The winter wars were a conflict on the primitive world of Rodis[1] in the Outer Rim Territories.[3] The Rodisar Nilo was a general during the winter wars, having risen to that rank by bribing politicians. He was lackluster as a commander, with his staff providing any military experience.[1] Prior to his death in 22 BBY,[2] Nilo was kidnapped by Zygerrian slavers, who killed most of his followers when they tried to save him. The Zygerrians sold Nilo to Rattataki war barons by talking up his military exploits.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The winter wars were mentioned in the Databank entry for Nilo published on StarWars.com[1] around the time of the character's appearance in the sixth chapter of the Star Wars: Clone Wars microseries,[4] which premiered on Cartoon Network on November 15, 2003.[5]

Therefore, Nilo's abduction during the winter wars must have taken place by 22 BBY.
