c. 32 BBY
"This... it's... bigger than any of us. Or anything... I could've imagined. All I ever meant to... I only only wanted to do my duty."
"Brother... Fives! Stay with me Fives, Fives!"
"The mission... the nightmares... they're... finally... over.""
- ―Fives' last words as he dies as a fugitive in the hands of Captain Rex, telling him about the secret conspiracy to destroy the Jedi.[src]
Fives, also known as ARC-5555, CT-27-5555, or simply CT-5555 was a clone trooper who served in the 501st Legion under Captain Rex and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. He was a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett and was born on the planet Kamino. Originally, he was part of a failing training squad. After receiving some guidance knowledge from Jedi master Shaak Ti, he helped the squad succeed.
While serving as a "Shinie", or rookie on the Rishi Moon, he fought for the first time and gained essential battle experience. He was later promoted to the rank of ARC trooper by Commander Cody, and shared a strong brotherly bond with Echo, Captain Rex, and Tup. He received the nickname "Fives" due to the many fives in his designation number.
Armor and EquipmentEdit
Fives initially wore Phase I armor, which was spotless due to him being a shinie. After the Rishi Moon battle, his armor received a few scuffs, so it looked more worn.
Since Fives was promoted into the 501st, he had the blue markings of his unit. On his thigh and shoulder plate it read "Hevy" in Aurebesh and had an image of a Z-6 rotary blaster cannon.
When Fives became an ARC trooper, he received a kama and a pauldron, signifying his rank. He had an antennas and rangefinder on his helmet with a Rishi eel emblem decorating it, to honor his fallen brother, Cutup. Originally, he had an experimental Phase II helmet, but this was replaced by a regular Phase II helmet once it was issued out.
Fives had blue stripes on his pauldron and leg armor and had extra magazine pouches hanging from his white utility belt. He was given extra plating for his shin and torso armor. He had a survival backpack which attached to his backplate.
Weapons and GearEdit
During training and numerous other occasions, Fives preferred the DC-15A blaster rifle. However, he was also skilled with the DC-15S blaster carbine, which he often used. After becoming an ARC trooper, Fives used twin DC-17 hand blasters like Captain Rex, though he still used other blasters at various times. If a mission required it, he would carry thermal detonators, charges, and EMP grenades.
Fives would use electrobinoculars to see at a further distance. Also, when in space, he used breath mask survival gear to help him breathe.
