Notes on Cody beneath cut:
-His wing armor reflects his human body armor. Orange shoulders with thin white markings reflect his helmet visor (not pictured), the bold 3 lines match his torso paint, and the swooping line at the tips are supposed to reflect his thigh paint.
-Cody is extremely unique among the clones in that he's the only one who has wings that are a single, solid color. All other clones have markings of some kind and have at least 2 colors. (I'm thinking there's a system here, with the more heavily pigmented the wings are, the more of a leadership role they have in the flock. Cody being completely solid colored means that he's the leader of the entire clone flock, not that anyone other than clones know...)
-Cody's wings look brown and kinda plain in poor lighting, but when in direct lighting, they're pure, gleaming gold. He can angle his wings and have them visible from space, or even blind enemies.
-Cody, and all CC-class clones have extra long swoopy feathers at their backs. These aren't tail feathers, but rather extend from their back at the base of their wings. They don't serve much function other than to show what class clones they are. These feathers, along with all clone feathers are fireproof, hence why it's no issue that they're directly beneath the jetpack vent.
-All clone wing armor is equipped with shields. When activated, the lines on the backs of their wing armor glow blue, and shields extend across their entire wings. This, combined with the natural armor of their incredibly sturdy feathers gives them a better chance against fighter ships and other airborne enemies. They can also use their wings as shields during ground assaults.

So sometimes when I read time-travel fics about Ben Kenobi, I just get really hyped up with mental images of him, after a few years, getting a message just-arrived time-travel Ahsoka (default is Systems' Scourge, but a late-Rebels Fulcrum is also good so long as she can bring Rex, maybe Wolffe and Ezra).
And just. Like. That first meeting is Ahsoka reaching out with a message to the council for Ben (after catching wind of him through bounty rumors or on an Official Jedi Business Press Release):
Rex wants to know why you're palling around with the Prime.
The Girl Who Died at Mortis'
which is enough Words Of Import that it's Obviously Her without explaining a goddamn thing, and Ben just like. Completely stalls out and has a breakdown on the spot.
Mini-Obi, calling the number she left on the message, in front of the entire council: Hi this is Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, who are you and why are you breaking my Uncle Ben? He's just standing there. You broke him.
Ahsoka: Hi, Obi-Wan, this is General Ashla Torrent of the 501st, aaaaaaaaaaaand let's call it payback for the Hardeen Incident.
Ben, snapping out of it at the sound of her voice: I THOUGHT YOU DIED IN THE PURGE.
Ahsoka: WELL I THOUGHT YOU DIED IN THE PURGE TOO, SIR.
Ben: I WENT TO MANDALORE. I VISITED YOUR GRAVE.
Ahsoka: AND I ATTENDED YOUR FUNERAL AFTER YOU FAKED YOUR DEATH IN MY ARMS WHEN I WAS SIXTEEN, WE'LL CALL IT EVEN.
Obi-Wan: Hold on what the fuck even are you two to each other this is NOT where I thought this was going
"So this Purge happened on... Mortis?"
"No, I was on Mandalore when Order 66 went out. Mortis was like two years earlier and I actually did die but it was only for a few minutes so it doesn't count. I was fifteen so it was like ten years ago for me, it's fine."
Everyone assumes she means like a "My heart stopped long enough for a clinical death" sort of thing and doesn't pursue it.
Someone: She’s got lightsabers. Is she a Jedi
Ben: Good question. Are you a Jedi?
Ben: I guess she’s not a Jedi.
"Are those soldiers Mandalorian?"
"Debatable! Let's go with no."
"They're wearing armor and refuse to de-helmet."
"Trust me, you don't want them to."
Also in this context, everyone just kinda goes [shrug emoji] and says Ahsoka was Ben's Second Padawan whose training was cut short because Reasons (and now she's not a Jedi anymore), because most people don't want to sit through the full story of which padawan is whose and why the age differences were stupid when he was handling half her training anyway.
The main joke is actually that she's Ben's Padawan One Point Five. Only people who sit through the explanation (which isn't actually that long) get to understand it.
Ahsoka just casually joking about her experiences as a war padawan and everyone's like Oh So That's Why Ben Drives His Students So Hard.
He Had To Keep This One Alive.
Ahsoka, brightly: My first day with my master, I almost died four times and that was considered normal.
Ben, thinking about Bandomeer: I mean, same.
Ahsoka: And so did my official master!
Ben: Well, he spread it out over a week, but he was also nine, so...
(They're technically lying but only because in all three cases, their near-death experiences occurred in the day/days leading up to their Master accepting them.)
