Chapter 2 - The Dark Side[edit | edit source]

Main Article: The Dark Side

Before the Battle of Naboo, The Sith were thought to have been extinct for nearly a millennia, when in reality they had been living in shadows, plotting their revenge against The Jedi and The Galactic Republic that had nearly destroyed their Order so long ago. A thousand years earlier, forces of light were pitted against the forces of darkness in the New Sith War that culminated on the planet of Ruusan. Rather than admit defeat, the vengeful Sith used their dark arts to destroy themselves and take many of The Jedi with them. There was one survivor from the conflict; a Sith Lord by the name of Darth Bane. It was he who realized that The Sith would never succeed, let alone survive, if they were constantly squabbling amongst themselves for power. Armed with this insight, he created the Rule of Two, which stated that at any given time there could only be two Sith- a Master and an Apprentice.

The Sith grew in power in this manner for nearly a thousand years. Through cold manipulation the latest master of the Sith tradition, Darth Sidious, orchestrated a scheme of galactic proportions to exact his vengeance on The Jedi on behalf of The Sith. When his plan was set in motion, it brought about the creation of a Separatist movement that later evolved into The Confederacy of Independent Systems and subsequently sparked the conflict that was the Clone Wars. Over the course of these events, The Sith had managed to sway a great many followers to their cause, including several Jedi to serve as assassins, commanders and spies for the Separatist forces. The following is a chronicling of The Sith and those who would do their bidding.

Chapter 3 - Species[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Species

The Galactic Republic was made up of tens of thousands of worlds inhabited by thousands of sentient species. During the Clone Wars, these sentient beings were divided between the loyalist forces of the Grand Army of the Republic, and the traitorous Confederacy of Independent Systems. The following are some of the alien species known to the galaxy during the Clone Wars.

Chapter 4 - Equipment[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Equipment

The galaxy has seen the development of a vast array of devices over the millennia. Countless wars have been waged on every scale and an immeasurable amount of lives have been lost. Over the years, new devices have been created to be more effective on the battlefield. Some focus on efficiency and precision, or provide aid to those on the battlefield. Other creations aim to be more destructive than anything the galaxy has ever seen. The Clone Wars were no exception.

Research and development teams worked tirelessly on both sides to create a greater cache of weaponry and ingenious equipment in order to win the war. The Confederacy of Independent Systems uses its resources to manufacture everything from blasters to biochemical weapons. The Galactic Republic works equally hard to outdo their adversaries. The two armies create weapons of unspeakable devastation and devices that would be used in a variety of fields for years to come.

Chapter 5 - The Fringe[edit | edit source]

The Clone Wars were waged by more than just the warriors who fought for principles and politics of the Republic or Separatists. Many missions were carried out by bounty hunters and mercenaries, skilled sentient beings with colorful backgrounds and unique abilities that were preferable to Droids or Clones for many types of missions. The following characters are combatants who worked for the highest bidder, either as mercenaries or bounty hunters.

Criminals[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Criminals

Crime has been a part of galactic life since the earliest hints of civilized society, and the time of the Clone Wars is no different. The Republic is so focused on the external threat of the Separatists and internal corruption that criminals of all types are able to flourish during the war. Wars mean blockades, giving desperate need and top credits to smugglers of contraband and luxury goods. Innocent citizens turn to spice to escape the horrors of war. Local gangsters grow more brazen in their scams and protection rackets. The Clone Wars represent a golden era for criminals throughout the galaxy, one brought to a quick demise when The Galactic Empire seizes control.

Force Users[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Force Users

During the galaxy-raging conflict known as the Clone Wars, both the Republic and Confederacy were defined by their Force-wielding leadership. The Republic trusted The Jedi Order to lead their clone forces in the field of battle, while the Confederacy relied on Dooku’s leadership and guidance, as well as a number of dark Force-users for more specialized missions. However, there are a number of Force sensitives in the galaxy that were neither in Dooku’s thrall, nor under the purview of the Jedi Council. These Adepts nonetheless played pivotal roles in many of the battles of the Clone Wars, from unimportant backwater worlds like Haruun Kal, to Core Worlds like Coruscant.

Locals[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Locals

While the Clone Wars produced heroes on either side of every battlefield across the galaxy, most of those affected were caught in the middle. This chapter details a number of individuals who have more loyalty to their companies or fields than to either faction.

Chapter 6 - The Jedi[edit | edit source]

Affiliation Page: The Jedi

The Jedi Order has existed in parallel to The Galactic Republic for over twenty-five thousand years. They have acted as guardians of peace throughout the galaxy, settling disputes and providing the kind of sage advice that can only be given through pure benevolence and deep understanding of the Force.

During the restructuring of The Galactic Republic following the New Sith War a thousand years ago, The Jedi Order willingly placed itself under the appointment to the office of the Supreme Chancellor. By the request of the leader of the galactic government, The Jedi served as ambassadors, diplomats and intermediaries to the various governing bodies of the Republic and its allies.

With the onset of the Clone Wars, the Supreme Chancellor appointed The Jedi to act as generals and commanders to the Grand Army of the Republic. During this sinister time many Jedi, from Master to Padawan, fought and lost their lives. The following is a chronicling of some of the most notable participants.

The Jedi Council[edit | edit source]

Main Article: The Jedi Council

During the Clone Wars, The Jedi Council was forced to take on the roles of military commanders and strategists, serving under the Senate and the Supreme Chancellor.

These are the members of The Jedi Council who fought during the Clone Wars.

Jedi Padawans[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Jedi Padawans

Padawan Learners, like their masters, served as military leaders during the Clone Wars. These young Jedi often functioned as commanders, leading clone units ranging from squads to regiments. Normally Padawans would serve under their masters, but as the war went on, more and more Padawans would be transferred to new commands that needed their expertise, or when their masters perished in battle. These are the Jedi Padawans who offered their Lightsabers in service of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Grand Army of the Republic (Part 2)[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Grand Army of the Republic (Part 2)

Hand selected by Jango Fett, the Cuy’val Dar were a collection of seventy-five Mandalorians warriors and twenty-five other deadly warriors with expert skills in over a dozen specialties. Each Cuy’val Dar training sergeant was specifically brought in to train over two dozen four-man commando squads. Many took on additional duties, training specialized skills to other trainers’ squads, or even giving specialized skills to ARC Troopers, Clone Commandos, and other specialized troopers Not all of the Cuy’val Dar got along, oftening leading to infighting between different cliques. After the Battle of Geonosis, most of these warriors returned to a mercenary lifestyle, eager to leave rain-soaked Kamino. While some of those individuals fought for the Confederacy against the very troops they trained, a handful of the Cuy’val Dar remained with their trainees acting as special advisers for the Republic’s Special Operations Brigade.

Clone Vehicle Crews[edit | edit source]

Clones[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Clones

The backbone of the Grand Army of the Republic, Clone Troopers are the product of a secret decade-long Kaminoan cloning project. Clone Troopers, created from the DNA of bounty hunter Jango Fett, represented the Republic on the battlefields of the Clone Wars. Suborned to The Jedi Order and the Republic Senate, Clones knew nothing but war, through either participation or preparation. At the end of the galaxy-wide conflict, the Clone Army murdered most of the Jedi leadership that had fought alongside them throughout countless battles, siding with former Chancellor Palpatine and his Galactic Empire.

Droids[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Droids

For millennia, Droids have had a role in the growth and shaping of the galaxy. They have made life habitable or profitable in environments that would otherwise prove too hostile for organic life forms. On many worlds, they have helped to create a utopia where living beings never need toil. They provide a trusted sidekick for any being in the galaxy who might want one: scientists; pilots; medics; soldiers; merchants; and more.

By the time of the Clone Wars, Droids had become as ubiquitous as to go unnoticed by most passers-by. Droids had completely ceased to be a curiosity and were looked at with no more regard than one gave a caf-dispenser. However, Droids played a critical role in the Clone Wars, making up the vast legions of the Confederate Army and provided logistical support for the forces of the Republic. The Clone Wars were a pivotal moment in Droid history which resulted in decades of oppression that reached its low point during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion half a century later.
