104th Battalion - Wolfpack

Post by Geoff Reid on Sun Mar 17, 2013 1:57 am

This post of Commander Wolffe & his Wolfpack are not really classed as a custom job, but as I found a striking similarity between two characters & military unit's on two different TV program's I thought it would be worth a mention.



The Wolfpack was a clone trooper squad in the Grand Army of the Republic's 104th Battalion that served under Jedi General Plo Koon and Clone Commander Wolffe during the Clone Wars.

The Wolfpack's members included Commander Wolffe, Sergeant Sinker and trooper Boost. Following the attack on the Venator-class Star Destroyer Triumphant by the Malevolence in the Abregado system, Koon, Wolffe, Sinker, and Boost were trapped in an escape pod and fought off battle droids searching the wreckage for surviving clones. They were saved by General Anakin Skywalker and Commander Ahsoka Tano.

Due to the loss of so many members at the Battle of Abregado, Wolffe and the other members of the Wolfpack, changed the colour of their armour from a rusty red, to a dark grey blue to honour their fallen brothers with a melancholy colour. The Wolfpack also changed their symbol to more match the markings on Wolffe's helmet.





Nickname: Wolffe
Rank: Clone Commander
Serial No: CC-3636
Homeworld: Kamino
Species: Human Clone
Gender: Male
Height: 1.83m
Hair Colour: Black
Eye Colour: Brown (Right Eye Prosthetic)

A Strange Coincidence
As I was watching an episode of Sharpe’s Rifles, a British TV Series set in the Napoleonic Wars, a certain French Army Unit caught my eye; they were called “Wolf Brigade” lead by Brigadier-General Guy Loup, the striking similarity between The Clone Wars “Wolfpack” and “Wolf Brigade” were uncanny. They both wore grey colours and displayed wolf like symbols on their uniforms and as for both leader’s of these units, Commander Wolffe CC-3636 and Brigadier-General Guy Loup have very similar facial characteristics, both with battle scars and missing eyes, plus Loup in French means Wolf. I wonder if the French “Wolf Brigade” was an inspiration for Clones Wars “Wolfpack”

A funny comparison, but again, strangely similar...
