- "I need a medic over here!"
- ―Anakin Skywalker requesting Kix, the 501st medic to care of the injured trooper.
After the initial skirmish on Kiros, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi received a message from the Separatist commander, the Zygerrian Darts D'Nar, who requested to talk to him alone to discuss the terms of surrender. Believing that D'Nar wanted to surrender, Kenobi went to the governor's tower alone.
When Kenobi entered the main room of D'Nar's headquarters, he saw the commander talking to Dooku and the Zygerrian Atai Molec via a holoprojector, assuring them that the situation on the planet was under his control. As Kenobi entered the room, he was taken under guard by two BX-series droid commandos, and Dooku ordered D'Nar to bring the Jedi to him. D'Nar told Kenobi that in fact that he wanted the Galactic Republic to surrender, revealing that he had planted thermal detonator bombs throughout the city; D'Nar was intent on activating them and killing everyone if the Republic refused to comply.
To prove his point, he ordered the tactical droid, which was also present at the scene, to activate one of the bombs. The bomb detonated near the Republic encampment, injuring a number of clone troopers. This trooper, as well as other troopers, were among the injured. This trooper was examined at first by Anakin Skywalker and then cared for by the 501st Legion's medic, Kix.
