When the clones made their entrance into the Star Wars saga I never would have imagined that they would make as big of an impact as they have. Thanks to the clone wars we have gotten to know several of the clones. My favorite of all of them is Commander Cody with a close second being Hevy from Domino Squad.
Commander Cody to me was always just a true loyal friend. He was a free thinking clone which I noticed right away. He was able to make decisions when he needed to and not just take orders. He was a big fan of strategy in battle and he would get down and dirty if he needed to. In the movies we had to watch him execute Order 66 which seemed completely out of his character for me, which is why it broke my heart so much.
The development that he has gotten so far in the Clone Wars cartoon has been phenomenal. They have really shown the relationships between Cody & Obi Wan as well as between Cody & Rex. One of my favorite episodes was the all clone episode in season 1 called “Rookies”. This particular episode introduced one of my favorite nicknames for the rookie clones “Shinies”.
