History[edit | edit source]

Clone Wars[edit | edit source]

Battle for Ryloth[edit | edit source]

The 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps[2] was part of the Grand Army of the Republic and fought in the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance. Early during the war, the 91st participated in the Battle of Ryloth, when Jedi General Mace Windu, alongside Clone Commander CT-411 "Ponds," led their forces to attempt to liberate the capital city of Lessu. En route to Ryloth's capital city on a cliff, General Windu's armored forces came under attack by a group of Armored Assault Tanks while traversing a road alongside a mountain. The contingent of Separatist Alliance forces were able to stop the Republic troops briefly, but were defeated by Lightning Squadron, which were deployed from the AT-TEs of the 91st. After that skirmish, Windu, Stak, and CT-6910 "Razor" came across General Cham Syndulla of the Twi'lek Resistance and his men after they took out a droid patrol. At first, Syndulla was hesitant to join Windu due to another possible occupation by the Republic, but when he learned that the Separatists were bombing Twi'lek villages with Hyena-class bombers, Syndulla decided to help the Republic.[1]

Reaching Lessu, Windu and the two ARF troopers then hid inside an MTTs that was part of a convoy entering the city. Windu then ordered Syndulla and Commander Ponds to commence the attack after bridge was on. The battle droids scanned the cargo on the bridge, and they discovered Windu and his men. After he subdued the droids, Windu pushed his troopers across the bridge as it was being turned off by the droids. As he fell, Windu was able to jump on one of the STAPs and get to other side of the bridge. Windu then held off the droids as Stak and Razor made their way to the control room. After destroying droids in control room They were then able to turn the bridge on and hold it against a few droid reinforcements, including a pair of commando droids. Syndulla and his men fought the battle droids as Windu went to capture Separatist Emir Wat Tambor.[1]

Battle for Malastare[edit | edit source]

The Confederacy's efforts on the planet Malastare were successful, so Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine ordered the use of an electro-proton bomb to deactivate the Separatists' droid army. The bomb worked, but had the unforeseen effect of creating a sinkhole. Windu, alongside Ponds and troopers; "Hawkeye" and "Trapper" discovered the Zillo Beast.[10]

Crisis on Endurance[edit | edit source]

After the Battle on Malastare young Boba Fett infiltrate Windu's Venator-class Star Destroyer Endurance. Fett didn't kill Windu but he crushed the ship on planet Vanqor. Most of the crew evacuated, but Fett, with help of the Aurra Sing, Bossk and Castas, captured Admiral Kilian, Commander Ponds and one Naval Officer. Shortly after this, Ponds was executed by Aurra Sing.

Battle of Patitie Pattuna[edit | edit source]

Later in the war Gallia's Jedi cruiser was attacked by a Separatist fleet under the command of General Grievous. Gallia and her troops battled the cyborg when he boarded her cruiser, putting up a good fight but she was ultimately defeated and captured. Later she watched as Grievous attacked a pirate ship. Gallia was soon rescued by Plo Koon, "Wolffe," and the 104th Battalion; again, Grievous escaped before he could be taken into custody.[5]

D-Squad[edit | edit source]

In 20 BBY[source?] Clone Commander CC-8826's DUM-series pit droid, WAC-47, transferred from the 91st to Colonel Meebur Gascon's D-Squad.[3] The droid squad later saved high-ranking members of the Republic Military echelon, including CC-8826, from a Separatist attack on the Valor space station.[11]

Siege of Saleucami[edit | edit source]

During the Outer Rim Sieges, the Republic deployed CC-8826 "Neyo" and the 91st to the planet Saleucami under General Stass Allie's command.[6] At that moment, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine triggered Order 66, causing clone troopers across the galaxy to betray and kill their Jedi leaders.[9] As a result, Allie was executed by CC-8826 and another 91st trooper while on a speeder bike patrol.[6]
