The 501st Legion was a clone trooper legion a divison of the Grand Army of the Republic that was lead by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and captain Rex during the Clone Wars, who was later replaced by Commander Appo at the end of the war. The 501st became a Legion of Stormtroopers known as "Vader's Fist" after the rise of the Galactic Empire and continued serving Anakin with his new identity of Darth Vader.

History Edit

The 501st was deployed during the Battle of Christophsis alongside the 212th Attack Battalion. The Legion went to Kamino when they heard that Tipoca City was going to be attacked by General Grievous and successfully defended the Republic Clone facilities. The 501st and Anakin went to Umbara later in the war where Anakin had to leave and put Pong Krell in charge of the troops. They weren't impressed with his tactics but followed his orders. Eventually they arrested General Krell for treason.

A small breakoff of the 501st with orange markings followed Ahsoka Tano into battle against Maul during the Siege of Mandalore including Rex. When Order 66 took place, Darth Vader led the 501st into the Jedi Temple and killed every Jedi inside. On Mandalore the Clones turned on Ahsoka but Rex, who had removed his inhibitor chip, helped Ahsoka escape and they faked their own deaths.

The 501st continued to serve in the Empire's wake and the Clone Troopers were eventually replaced with Stormtroopers.
