New Republic era


Grodin Tierce was a Human male who served as a Royal Guard. During the Thrawn Crisis, he was cloned by the Grand Admiral as part of a new project to create super-commandos. He died shortly after. His clone was later involved in a campaign to bring down the New Republic, before being killed in 19 ABY.



As with all Royal Guards, Tierce began his military career as a Stormtrooper. Under the designation TR-889, Tierce ostensibly proved himself an exceptional soldier and was chosen for training as a Royal Guard on Yinchorr.

In 4 ABY, Tierce was embedded in a Stormtrooper unit on Magagran battling a rebel cell. The periodic rotation of Royal Guards back into the Stormtrooper Corps proved vital to Tierce when a large number of Royal Guards perished in the destruction of the second Death Star.

At some point after the death of Palpatine, Tierce came to serve as a Stormtrooper officer under Grand Admiral Thrawn aboard the Star Destroyer Chimaera. Having impressed Thrawn with his martial skill and physical prowess, Thrawn chose Tierce to act as a template for a new type of clone two months before the Battle of Bilbringi in 9 ABY. Tierce felt responsible for Thrawn's death. He placed most of his troops near the hangars of the Chimaera, thinking if someone tried to kill Thrawn he would need to escape using a ship. He did not think about placing any troopers near Thrawn in order to protect him. Tierce died on Generis soon after.

Behind the scenes

According to the Databank entry for Rukh, after he assassinated Thrawn, Tierce killed the Noghri. However, in Vision of the Future, Tierce is said to have died during the assault on Generis that occurred prior to Thrawn's death. It was possibly his clone that lead the squad.
