The Beginning of the Clone Wars Edit
When first assigned RC-6017 served with "Saberjowl" Squad, named after a Kaminoan Rare Sea Creature. There he earned his nickname, "Throttle" After a Vehicle Training where he overclocked his speeder.
"Sergeant 6009, your Demolitions, RC-6017 during the Vehicle Training managed to Overclock the Speeder's... Throttle, over standard Safety Precautions. What will you do with him?

The Battle of Geonosis Edit
Entry #046 of Throttle's "Book"
"Last thing we know, Kaminoan staff is running around, holograms of this dusty ass planet are flying all over around the Briefing for us. The first battle after our years of training, and apparently it's about rescuing a Jedi Distress call and a Droid Factory. Sarge (RC-6009 "Semper") Said we were taking a path through the Valley district of the Planet Via LAAT, taking up to a Vintage point in order to infiltrate an Anti Infantry Compound. As i'm writing this, we're up in the Venator's Ship deployment zone, waiting for our next turn in line for the Shooting Gallery."
Entry #047 of Throttle's "Book"
"Oh god... i'm trying to write this without expressing my feelings but, Semper, Dain, Carbine are all dead. I'll... do a... rundown. As soon as we flew through that Valley, our sights fell upon not just an Anti Infantry Outpost, but a massive AA Cannon hooked up in the back of it. It shot a few rounds, blasting our wings off and hitting the Explosive Storage. We managed to land but, when we got into that outpost- some... lightsaber wielding thing cut them down.

Throttle is more of a Joker then most of his teammates, often being a bit more reckless. Though, sometimes, he finds himself a bad mood, when he's usually his best.
Often, Throttle ponders alot of Political Points, declaring the CIS and Republic to himself, "Just another Party that wants to stand ontop," not having that of a grudge with CIS Civillians and Refugees. He also believes the Jedi to be "Space Hippies with Deadly Flashlights.," Proclaiming them usually as kidnapping militaristic Cultists, though finding himself fine with other Jedi at times. He is also incompetent, leading him to the Re-Assigning.
Throttle is known for being a Knack of Bomb Placement and creation, though rather suffering at poor remembering of how to defuse certain bombs, relying on his Helmet Feed and Teammates to give him a quick brief. Jack of all Trades, Master of none," he views himself as.
