- "This is what I was bred for."
- ―99's last words
99 was deemed unfit for service in the Grand Army of the Republic because of his limited physical abilities and overly rapid aging and was assigned to perform janitorial duties in Kamino's cloning facilities.
He befriended the members of Domino Squad—cadets CT-782, CT-00-2010, CT-21-0408, CT-4040, and CT-27-5555—during their final exam to become clone troopers. However, Domino Squad lacked proper teamwork, which caused it to fail the Citadel Challenge.
Though Jedi Master Shaak Ti decided to give Domino Squad a second chance, 99 later caught CT-782 attempting to go absent without leave in the middle of the night. 99 pleaded with CT-782, whom he nicknamed Hevy, not to leave and taught him the importance of teamwork and brotherhood. Deciding to take 99's advice and name to heart, Hevy led his squad to finish its final exam. Later, Hevy decided to give his graduation medal to 99, with the promise that they would meet again.
During an attack launched against Tipoca City by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, 99 assisted clone troopers CT-21-0408, CT-27-5555, and a group of cadets against the invading droid forces. After meeting with CT-7567 and CC-2224, 99 assisted the captain and commander in defending the city. 99 was shot and killed by a battle droid while attempting to retrieve more explosives for use in combating the droids. Once the Confederacy was pushed back, 99 was mourned by his brothers and commended as a true soldier.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "We lost a true soldier."
"He really was one of us."
- ―CC-2224 and CT-7567 mourning 99.
99 was a dedicated and loyal member of the maintenance division of the Grand Army of the Republic, but was often looked down upon because of his deformity—while 99 always respected his brothers. 99 was also a source of wisdom and was able to develop a strong friendship with Hevy after talking him out of going AWOL.
Despite his limitations, 99 was proud of his basic soldier's heritage which his brothers were able to execute, and was determined to be useful in combat. When Kamino was invaded by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, 99 helped out as best he could by delivering needed weaponry to the clone troopers.
