The clone army is created from Jango Fett and so the entire army contains his genetic material.

Is it stated anywhere if these troopers were made infertile? I can see issues if they decided to form relationships and have children, especially if on the same planet and you then had a number of individuals all with the same genetic parent/grandparent.

    Does this answer your question? Can the clones sexually reproduce?

    I've re-opened this because the proposed duplicate accepts Legends answers and has a Legends-only answer. This looks like it's for canon only, in which case it's not a duplicate. Please confirm, Richard C.

    @Null a non-Legends answer to the previous question would still be an answer, no? Making this one a duplicate.

  • I agree with Jenayah, the other has a broader scope but still has accepts canon answers so a dupe.

  • @Jenayah If you all want to close it again I won't re-open it as I'm slightly on the fence about it myself, but I'm concerned about the acceptance of a Legends answer on the other question whereas this one would presumably accept a canon-only answer. We don't want users being directed to a Legends answer when/if a canon answer is available.

In the Clone Wars episode The Deserter, Rex mets a deserted clone trooper who has a wife and children, so apparently the answer is no.

  • It's debatable as to whether or not they are adopted or the clones children.

  • On top of the adoption possibility, there are also other possibilities: (a) some form of artificial insemination (generating a sperrm from DNA artificially) or (b) given the amount of clone troopers in existence, some may have been produced with a "fault" (not being sterile), and I guess there's also (c) the trooper is unaware that his wife had a lover who got her pregnant.

    It is actually not a debate. Pablo Hidalgo confirmed that they are adopted, which makes perfect sense: have the Clone Wars really been going on long enough for him to have had children that old?
