The Battle of Horain was a battle fought on Horain in the Crantori system during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the battle, B1 battle droid B1-0516 was hit by a blaster bolt, but this caused the droid to develop a conscience, and fight for the Galactic Republic.[2] During the battle B1-0516 (later called Bats) was captured by the Separatist Tactical Droid. The Tactical Droid planned on memory wiping Bats, however before this could happen Bats was rescued by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Captain CT-7567. After a rescuing Bats the Trio made their way to the Republic evacuation point. [3]

Prelude Edit

The planet of Horain was located in the Cantori system.[4] During 20 BBY the planet was the site of a battle between CIS and Republic forces.

The Battle Edit

At some point during the battle Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Captain Rex where pined down behind a destroyed AT-AP by a group of Battle Droids. The Separatist droids where closing in on Rex and Kenobi’s position when, one of Rex’s blaster bolts hit a B1 battle droid in the head. Instead of destroying the battle droid however the bolt damaged the droid and caused it to seemingly develop a conscious. After a few moments the B1 droid began questioning why it’s fellow droids were attacking the republic forces.[5] After the other droid continued to attack the Republic forces the B1 battle droid started to attack it’s fellow droids. At first confused as what was happening Rex and Kenobi quickly seized the opportunity created by the rouge B1, and attacked. After a short battle Rex, Kenobi and the B1 where victorious against the separatist attackers.[6]

After this the Battle droid introduced him self as B1-0516. Rex was initially skeptical of the droid’s true intentions, However Obi-wan convinced him to trust B1-0516 as he was going to help Rex and Him get back to the Republic evacuation point.[7] Upon finding out about B1-0526’s malfunction the Separatist Tactical droid ordered his forces to capture the faulty B1 and bring him back to the Separatist base for interrogation. As Rex, Obi-Wan and Bats (the name given to B1-0516 as a way to abbreviate his name) where making there way through the city they where ambushed by Separatist forces. [8] After a brief firefight with the CIS forces, Bats realizing that the Separatist forces were there for him, decided to sacrifice him self so that his friends could escape.[9]
