When trooper Waxer was en route to Ryloth on a mission to liberate its besieged population of Twi'leks, he was at first callously dismissive of their plight. "If we're here to free the tail-heads, the least they can do is get out of our way," he said. But, time spent on the planet with a brave little survivor of a Nabat village opened Boil's eyes. The resourceful girl, Numa, guided Boil and his squadmate Waxer through hidden passageways beneath the village, which proved crucial in freeing hostages held by the Separatists. To honor Numa, Boil had a cartoon illustration of Numa added to his helmet.
A natural and practical leader in the clone army, Cody was a good fit for General Kenobi, to whom he was particularly loyal. Cody's keen ability to strategize, combined with his fierce combat style in the heat of battle, earned him the respect of the Jedi, and of his fellow clones as well. He often worked with Captain Rex, with whom he became friends. Cody enjoyed a close relationship with Kenobi, often sharing a tension-busting joke with him during intense moments on the battlefield. When Darth Sidious gave Order 66, however, Cody's loyalty to Kenobi was eclipsed by his clone indoctrination, and he ordered his troops to fire on the Jedi.
Ryloth is the principal planet in the Ryloth system located in the Outer Rim near Tatooine. It is home to the Twi'leks, a humanoid species with two large, fleshy head-tails growing from their skulls. The Twi'leks call these prehensile appendages lekku and can communicate through subtle lekku gestures, although they also speak Twi'leki. During the Clone Wars, scheming Separatist warlords blockaded and invaded Ryloth, hoping to steal its riches.
A Twi'lek child who lived on the planet Ryloth during the Clone Wars, Numa escaped being captured by the Separatist droid army by hiding in tunnels beneath the town of Nabat. Two clone troopers from Ghost Company -- Boil and Waxer -- discovered Numa while on a recon mission. She showed them the tunnels, which Obi-Wan Kenobi then used to free the Twi'lek prisoners and defeat the town's Separatist occupiers.
