Death Troopers were specialized Stormtroopers with distinctive black armor who were selected from the most elite ranks of the Galactic Empire to act as personal guards for high-ranking Imperial Officers such as Grand Admiral Thrawn. They were typically assigned to protect officers and groups that pertained to advanced weapons development within the Imperial Intelligence Agency. The Death Troopers took part in the Battle of Atollon, but were unable to prevent the escape of various Rebellion personnel from Chopper Base.

History

A squad of death troopers served under the command of the Seventh Fleet's commander,Grand Admiral Thrawn. They assisted Thrawn in capturing Agent Kallus following the latter's discovery as a Rebel spy and continued to hold him during the Battle of Atollon after Thrawn discovered the location of Chopper Base. In the latter part of the battle, several troopers accompanied Thrawn to the Base to capture the senior Rebel officers such as General Jan Dodonna and Captain Hera Syndulla. However, the rebels were able to make their escape when a mystical Force being called The Bendu attacked both the Imperial and Rebel forces. On Thrawn's orders, the death troopers concentrated their fire at Bendu, wounding him and sending him crashing to the ground.

Equipment

The Death Troopers wore black armor differing from that of standard Stormtroopers. They also carried E-11D blasters.

Trivia

  • Death Troopers were first seen in the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie, prior to their debut on Star Wars Rebels television series, serving as the personal guard of Director Orson Krennic.
    • The Death Troopers that accompany Thrawn have incandescent spots on their helmets, which were part of Rogue One's costume design, but were ultimately left unlit in the finished film.
  • Death Troopers is also the name of a Star Wars novel which came out in 2009 (now regarded as Star Wars Legends) under the title Star Wars: Death Troopers, written by author Joe Schreiber.
