Shiv was the nickname of a clone cold assault trooper stationed on Orto Plutonia. He enjoyed writing letters to his hatch-mate and friend Flanker. They always joked that they would be shipped off to some water world, but sadly, Flanker was killed at the Battle of Christophsis.
On Orto Plutonia, Shiv and Commander Mag were on a scouting mission Freeco bikes when their bike's engines froze in the cold. They had to set up a small camp and took turns guarding the camp in case any Talz came to attack them. To relax Shiv's nerves he passed the time by writing a letter on his data-tad to his now dead friend Flanker. Mag was killed first by the Talz and soon after so was Shiv.
Shiv was known to carry a DC-15S blaster and data-pad. He had red markings that went diagonally across his helmet, and a red mark that some other clone troopers wore was on top of his forehead. His hair was cut in rectangular shapes near his sideburns and on the sides of his face.
