This Star Wars Legends article contains information from the 2008 Slaves of the Republic comic books that was omitted from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series' 2011 adaptation of the story.

The Season Four episodes "Kidnapped," "Slaves of the Republic," and "Escape from Kadavo" have canonical precedence. Editor discretion is advised.

"I outnumbered, I all the way surrounded– and I about to win victory! Ha Ha Ha!"
―Xerius Ugg[src]

Xerius Ugg was a male Besalisk commander in the Confederacy of Independent Systems.


"I will…never..tell you… where you'll find.... people"
―Ugg's final words[src]

Xerius Ugg led the droid army on Kiros and set a trap for the Republic task force that arrived to liberate the world. Though his forces were decimated, he demanded to see Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, to demand his army's surrender, for he planted thermal bombs around the capital city. Obi-Wan tried to be diplomatic, for he couldn't surrender until he was sure the Togruta were safe. But Ugg was impatient and the negotiations turned into aggressive hand-to-hand combat. But while he fought with Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano went around defusing all the bombs. Eventually, a droid came to him personally and told him what was going on. Frantic, he tried to hit the detonator but only one bomb went off—right at his escape ship. Kenobi then took advantage of the distraction to throw him from the top of the command center. At the bottom, Kenobi once again asked where the Togruta were but Ugg refused to tell before dying.

Behind the scenesEdit

Ugg's first name, Xerius, was not revealed until the introduction in the second issue of Slaves of the Republic.

The Clone Wars animated series featured an animated version of the Battle of Kiros in the season four episode Kidnapped but it featured a number of differences, the most notable being the replacement of Ugg with another CIS commander, a Zygerrian by the name of Darts D'Nar.
