History[edit | edit source]
Battle of Ryloth[edit | edit source]
After the Confederacy of Independent Systems invaded Ryloth and enslaved its Twi'lek inhabitants, the Republic mounted a bold offensive to free them. Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Commander Ahsoka Tano, destroyed the Separatist blockade surrounding the planet under the command of Captain Mar Tuuk, and the Acclamator-class assault ships were able to move in to invade and free the planet.
Under the command of General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Marshal Commander Cody, Ghost Company boarded gunships to land in the city of Nabat. Unfortunately, heavy fire from proton cannons forced the Acclamator transports to retreat, leaving Ghost Company to take out the guns and allow the transports to land, forcing them to suffer heavy casualties. After encountering starved gutkurrs, the squadron met the young Twi'lek Numa, who was able to lead them to the Twi'lek prisoners being used as "living shields" by Tactical droid commander TX-20. Ghost Company created a diversion while the troopers Waxer and Boil helped Obi-Wan free the hostages and destroy the proton cannons.
