Rise of the Empire era
CSM-5539, nicknamed Vultch, was a Clone Trooper Sergeant-Major in command of the 293rd Storm Battalion during the Clone Wars. Leading the battalion with Commander Tav, the two became very close friends. In the first year of the Clone Wars, shortly after the First Battle of Geonosis, Vultch, along with the battalion, accompanied Jedi Generals Kyle Redbreak and Echuu-Shen Jon, along with his Padawan Naat Reath to the volcanic world of Sarapin, where the Separatists had occupied after defeating the Republic forces stationed there. After a heated battle, the 293rd Storm Battalion remained on Sarapin for the remainder of the Clone Wars to defend this vital system, with several other Clone garrisons.
Personality and Traits
- "I'm more centered into pushing the Seps back into where they came from. Until they're blasted into oblivion, the clones and Jedi will never rest. Far out there, millions of my brothers are being killed everyday, and the Jedi ranks are slowly being decreased. If there's no one else to stop the Feds, who's to say that the Republic will survive through this menace?"
Vultch was a focused and determined soldier in the Republic. Advancing through the ranks in the first part of the war, he eventually attained the rank of Sergeant-Major, leading the battalion with Tav. Although Vultch is more used to combat, he is also used to being patient. Vultch is always a man of action, and is ready to get his blaster ready and stop the Separatists in their tracks.
