Day 1 → All-time favorite character in Star Wars → Commander Cody
This was really REALLY hard to choose because I love so many characters throughout the ‘verses. It was so hard to choose between Cody, Fi, Sev, Fixer, Walon Vau, and Kal’buir.
Cody is really just such a fantastic character. He’s incredibly uptight and by the book but at the same time he’s willing to adapt to keep his men safe.
I’ve seen Cody portrayed so many different ways in every form, comics, books, shows, the movies, and I have to say Clone Wars Cody is just the best.
He’s still very uptight and serious but, as we get to see in Rookies, when it’s just him and his men he’s considerably more easy-going, when they’re not getting shot at.
I was first introduced to Cody, just like most people, through Revenge of the Sith and to be honest I didn’t give his character much thought. I think he has like 4 minutes of screen time all together… But when Rookies came along, oh boy let me tell you. My love for Cody went through the roof.
I love all of the little quirks that the animators and Dee Baker have given him. I don’t know if anyone else pays this much attention to his character or if I’m just reading too much into it but he almost has to check himself at times. Like he’ll get comfortable with some of his men and then a general will come up and he’ll have a brief second where it almost seems like he has to tell himself that he can’t joke with the generals.
So yeah, Cody is pretty much the greatest ever.
