Name: CC-6454 "Ponds"

Rank: Marshal Commander

Tier: High 3

Background: CC-6454, nicknamed "Ponds," was a clone trooper commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. Assigned to High Jedi General Mace Windu at the First Battle of Geonosis, Ponds earned his General's trust as the commander of Lightning Squadron, a division of the Galactic Republic's 91st Reconnaissance Corps. Ponds would undergo training under Alpha-17 like many other commanders, and would attend the training alongside his Marshal Commander, Neyo.

In 22 BBY, Emir Wat Tambor of the Techno Union invaded the planet Ryloth, and Ponds assisted Windu, Ghos Gin, and Neyo in invading the planet to secure its liberation. Windu, Ghos Gin, Neyo, and Ponds ultimately joined forces with General Cham Syndulla and his Twi'lek freedom fighters to retake Ryloth from the Confederacy, capturing the capital city of Lessu and taking Tambor as a prisoner of the Republic.

In addition to campaigns at Simocadia, Juma 9, and Behpour, Ponds participated in the Battle of Malastare and assisted Windu in capturing a rampant Zillo Beast that had been awoken from the detonation of an electro-proton bomb. Ponds later participated in many battles, such as Dantooine, Kamino, and Mandalore. After Neyo's death, Ponds took his place as Marshal Commander of the 91st Reconnaissance Corps.

Weaknesses: Ponds is not confident in his ability to lead, having only led Lightning Squad and not the entire 91st Corps like his late predecessor, a mantle that has been thrust on his shoulders. As such, exploiting this insecurity would allow one to force his hand into foolish mistakes. Ponds prefers leading the troopers with a quick and fast attack, leaving the enemy wondering what hit them. As such, an extremely strong, dug-in defence would shatter such an offence and cause Ponds and his men to either retreat or worse.
