CT-7567 (nicknamed "Rex") is a major character in the epic space opera franchise Star Wars. He is a supporting protagonist in the 2008 animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the tritagonist of the subsequent 2008-2020 animated series of the same name. He also appears as a supporting protagonist in the 2014-2018 animated series Star Wars Rebels. He is one of the few clones who managed to remove their inhibitor chip, allowing him to disobey Order 66 and remain an important ally to the heroes.
Like all the other clones, he is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who also voices Perry the Platypus in Phineas and Ferb, Appa and Momo in Avatar the Last Airbender, Naga in The Legend of Korra, and Lion in Steven Univerese.
He was a clone captain of the Clone Wars, under the command of Anakin Skywalker. After Jango Fett created an army of his own clones, Rex was one of the billions who served during the Clone Wars, participating in an uncountable amount of extremely important battles, training and motivating several rookies who later became the most skilled soldiers in all of the ranks, and became a favorite among Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker, next to Commander Cody and Appo.
Rex played an important part in battles such as Christophsis, Teth, Gwori, Mon Gazza, Quen, Maridun, Bothawui, Orto Plutonia, Naboo, Ryloth, Saleucami, Genonosis, Malastare, Mon Calamari, Umbara, and Kiros.
As all of the clones were ordered to obey Chancellor Palpatine no matter what, when Order 66 (a command to execute Jedi) arrived, Rex desperately tried to fight it off but couldn't resist his inhibitor chip and attempted to kill his good friend Ahsoka Tano along with his troops. However, Tano managed to remove his chip and the two escaped Order 66 and then faked their deaths. Rex later found the two fellow clones Wolffe and Gregor and the three then lived on a modified AT-TE on Seelos for the next 14 years.
Eventually, the three clones were found by the Spectres, who was part of the rebellion against the Empire, led by Ahsoka Tano, which included Kanan Jarrus, Ezra, Sabine, Zeb Hera. Rex now chronology 54 years old decided to join the rebellion against the Empire after a battle against them on Seelos with the Spectres while Wolffe and Gregor stayed in retirement on Seelos after the AT-TE was destroyed by the Imperials while they took an AT-AT as their new home.
Kanan initially did not trust Rex as he had watched his master getting gunned down by clones, but after Seelos, their relationship began to heal, though their relationship was strained still. However, after a mission in which Rex and Kanan were to disguise as Stormtroopers to save the Rebels' leaders, Rex was captured by the Imperials but Kanan had gone back to save him showing that Kanan cared about Rex, He would then salute Rex as a sign of newly gained respect for the clone who returned the sentiment. After 15 years of not seeing her, the two embraced and said they were both glad each other was still alive when Rex met Ahsoka. As of the season, 2 finale for Rebels' Rex makes it out of the Sith temple alive with the rest of the Spectres, while Ahsoka is left behind with Vader.
It is currently unknown if Rex knows Vader's true identity of being his former Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. Throughout Season 2 of Rebels, Rex has been shown to hate Stormtroopers because he sees them as being inferior to the clone troopers due to the Stormtroopers being enlisted volunteers and clumsy, unlike the clone troopers, Commander Cody would also share these views after becoming a drilling instructor for Stormtroopers on Kamino even stating he'd trade an entire battalion of Stormtroopers for one original clone trooper also Rex described their armor as being "junk" compared to what he wore in the Clone Wars.
Later on, Rex fought in the early days of the rebellion against the Empire after encountering Ezra Bridger and the Spectres, eventually bring promoted to the tank of Commander. He survived the Battle of Endor that resulted in the destruction of the Empire and redemption of Rex's general, Anakin Skywalker.

- For a time fans speculated that Rex was the old commando briefly seen at the shield generator bunker in Return of the Jedi. This was due to the similar appearance of Rex and the old man. Rebels producer Dave Filoni fueled the speculation by stating that it was possible the old man was Rex but later decided that the old man who appeared on film was a separate character named Nik Sant.
