In the second episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, we see a grizzled clone veteran on Daiyu. He asks for money, and Kenobi tosses him a coin. Who is this?

During research, I found that he was played by the same actor who played Jango Fett and the clones. He could also be Rex, as he has the colors of the 501st Legion. Or Kix. I think this cameo may be important later on.

    He could just be a random clone trooper. They're all player by the same guy because they're, y'know, clones

No one specific.

The episode merely credits him as "Veteran Clone Trooper."

I don't see any implication that it's meant to be a returning named character or a hint of something to come. Instead, the scene represents how much the galaxy has changed since the Clone Wars and also demonstrates Obi-Wan's kindness.

He's likely not Rex or any other prominent 501st member since he doesn't seem to recognize Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan interacted with the officers of the 501st regularly.

Additionally, Captain Rex being destitute and alone doesn't really match with what we know of his life before and after the events of the show.

  • Kenobi saw the clone after asking Qui-Gon's Force ghost for help. Maybe Qui-Gon led the clone trooper there, trying to tell Kenobi that even the Clones were victims were the Empire and Kenobi is needed in the climactic battle to defeat the Empire. It is here that it is revealed that the Empire discarded the Clones after Order 66, whether or not they obeyed it.
