A Captains guard

He is more important than any of us. Everyone knows that. From the oldest veterans to the pure innocent Shinnie fresh from Kamino. Part of my job is to protect him, at any cost. I will lay down my life for Captain Rex!


1. After Umbara

It’s funny how life suddenly can end right? One moment you are sitting down and trying to save a brother. The next you get hit by a grenade. That was happen to me. You might know me. Name is Jesse. A soldier from 501st. Rex and Appos right hand. I was the one there taught Echo and Fives. Watched out for Tup and Dogma. The defender of the Medics. Tends to put me in the line of fire.


The general is dead, shoot by Dogma. We are cleaning up the mess and looking after the wounded. Appo is making sure the base is ours and I stand a few foots behind Rex. We are all beyond tired. Fives is looking after Tup and Dogma. The men of 212th is been looked over by Coric and Kix. My captain gives an almost silent sigh. A step forward and I place a hand on the small of his back. He leans into the touch. “What will happen now, Jesse?” I’m don’t know what to say besides the only thing I can. “I don’t know honestly sir. But we gonna make it. We always do.” He looks at me over his shoulder. “You have always been a good friend.” I’m more than a friend. Part of my job is to make sure you survive every battle. The roar of ships can be heard. Our gazes go to the sky. “Looks like the Commanders was closer than we thought.” His words are hushed. When he begins to move forward I follow. 41st, 212th, 104th and 327th. General Kenobi and Commander Cody is the first there reach us. “Captain Rex. Is general Krell around?” Rex looks down and I stand up to meet the looks of Bly, Gree and Wolffe. “There..was problems.” My words are strong and gaze locked. I might be one the few there dares to speak against the older Commanders. But right now, my captain needs me to lead the word. “What problems lieutenant?” General Secura steps forward. “We were sent out to attack the enemy, but it was the 212th.” Cody tenses and looks around. “They are being looked over by Kix and Coric.” “Krell is missing?” This time it’s the general of 41st. “No sir. He was shoot by Dogma.” “Very well. We will handle it from here.” General Kenobi dismiss us. I lend a shoulder to Rex. He takes it and together we make it to the barracks. The men inside are jumpy and seeks safety in numbers. They look up when we enter. “The support has arrived. The captain needs rest, so anything to report seek out the Commanders.” My voice is clear as I lead Rex to his room. Fives appears. “Get Kix and Coric. Tell them it is our captain.” The words are a mumble and with a sharp nod he is gone.

The captains room is not big, but has it on fresher and a small desk, along with the bunk. Rex is more dead than alive. “Hey. Don’t fall asleep on me now. Kix and Coric needs to look you over.” I step in front of him and rest my hands on his waist. He leans forward and I take all his weight now. “All those we lost. Hardcase, Long Gun. Waxer.” His arms sneak up and around. He clings to me. “Don’t leave me, Jesse. I need your support.” His words cut right through my heart “I will never leave you, sir.” I begin to strip him of his armor. He ends standing just in his blacks. Places him on the bunk and strip myself of my armor. “Come on, Rex. Let’s get you cleaned.” He follows me without a single word. A hand turns on the water and the other holds onto Rexs arm. He strips and go under the water spray. I leave him and goes into the mainroom again. Sits down and begins to clean our armor. A hiss from door warns me and one Rexs guns goes up. “Easy brother.” Kix enters with so many other brothers. Fives goes to my side and takes Rexs kama to clean. “I remember that I only asked for Kix and Coric.” “Watch it, Jesse. Rex is a captain and he has a report to make.” Bly crosses the line. I stand up. There is a difference between him and me. I’m broader build and has more muscle on the chest, bag and arms. “The captain needs to recover.” My feet bring me forward to I stand a few inches from Bly.

“Jesse?” Rexs voice comes from the doorway to the fresher. Now clean, but still pale. “Rex.” He comes over, only covered in a towel. “They will have the report, but I need you and Fives here. Bring Dogma and Tup in here.” Appo nods and goes out to find the youngest members of Torrent Company. Kix leaves to find Coric and supplies. Rex goes over to the chest under his bunk and pulls out a pair shorts. I stand sentinel at his side. Two members of the Wolfpack, Boost and Sinker, enters. “You wanna ask the captain questions? “ Sinker looks and his leader and everyone looks at him. “Why, Sinker?” “General Skywalker is on his way back here. Along with the Rancor-squad.” Many of the Commanders men mumbles and looks at each other. Rancor-squad. The oldest of the oldest. Overlooked the training from the start of the war.  Our defense and protectors. “Seems the general value your captain, lieutenant.” Fives moves behind me and talks in low volumes with Rex. Kix and Coric enters. Coric, being the senior medic sends the Commanders a look there could freeze a fire. “Jesse, how is he?” My batchbrother, Kix, walks over and begins to look the captain over. “Could have been worse, but no good either.” Tup and Dogma sneaks in, or try to. They hurry over and behind me. “Jesse. I’m sorry for what happened to Hardcase.” Cody tries to break the ice and my eyes wanders over to the Field Marshall Commander, the one clad in 212th gold. The other is Bly, but he is not saying anything right now. “And we are sorry about Waxer. He was a good vode.” “Jesse. You know Rex stands to a court material?” “Too bad. Over my dead body.” “Haven’t you been at the firing squad just a few days ago?” Wolffe folds his arms. “Yes. And I will do it again. I think I speak for the entire 501st on that point.” Rex comes up at my right side and our arms brushes. “Jesse has been a dedicated support. Always been at my side and looked after me. Without his, Fives and Hardcases sacrifice we will never have made it.” “Very well. I expect the report home at Corucsant.” Bly turns around and walks out. The other Commanders looks at each other and then follows. “Take care, Rex. You will soon be back at the Resolute.” General Kenobi sends me and meaningful gaze. Rex walks back to the bunk and drops down. Dead to the world. “Shh, he finally sleeps.” Fives leads to two youngest out. “Nothing major injure, but he will need our full help. Even if he will admit or not.” “We will take care of him. He always watches out for us.” We walk out and the door closes after us.


The feeling of being back at Resolute can described as comforting. Knowing that we are home and the admiral will make sure we get home, safe and sound. Everyone is relaxing and doing what they can to act normal. That means playing Sabaac, pranking the veterans or train. Appo and me are stalking the ship to make sure everyone is alright after this mission. I remember Rexs words before I left his quarters; “Don’t blame the general. He didn’t know this will happen.” I know he is right, but a little part of wants to yell at general Skywalker for leaving us with that..thing.” My boots sounds loud in the silent corridors. I know where I’m heading and it pains me. Dogma is under lock up and even his batchbrother isn’t allowed to see him. Fives tried, but only those there holds a rank right under Rex is allowed. I promised them so…The guards in the brigs is look up when I enter. “Sir.” The sergeant gives me a salute and I nods. “Why are you here?” He follows a few steps behind. “Looking for young Dogma.” “Sir, about that…” The cell there should have hold Dogma is empty. My eyes can’t believe what I am seeing and a sharp turn. “Where is Dogma!?”
