The Clone Wars

"Ghost Company, let's move!"
―Commander Cody[src]

Cody, or CC-2224, was a clone marshal commander who led the Third Systems Army, which included the 212th Attack Battalion and Ghost Company, under the command of Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Clone Wars. A strict by-the-books leader, much like his Jedi General, Cody was a well known and respected commander who often served alongside the more brash Captain Rex throughout the war.



During the first half of the Clone Wars, Cody wore Phase I Clone Trooper Armor, as all troopers did. It was painted with orange markings to match his battalion's color scheme, though dirt and dust had already worn out some of the colors only months into the war. His helmet featured a special visor that allowed him to zoom out to see farther targets.

He later switched to wearing the improved Phase II armor. His armor again bore orange stripes, but additional gray stripes were painted onto his gauntlets. His helmet had an updated visor with a floodlight and an antenna for better communication. The back of his armor sported a jetpack, though he rarely used it.

Cody carried the standard DC-15S as his primary weapon, but he also carried the DC-15A Blaster Rifle for longer range combat. He would occasionally wear a holster for a pistol, and he carried grappling hooks, grenades and droid poppers as needed. A holoprojector was also present in his belt.

Cody was to be paired with a Jedi General and was pleased to discover that he would be operating under the command of famed Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, he did not participate in the first Battle of Geonosis.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (film)

Battle of Christophsis

When the Separatists laid siege to a blockaded Christophsis, Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were dispatched to aid the planet, along with Cody, Captain Rex, and their associated units. Though General Skywalker initially had troubling breaking through the blockade, Kenobi and Cody arrived in time with a prototype stealthship. Skywalker used this to defeat the command ship and the Republic forces plowed through.

Later, the clone forces prepared to ambush a droid trooper movement. They found an ideal business center, with both north and south facing towers. Kenobi and the 212th set up blaster turrets upon the south tower while Skywalker's forces waited at the north. As they stood ready to fire, the droids unexpectedly spilt into two groups and launched an assault on the south tower. Cody and his troops were flanked from several sides and fought wall to wall. The rest of the forces at the north tower soon joined them, however, and together they escaped to the roof. Though more droid units had arrived, a gunship piloted by Hawk had been called in by Skywalker, the clones were evacuated. In a last ditch effort, Gus attacked the tactical droid in charge and took the head with him.

Back at their base, Cody and Rex performed a robotomy and figured out that the Separatists had known their plan all along. After the pair reported their findings, General Kenobi deduced that a spy might be within their ranks. As the Jedi left to investigate Separatists lines, Rex spotted a trooper listening to their conversation. The two officers chased the trooper, but the traitor went into the mess hall, which was filled with squads of clones.

Cody and Rex continued to investigate, and traced irregular signal outputs from the barracks of Sergeant Slick's platoon. They called out several troopers from those quarters and interrogated them. Jester was very nervous, though he presented his cleaned blaster to prove he was busy earlier that evening. Sketch also vouched for him, and he himself and Punch both verified each other's alibis, as they both immediately went to the mess hall directly after the ambush. Gus had been at the infirmary after being injured, and the only trooper left was Chopper. He lied about being in the mess hall, and finally revealed that he had been making war trophies from droid fingers. However, he insisted that he wasn't a traitor, and suggested that he hadn't seen Slick anywhere. Though the sergeant confidently stated that he was not the one, he accidentally revealed that he knew Kenobi and Skywalker were away, something only the officers should have known, and was caught by Cody. Slick attacked them and ran out of the base, and Cody and Rex chased him while ordering the rest of the troopers to secure the area.

After their forces were deployed, evidence was revealed of a traitor among their ranks. After Sergeant Slick was revealed to have sold their intelligence to Asajj Ventress, reinforcements were dispatched by the Republic, and Cody joined Kenobi and Skywalker in defeating the first wave of droids, under the command of General Whorm Loathsome. A second wave of droids charged and then retreated, blocked by the Republic's heavy cannons. However, their retreat was revealed to be a ploy, as they soon charged again, but this time behind a deflector shield, making the heavy cannons useless. Skywalker and his newly arrived apprentice Ahsoka Tano managed to sneak behind enemy lines and destroy the shield generator, and the heavy cannons were able to obliterate the exposed droids.

Battle of Teth

After the Battle of Christophsis, Cody with the troopers of the 212th Attack Battalion accompanied Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi to Teth to aid Jedi General Skywalker and the troopers of the 501st Legion. Cody coordinated the gunships on Spirit of Republic into an assault on the Teth Monastery. Cody and his troopers quick-roped onto the landing platform to back up Kenobi who had already landed to relieve the remainder of Torrent Company. Cody's troops quickly turned the tide of battle.


"I'm Commander Cody, your new boss"
―Cody introduced himself to Hevy, Echo and Fives[src]

When Cody and Rex arrived for an inspection of a communications station on the Rishi Moon, they were greeted by a droid commando disguised as a clone trooper. The survivors of the station, Hevy, Echo, and Fives, knew they had to warn them. Hevy fired a droid attack flare, and Rex's instincts kicked in, blasting the "clone trooper" in the head. After discovering the commando droid, more droids appeared and ambushed them. The two held them off for a brief moment before the droids threw thermal detonators in their direction. Their shuttle was destroyed in the following explosion, but Rex and Cody managed to jump off the platform and employ ascension cables to safely land.


Cody helping the rookies.

After meeting Hevy, Echo and Fives, Cody and Rex learned that they were the only survivors of the invasion, and led the rookie troopers in an attack to retake the base. Upon destroying the droids and regaining control of the station, the group discovered that the all-clear signal had been hot-wired to keep the Republic unsuspecting of a Separatist fleet, led by General Grievous, intent on destroying Kamino and stopping the Republic's production of clones. As droid reinforcements arrived, the clones planned to use multiple explosives and liquid tibanna to destroy the base and stop the all-clear signal, which would alert the Republic to the Separatists' presence. However, after the remote detonator failed to operate, Hevy sacrificed himself, manually activating the detonator and destroying the station. With the all-clear beacon disabled, the Republic fleet arrived in the system and was able to ward off the Separatists.

Hunt for Ziro

Cody accompanied General Kenobi briefly while they awaited the arrival of Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos. Kenobi, who appearanced concerned, explained to the Commander that Vos was crazy. 

ARC Troopers


Fives, Cody, Echo, and Rex defending the barracks

Sometime after the destruction of the Rishi Base, Cody along Jedi Generals Kenobi, Skywalker and fellow officer Capt. Rex watched a intercepted code hologram between General Grievous and Commander Ventress indicating that they were going to attack Kamino. Cody, along with Rex, were sent with their generals along with the rest of 501st to reinforce General Shaak Ti on Kamino. When Grievous arrive, Cody was overseeing the action with Generals Ti, Kenobi, Prime Minister Lama Su and few other clone officers.

Just after Grievous and Ventress assaulted Tipoca City, Cody along with Capt. Rex went to the clone barracks to help troopers Echo, Fives, maintenance clone 99, and a few clone cadets. Just as the droids were on the move towards the barracks, Cody, Rex and 99 gathered more weapons. As Grievous's droids were about to enter the clone barracks, Cody, Rex, Echo, and Fives ambushed them. Cody and Rex then took cover as the droids came in. Cody threw grenades at the droids just as Rex signaled the cadets to open fire from their bunkers. Cody tried to stop 99 from getting more grenades but he failed, as 99 was shot by the droids. After they defeated the droids, Cody called 99 a true soldier. Later, Cody and Rex informed Echo and Fives that have been promoted to ARC Troopers.

Innocents of Ryloth


Cody with Wooley in Nabat

Later, the Republic moved to liberate the Twi'lek inhabitants of the planet Ryloth, who were being oppressed by Techno Union Foreman and Separatist member Wat Tambor. After General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Commander Ahsoka Tano, managed to destroy the Separatist blockade surrounding the planet, the invasion forces were able to move in. Aboard an Acclamator assault ship, Cody boarded the Crumb Bomber with General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ghost Company, and the gunships took off to land in Nabat. Obi-Wan explained to Ghost Company that they had come to aid the Twi'leks, not destroy their home, and Cody instructed his men to utilize blasters and droid poppers only.

However, after proton cannons from below attacked the Acclamator-class transports above, General Mace Windu tasked Obi-Wan and his men with destroying the cannons so that the transports could land. After destroying the droids in a bunker on the outskirts of the village, Obi-Wan and the clones entered the city and set up a temporary camp. Cody went with Wooley, Waxer and Boil to scout ahead, and after he and Wooley went to investigate the courtyard, they discovered that the Twi'leks were being held hostage. After Cody reported their findings back to Obi-Wan and Mace, Obi-Wan decided to continue with the plan; the prisoners would make it difficult, but not impossible.

Cody noticed the prolonged absence of Waxer and Boil, and sent a transmission to them before they moved out. Upon reentering the city, the group was attacked by gutkurrs, but Obi-Wan managed to lure the creatures with the Force into an alley. He instructed Cody and his men to fire at a bridge above the entrance to the alley, and the creatures were trapped. After Obi-Wan jumped over the rubble, Cody handed him back his lightsaber. Waxer and Boil them emerged out of an underground tunnel with the young Twi'lek girl Numa. Cody was initially displeased with their absence, but after he learned of their discovery of the tunnels, he softened up a bit.

Cody led a diversion to distract the droids, while Obi-Wan went with Waxer, Boil and Numa through the tunnels to free the Twi'lek hostages. After everyone was in position, Cody led the attack, and Obi-Wan was able to free the prisoners. After heavy fire from the AAT began to harass them, Cody ordered his men to fall back, and the droids pursued them. However, the tactical droid commander TX-20 was alerted to the rescue, and after Obi-Wan managed to destroy the proton cannons with the help of Waxer and Boil, the tactical droid's tank attacked them. Before TX-20 could destroy Obi-Wan and Numa, however, the former Twi'lek prisoners overran the tank and destroyed the droid. Mace and the transports were then able to land, and the Republic forces headed to the capital city of Lessu to retake it and free the planet. Cody and general Kenobi led their forces and took the Jixuan desert, thus securing Ryloth's southern hemisphere for the Republic.

Landing at Point Rain


Cody, Jet, and Rex briefing

Separatist Poggle the Lesser set up new droid foundries on Geonosis. Cody's gunship made it to Point Rain, the landing zone, where he helped Obi-Wan recover during the battle. He then defended the landing zone until Generals Mundi and Skywalker arrived. He kept fighting until the shield generator came down. The group then prepared for the factory assault.

Legacy of Terror


Commander Cody locates Luminara Unduli in the Queen's captivity.

Cody went with Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi to find Poggle and capture him. They tracked him to the Progate Temple, where Luminara Unduli also had tracked him, but been captured by Geonosian zombies. These zombies had been controlled by Brain Worms that enabled the Queen Karina the Great to keep contact with them even after death. This also made it possible for the drones to continue their attack after being shot or cut by a lightsaber. When Cody, Skywalker, and Kenobi reached the Queen, Cody, together with his men, spread out to ambush Karina the Great and her drones while Kenobi and Skywalker tried to negotiate with the Queen. This, however, failed, and Cody and his troopers killed her while Kenobi and Skywalker rescued Unduli and escaped the collapsing temple, along with Cody.

When Jedi Council Member Eeth Koth was captured by General Grievous, Cody, with a squad of his troopers went with Kenobi aboard a light cruiser to distract Grievous while Skywalker, Adi Gallia, Capt. Rex, and a small squad of troopers aboard a Jedi shuttle were to rescue Master Koth. Cody and Kenobi were successful in getting Grievous's attention. When Grievous's command ship locked on to Kenobi's ship, Cody and his troopers fought against Grievous's commando droids as they boarded the ship. After Grievous's and Kenobi's duel on the Kenobi's ship's bridge, Grievous fled back to his ship. Cody was able to fire a ascension cable at grievous and then he and his men grabbed Grievous, but grievous over powered them. Cody and two of his troopers followed Grievous and Kenobi into the docking tube. When Grievous's ship destroy Kenobi's ship, Cody lost one of his troopers. Luckily, Master Gallia fired a ascension cable to them and Cody, one of his troopers and Kenobi were able to climb out of the docking tube. After Skywalker picked them up, Admiral Yularen told them that one of Grievous's landing ships attempted to land but crashed on Saleucami. Kenobi then decide to take Cody and Rex to find Grievous.

After Kenobi's force's landed on Saleucami, they all went to what remained of grievous landing ship. When they got their, Cody looked at the intake valves which were still warm, meaning that the crash didn't happen that long ago. Kenobi then decided to split up his forces with Rex searching the wetlands while Kenobi, Cody and Crys continued to investigate the crash site. When one of Cody's troopers found a droid, they took it into the AT-TE to look into while continuing their search on the go. Cody was to break the droid's access codes, while Crys was able to power up the droid's guidance system. With this information, they were able to find the other escape pods, hence picking up Grievous's scent. After that Cody and Kenobi found one of the escape pods, but grievous wasn't there, so they move on to the next one. When they found the last escape pod, grievous and his droids were there, waiting for a ship. Cody, Kenobi and their force fought grievous, but once again grievous escape, leaving Cody and Kenobi back where they started.

Cody, along with Kenobi, Rex, Skywalker and ARC Troopers Echo and Fives attended master Plo Koon's briefing of their mission: rescuing master Even Piell from the impenetrable Separatist prison, the Citadel. Later in the Jedi temple's hangar, Cody told echo and fives that the droid crew is their only way through Separatist lines undetected. After he was frozen in carbonite they were loaded onto the supply shuttle and taken to the Citadel. When they got there, the ship landed in cavern near the citadel. After R2-D2 thawed them out, Cody, Kenobi, Skywalker and Rex then looked around. Cody then state that Kenobi was about the wind being too strong for their jetpacks.

They are able to defeat the first wave of commando droids, but when the second wave commando droids moves in, Sobeck activates magnets in the ceiling which all their weapons, along with Skywalker's artificial hand, are attracted to. Cody and one of his troopers fought hand to hand with the droids, till Skywalker disabled the magnets. They were able to defeat the commando droids, and find Piell's officer, Captain Wilhuff Tarkin and other officers.

The Bad Batch

Rex & Cody The Bad Batch

Rex confides with Cody about Echo's fate.

Cody along with the 212th Attack Battalion fought on Anaxes against droid forces lead by Admiral Trench. Despite their best efforts the Republic forces were constantly defeated and the threat of a Separatist victory grew greater. Several Jedi generals and clone commanders met to discuss strategies.

At the meeting, captain Rex revealed to them that he had created an algorithm for calculating the tactics of the 501st Legion. He had only ever shared it with two of his men: Fives and Echo. The latter of the two memorized it and was believed to have died at the Citadel, in Separatist hands. The captain believed that Trench was in possession of the algorithm, which allowed him to counter everyone of their moves. Jedi generals Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker agreed, and Windu immediately ordered Cody and Rex to form a squad to recover the algorithm.

Cody selected Clone Force 99, a squad of experimental Clone Commandos with "desirable mutations" which he had founded, for the mission. They rode in an LAAT gunship to the enemy cyber center where they were to break in and retrieve the algorithm. However, as they approached the cyber center, their gunship was shot down by Droid artillery. The ship crash landed, and though all of the squad survived, Cody was knocked unconscious and severely injured. He had internal bleeding and could not go further in the mission. He was assisted by medic Kix, who stayed with him while the rest of the squad completed their goal.

Unfinished Business

Once the clones began to unload equipment, it was discovered that the asteroid they were on was about to explode. Quickly, the Jedi and clones escaped and left the asteroid, thanks to Vos - however, the Jedi was simply fooling all of them, and was still working for Count Dooku. He was present when they were escorting Quinlan Vos and Count Dooku to await trail along with Jedi Masters Kav Bayons, Desh and a dozen other clones, however the two managed to escape killing the two Jedi and the rest of the clones injuring Cody who was patched up while Skywalker and Kenobi hunted for them.

Post-Clone Wars

"You know what makes us different from battle droids? We make our own decisions. Our own choices. And we have to live with them too."
―Cody to Crosshair[src]

Cody was serving with General Kenobi on Utapau when Order 66 was issued, which prompted him to turn against his Jedi General like nearly all other clones. Cody ordered an AT-TE to fire on Kenobi's position, sending the Jedi Master to a fall from which he was presumed dead. Cody was soon inducted into the Imperial Army of the newly formed Galactic Empire, exchanging the orange markings on his armor for gray markings. Eventually, he worked with former Bad Batch member Crosshair once again. After a mission in which they were forced to execute the governor of former Separatist world, Desix, Cody questioned his role in the new Empire. Soon after, he was reported as having gone AWOL.

Behind the scenes

  • In one scene in the Star Wars the Clone Wars Movie, Cody's helmet could be seen missing its visor.
  • During the briefing in "Darkness on Umbara," Cody's pockets on his belt can be seen on the front instead of the sides.
