"Denal" was the nickname of a clone trooper in the elite 501st Legion. Considered one of the most experienced members of that unit, he survived many Clone Wars campaigns alongside Captain CT-7567—nicknamed "Rex"—and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. At the start of the war, Denal accompanied Rex, Skywalker, and Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano, on a mission to destroy Skytop Station, a Separatist listening post located on one of the three moons of the planet Ruusan. The group successfully completed their mission, blowing up the station with several explosive charges. Of the five-man squad of clones that was sent there along with the Jedi, only Denal and Rex survived the mission. Denal also saw action on Rodia, Tatooine and Orto Plutonia, conducting many missions on those planets. He rescued a battalion of clone troopers from a Separatist ambush, recovered a lost Republic cargo, and helped a Jedi in distress defeat a force of battle droids. On one occasion, he even saved Tano from a Separatist prison on Tatooine.

Denal was also involved in the discovery and destruction of a new Confederate superweapon—one that could prevent Republic radar from detecting enemy armies. Under the command of Skywalker, Denal participated in a Republic attack on the forces of the bounty hunter Cad Bane above the planet Devaron. The Republic hoped to rescue the Jedi Master Bolla Ropal from Bane and retrieve two valuable items stolen by the bounty hunter—a Jedi holocron and the Kyber memory crystal, which contained information on every Force-sensitive child in the galaxy. Denal was one of the clones who infiltrated Bane's Munificent-class star frigate, which slowly began to tear itself apart, having been set on the self-destruct mode by Bane. The Republic did not manage to rescue Master Ropal, whom Cad Bane had tortured to death. Aboard the frigate, Denal confronted the bounty hunter himself, but was killed by him. Bane donned Denal's armor in order to disguise himself as the clone trooper. Still in possession of the holocron and the Kyber crystal, the bounty hunter escaped from the crumbling starship with the Republic troops.
