    While Caleb Dume was with on a mission with his Jedi Master, Senator Palpatine executed Order 66, which caused the clone troopers whom had stood with them for years, to turn against the Jedi. Caleb had to flee and went underground, fearing for his life since the Jedi had been made enemies of the newly formed Empire.

    While in hiding, he rid himself of his name and disguised himself as a new person. He became nameless and worked with Janus Kasmir as a black market dealer, but not for long. The clones that turned on him never stopped searching and during one deal, they attacked and stole him. He fought his way out of their ship and detonated it, killing the clones he once fought with for years.

    Caleb then realized that as long as he is with Janus, Janus will never be safe. So he left him and joined a group of rebels under the new name Kanan Jarrus.
