c. 32 BBY
Matchstick was the leader within Shadow Squadron. His callsign was "Shadow Two". He was a famous clone pilot and fought in many space battles with his squadron. Matchstick was assigned to serve under Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Republic Navy. Matchstick and Shadow Squadron were given a ride to the Bormus Testing Facility, where they manufactured and tested BTL-B Y-wing starfighters. They were able to test the ships and when they were mission ready, they used them on an attack run against the Malevolence.
Matchstick was sent with his squadron to destroy the Malevolence, alongside Skywalker, his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, and Jedi General Plo Koon. To save time, Shadow Squadron took a shortcut through the Kaliida Nebula, a route Skywalker had heard of when he was a young slave boy on Tatooine. Through the shortcut, Matchstick's Y-wing was damaged by a massive creature, known as a Neebray mantis. Matchstick, being the ace pilot he was, was able to get it under control. The group got out of the nebula, only for the Malevolence to jump out of hyperspace. The Malevolence fired a shot with its ion cannon, which made the squadron fly upwards to avoid it. Matchstick's engine failed, and it exploded, thus causing him to fall and crash into Shadow Five, Tag. Fellow Shadow Squadron members, Seven, Ten and Flyby were also disabled with the ray.
Matchstick wore sleek white Phase 1 clone trooper armor, and had gray and red markings on his helmet. He possessed a DC-17 hand blaster. His armor was different from regular troopers, due to him being a pilot. His armor's elbow pads and arm pads were conjoined.
