Lieutenant CT-5597, nicknamed "Jesse", was a recurring character in the 2008-2020 animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Due to the initiation of Order 66, he later served as the main antagonist of the series finale Victory and Death, making him the final antagonist of the whole show.
Jesse was one of many clones bred from the genetic template of infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett to fight for the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars. He served in the legendary 501st Legion under Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano. He was known for his good sense of humor.
Jesse was eventually promoted to Lieutenant and became an Advanced Recon Commando (ARC Trooper) due to his numerous accomplishments throughout the war. In the final days of the Clone Wars, Jesse was part of a division of the 501st sent under the command of Ahsoka Tano and Clone Commander Rex to overthrow Darth Maul's government on the planet Mandalore and capture the Sith Lord.
While the Siege was successful and Maul was captured, Order 66 was initiated by Darth Sidious during the journey back to Coruscant aboard a Star Destroyer. The inhibitor chips located in the brain of every clone forced all of Tano's soldiers to turn on her, including Jesse. Ahsoka, seeking a way to survive, freed Maul of his imprisonment and removed Rex's inhibitor chip, returning the latter's free will.
Jesse, now the highest-ranking officer, led the manhunt for Ahsoka, Rex, and Maul aboard the Star Destroyer. Unfortunately for him, Jesse and his troopers were unsuccessful in their mission, as they all perished when Maul forced the Destroyer to crash on a moon. Jesse, alongside all of his men, were buried by Ahsoka and Rex on the aforementioned moon.
