OC- Null-EP00 "Zero" ARC Troop by Jarein OC- Null-EP00 "Zero" ARC Troop by Jarein
I began reading this very cool and unique crossover fanfic of Naruto and the Star Wars universe circa-Prequel Trilogy where the Clone Troopers weren’t created using Jango Fett's genetic frame, but rather Canderous Ordo's – stolen by Jango Fett to use at the Kamino facilities.


So I began wondering, if in the canon prequel trilogies, the Kaminoans may have attempted to use other Mandalorian gene candidates (supplied by Fett) before settling on Fett himself.

With that cool though in mind, I decided to create what I believe might have been the first full-grown and trained Trooper Prototype that wasn’t discarded prior to the Fett-cloned Nulls – sort of a way to test and see if clone troopers were even worth trying to put into real production.

Thus my Alternate Universe concept of Null-EP-00 "Zero", the FIRST fully developed experimental clone trooper made from the genetic material of Mandalore the Preserver aka. Canderous Ordo.

I based a lot of the armor design off of Captain Fordo, the badass ARC from the original Clone Wars animated-shorts, compiling standard Phase I ARC-trooper armor with bits from Standard Phase II armor. I also took minor bits from Katarn-class commando armor and some aspects of standard Mandalore armor as well to really make the armor a truly unique thing, befitting the grandfather of the the clone army.

In terms of backstory, I intended him to be a free-thinking clone, like all Null-class troops, that was technically “off-the-books” for usage in espionage by the Kaminoans privately to report any anomalous behaviors exhibited by the clones, Jedi or even the Republic assigned commanders. Since he was an Ordo-clone, he wouldnt be bound by any kind of bloodline-loyalty among the Fett-clones and would be less inhibited from his deceptive purposes as an uber-spy. His rank is Captain, as shown by his insignia and his crimson armor adornments.

If you've read this whole thing, god bless you. You truly had the patience to give a damn lol.

I would actually like to see him dual wielding his pistols. That would look. AWESOME.
