As part of his payment for taking the contract to train the clones, Konnor accepted a prototype ARC-170 Heavy Recon. Fighter. The advanced fighter had many features that never made it into the production model due to production cost.
The targeting computer was more advanced
The laser cannons were more powerful
Sublight engines and maneuvering thrusters were faster
Hyperdrive was of a higher grade, rated at .9
Konnor also had the craft customized during his stay on Kamino. He had the wingtip cannons linked to his primary weapons systems that were before controlled by a copilot, converted two of the craftÃ¢Â€Â™s six proton torpedo launchers into guided missile pods, he replaced the copilotÃ¢Â€Â™s position with a sleeping bunk, he ordered the armor plating to be replaced with a higher grade metal and thickened, replaced the two rear-firing single blaster cannons with a three barrel rotating laser mounted in a single turret and placed it under driod control, and converted the gunnerÃ¢Â€Â™s space into extra storage room.
Short History: Little is known about Konnor Drakus before he arrived on Kamino other then what he claimed; that he was a longtime mercenary based on the planet Mandalore. He had no record with the Old Republic or in the Jedi archives before taking Jango's offer to help train clones, suggesting his absolute subtlety or that he worked almost exclusively in the Outer Rim and/or beyond.
Kal Skirata is believed to have worked with him at some point in the past, and itÃ¢Â€Â™s been claimed that it was Kal who suggested to Jango that Konnor offered a position as a drill instructor for the Army of the Republic. During the his time on Kamino, Konnor was known among the clones he trained as an iron fisted leader who never tolerating lapses in discipline or one who forgave mistakes lightly. However, he was also known to often take moments to open himself to his pupils and share his experiences and thoughts with them freely, especially later in a platoonÃ¢Â€Â™s training. Most of all, he was seen as a man who would never give up on a clone. It is rumored that he thwarted several Kaminoan attempts to Ã¢Â€Â˜weed outÃ¢Â€Â™ some of his platoon who were not meeting the clonerÃ¢Â€Â™s standards in emotional or behavioral ways.
After the battle of Geonosis, he resigned as an instructor and returned to Mandalore and his wife for a shot period.
After several months, Konnor contacted the Jedi through the KaminoanÃ¢Â€Â™s, offering his service as an officer in the Army of the Republic. Called to Coruscant, he is given an assignment from Master Mace Windu himselfÃ¢Â€Â¦..
Powering up his sub-light engines, Konnor was surprised to receive a com so soon. Hitting the proper switch, the image of Master Windu appearedÃ¢Â€Â¦.
Ã¢Â€ÂWelcome to Coruscant, Captain Drakus. IÃ¢Â€Â™m afraid there has been a change in plans, and your stay will be limited.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™m not here to take in the sights, general; what would you have me do?Ã¢Â€Â
Mace narrowed his eyes slightly and Drakus's slight at the Jedi's rank. Ã¢Â€ÂOur original intention was to have you advise a new group of commandos that are being combined from squads that were diminished for itÃ¢Â€Â™s first mission together. We have found that in some instances squads that are thrown together from depleted units do not always mesh well together. It was felt that your presence, as the former instructor of some of these men, might better bring them together. However, that can wait.
Ã¢Â€ÂœMy mission now?Ã¢Â€Â
[i]Ã¢Â€ÂA situation has developed on the planet Ord Mantell. One of your former squads, Alpha squad, was sent there to assassinate a key Separatist leader. Our monitoring the planetÃ¢Â€Â™s com frequencies indicates that Alpha Squad has been compromised, and their mission is in danger of failure. All contact was cut with them as a matter of procedure, so the situation is not clear, but intercepted transmissions from Separatist forces indicates that the commandoÃ¢Â€Â™s have been scattered.
Ã¢Â€ÂœSo IÃ¢Â€Â™m plan B, huh?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂCorrect. Assist the clones if possible to complete the mission, but your primary goal is to see to it that the Separatist leader in question is eliminated; with or without AlphaÃ¢Â€Â™s help. We are sending you our complete profile of the target now. Also, we have learned that there is a Mandalorian leading at least part of the Separatist defenses.
Ã¢Â€ÂœInterestingÃ¢Â€Â¦..IÃ¢Â€Â™m on my way.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂA hanger has been cleared for you to land and re-supply Ã¢Â€Â¦.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœNot necessary. I have a mission to accomplishÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â
Master Windu leaned back for a moment, then nodded slightly. So be it. May the Force be with you, Captain.Ã¢Â€Â
Konnor nodded back, then flicked off his com unit. Making the course adjustments for another jump to lightspeed, he began to think back to Alpha and his time with them oh Kamino. What went wrong, Kad? No mission goes as planned, but to have yours blown open so soon? I thought I did better then thatÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â¦.or maybe I should have let the cloners Ã¢Â€Â˜weed outÃ¢Â€Â™ Tal as theyÃ¢Â€Â™d wanted to do. The thought of Tal as his borderline crazy attitude brought back some amusing memories. No, crazy he might be, but in a good way for the line of work he was bred for. Guess IÃ¢Â€Â™ll just have to go see what went wrongÃ¢Â€Â¦..
*This ok with everybody? Can edit if needed. Hope you don't mind me giving myself the rank, WV. Thought it was fitting, higher then the clones, but still under the Jedi. If this is good I'll arrive sometime soon*
