The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
|Last Updated:||04 May 2014|
Paradoxically known for having extremely accurate sharpshooting and somehow being unable to ever hit a protagonist, 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 the Emperor. These faceless enforcers of the New Order are considered an extension of the Emperor's will, and thus they often use 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.
