STAR WARS: ECLIPSE OF THE EMPIRE
Legions of Loyal Soldiers
Stormtroopers are the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Like Imperial-class Star Destroyers and TIE fighters, stormtroopers serve as ever present reminders of the absolute power of Emperor Palpatine. These faceless enforcers of the New Order are considered an extension of the Emperor’s will, and thus they often used efficient yet usually unreasonable tactics as a way to keep thousands of star systems throughout the galaxy in line. At the height of the Empire, stormtroopers have effectively become symbols of major authority. With few exceptions, they were distinguished from all other military units by their signature white armor.
