Biography[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
The clone later nicknamed "Warthog" was born on the planet Kamino as a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett. He and his brothers were bred for service in the Galactic Republic's Grand Army. He became a pilot in the Republic Navy.
First Battle of Felucia[edit | edit source]
During the Clone Wars, Warthog served under Jedi General Plo Koon and Clone Commander Wolffe in the 104th Battalion. During the First Battle of Felucia, Warthog flew a V-19 Torrent starfighter along side General Koon to evacuate General Kenobi's and Skywalker's troops as they were being surrounded. As Koon took on the vulture droids, Warthog and his fellow clone pilots protected the gunships. However, Warthog picked up several enemy fighters on his tail. He called for help, and was then saved by Koon.
Rescue on Kadavo[edit | edit source]
- "Yeah! That got 'em. Good work, General!"
"Keep your focus, Warthog. Watch out for those towers!"
- ―Warthog and Plo Koon
Following the Confederacy's abduction and enslavement of Kiros' Togruta colonists by the Zygerrian's Slave Empire, Warthog went with General Koon, Admiral Barton Coburn's fleet, and the 104th battalion to rescue them, piloting a Clone Z-95 Headhunter. As the men began to eliminate the turret towers as well as the enemy HH-87 Starhoppers, Warthog's fighter was shot in the wing. As Warthog struggled to shake his foe, General Koon came in to shoot down the fighter. Warthog and the men continued to eliminate their targets until it was safe for Admiral Coburn to maneuver his cruiser underneath the facility and rescue the Togrutas.
