Commander Cody (formerly as CC-2224) was a clone marshal commander that served under Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Clone Wars. Cody was played by Temuera Morrison—the same actor who played Jango Fett—in Attack of the Clones, Andrew Chaikin in the Revenge of the Sith video game, André Sogliuzzo in the Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon, and Dee Bradley Baker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Cody was ranked as clone marshal commander and he commanded the 212th Attack Battalion and reported directly with General Kenobi. He often worked with Captain Rex, with whom he became friends. Cody enjoyed a close relationship with Kenobi, often sharing a tension-busting joke with him during intense moments on the battlefield. When Darth Sidious gave Order 66, however, Cody's loyalty to Kenobi was eclipsed by his clone indoctrination, and he ordered his troops to fire on the Jedi.
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the SithEdit
During the Battle of Utapau, Commander Cody led his team of men into Pau City, along with Parjai Squad and various other paratrooping squads. During the attack, Kenobi dropped his lightsaber, which hit the ground in front of him, and he would later return it to the General.
As Obi-Wan engaged Grievous in a fierce lightsaber duel, Cody battled the droid forces. It was during the fighting that he received Order 66 via an encrypted channel from the Supreme Chancellor. In response, Cody ordered one of his AT-TEs to fire at Kenobi and his varactyl mount, Boga, causing the two to plummet to the bottom of the sinkhole.
Cody, all too aware of Jedi prowess, was not convinced of Kenobi's death, and sent Arakyd Prowler 1000 probe droids into the catacombs beneath Pau City to look for him. After following through with Palpatine's orders, he rallied his troops, and within the hour the Separatists were routed and Pau City was under Republic control. Cody's fears were confirmed when he was informed by a lieutenant that General Grievous's personal starfighter had fled the planet. Cody readied his troops to pursue the Separatist Council, which in the confusion of battle had managed to slip away.
Commander Cody has been in several Expanded Universe during the Clone Wars era and Galactic Empire era. He appeared in "Chapter 22" in the Star Wars: Clone Wars television series. In the EU, After the rise of the Empire he serves as a clone trainer to train stormtroopers however he dislikes them.
