Verd was an individual who served in the Grand Army of the Republic with the military rank of commander during the Clone Wars.[1] In 19 BBY,[2] during the final days of the war, Jedi General Plo Koon led the Republic's 442nd Siege Battalion against the Separatist Alliance's forces on the Neimoidian colony Cato Neimoidia.[1]

During the battle, Commander Verd directed the 442nd's companies to besiege the Separatist base at an arena in the city Tarko-se using the battalion's AT-RT walkers and Infantry Support Platforms. With aerial support from Clone Flight Squad Seven and Plo Koon, the Republic forces were eventually able to gain control of the planet from Separatist Alliance General Baik Raaorn and his forces.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Commander Verd was mentioned in Star Wars: Battles that Changed the Galaxy, a reference book published in 2021.[1]

  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas establishes that the Outer Rim Sieges took place in 19 BBY. Since the Battle of Cato Neimoidia was part of the sieges, it must have taken place in 19 BBY as well.
