- ―Eight-Three and Seven-Four
Early Life Edit
CT-014/783 was born on Kamino in the year 32 BBY. His comrades would give him the nickname of Eight-Three; the last two numbers of his birth number. He received training for heavy weapons, eventually taking a position in a LAAT. Upon graduation, he was assigned to a unit, under the command of Lieutenant Four-One and 2nd Lieutenant CL-33/890.
Battle of Haruun Kal Edit
Eight-Three was sent to the Battle of Haruun Kal, after Jedi General Mace Windu and Regimental Commander CRC-09/571 engaged in a conflict on the ground. The trooper was assigned to the bubble turret on the LAAT, alongside his brother CT-6/774. After departing from the Halleck, their gunship's home, they, alongside four other LAATs, engaged against Separatist forces. The trooper and his comrades were able to rescue the stranded troopers on Haruun Kal at Lorshan Pass. They returned to orbit, where they came under attack by 120 droid starfighters, resulting in Eight-Three and Seven-Four's turrets becoming detached from the LAAT. The two were stranded but were able to fight the droids; Seven-Four killed the final Vulture droid with backup power in his turret.
Armor and EquipmentEdit
Eight-Three most likely wore Phase I armor. He also manned the LAAT turret, noting his weapon specialist training.
