzer to search the area. Hound would later take part in the chase after Tano and nearly corner the fugitive Jedi.
Hound sported ARF trooper armor that was painted red, the color of the Coruscant Guard clone shock troopers, with the picture of a Massiff on his left shoulder pad. He wore a kama with holsters for DC-17 hand blasters. Hound was also known to occasionally carry a DC-15s blaster.
