CC-5869 was born as a clone to Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Jango Fett on the planet Kamino. He eventually participated in the Clone Wars and made the rank of Commander, and commanded a Regiment in the Diplomatic Escort Group of the Coruscant Guard.
During the war, CC-5869 escorted Senator Kharrus and Representative Jar Jar Binks to Florrum to pay a ransom to a group of Weequay Pirates led by Hondo Ohnaka, who had captured Separitist leader Count Dooku, and was willing to exchange him for a ransom of spice. When they came in the planet's atmosphere, they were shot down by a group of Hondo's Pirates who wanted the spice themselves. CC-5869 survived along with Binks and a few Clones, but the two Pilots and Senator Kharrus were killed in the crash. The Clones were unable to get the Homing Beacon to work, which meant they were stranded. One of CC-5869's Clones asked him if he was in command, and CC-5869 replied "Technically... No", and said that Representative Binks was in charge,s ince he outranks them all.They were eventually attacked by the Pirates that shot them down, who were riding on Speeder Bikes, but they were able to hide in the Geysers. They made it out, and discovered the spice to be stolen. Binks decided to pursue the Pirates on native skalders. They cought up with the Pirates, and killed all but one of the Pirates, and retook the spice. They then spotted a couple of energy lines, which they followed believing that it would lead them to the Pirate's base. They then came across some tanks, and CC-5869 sent Binks to negotiate. Binks only succeeded in causing one tank to crash into the energy line, and CC-5869 saved Binks from the surviving tank driver, who tried to kill Binks. They eventually captured the other tanks, and continued towards the base.
They eventually came to the base to find Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker (Who were captured with Dooku, but escaped) holding Hondo captive. Obi let Hondo go, saying they had no quarrel with them. CC-5869 was able to power the engines to the Twilight and left Florrum with the two Jedi, Binks, his Troopers, and their spice—which was of no use because Dookue had escaped—and headed to Coruscant.
