"Do we take prisoners?"
"I don't."
―Hevy's last words, responding to a battle droid — (audio)Listen (file info)

CT-26-6958 was a clone trooper who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, the conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. CT-26-6958 earned the nickname of "Hevy," due to being the heavy weapons expert on the Rishi Station, a listening post located on the moon of Rishi, where he and other rookie clone troopers were stationed around 22 BBY. Under the command of Sergeant O'Niner, the group of clones maintained the listening post to warn the Galactic Republic fleet of any Confederate attacks in the Outer Rim and were present during a surprise Confederate attack on the station. BX-series droid commandos took over the Rishi moon base and fortified themselves inside.

Commander Cody and Captain Rex soon arrived at the base for a routine inspection. The clone officers met up with Hevy and the remaining clone troops and organized a plan to attack the droids. Upon taking over the base, Rex ordered the destruction of the listening post, and the clones collected liquid tibanna and explosives. Noticing that the remote detonator would not respond, Hevy offered to stay behind and fix the problem, while the other clones left the base through the ventilation shaft. Hevy was soon attacked by the battle droids and was only able to destroy some of them with his Z-6 rotary blaster cannon. His success came with sacrifice, however, as he opted to manually detonate the explosives, instantly killing himself and destroying the droids and the listening post.

Attack on the moon of Rishi

"This one here is mine!"
"A big gun doesn't make a big man."
―Hevy and Cody, on him picking the Z-6 rotary blaster cannon — (audio)Listen (file info)

A clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett,[1] CT-26-6958[4] was born on the planet Kamino to fight in the Grand Army of the Republic.[1] Around 22 BBY,[2] during the Clone Wars, he was stationed at a listening post located on a moon of the planet Rishi. Under the command of Sergeant O'Niner, CT-26-6958—along with Cutup, Echo, and Fives—maintained the listening post to warn the Galactic Republic of any impending Separatist attacks on Kamino.[3] During his time at the station, CT-26-6958 earned the nickname of "Hevy," due to his expertise in heavy weaponry.[5]

While Hevy and the rookie troopers were on duty in the control room, Sergeant O'Niner entered the room and alerted the clone troopers of an inspection that would soon begin. Unbeknownst to the group of clone troopers, however, Confederate General Grievous had sent BX-series droid commandos in Droch-class boarding ships to attack the listening post. Grievous, along with the Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress, intended to invade Kamino to end the production of the Republic's clone troopers. The Republic listening post on the moon of Rishi had an "all clear signal," which, if turned off, would alert a nearby Republic fleet, so Grievous planned to order his droids to leave the signal untouched.[3]

Meanwhile, a clone trooper alerted O'Niner that a meteor shower was approaching. To protect the base, the clone raised the listening post's shield. Outside the listening post, the meteor shower—which was actually the Droch-class boarding ships used by the commando droids—crashed everywhere around the listening post. The droids soon left their transports and began their attack on the Republic base. In the command center, O'Niner tried to contact clone trooper CT-327—who, unbeknownst to O'Niner, had already been killed by the commando droids—but was not able to reach him. The clone sergeant ordered troopers Droidbait and Nub to search for him; however, the two soon encountered a group of droids near the base's entrance. The battle droids began to fire at the two clone troopers, alerting the nearby O'Niner. The Sergeant ordered Hevy to sound the listening post's alarm, but he sound found that the droids had deactivated the beacon. After three commando droids shot and killed O'Niner, the remaining clone troopers—Hevy, Echo, Fives, and Cutup—evacuated the command center by going through a ventilation shaft, which led them outside the listening post.[3]

Exiting the ventilation shaft, the four troops, who already felt helpless without their commanding sergeant, were further disheartened when a Rishi eel attacked and devoured Cutup, leaving only Hevy, Echo, and Fives to defend themselves. Eventually, the remaining rookie clone troopers noticed the Obex,[6] a Nu-class attack shuttle flown by Commander Cody and Captain Rex. The clone officers had arrived for the inspection of the listening post but were unaware of the droid attack. After meeting the clones for the first time, Rex demanded that the rookies remove their helmets to verify that they were clones. After the three rookie troopers obeyed and removed their protective headgear, a Rishi moon eel appeared and began to attack them. This time, Rex used his DC-17 hand blaster to kill it with one shot to the eye, a feat that impressed the rookies. Confronting the rookie troopers, Rex referred to them as "shinies,"[3] a derogatory term referring to the troopers' spotless armor that had not yet seen action in battle.[6]

Rex, nonetheless, found the group to be unique and took interest in Hevy's confidence, as well as stating that "there was hope for them yet." Both Rex and Cody gave the rookie troops their DC-15S blaster carbines before Rex suggested a plan to retake the listening post. The group of clone troopers hid near the entrance of the base while Rex impersonated commando droid unit 26 by using the droid's decapitated head. The Clone Captain successfully tricked commando droid Units 07, 08, and 09 to open the listening post's main door, allowing the clone troopers to ambush the remainder of the commando droids inside the base. Upon entering the command center, the clones defeated the droid units, including their vibroblade-wielding leader.[3]

Death

"Hevy, get out of there."
"The remote isn't working; I have to detonate it manually."
―Rex, telling Hevy to evacuate the listening post. — (audio)Listen (file info)

Their minor victory was cut short, however, when the clone troopers noticed that General Grievous' fleet had arrived above the moon. Due to the lack of communication from the commando droids, Grievous sent more battle droids to the listening post. The clones, inside the command center of the listening post, were unable to turn off the "all clear" signal because the droids had hot-wired it. Soon, a droid landing craft descended through the atmosphere and landed near the listening post. With the battle droid reinforcements outnumbering the clone troopers, Rex ordered the complete destruction of the base, to the surprise of the rookie troops. After the rookie clone troopers told the Clone Captain that their instruction was to protect the base, Rex dismissed them and ordered them to find anything explosive. Echo offered the use of highly explosive liquid tibanna, stored in plunk droids. While Rex and Echo went to retrieve the specific droids, Cody, Hevy, and Fives grabbed weaponry from the listening post's supply room. With their new supply of weaponry, they opened fire on the invading battle droid forces,[3] buying time for Rex to wire three plunk droids together.[7] Unexpectedly, the remote activator to detonate the tibanna inside the plunk droids did not function properly.[3]

Hevy offered to stay behind and correct the problem, enabling the others to exit the listening post through the ventilation shaft. The clone rookie used his Z-6 rotary blaster cannon—which he had chosen earlier with Cody and Fives—and fired on the invading B1 battle droids. Outside, Cody, Rex, Echo, and Fives noticed that Hevy was still inside the listening post. Rex tried to contact Hevy via comlink, but Hevy told the Clone Captain that he had to detonate the explosives manually. Unwilling to accept Hevy's decision, Rex and the clones ran to rescue the rookie trooper. However, inside the station, more battle droids approached the command center, and Hevy's Z-6 rotary blaster eventually ran out of ammunition. Hevy tossed the disabled weapon at the battle droids before he was injured in the leg by the droids. Upon Hevy's regaining of consciousness, a battle droid questioned whether or not to take Hevy as a prisoner. Replying that he did not take prisoners, Hevy activated the tibanna explosives, killing himself and destroying the listening post along with the droids inside. Outside, the remaining clone troopers witnessed the destruction of the listening post. While they were unsuccessful in rescuing Hevy, the clones soon departed the moon of Rishi, after being picked by a LAAT/i gunship that just arrived.[3] Onboard the Venator-class Star Destroyer Resolute,[7] Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker awarded Echo and Fives a medal for their service and honored Hevy's bravery and sacrifice.[3]

Personality and traits

"You wanted excitement, Hevy."
"Right. Oo-ooh, meteor shower."
―Cutup and Hevy — (audio)Listen (file info)

Despite being a rookie clone trooper, Hevy was regarded as a unique fighter who had an eye for heavy weaponry.[5] He was sarcastic and constantly tried to show his strengths and abilities to the other clone troopers, usually by voicing his opinion. He also challenged the others to arm wrestling matches under the impression it was only to pass the time and constantly claimed that he wanted "to get into the action." Seen as an independent thinker, Hevy was determined to destroy the listening post, which caused the clone to deny Rex's request for him to evacuate the base. Out of the number of rookie clone troopers that were stationed inside the base, they all believed that Hevy's impression with the listening post was negative, as he did not enjoy his time there. Nevertheless, he was willing to sacrifice his own life during the fight inside the post. Hevy sported tattoos on either side of his face, from the back of the neck to the cheeks.[3]

Behind the scenes

"What the hell was that?"
―Hevy exclaimed the word "hell" during the first broadcasting of "Rookies." — (audio)Listen (file info)

Hevy was first revealed in a storyboard sketch shown on StarWars.com and was subsequently featured in "Rookies," the fifth episode in the first season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, which aired on October 24, 2008. Like all clone troopers throughout the series, he was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. In the premiere of "Rookies," Hevy exclaimed the word "hell" once.[3] The word "hell" was removed in later broadcasts of the episode, however.[7] Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Visual Guide Ultimate Battles gave Hevy the clone designation of "CT-26-6958."[4]
