During a mission to the Outer Rim, Even Piell discovers the coordinates of the Nexus route, a hyperspace route that extends between the Republic and Confederate homeworlds. To prevent the valuable information from falling into enemy hands, Piell memorizes half of the information about the Nexus route and his captain, Wilhuff Tarkin, memorizes the other half. Piell erases record of the route from the onboard computer’s memory.
The Confederacy invades Piell’s cruiser and captures the Jedi Council member. The Separatists imprison and torture Even Piell at Citadel Station. Despite the torture, Even Piell refuses to cooperate or provide information to the Separatists. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and some clone troopers mount a rescue mission. During the rescue, a wild anooba (a mammal) attacks Piell. Wounded and dying, Piells confides in Ahsoka Tano his half of the information about the Nexus route.
