Republic Commando Gregor Story Speculation

The introduction of a new clone character is always welcome with this fan, so I am very exciting to see Republic Commando Gregor.

From the new Season Five trailer that we have seen I think we can begin to piece together what the story may be.

We know R2-D2 and a group of  four other droids are being asked by Mace Windu to board a Separatist Dreadnought and steal an encryption module.  Perhaps the Droids need a human/alien assistance in either getting to the dreadnought or perhaps after recovering the encryption module they need help extracting.

Any chance we get to include an Republic Commando into TCW is awesome, because they are like the Navy Seals of the Star Wars galaxy, if you where going to take out the Bin Laden of the Star Wars galaxy, you would send in the RCs.

It also appears that R2-D2 is the droid that is scanning Gregor's arm and revealing despite a heavy beard his true identity.  Now whether Gregor is a deserter, an undercover agent, or a Republic Commando that suffered some sort of amnesia and doesn't remember who he is is another matter.

It certainly seems that given the dialogue included in the trailer that he is either a deserter or someone suffering from memory loss.

A male character says in the trailer, "You are a clone and a soldier in the Republic army....Our mission depends on it."

Presumably their is a large chunk of dialogue missing where the character speaking convinces Gregor of who he is.  I am thinking a bit like Steven Seagal in Hard to Kill.

If you look at the holo-file that R2 plays for Gregor their is some Aurebesh present. For the unitiated Aurebesh is the Star Wars universe's alphabet.  Jinkies a clue!

In the lower corner of the screen there is one line of blue writing, on line of red writing, and then two lines of blue writing.  I am unable to decipher what the red writing characters are but translating the blue writing the file says,
"Status
???
Battle of Serrish"
I think it is safe to presume the missing letters are something to the effect of KIA or killed in action.  I think we are dealing with a RC who was believed to have died at the Battle of Serrish.  According to Wookieepedia their is no record of a "Serrish," so it looks like we are dealing with a battle never before mentioned in the series or in the EU.

On the top right of the screen the info box contains Gregor's name on the top line and presumably his operating number and vital statistics below that. The writing below his name is just to difficult to make out to attempt to translate.

Let's look at the Gregor shots in rough sequential order:

Gregor, this is your life...

Damn I'm handsome...

This seems familiar....

I remember...

It's like riding a hoverbike...

I should have washed the buy'ce first...

My face is back lit !

I LOVE KILLING CLANKERS!

  3. I believe I know who "Gregor" is... I think he might be Cut Laquane from Season 2 of the Clone Wars. :D

    1. ARC Commander X-ray here. Sorry, friend, that isn't Cut. He's a completely new trooper who appears on an unknown planet. In Episode 10, R2-D2 and a group of other droids are ordered to steal the module from the enemy ship. In the next episode, they are heading home when their shuttle is damaged. They crash on an unknown planet and wander around for most of the episode, finally finding a town at the end of the episode. In episode 12, which airs soon, they apparently meet Gregor, inform of who he really is, and ask for help getting past the battle droids so they can steal a ship. We'll see soon. X-ray out.

    2. ARC Commander X-ray back again. I took a bullet wound several years ago and it sometimes hampers my sight. However, if there are three letters in red, it's likely they say either KIA or MIA. Because they're in red, I think they more likely say KIA because red has been the color of death since death came into the world.
