Biography[edit | edit source]
Like all clone troopers serving in the Republic Military, Tucker was created by the Kaminoans for the sole purpose of serving the Galactic Republic. In 21 BBY, he and the rest of Blue Squadron were deployed to serve in the Battle of Ryloth. Under the command of Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano, the squadron attempted to break the Separatist blockade around the planet. When the Separatist reinforcements arrived in the system, Commander Tano recklessly delayed the squadron's withdrawal, despite commands from Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Admiral Wullf Yularen to return to the Resolute immediately. He did not survive the battle, being shot down by vulture Droids.
