This clone trooper was part of the Republic forces deployed on the ocean-filled planet of Dac during the Battle of Mon Cala. During the battle, the arrival of the Clone army swayed the battle in favor of the Republic, and the Separatists were forced to retreat.
It wasn't long before the Separatist army regrouped and attacked the Republic forces again. This time the Separatist were aided by the monstrous Hydroid Medusa. The creatures were impervious to the Republic's weaponry, and the Jedi Generals, Mon Calamari, and this trooper and his SCUBA Trooper comrades were forced to retreat to the caves. Though this trooper fought bravely, he was apprehended along with another trooper and commander Monnk by the Separatist and Quarren forces while fleeing and was to be sent to a prison camp.
Fortunately for this trooper and his comrades, the Jedi Generals who had evaded capture along with the Prince Lee-Char, Gial Ackbar, and Meena Tills were prepared to return to the surface to board their cruiser and escape the planet. While looking for an easier way to get everyone to the surface, Kit Fisto noticed the troopers escorted by a caravan of Quarren soldiers on speeders. General Fisto easily dispatched Monnk's captors and sent the Quarren's speeders down to his comrades to hasten their escape, while he and the troopers created a diversion. Unfortunately, the ship the fugitives were planning to escape on was destroyed by Separatist air forces and pieces of the ship sunk into the ocean. Being completely exposed and taking fire from the Separatist forces, this trooper, Monnk and the others latched onto the sinking debris of their destroyed vessel and rode it to the cover of the ocean floor. Unfortunately, the second trooper accompanying the team tried to take out the Aqua droids but was impaled by a Quarren transport craft.
Prison Camp and the Liberation of DacEdit
Realizing that they had no way off the planet, and no way to call for help, this trooper and the others decided their best course of action was to separate into different groups. The trooper and Monnk, went with Fisto, Tano and the Prince. While the Jedi and the Prince conversed in a cave, Monnk and the trooper hid in the weeds just outside and stood guard. The attentive Monnk soon noticed a large number of Mon Calamari and clone trooper prisoners and reported his finding to the rest of the group. The Prince was heart-broken upon seeing his people being forced into slavery, so he then decided, without clearance from the Jedi, to get their attention and boost their moral. This fool-hardy show of courage from the Prince caused a skirmish to outbreak. The troopers and the Jedi were heavily outnumbered until the arrival of the Gungan Grand Army that the Jedi Council had sent to reinforce the decimated Republic forces. The trooper fought side-by-side with the Gungan reinforcements and the tide of the battle appeared to be turning in the Republic's favor until Riff Tamson ordered two Trident-class assault ships to churn the water around the battlefield in order to confuse the Republic and Gungan armies. The trooper again was captured by the Separatists, as were all the Republic-Allied forces on Dac, excluding commander Tano and the Prince.
This trooper was later seen fighting the Separatist forces along with the Mon Calamari, Gungans and the Quarren who had rebelled and freed all of the prisoners. In the end, the Battle of Mon Calamari was won by the Republic forces and the inhabitants of Dac.
