Abandoned with his fellow troopers and a Republic accountant named Joram Kithe, they were on their own to figure out how to get off the desert planet. When Kithe awoke and revealed that he had been commissioned as a Republic Intelligence lieutenant, he was placed in command.
Kithe was disturbed by the troopers' reliance on proper procedure, and tried to foster individuality in them. To that end, he gave the troopers nicknames. Hash gained his nickname because of the burn marks on his cheek, a result of the crash.
After making their way to Tur Lorkin, the nearest village, and infiltrating a starship bay, Tooth and Kithe realized that the village was in fact the site of the diamond boron missile manufacturing facility, not the factory which had been the site of the earlier trap.
Determined to destroy it, Tooth faced Kithe and was willing to defy the man's orders to complete his mission. Impressed, Kithe relented. The troopers sabotaged the factory with Kithe's aid while Tooth stole a Corellian ship to draw the CIS fighters away from the starship bay, allowing Kithe and the remaining troopers to escape. Hash took point in the assault on the factory. He was killed in a storm of fire when exiting a turbolift.
