ARC-8033, nicknamed “Flash”, was a Human ARC trooper captain who lived during the final years of the Galactic Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. As the leader of the four man commando team Saber Squad he often took part in missions far behind enemy lines or ahead of a larger Republic force during the Clone Wars. A year into the war he and his squad were placed under command of Jedi general Vhiran Ashukahwa and would remain so for the rest of the war. After the war, Flash and two of his fellow squad members were stationed at an Imperial garisson on Nar Shaddaa, where he was unexpectedly reunited with Ashukahwa. Upon encountering Vhiran, he refused to follow Order 66, reaffirming his loyalty to the Jedi. Along with his squad mates, he instead decided to join up with his general, hide and protect him, and help him with the preparations for resistance against the Empire.
