Description: Desix was a planet that broke away from the Galactic Republic prior to the Clone Wars and joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems. After the reorganization of the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire, Imperial forces initially attempted to peacefully oust the governor of the planet, Tawni Ames. She refused and took the Imperial-picked governor deployed to the planet, Grotton, hostage. As a result, the Empire deployed a squad of clone troopers led by Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody," which successfully quelled the resistance, eliminated Ames, and installed Imperial rule onto the planet.
Desix was a remote, arid planet that was covered in rocky terrain. Frequent sandstorms plagued the planet and at least three celestial bodies were close to the planet. The rocks and sand on the planet were tinted orange-red. From space, it looked like an orange ball with shades of purple and brown including a distinct golden glow. A city was located on the planet surrounded by vast farmlands which served as the seat of power for Governor Tawni Ames of Desix then later, Govenor Grotton.
At some point, before the Clone Wars, Desix left the Galactic Republic and became an independent system that later joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Governor Tawni Ames hailed from the planet. During the Clone Wars, she teamed up with Mina Bonteri and several Separatist and Republic Senators alike to put forth a treaty to end the Clone Wars. The treaty was rejected by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine and the Clone Wars continued until 19 BBY.
Age of the Empire
After the formation of the Galactic Empire, Desix became a Separatist holdout with the Empire attempting to claim the planet under Imperial Jurisdiction peacefully. Govenor Ames refused, leading to Governor Grotton and a squad of recruited TK troopers to arrive on the planet and claim control. This failed with a battalion of B1-series battle droids surrounding Grotton and his squad leading to them becoming hostages.
The hostage situation led Vice Admiral Rampart to deploy Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody," CT-9904 "Crosshair," and a clone stormtrooper squad to the planet in the mission to Desix. While in Desix's airspace, the Nu-class attack/transport shuttle carrying the clone troopers was shot down by RPS-6 rocket launchers. This caused the shuttle to crash land in Sector Five of the farmlands close to the city.
The surviving clone troopers travelled to the city while facing reprogrammed Separatist droids. The squad successfully managed to enter the city with Cody, Crosshair, "Nova," and "Wyler" splitting off to take the north while the rest of the squad took the south of the city. The squad who took north later entered the bell tower, where the tactical droid and Ames were located. However, they were attacked by droidekas, who killed Wyler. After using electromagnetic pulse grenades to disable them, they continued their advance before Nova was killed by commando droids. Cody and Crosshair finally took out the T-series tactical droid at the top of the bell tower before advancing in to search for Grotton. They then discovered Ames pointing her blaster pistol at him. After a brief standoff, Ames let Grotton go after Cody convinced her that they could resolve the conflict between the Empire and her people peacefully. Grotton on the other hand ordered Cody to kill Ames immediately after being released. Cody tried to reason with Grotton, saying he had just promised to spare Ames, so Crosshair killed her instead, with Grotton ordering that her body be put in the city square to serve as a warning to not rebel against the Empire.
Distraught, Cody left with Crosshair and the remains of the squad on a shuttle departing from Desix while TK troopers began an Imperial occupation of the planet.
A city was located on the planet and served as the headquarters of Govenor Tawni Ames then later Governor Grotton. The city itself was heavily fortified with only 1 known entrance that could be accessed via a bridge.
Desix City was located on the planet Desix during the tenure of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. When the Galactic Empire was founded, it did not recognize the planet as independent and the rule of its governor, Tawni Ames. As such, a new governor was installed for Desix. When Imperial governor Grotton arrived to supervise the planet, Ames and her Separatist holdout took Governor Grotton and his TK troopers hostage. A squad under Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody" eliminated Ames and rescued Grotton, paving the way for an Imperial occupation of the world.
Desix City was a fortified, self-sufficient city on the planet Desix. It was situated on top of a mesa surrounded by high, impenetrable walls. Inhabitants could enter or exit the city through a large main gate that led to a bridge connecting the farmlands on another mesa to the one the city was situated in. The main gate to the city could be opened or closed remotely and the city was equipped with a siren in the event of an emergency to notify the citizens to retreat inside.
The city itself was cramped, containing narrow, windy pathways that not even speeders could navigate through. The homes were very close to each other and were no higher than two stories. The bell tower was the largest structure and dwarfed all other city buildings; it functioned as a control and command center for the fortress and it was from there that Governor Tawni Ames ruled the city and coordinated her forces. During the early reign of the Galactic Empire, many of the buildings were coated in rust. On the outskirts of the city were extensive farmlands whichwere used to grow crops to feed of the city population. Many of the inhabitants who lived inside the city worked there.
After the Clone Wars ended and the Galactic Empire was founded, the Empire appointed Governor Grotton as the new Governor of Desix. As the new Governor, he arrived on board a Nu-class attack/transport shuttle along with a TK stormtrooper squad to supervise the transition of governments. When the shuttle carrying the Imperials arrived at the planet, the siren inside the city was activated to inform the citizens of the incoming Imperial shuttle leading to them rushing back to their homes and locking their doors. When the shuttle landed at the city, Grotton and his squad met with the current Governor Tawni Ames to inform her that he would be replacing her. Due to the Empire still not recognizing the planet as being independent, Ames instead took them hostage with the help of reprogrammed Separatist Droids.
When Vice Admiral Rampart was informed of the hostage crisis, he deployed Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody," CT-9904 "Crosshair," and a squad of clone troopers to the city under the guise of a diplomatic resolution. Knowing that the clone troopers were sent to rescue Grotton, Ames ordered a T-series tactical droid to fire at the shuttle. The droid complied and ordered the city's air strike team to fire at the shuttle resulting in the ship crash landing at Sector Five in the Farmlands at the outskirts of the city.
With no choice but to walk on foot to the city to rescue Grotton, Commander Cody, Crosshair and his squad fought against the reprogrammed Separatist Droids. They managed to destroy an Armored Assault Tank Mk I at the bridge and entered into the main city. The squad split into one team going north with Crosshair and Cody with the other team going south into the city. North Team managed to enter into the bell tower and found Ames with a blaster at Grotton's head. Cody instead of killing Ames convinced her that a peaceful resolution can be reached if she drops her weapon and lets Grotton go. Convinced, Ames let Grotton go however after being released, Grotton ordered Cody to kill Ames. Unable to, Crosshair instead killed her with Grotton ordering the clones to hang her body in the city square to teach them to not rebel against the Empire.
Although the mission was successful, the squad suffered high casualties. After the incident, a Venator-class Star Destroyer arrived at the city and many stormtroopers were deployed to occupy the planet where the soldiers' conducted searches of many of the homes inside the city that were supervised by Grotton. Distraught over what had transpired, Cody left with Crosshair and some clone troopers in a shuttle leaving the planet.
A square was located in a city on the planet Desix. It surrounded a bell tower and had an inner wall that encircled the square with a large gap that acted as the main entrance to the square. The inner wall had at least 2 separate blast doors and contained lights that illuminated the wall. The climate of Desix meant that the square was occasionally swept by sandstorms. In 19 BBY, it was under the control of a Separatist holdout before it was taken over by the Galactic Empire.
When an Imperial Nu-class attack/transport shuttle arrived at Desix City, Governor Grotton and his TK trooper squad greeted the current governor, Tawni Ames at the square, where Grotton informed her that he would be replacing her as governor. Due to the Empire still not recognizing Desix as independent, Grotton and his squad were taken hostage by the Separatist holdout using B1-series battle droids. In the Mission to Desix, after storming the city, CC-2224 "Cody," CT-9904 "Crosshair," and "Nova" came across the city square where they initially encountered no resistance and infiltrated the bell tower. After Governor Grotton was rescued and Ames was executed by Crosshair, he ordered Cody and Crosshair to hang her body at the square to deter the inhabitants of a city from causing civil dissent. When the Galactic Empire arrived at the planet and occupied the city using TK Troopers, they rounded up at least 10 inhabitants of the city at the square.
Desix Bell Tower
The Desix Bell Tower was a structure located in a city on the planet Desix close to the city square.
The tower was the largest structure in Desix City, surrounded by high walls and a main gate. The structure itself contained a large dome at the top where the upper floor was. The tower consisted of two floors. The lower one was mostly empty except for minimal furniture. A staircase connected to the second floor, which had a viewport that overlooked much of the city.
At some point during the Imperial Era, Governor Grotton arrived at the city where he met the current governor, Tawni Ames, at the entrance to the tower. With the Galactic Empire not recognizing Desix's independence from the government and instead trying to replace Ames as governor, Grotton was held hostage by the Separatist holdout.
This resulted in the mission to Desix, where a squad led Commander CC-2224 "Cody" was sent to extract Grotton. Cody led CT-9904 "Crosshair," "Wyler," and "Nova" into the city after the team was split up. As they approached, Grotton, who was originally being kept hostage on the first level, was moved to the second level. When the team infiltrated the tower, they were met with strong opposition, but Cody and Crosshair survived and managed to reach to the second floor and kill the T-series tactical droid. There they confronted Ames, who held Grotton at blasterpoint. Cody convinced her to let Grotton go, promising that he would help reach a peaceful resolution with her. However, immediately after being released, Grotton ordered Cody to kill her. Unable to, Crosshair instead killed her and Grotton ordered the clones to hang her body at the city square.
Sector Five was a location found in the farmlands on the planet Desix close to Desix City. During the Mission to Desix, an Imperial Nu-class attack/transport shuttle carrying CC-2224's squad crash landed there. After the shuttle crashed, Governor Tawni Ames ordered a T-series tactical droid to send scouts to inspect the crash site and check for survivors. The tactical droid complied and sent five B1-series battle droids to check the crash site. The battle droids reported to the tactical droid saying that there were no survivors before being ambushed by what remained of Cody's Squad.
