He's a little, ah, let's say, cold. I guarantee that he'll do his job well, though. He's never let me down.
—Floran Nima, Jedi General of the 17th Comet Corps speaking about A'den's competence

Alpha-97, also referred to as A-97 or A'den, was an Alpha-class Advanced Recon Commando in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, bred by Jango Fett, father to all clones in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was trained personally by Jango Fett. Due to his anger and strength, he was given the nickname "A'den" (meaning "wrath" or "rage" in Mando'a). He was raised and trained on the watery planet of Kamino, in the capital of Tipoca City. As a cadet before the break-out of the Clone Wars, A'den was among the first hundreds of clones bred, being an Alpha-class clone. He was selected as an Officer Academy candidate, where he was shown to have learned numerous skills. A'den completed his training not long before the Clone Wars began, acing his tests with flying colors. He was granted the rank of 1st lieutenant, before being put in a stasis pod.

After the destruction of the Rishi Moon outpost in the Rishi system, Separatist forces began their invasion of Kamino, beyond the Rishi Maze. A'den, along with the rest of the Alpha-class Advanced Recon Commandos, were released from their stasis pods for the first time since the end of their training. A'den was deployed to hangar ALZ-112, where he fought under the wing of Marshal Commander CC-2771 "Alor" and Jedi General Floran Nima While calling help via comms, Alor was shot, and severely injured. Being the only remaining officer in the hangar, A'den led the remaining clones to fend off the overwhelming enemy numbers. Although the company stationed in the hangar had heavy casualties, they eventually managed to repel the enemy forces. Following the successful defense of Kamino, A'den was promoted to the rank of captain, for his leadership in the battle, after Commander Alor was injured.

While defending the Republic capital of Coruscant in 19 BBY from enemy forces, A'den was revealed a huge secret by RC-0089 "Sithis". While fighting battle droids in urban Coruscant, Sithis had revealed Chancellor Palpatine's Order 66 plot to A'den. Having done some hacking and researching, Sithis discovered the plot, using the data from CT-5555's death log. Although doubtful at first, A'den would later see the plot unfold, only months later. After Order 66, A'den was given discharge from the military, of what was then an empire. His whereabouts and death location are unknown.

"Alpha-97, need I remind you that you were supposed to work as a team? You ran out there, alone."
"No, sir. I won't do it again, sir."
"Good. Now get back in line."
―Jango Fett and A'den
