1. Captain Rex

CT-7567, better known as Captain Rex, was a clone trooper captain who led the 501st Legion during the Clone Wars. Like all Clones, Rex was born and trained on Kamino, and entered into the service of the Republic Army. Rex earned the respect of his Jedi Generals rather quickly, and was a favorite go-tp of Anakin Skywalker.

What set Rex apart from the other Clones, and really this goes for most of the 501st, was the close bonds of brotherhood and friendship that he and the others shared with each other. Because of their bond and ability to work so well together, Rex and another Clone commander, Cody, often went of joint assignments with Anakin and Obi-Wan.

Rex and the rest of the 501st go down as some of the better developed characters on Clone Wars, and if you’ve been paying attention to the trailer for Season 2 of Rebels, those old veterans of the 501st make a comeback. It’s going to be exciting to see our old friends, once again.
