In 20 BBY, the Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems fought for control over the planet Ringo Vinda. During the battle, the 501st Legion battled up to the Separatist command center, but clone trooper Tup strangely shot and killed Jedi general Tiplar. The officers with him decided that he needed to be taken back to Kamino for examination, and he was loaded aboard a convoy of one Nu-class shuttle and four ARC-170 starfighters. This medical officer and seven clone troopers watched over Tup.
However, as they were about to make the jump to hyperspace, they were ambushed by an HMP droid gunship, accompanied by several rocket-pack equipped super battle droids. The ARC-170s were all destroyed, and the shuttle was hit by a rocket. The pilot and copilot were killed when the buzz droids destroyed the cockpit, which resulted in oxygen being lost and gravity projectors going down.
The 501st Legion troopers used their magnetized boots to cling to the ground. They opened a crate full of breath masks, while this officer and another held their breaths. Although the other trooper received his breath mask in time, this trooper didn't, and died of oxygen deprivation. His body floated in the hold as a battle between clone troopers and droids followed.
