Charcter Bio - CC-1119 was cloned from the bounty hunter Jango Fett on Kamino, part of the Grand Army of the Republic that would serve in the Clone Wars. A special operations trooper and clone commander, CC-1119 participated in a training program during the war run by fellow clone Alpha-17, who stressed the importance of improvisational thinking and individuality. It was this emphasis on individualism that led to Alpha-17 bestowing names upon the graduates of his program; CC-1119 received the designation "Appo." When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declared the Jedi Order enemies of the Republic and issued Order 66, Appo led the 501st Legion against the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, serving alongside the Chancellor's new apprentice Darth Vader. Appo and his soldiers killed a number of Jedi that night. When Senator Bail Organa came to the Temple to investigate what had happened, Appo and several troopers met him on one of the Temple's landing platforms. Appo informed Organa that there had been a rebellion, but when Organa tried to enter the Temple, he drew his gun upon the Senator and ordered him to leave. As Organa turned to go, a Padawan, Zett Jukassa, rushed onto the pad and began slashing at troopers with his lightsaber. Appo ordered his troops to open fire on Organa, only to be cut down by Jukassa. His fellow soldier Sergeant Fox killed Jukassa, but allowed Organa to escape. Jukassa's attack wounded Appo, but he survived and recovered, later filing a report on the death of Jukassa and a number of other Jedi killed in the Temple.
Following the execution of the Jedi Order, Chancellor Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire. Appo's 501st Legion received a new name, as well: stormtroopers. Approximately a month after the declaration of Empire, Vader received word from spies that his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, was on Kessel; against the orders of now-Emperor Palpatine, he set off for that world. Palpatine dispatched Appo and his soldiers to follow. This was fortunate for Vader?the intelligence about Kenobi had been bait for a trap laid by Jedi Master Shadday Potkin, and a group of Jedi waited on Kessel to kill him. Though Vader was able to slay several of them, including Potkin, the last three Jedi survivors?Tsui Choi, Roblio Dart?, and Jastus Farr?combined their powers against Vader. Before they could kill him, though, Appo and his men arrived and opened fire on the Jedi. After the clones executed the last of them, Appo informed Vader that Palpatine sought his presence.
During CC-1119's training under Alpha-17, the commander developed his sense of individuality, learning how to apply it to combat situations. Appo was constantly ready to relay or obey his superior's commands, and sometimes even took the initiative to seek out some piece of intelligence before his superior asked for it. After the Republic transformed into the Empire, Appo was concerned that his role would be downgraded to law enforcement and was grateful to be assigned actual missions.
In his service to the Empire, Appo had an easy relationship with his superior Darth Vader. Though the black armor that Vader covered himself in often inspired fear in others, to Appo it was only natural that Vader should protect himself from harm. Vader, in turn, felt more at ease around Appo and his soldiers, and after the commander's death even expressed a certain fondness for the man. Vader kept Appo at his side much of the time, sometimes asking for the commander's analysis of military matters. The two could communicate with each other wordlessly, Appo easily understanding and carrying out Vader's commands that consisted of a simple nod of the head or gesture of the hand.
