Character Profile: Blackout

Profile Blackout

ARC-8339, nicknamed “Blackout”, was a Human ARC trooper lieutenant who lived during the final years of the Galactic Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. Blackout was the electronics specialist and slicer of clone commando team Saber Squad, mainly responsible for infiltrating enemy computer systems to disrupt them or to extract intelligence. A year into the Clone Wars, he and his squadmates were placed under the command of Jedi general Vhiran Ashukahwa and would remain so for the rest of the war. After the war came to an end, he was stationed on Nar Shaddaa with two other Saber Squad members to oversee the construction of an Imperial garrison. During this time, he was reunited with his old general. Blackout, like his squadmates, refused to execute Order 66 out of loyalty to Ashukahwa and helped escort Vhiran and his fellow Jedi to Dantooine. When secret communications with his allies were intercepted by the Empire, Blackout was forced to flee Nar Shaddaa and sought refuge on Kamino. There he teamed up with the rebellious Kaminoans to create a new clone army to aid in the upcoming fight against the Empire.

Powers and Abilities
Like his squadmates, Blackout received both standard clone trooper and ARC trooper training on Kamino. While a strong soldier in his own right and more than capable of holding his own in a fight, he lacked the physical capabilities the others possessed. However, his mental skills more than made up for this and during his training he showed a great aptitude in the use of computers, droids and other electronic devices. Capable of quickly assembling and disassembling them, as well as discerning their inner workings and finding and exploiting weaknesses, his place as the squad’s slicer and electronics specialist was a given.

Blackout tended to carry very little in the way of weaponry, wielding just an ion stunner pistol for taking out electronic targets, but also capable of stunning biological targets, and a couple of anti-electronic explosives, such as ion and V-6 haywire grenades. He chose most of his field equipment, however, for aiding in and amplifying his skills and never went on a mission without at least his scramble keys, computer spikes and datapads.


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
