Charcter Bio - CC-0411, nicknamed "Ponds," was a clone trooper commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. Around 22 BBY, the Techno Union foreman and Separatist Council member, Emir Wat Tambor, invaded the planet Ryloth, and Ponds assisted High Jedi General Mace Windu in invading the planet to secure its liberation. Ponds was stationed aboard Windu's Acclamator-class assault ship when the forces attempted to land in the city of Nabat, but fire from enemy cannons prevented the transports from landing.
The transports were able to land after High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi eliminated the cannons, and the invasion forces headed to retake Ryloth's capital of Lessu. Ponds led Lightning Squadron, but en route to Lessu, his unit sustained losses during an encounter with several Confederate tanks. In need of reinforcements, Windu convinced Twi'lek freedom fighter Cham Syndulla to join forces with the Republic. The only access to Lessu was via a plasma bridge, and Windu and the Advanced Recon Force troopers Razor and Stak were able to activate it. Ponds and Syndulla led the charge across the bridge, and engaged the Confederate forces, while Windu captured Wat Tambor, freeing the planet. Ponds later participated in a battle on the planet Malastare, and assisted Mace Windu in capturing the Zillo Beast. He also served on the Endurance at the time of Boba Fett's assassination attempt on Mace Windu, but the assassination failed and Fett fled with the Trandoshan
Bossk, and the infamous bounty hunter, Aurra Sing. They kidnapped Ponds along with Kilian and a naval officer, and Sing later executed Ponds.
Ponds was obedient and followed orders. He was assertive, and did not hesitate when giving orders himself, as shown when he immediately ordered Lightning Squadron to the front of the Republic line of walkers during the cliffside ambush. Ponds was also compassionate, and when he learned that there were only Twi'lek women and children in a nearby village, he took pity on them and ordered his men to spare rations, and was also shocked when the Confederacy bombed the village.
He had a friendship with fellow officers Captain Rex and Commander Cody. He comforted the latter when he expressed his concern for Generals Plo Koon and Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Juma 9 station mission. He additionally complemented Rex's shooting skills during the Behpour mission.
He also stayed behind on the Endurance with Admiral Kilian; unfortunately for Ponds, it was that decision that would ultimately lead to his death.
