During the Galactic Republic's attempt to rescue Jabba the Hutt's kidnapped son, Odd Ball was called in to assist the troops who were fighting Confederate forces on Teth. Flying in a V-19 Torrent starfighter, he fought oncoming vulture droids alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi. During the battle, Odd Ball was tailed by vulture droids and remarked that he was unable to shake them off. General Kenobi came to the pilot's aid and was able to destroy the droids and save Odd Ball. The clone pilot apologised for panicking and Kenobi assured him that it happened to everybody.
Battle of UmbaraEdit
At the start of the Battle of Umbara, Odd Ball and his squad of bombers were called in to provide reinforcements. They bombed a vulnerable enemy position moments after the last of the clone forces evacuated the area.
Battle of CoruscantEdit
Battle of UtapauEdit
When it was discovered that the leader of the Separatist Droid Army, General Grievous was hiding on the planet Utapau, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the 212th Attack Battalion were sent to investigate. Clone troopers engaged battle droids in a heated confrontation, whilst Kenobi dueled with Grievous. After Grievous's defeat at the hands of the Jedi, Order 66 was issued by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. As the contingency was issued, Odd Ball was in battle above Utapau.

A human male clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Odd Ball was 1.83 meters tall and had brown eyes. He proved to be a skilled pilot during the Clone Wars and was apologetic towards Obi-Wan Kenobi when the Jedi provided assistance at the Battle of Teth.
