One of the many things Star Wars: The Clone Wars never gets enough credit for is going behind the mask of the seemingly identical Republic clone troopers to show that they are individual beings with personalities of their own, despite their genetic programming. In fact, the series, which is now approaching the end of its fifth season, has been putting a face on the faceless hordes since its very earliest episodes. That tradition continues Saturday with the series’ 100th episode, “Missing in Action,” which introduces a decorated commando with no memory of his background and intended purpose:

Given the series’ title and its backdrop of galactic warfare, Star Wars: The Clone Wars often focuses on the valiant and tireless clone troopers tasked to defend the Republic from darkness. The vivid personalities of these soldiers often challenge many assumptions about the nature of clones, and has created a roster of individual heroes. This tradition continues in the 100th broadcast episode, “Missing in Action,” with the intriguing addition of Gregor, a Republic clone commando suffering from amnesia who has seemingly forgotten his true nature.

Since its debut in 2008, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has pushed the boundaries of the epic Star Wars saga with high adventure, explosive action, and incredibly detailed animation usually reserved for the big screen. Created and executive produced by George Lucas, the series has continued the story of classic characters like Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, while adding new heroes, villains, rogues and sidekicks to the Star Wars mythos.

The 100th episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars airs Saturday morning.
