Cut Lawquane: Clone. Farmer. Family Man. And Mandalorians!
“The Deserter” (S210)
While searching for General Grievous on Saleucami, Rex meets a clone deserter.
- We arrive on the surface of Saleucami, mentioned but not seen in “Grievous Intrigue” (S209).
- This episode introduces Hardcase, Jesse, and Kix, clone troopers serving under Captain Rex in the 501st. They will have more prominent roles later in the series.
- Cut Lawquane is just another example of a clone trooper expressing individuality. We first saw it in Season One with Slick being a traitor fighting for freedom for the clones.
- As an expression of his own individuality, Captain Rex ultimately decides not to turn in Cut as a deserter.
- Cut and Rex play dejarik, the holographic chess game seen in A New Hope.
