Taun Kiwi used the body parts of four such mutated Kaminoans to create the Living, Breathing, Talking, Flying, Hovering, Strafing, Bombing Republic Gunship. A fifth unfortunate was stuffed into the gunship's rear end for "spare parts." The mutations occurred after the Kaminoans were injected with a Kaminoan Mutating Virus, which turned them into weird organic computers. Why these particular Kaminoans were chosen remains unknown, but they apparently served the
demented as fuck totally serious and ethical purposes of Taun Kiwi.
