One of the most impressive things about Star Wars is that, outside of the films, there is an entire legion of fascinating characters who have almost never appeared in live action. One great example of this is Captain Rex, the clone commander who served in the Clone Wars and eventually joined the Rebellion against the Empire. Rex is a hugely important character in Star Wars canon, even though he has a pretty meager presence in the live-action saga.
Die-hard Rex fans know the character pretty well, but there are things about him that even they may be unaware of. Rex was a clone trooper, but he never became a stormtrooper, and that is just one of the many fascinating facts about his long story through the Republic and Imperial eras. He is an important figure in the history of the Star Wars era, even if he only makes a very brief appearance in the movies. Be sure to vote up the most interesting things you learn about Rex.
