was a general in the Clone Wars, he refused to have anything to do with the clone army. Kota never trusted the clones and instead formed his one own unique unit of hardened soldiers. He recruited and built this small army from local militias, mercenary groups, and even separatist prisoners of war. After Order 66, which saw thousands of Jedi assassinated by the clone troops, most of Kota's soldiers remained loyal to their general and accompanied him into hiding. Around 3BBY Kota and his men have emerged from seclusion, conducting hit and run operations against key Imperial targets throughout galaxy, Though not officially a rebellion, Kota's rag-tag group has caused enough trouble to gain Darth Vader
's personal attention.Some militia troopers were trained by Kota himself in use of energized stun batons, which they use for close-quaters melee combat in environments filled with explosives and other hazards. These specialized soldiers generally rush their enemies, attempting to surround and ovehelm them before a shot can be fired. Armed with standard blaster rifles and cylindrical thermal grenaders, militia saboteurs form the backbone of Kota's troops. These soldiers maneuver in small, tight knit groups, and are well-trained in hit and run tactics. Kota's most skilled and proficient soldiers receive the honor of joining his heavy weapons detail, often providing cover fire for other militia members and defending key positions during raids. Welding massive repeating blasters, these dangerous troopers can clear entire rooms and cause mayhem and confusion amoung even the most hardened Imperial soldiers.
