"[Our] brotherhood comes with looking alike. It makes us a family. When GAR is hurt, we look like GAR, we feel the sadness it feels. It grows our loyalty. Being loyal to GAR, united, makes our strength. Being a weakness encourages obediences to perfect ourselves and not be a shame. Devotion is fed by shame we want fixed. Protection is what a family is about. Honour is what we feel when one of us [does] something heroic."
The Clones of the Republic were never put in stasis or frozen in Carbonite, rather they were preserved through frozen genetic samples. The people of Kamino and Polis Massa kept samples of the templates they used in their line of work. They traded simple goods, such as food and materials for the work that they did. One of these templates is of Jango Fett, having been kept for 200 years in storage, was ready to be used whenever they needed it. On the remote planet of Polis Massa, it would be simple to start up another cloning facility for research. The first 'new' generation of clones only started with 100. These clones would be bought by a coalition of minor houses within the Talpir sector. These highly trained soldiers would be used to assist in the overthrowing of the major houses. However, but the time the clones were mature enough to fight, the coup was over.
This left the Kaminoans with an elite batch of clones, but no buyer. They bided their time, looking for an opportunity to utilise this asset in a way that would allow for further research. They came to realise that the New Republic had destroyed the clones on Kamino due to their involvement in the Stormtrooper program, and determined that a republic supported by their clones would be more sympathetic to their independent research than any Empire, as the previous one had historically subjugated, restricted, and controlled it with an iron fist. This would further encourage a sub-culture of nostalgia for the times of the old Republic, where they regularly received the funds and freedom to conduct their experiments with perceived impunity. The army would leave Polis Massas and start to travel.
The new Grand Army of the Republic was self controlled by two new Commanders who would share equal power throughout he Army. No longer would the clone troopers be led strictly by any government or that of the Jedi Order. They would be only governed by their own in the form of their Clone Council. They would search for many years for a cause to fight in, and people to call their allies.
Long had the Grand Army traveled through the Galaxy to finally ally itself with the RLF (Republic Liberation Forces), a guerilla group freedom-fighters against the New Galactic Empire. they assisted them during the Two Battles of the Imperial Palace, which they won both. Now, since the rebels one the battle, they take most of Coruscant and become known as the PGA, or the People's Galactic Alliance. Since then, the GAR, or Grand Army of the Republic, traveled through the Galaxy in search of a home, though they weren't welcome else where, until one day, they found what they were looking for, Bakura.
Since the BSF lost the massacre, they fled from the planet's system, going to different worlds in the Outer Rim or other territories. The politicians also did the same thing, which has left Bakura in utter chaos, especially its capital Salis D'aar. The ruins became a haven for crime, gun racketeering, spice smuggling, murder, and other inexplicable things. That is, not till GAR moved in, they cleansed the corruption of the Government there that was under control by evil Crime Lords and other underground syndicates. Soon, the Clones defeated the criminals and other villains of tyranny or just detained them, then the Engineers started to rebuild. As soon as the Galaxy heard about the remarkable deeds of the Clones, they immediately came back, maybe even some of the old BSF Former politicians ventured back to the city Salis D'aar that was being rebuilt by the Clone Army and the Republic, attempting to make a stable legislative branch once more, though there is still crime active in the city, but with the Clones and Civilian Security Force's men and women, nothing can be invincible or impossible to handle.
The Clones in the Grand Army called Salis D'aar and the world of Bakura ...Home. With Tipoca City on the planet Kamino destroyed by the New Republic due to it being used by the Old Empire to clone new soldiers , they had no other place to turn to, but they remained in Bakura, their true home, where they would work on setting up a Government and a Monarchy to have the planet ruled for the people and by the people.
During the initial and mid years that followed with their time on Bakura the Grand Army would engage a multitude of enemy forces. Chief among them, their new rival The Revenant Armada. Sith, Imperials, and others would soon meet the shattering past of Clone Troopers once more taking to the battlefield in defense of freedom and democracy. A golden age had begun for the Grand Army in where conflict drove it to rise in an alarming rate. Growing far beyond it's original hopes and once more taking its stance as a galactic military that that galaxy could depend upon. During it's height, the old Commanders and first generation of clones who were born to begin the new Grand Army finally decided to something no clone had done before; retire. It was both a symbol to their new independence and a shining example that even mass produced living beings could finally find and end to their duty.
It didn't take long for the New Republic to rise in a new form sometime years later 220+ ABY. Bakura would join this newer Republic building upon the framework of democracy and freedom as the Grand Army gladly rejoined with the new government. The Grand Army was larger now, stronger, and vastly more independent with a growing sentiment of 'clone pride'. It was a common attitude amongst the later ranks of the Army long since the original Commanders generation that clones were not simply weapons of war, but human in every retrospect.
The years spent in the New Republic were prosperous, even seeing the election of a clone Chancellor. Wars would come and go and worlds would once again depend upon clone trooper might. The older weapons of war during the Clone Wars were reconfigured for the present day as more and more of the Gran Armies staple technological advances such as the Venator-class Star Destroyer and All Terrain Tactical Enforcer became no longer relics, but modified to rival the newer technologies of the age. The New Republic was a success, but quickly did it prove to be a temporary freedom for the Grand army.
The decision to leave the New Republic came for many reasons, but it was then too that the Grand Army would leave its long home of Bakura for greener pastures. The Army was no longer just an army, but something far greater then the initial design. The newer Commanders and Clone Council had formed a society of clones who could be called their own people, and it was this new image that drove them to their new home on Onderon. Onderon not only welcomed the large forces of the Grand Army, but so too did worlds like Yavin IV, Dantooine, and others who would allow Grand Army bases and outposts to be built outside of the New Republic. It was to this end that the Grand Army would finally be seen as their own people when Grand Army Shocks and Troopers convened alongside their allies to form a new government. A government which would see the Grand Army not simply as weapons of war, but as equal citizens. The Galactic Federation was born, and the Grand Army continued to fight for them to this day.
