Like every other clone trooper, Cody was born and trained on the planet Kamino to serve as a soldier of the Republic. He was under the command of Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and frequently fought alongside him, developing mutual trust and camaraderie between the two as they fought alongside each other. Although Cody was not involved in the first battle of Geonosis, he took part in the Battle of Teth, Second Battle of Geonosis, Battle for Anaxes and other battles during the Clone Wars, up to the end of the war in the Battle of Utapau. He also managed to gain a commander's title.
The Clone WarsEdit
Battle of ChristophsisEdit
- "Skywalker should've attacked by now!
Don't worry! He knows the plan."
- ―Cody to General Kenobi
Cody was involved in the battle against a massive Separatist invasion of Christophsis and fought alongside Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. They were able to find a traitor amongst the clones, a clonetrooper sergeant called Slick, who had sold their intelligence to Count Dooku's apprentice Asajj Ventress, which was the reason why the Jedi and clones were apprehended by the droids so easily. Meanwhile Anakin and Obi-Wan were fighting Ventress, Cody and Captain Rex were looking for Slick, who blew up numerous Republic AT-TEs and weapons, but was eventually captured by the couple, while the battle droids gained reinforcements.
After some time from this, Cody was helping to defeat the first wave of droids commanded by General Whorm, that were trying to break the Republic's defense by destroying their heavy cannons, but eventually were forced to retreat by the Separatist tanks getting overwhelmed by the cannons. However, after a short pause in the fighting and padawan Ahsoka Tano becoming Skywalker's apprentice, Whorm was able to set up a rayshield that protected the tanks and droids from the heavy cannon fire. Skywalker and Tano were tasked to take down the shield while Cody, Rex, Kenobi and the clones were trying to hold off the enemy as long as they could, with Kenobi getting captured and stalling the Separatist general by discussing the surrender in a civilized manner. Right before Whorm had enough of the playing and ordered Kenobi to surrender, Skywalker and Tano were able to take down the shield, allowing the cannons to tear the tanks apart, and Whorm being distracted by this, Kenobi was able to take him as a hostage, ending the battle as Republic victory.
Battle of TethEdit
After the Battle of Cristophsis, Cody and his 212th Battalion accompanied by General Kenobi were tasked to defend the 501st Legion, General Skywalker and his apprentice during their mission to extract and bring Jabba the Hutt's son Rotta back to him, who was kidnapped and brought to a Separatist controlled prison on Teth.
Skirmish on Rishi moonEdit
- "Whoa! Rex! What the heck are you doing?
Relax. Just as I thought. Looks like one of those new commando droids."
- ―Cody being shocked by thinking Rex shot one of their fellow soldiers
When Cody and Rex were dispatched to inspect the Rishi moon station, they were welcomed by what looked liked to be a clone trooper, but infact was a commando droid disguised as a clone. It tried to get rid of the two by sending them away with their ship, but was discovered to be a droid by the droids' usual way of saying 'roger, roger' and by a droid attack flare shot by surviving clones called Heavy, Echo and Fives. Rex realized the reason for the odd behaviour and he shot the droid, shocking Cody. They were caught in an ambush set up by the droids in case the disguised droid failed to send the clones away, and the droids proceeded to throw thermal detonators towards the clones. The explosion managed to destroy their shuttle, but the clones were able to survive by hanging from cables and landing safely on the ground. Later they met the survivors and encountered a Rishi eel that earlier ate Cutup, one of the survivors, which Rex shot and used its blue blood to tap an insignia onto Echo's armor. The group managed to take back the station and discovered the droids were sending an "all-good" signal to the unsuspecting Republic fleet and allowing General Grievous to attack Kamino and stop the clones' production once and for all. However, droid reinforcements arrived to the station and discovered a pack of clones had survived. The clones tried to deactivate the all-clear signal by destroying the station with tibanna liquid and explosives set off by remote detonation, but the detonator jammed, forcing Heavy to stay and fix it. Before he managed to fix the device, the droids made it to the inside. Heavy was able to hold the droids off as long as he could, eventually getting shot in the back. However, he was able to sacrifice himself by manually blowing the explosives up while the droids were distracted, stopping the all-clear signal and alerting a Republic fleet of Grievous' presence near Kamino. For this act, Rex promoted the last two survivors to the 501st legion.
Battle of Tipoca CityEdit
After some time from the battle on Rishi moon, the Republic had intercepted a code hologram of Ventress and General Grievous planning an attack to Tipoca City, Kamino. Cody and Rex along with Generals Kenobi and Skywalker and the 501st legion were sent to reinforce General Ti's forces on Kamino. When General Grievous' droid fleet had arrived, Cody was overseeing the battle along with Masters Ti and Kenobi, Prime Minister Lama Su and few other clone officers, but later joined Rex, Echo, Fives and maintenance clone 99 when Ventress' aqua droids carried by Tridents had attacked Tipoca City from underwater. Cody later helped the other clones along with cadets to set up an ambush for Grievous and his droids that were clearing out barracks, while Kenobi engaged Grievous in a short duel. While the clones were battling the incoming droids, 99 tried to run back to the armory to resupply the clones whom Cody order to stop, but due to his slowness was ultimately shot in the back. After the droids all over Tipoca City were defeated with Grievous and Ventress fleeing, 99 was mourned, whom Cody called a true soldier. Later Fives and Echo were once again promoted to ARC Troopers.
Battle of RylothEdit
- "It's not going to be easy getting to those guns, sir."
"There is always a way, Wooley."
- ―Wooley and Commander Cody
Later in the war, Cody was sent to Ryloth to free the Twi'lek's from Techo Union leader and Separatist council member Watt Tambor's oppression. When General Skywalker and his apprentice Commander Tano were able to destroy the blockade surrounding the planet, Cody along with Generals Kenobi and Windu could make an almost safe landing onto the planet, but they were attacked by anti air guns which Windu tasked General Kenobi and the Ghost Company to have destroyed. Kenobi also told the clones that they came to aid the Twi'leks, not to destroy their homes.
End of the warEdit
- "Commander Cody, the time has come. Execute Order 66
Yes my Lord."
- ―Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to Cody
During the Battle of Utapau, Cody received Order 66 from Darth Sidious, publicly known as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The order triggered the clone protocol within his genetically implanted bio-chip, and Cody immediately turned against Kenobi, ordering his forces to fire on the Jedi Master, blasting him with a shot from an All Terrain Tactical Enforcer. Kenobi survived, however, becoming one of the few Jedi to escape the destruction of the Jedi Order. His fate after the Clone Wars is unknown. He was mentioned by his former companion Captain Rex fifteen years later, where it revealed that many of the codes and protocols that they had come up with during the Clone Wars were still used by the Empire.
