c. 32 BBY
The trooper designated 6/298 was born in 32 BBY, like most clones. After graduating from basic training, the trooper remained on Kamino until 22 BBY, when he and his brothers were called to action.
During the First Battle of Geonosis, the trooper was deployed to rescue the Jedi. The LAAT/i the trooper was flying in, landed in around the Jedi in the arena, to secure them. 6/298 jumped out of the gunship, covering the Jedi as they escaped to the gunship. The trooper destroyed a Droideka with his DC-15A blaster rifle. This covered Jedi Generals Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Kit Fisto as they entered the gunship. The trooper jumped back in and the gunship took off.
