Overkill Reference by ZetsubouZed Overkill Reference by ZetsubouZed
Another clone trooper OC for a fan comic.

A trooper named Overkill due to his affinity for going all out berserk on the battlefield, beating down his enemies verbally as well as physically. He favors scare tactics and vibroblades for close range targets, droid or otherwise. About as friendly as he looks, he may be reliable in a combat situation but he doesn’t form attachments easily. He adamantly believes that the clones are merely pawns, but he enjoys killing droids too much to bother making an issue of it.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (c) George Lucas, etc., not me.
OC "Overkill" created by me.

(Please don't use without permission, thanks! :D)

He'd be great friends with my OC Edger (not that he's as negative, but he's pretty violent as well) What does it say on his helmet?

He might eventually, though he actively avoids making friends as he views them as a weakness, as Snowflake finds out first hand.
He'll push you out of the way of an explosion -- but he's just as likely to push you into the mud.
That said, Headshot and Ewok (the only others left from their original squad) are the only ones he really trusts. Panya as well, but for different reasons.
He tolerates the other troopers, respects Captain Rex but not General Skywalker, Kenobi, Commander Tano, or any Jedi. He loathes the Republic and everything it truly stands for (not what it claims to) oppression, corruption, and greed.

The Aurebesh on his bucket reads: "I HUNGER"
There are a multitude of reasons behind this word choice.
First of all, it's intimidating when combined with the teeth if you have the misfortune of facing him on the battlefield (or standing awkwardly next to him in an elevator). There are personal reasons too. He feels cheated about his situation, about all of the clones and their fate, starved of justice, compassion, freedom and a full life.
On a lighter, more literal note, clones have a faster metabolism.
That+plus constantly fighting and being badass=constantly hungry.

I think my OC Kiki would totally agree with him on most points. She doesn't really like the Jedi, even though she is one. She's got her own inner demons to deal with, and the Council practically hates her.

You, my friend, win the internet. Been waiting for a fellow Star Wars nerd to understand it. :iconclonetrooperplz:
Needless to say he's got a sick sense of humor.

Well I wasn't thinking of drawing an epic huge scene with tons of droids and all, I'm more interested in the character himself and to try to transcribe on his simple representation all you know about him (mentally speaking)This being even more interesting considering he is a clone and a very peculiar one on top of that.
And it is also fun to adapt other people in your own style and see how it ends up :)
(Sorry I'm being boring and cryptic lol you know him better than me, tell me what you would like and I see what I can do^^)

Glad you've taken such an interest! Yeah, he's a bit of a twisted one, but that makes him even more fun to write/draw.
He knows his lot in life is a rotten one and views both himself and the other clones as worthless - his opinion of Jedi and the Republic they represent is even lower.
He butchers enemies without remorse, mercy, or a second glance and expects the same treatment from them.
However he is fiercely protective of fellow troopers during combat, and it's hinted at that they're the only reason he hasn't deserted yet.
He delights in the macabre and ironic, and is not without a sense of (morbid) humor. Most either ignore or mildly tolerate his acerbic personality but some actively challenge his views. Headshot and Ewok are the only two from his squad on Kamino who seem undaunted by his antagonistic ways. (for personality/body language reference think Sweeney Todd or Bullet Tooth Tony from the film Snatch)

Recreating characters in your own style is fun, I agree :happybounce:
Hmm...perhaps a sketch or something of him attempting to socialize with normal folk and actually terrifying them, him interacting with other troopers or whatever you think would be fitting (just credit and keep it PG-13 or under please) - doesn't have to be fancy, I'm just excited to see what he'll look like in your style :iconwoohooplz: Can't wait to see what you post! :highfive:
