During the Clone Wars, Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems had control of Kessiak and unearthed the massive machine. This proved to be a serious threat to the Republic, and made Kessiak the prime location of the Battle of Thule. During the final stages of the battle, Anakin Skywalker led the Clone Army break through the defenses into the city and destroyed the Reaper shortly after it was reactivated.
Following the battle, Kessiak was left in smoldering ruins.
