- "Captain Drayk and Sergeants Ven and Ando are coordinating what's left of our troops, but I need to get back out there. It's going to take hours to clean up the mess Grievous has left behind here."
- ―Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi
Sergeant Ando was one of the many clone troopers born on Kamino in 32 BBY. In 21 BBY, Ando and his unit were sent to the planet of Kothlis, where General Grievous and the Separatist had attempted to take over. Grievous used a computer virus that jammed all of the Republic's communications. Although the virus complicated the mission, Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker ordered an attack in retaliation.
Ando boarded a LAAT in the Indomitable's hangar and landed on Kothlis. While Ando and the ground troops fought the Separatists, the technicians aboard the Indomitable were able to restore the communications. The Republic were able to take the planet back from the Separatists. Kenobi and Skywalker had to depart from the planet, leaving Captain Drayk, Sergeant Ven, and Ando to take charge of the troopers remaining on the planet to mop up remaining Separatist forces.
