|~ Echo comments on the Imperial base's personnel, which included Scorch.|
RC-1262, better known by his nickname Scorch, is one of the deuteragonists of the 2005 video game Star Wars: Republic Commando, a minor character in the 2008-2020 animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and later a minor antagonist in the 2021 Disney+ animated webseries Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
Scorch was a part of the elite commando unit, Delta Squad, and served as the squad's demolition and explosives expert. After the Clone Wars, he became a member of the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps.
He is voiced by Raphael Sbarge.
Like the rest of the clones, Scorch was born on the planet Kamino. He was then assigned to Delta Squad, a elite commando unit along with Boss, Fixer and Sev. Scorch serves alongside his teammates on a number of battlefields, ranging from the rocky planet Geonosis, the streets of Coruscant to the snowy Mygeeto. Towards the last few days of the war, Scorch fought in the Battle of Kashyyyk, during which he and his squad was forced to abandon fellow team member Sev.
After the formation of the Empire, Scorch and the other members of Delta Squad (minus Sev, who was abandoned) served the newly-formed Imperial Army, as members of the Imperial Commandos.
Later, Scorch was involved in the training of the first generation of non-cloned Imperial stormtroopers on Daro. After Gregor, another clone commando was captured trying to desert the base, the rogue clone commando unit known as "the Bad Batch" infiltrated the planet to free him. Scorch then engaged Gregor and the Bad Batch and pursued them, wounding Gregor and Tech before being incapacitated by a flurry of stun blasts by the rest of the Batch. He later regained consciousness and joined the imperial forces to capture the leader of the Bad Batch, Hunter, taking him into a Imperial custody.
Scorch is Delta Squad's wisecracker, regularly cracking jokes during battle. But at the same time, he is also a excellent soldier, serving as the explosive technician of the team.
- Dave Filoni requested the creative team to incorporate Scorch and his teammates into the plot, thus their appearance in season three.
