Description: CT-1409â€”nicknamed "Echo"â€”was a clone trooper who served the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. Born on Kamino, Echo was originally identified as CT-21-0408, a cadet of the Domino Squad along with his friends, Hevy, Cutup, Droidbait and Fives, before he graduated from the clone training center. On his first assignment after graduating, Echo was tasked with guarding the Rishi Station moon base, where he, along with Fives and Clone Captain Rex, aided in warning the Republic of an impending Separatist attack on Kamino. Echo was commended for his bravery and absorbed into the 501st Legion.
After the attack on the Rishi moon, Echo defended his homeworld from Separatist forces as they attacked Tipoca City, where they sought to destroy the Republic's cloning facilities. Once the 501st successfully repelled the attack, Echo and Fives were both promoted to the elite rank of ARC trooper. Echo was later tasked with a mission to Lola Sayu, where he and the 501st were to retrieve coordinates to the Nexus Route from the Jedi Master Even Piell, who had been imprisoned on Lola Sayu's Citadel. Despite Piell's death during the mission, it was ultimately a success, but Echo was seemingly killed when trying to secure an escape.
The severely injured Echo was taken prisoner by Separatist forces, where he was sold to the foreman of the Techno Union, Wat Tambor. Echo was kept alive by being turned into a cyborg, albeit at the cost of his consciousness. He became an unwitting pawn for the Separatists during their campaign on Anaxes, led by Admiral Trench. When Rex found traces of Echo's survival, he, accompanied by Clone Force 99 and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, led a mission to rescue Echo on Skako Minor. They succeeded, and, in turn, Echo used his cybernetic capabilities to turn the tide against the Separatists on Anaxes, leading to the Republic's victory. After the mission, Echo decided to join Clone Force 99.
Personality and traits
All clones were built to be loyal to the Republic, and Echo was no exception. He exceedingly attempted to ensure every rule was followed during his time as a cadet and later enjoyed the downtime on the Rishi moon, using it to read and catch up on regulations. From his time as a cadet, his compulsion to repeat orders to his teammates gained him his nicknameâ€”Echoâ€”which stuck with him throughout his career. Although inexperienced at the time of the Rishi moon incident, Echo adapted quickly to battle using both his mental and military training. Echo was commended on numerous occasions for showing bravery, courage, ingenuity, and skill in battle or otherwise during his service to the Republic.
Despite his expectations as a clone, Echo showed resolve when he remained loyal to the Republic even following his Separatist capture, after being left for dead on the Citadel, which included experimentation and forceful use of his mind to aid the Separatist Alliance. Although Crosshair and Anakin Skywalker both believed Echo's willing betrayal was a possibility, taking his seeming abandonment on the Citadel into consideration, Rex did not lose faith in Echo's loyalty, of which he was later vindicated when Echo remained true to the Republic and saved Anaxes.
Echo, as a genetic clone of Jango Fett, was a human male with black hair, brown eyes, and tan skin. Although all normal clones of Jango Fett were physically identical to the bounty hunter, Echo was skinnier than his fellow former Domino Squad teammates, but still stood at the same 1.83 meters in height. Following his Separatist capture, Echo's skin became pale during his time in stasis and his body was outfitted with numerous cybernetic implants-including a socket-arm in place of his right handâ€”but his body became weak and emaciated.
During Echo's time as a cadet, he and the rest of Domino Squad wore a green-colored variation of training armor, which had his cadet designation number-CT-21-0408â€”written in Aurebesh on his upper left leg's armor plating. After his induction into the Grand Army of the Republic, Echo bore the standard white armor that all clone troopers were issued. Echo and his teammates at the Rishi moon were referred to as "shinies" by Captain Rex, due to their new armor being unscathed and for Echo's inexperience with combat. After Rex killed a Rishi eel in defense of Echo and the clone troopers before they took back the Rishi Station, he stamped his hand, covered in the eel's blood, on Echo's armor. Echo carried this stamped handprint on his armor for the rest of his time with the 501st, even after his promotion to the rank of ARC trooper. With his new rank, Echo was issued standard ARC trooper armor and he clad it in blue paint; this armor, along with his helmet, was destroyed when he was nearly killed on Lola Sayu. Following his rescue from Separatist capture, Echo was outfitted with new armor on Anaxes that covered his cybernetic parts and was also clad in blue-the same shade that was once on his ARC trooper armor.
