c. 32 BBY
Cale was a clone trooper who served in the 212th Attack Battalion during the Clone Wars. He was present on the ship Tempestuous when several prisoners broke out and attacked him and his fellow troopers.
Sometime around 21 BBY to 20 BBY, a bounty hunter named Volans Das was hired by the Confederacy of Independent Systems and attacked a hyper matter facility. However, Jedi generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu were able to stop him. He was taken to a cell in Level 67 of the Venator-class star destroyer Tempestuous. Commander Cody was interrogating him to find out his plans and where he was going to strike next, though the bounty hunter was not intimidated and refused to cooperate, and proceeded to mock the commander.
Cody ordered Cale and fellow trooper Reed to take Das back to his cell, where the former and the bounty hunter had a small argument. The two troops stayed and monitored the cell block. While viewing a control panel, they discovered that two force fields were down. Das had teamed up with another prisoner, Arlain Zee, who was able to make the ration-serving droid unlock their cells. As the two clones went down to stop them, they were intercepted by the prisoners, who knocked them unconscious. Their armor was taken and Das and Zee attempted an escape, though Das was captured and Zee seemingly died in an explosion.
Armor and EquipmentEdit
Cale had Phase II armor with orange shoulder, elbow, and knee plates. However, the helmet did not have the standard markings of the 212th. Instead, a special razor marking with a diamond was on it. This symbol was shared with fellow trooper Reed.
