Behind the scenesEdit
Commander Deviss was first pictured in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith The Visual Dictionary, a guide book published on April 2, 2005. He earned the designation "CT-65/91-6210" in Guide to the Grand Army of the Republic, a reference article published in Star Wars Insider 84, however, is considered non-canon. He was confirmed to be canon in Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, a reference book published on September 4, 2015 as part of Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens series, although he was identified only by his nickname.
Deviss is based on an unused character design from Revenge of the Sith. While the red clone commander does not appear in the movie, he was used as the basis of the "clone commander" figure for the film's toyline. The figure would later be repainted as "Commander Bly" in a later wave.
