Throughout his lifetime, Master Koon was known to have carried out several missions for the Jedi Order and Galactic Republic. Plo was known to have been a formidable opponent both on land with his lightsaber and in space. During the Clone Wars, Plo flew several missions in his personal starfighter, many of them with his astromech droid R7-F5.
