"I guess we're the best."
―Boil — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

"Boil" was the nickname of a clone trooper who served in Ghost Company, part of the Grand Army of the Republic, during the Clone Wars. Boil and his fellow clone trooper Waxer were considered two of the best troops in Ghost Company.[3]


On the planet Ryloth, Boil joined his men, led by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Commander Cody, to liberate the Twi'lek slaves. He and Waxer came across the young orphaned Twi'lek child Numa, who led them to discover that the rest of the city's citizens were being held prisoner by the Separatists in the city's center. The Republic forces then carried out an attack that resulted in the freeing of the Twi'leks through the destruction of the Separatists' proton cannons.[3]

Later, Boil joined Waxer once again when they were sent to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi and clone trooper Trapper after their Republic gunship was shot down during the Second Battle of Geonosis.[4] Serving with the 212th Attack Battalion during the war, Boil later joined his fellow allies once again on the planet Kiros.[5]

Near the end of the war, Boil joined clone troopers Threepwood and Tracker as they accompanied Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in a search for Quinlan Vos, Count Dooku, and Asajj Ventress on the planet Christophsis. After inspecting the crash site of the fugitives' ship Banshee, the clones and Jedi determined that the fugitives were still alive but at least one of them was wounded. Shortly after, they attacked the Separatist base on the planet.[6]


Years later, Numa—now a resistance fighter under the Free Ryloth Movement—wore a piece of armor on her left arm with the word "Boil" written in Aurebesh.[7]
