- "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 during the Clone Wars. He carried a Z-6 rotary blaster cannon that he called Hammer. He was killed on the planet Scipio.
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.
