"I'm not finished yet, sir. We can do this, General!"
―Clone Captain Keeli, speaking to Ima-Gun Di during their final stand on Ryloth[src]

"Keeli" was the nickname of a clone trooper captain during the Clone Wars. He served under the command of Jedi Master Ima-Gun Di, but died in service while on Ryloth.


Star Wars Keeli

Cloned on the water world of Kamino from the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett. Keeli was dispatched at some point during the war to serve under Jedi General Ima-Gun Di, and help Twi'lek freedom fighters under General Cham Syndulla on Ryloth. Master Di's troops began to run perilously low on men, food, and medical aid. Seeing their dangerous situation, the general devised a plan to cut off all alleys of attack except for one, and to summarily channel the battle droids through it in a desperate attempt to buy the Twi'leks time to escape over the mountain.

This plan worked, and the droids began to stream into the pass. Keeli's forces were decimated to the last man, including Keeli and Di. Keeli had been knocked unconscious by a thermal detonator in the course of the fighting, but as Di was being overrun by the droids, he regained his footing and kept fighting. He helped fend off the surrounding droids with Master Ima-Gun Di. While back-to-back with his Jedi general, Keeli was shot twice in the chest by the droids. Soon after, Di was overrun and killed, but their efforts were not to be in vain for the Twi'leks escaped and got their food and medical supplies.

Behind the scenesEdit

Like all clones in the series, Keeli was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
