Description: Republic Commando: Niner
Prefix: RC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Star Wars: Republic Commando Game and Novels

Republic Commandos were uniquely trained to work in groups as one. Niner, the sole survivor of his squad from the Battle of Geonosis, becomes the squad leader of Omega Squad.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

In the page below, items listed in blue are recommended features that will improve the quality of the costume. Items listed in red are intended to further enhance the finished costume.
