- "I enlisted as a means of supporting my family. Local reserves—I was never supposed to be shipped off planet. I don't care who wins this war. The Separatists offered me a deal—credits, protection. I could see my family again. I took it."
- ―Griebs Kishpaugh, to Banks
Kishpaugh joined the Republic Military as a way to support his family. He expected to remain in the local reserves, but he was instead sent offworld, away from his loved ones. In 22 BBY, Kishpaugh switched his allegiances to the Confederacy of Independent Systems, who offered him credits, protection from Republic retribution, and a return to his homeworld. Before Kishpaugh could escape in his shuttle with the aid of his pilot droid Z-37, Clone Sergeant CT-7719 confronted and stopped him. Kishpaugh was brought into Republic custody.
