Who is the Leader of the 501st (Vader's Fist)?
I dont mean Darth Vader. I mean the trooper. I have a small lead but i'm not sure if its true or not. The guy is Commander Bow. He seems to be the current one but i'm not sure. If the leader really is Vader then who is second in command? Thanks.

I hadn't heard of Vader's Fist before so I headed to Wookiepedia. Turns out I just haven't gotten to those books yet. Survivor's Quest is the only book I'm missing to be solid timeline wise from the original trilogy thru to the beginning of New Jedi Order (which I have none of, yet).
According to wookiepedia, Clone Commander 1119 (Appo) is the 501st commander during the Clone Wars. He is killed during a mission to Kashyyyk, and then Commander Bow takes over. Bow is presumed to be the commander from that point on into the New Order era.
