Description: Grotton was a human male who served as the governor of Desix early in the reign of the Galactic Empire. When assuming his post, he was held hostage by Governor Tawni Ames, who led the planet with the aid of her Separatist holdout. Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody," sniper CT-9904 "Crosshair," and a squad of clone troopers were tasked with rescuing Governor Grotton. After Grotton's rescue, he oversaw the Imperial occupation of the planet.
Captured by Tawni Ames
Grotton was a young human male affiliated with the Galactic Empire after its formation from the Galactic Republic in 19 BBY. Grotton was appointed to the position of governor of Desix, a planet which had aligned itself with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a united breakaway government against the Republic, a democratic union of sovereign star systems. To enforce Imperial authority over Desix, Grotton and six TK troopers were dispatched on a Nu-class attack/transport shuttle to a city to instruct the de facto governor, Tawni Ames, to cede control from the independent government to the Empire. While in the planet's atmosphere, a stormtrooper informed Grotton that they were on final approach. After the shuttle landed, Grotton adjusted his kepi as he stepped out of the ship while being followed by six stormtroopers. They walked to a central building and Grotton looked around, appraising his surroundings. They were approached by Ames who announced her position and told Grotton to state his business. Grotton said that he was there to relieve Ames of her title by order of the Empire. Ames declared that Desix did not fall under Imperial jurisdiction, and she ordered the Imperial to take his forces and leave peacefully. When Grotton refused, Ames summoned several B1-series battle droids to surround Grotton's forces. He then raised his hands in response to Ames pulling a blaster. Ames then proclaimed she had a message for the Empire.
Grotton was held hostage by the Separatist holdout. To quell this disorder, Imperial Vice Admiral Rampart sent Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody," sniper CT-9904 "Crosshair," and a squad of clone troopers to rescue Grotton. Grotton was tied to a chair and guarded by two B1 battle droids. He ordered the droids to release him, though they refused, stating that the governor had them keep a close eye on him. Grotton retorted that he was the legitimate governor of Desix before calling the droids scrap heaps. Ames then entered the room, telling Grotton that he would have his freedom when Desix became free, though Grotton declared that the Empire would not agree to her terms. Ames explained how Count Dooku correctly predicted that the Republic would become something worse, and Grotton claimed that she would lose the war.
The squad of clone troopers were shot down but managed to infiltrate the city and eliminate Ames' battle droids. Cody and Crosshair then entered the Bell tower where they found Ames holding Grotton hostage at gunpoint. Grotton yelled at the clones to do something as he struggled to escape. Cody convinced Ames to release him and end the conflict without bloodshed. After being released, Grotton ordered Cody to execute Ames. Cody hesitated, prompting Grotton to angrily repeat his order. Cody continued to hesitate until Ames was shot by Crosshair. Grotton ordered the clones to put Ames' body in the square as a warning to the people of Desix. He then walked away before being followed by Crosshair. With the rebellion crushed, Grotton oversaw the arrival of more Imperial troopers and the occupation of the city.
Personality and traits
Grotton viewed himself as the legitimate governor of Desix, and he was angered by anyone saying he was not. He could be commanding as shown when he ordered Ames to relinquish her title and ordered Cody to execute her. He was willing to surrender when he knew he was outmatched. He expressed fear when he was surrounded by battle droids and held at gunpoint by Ames.
Grotton wore a gray Imperial military uniform with an Imperial Kepi, two code cylinders, and a rank insignia plaque, which displayed two red squares over two blue squares.
