The 501st was sent to eliminate her but the battle became a disaster for the empire due to a number of unexpected setbacks. On land the 501st was shocked to see that the defenders of Naboo were led by their former brethren from the famed Torrent company, the most veteran company of the 501st under the command of the traitors captain CT-7567 "Rex", the former second-in-command under Lord Vader. Under his command the Naboo defenders put up a deadly resistance and then launched an even more deadly counterattack that drove them from the planet. In this bloody engagement, the 501st lost an entire battalion, entirely composed of veteran troops from the clone wars and Operation: Knightfall.
