"I have led our people since before you were born. I've seen a hundred planets rise and fall through force of arms. If it's not the Separatists out there, then it is an aggressive and malevolent enemy nonetheless, and I will not let whoever it is jeopardize the security of the people of Pantora."
Chi Cho, to Riyo Chuchi[src]

A battle occurred on Orto Plutonia during the Clone Wars, between the Talz and Pantoran species.[1]

The battleEdit

Following the Skirmish on Orto Plutonia, a force of Republic clone troops under the guidance of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Captain Rex lands on the planet of to investigate the disappearance of their local clone trooper force. In their company are also C-3PO and R2-D2, along with a party of Pantoran dignitaries which include Senator Riyo Chuchi and Chairman Chi Cho.

Upon inspection, they find out that both the Republic and the Separatist bases were attacked by an unknown species of creature. Anakin and Obi-Wan follow their clues to a nearby canyon, where they meet the creatures, which turn out to be the native inhabitants of the planet, the Talz. Despite the language barrier, Obi-Wan and Anakin manage to make clear that their mission is for peace, and they arrange a meeting between the Pantorans and the Talz. Unfortunately, Chairman Chi Cho, believing the Talz to be nothing more than unintelligent savages, provokes them into starting a war.

Anakin and Obi-Wan appeal to Riyo Chuchi to find a way to resolve this political matter diplomatically. She contacts the Speaker of the Pantoran Assembly, who grants her the authority to negotiate peace and declares the Chairman out of order. Unfortunately, the solution comes a little too late: both the Talz and the Republic troops suffer casualties, Chi Cho among them. Senator Chuchi pursues a peaceful approach and manages to cease hostilities, conceding sovereignty of Orto Plutonia to the Talz.
