In the latter months of 21 BBY, the planet of Umbara left the Galactic Repulic in favor of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. As a result, the Republic sent an invasion force to retake it. The 501st Legion, led by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, was to destroy enemy reinforcements in the north, while the rest of the assault troops would attack the capital from the south.
The 501st began their attack, and the troopers ran into battle. With All Terrain Recon Transports as cavalry, the troopers stormed the Umbaran defenses and soon crushed them. After the Umbaran tanks were destroyed, the troops moved to a large ridge 23 degrees north-northwest of their position.Jedi General Skywalker used the ridge as a staging area and the 501st forces regrouped. As the clones waited and watched General Kenobi's battalion striking the capital at the south, this trooper rested near the back of the forces. However, a small Umbaran droid, a millicreep, snuck up on him and struck him in th neck, electrocuting him and killing him instantly. Immediately after, other Umbarans units began their attack from the rear of the 501st.
