Rise of the Empire era
CC-1138, whose official nickname was Bacara, but whose men unofficially nicknamed him Mascara, was a fashion-minded clone commando and one of the few transvestites in the Grand Army of the Republic. He led his troops into battle wearing a fabulous red miniskirt and asymmetric shoulder pad.
He was promoted to lead the Galactic Marines. Upon his promotion, he demanded to design his own dress uniform, which turned out to be a stunning red sequined strapless gown over a standard clone marshal uniform, with a tropical flower on the helmet and a feather boa draped over the shoulders. Despite his transvestitism, Bacara was completely heterosexual and would kill anyone who suggested otherwise.
During Order 66, Bacara was assigned to kill Ki-Adi-Mundi while fighting the InterGalactic Banking Clan on Mygeeto. Mundi was surprised by Bacara's sudden betrayal and distracted by his shiny gold earrings and gaudy ruby necklace, and could not fight back effectively. Commander Bacara destroyed Ki-Adi-Mundi and then his planet.
