30th Assault Legion, under the command of senior clone commander CC-1322, named "Trigg". Flade was part of the 30th's Havoc Company, and was an active member of its renowned Fox Squad, fighting in many battles in the threat known as the Clone Wars. Flade earned his nickname from his partiality to demolitions, and was thus given his name by his closest brother CT-4678 because of his liking to flames. Of all the troopers of the 30th, Flade was the most humorous and the most comedic. As much as the other troopers hated his humor, they would not have survived the Clone War's insanity without it.
