Imperial Death Troopers
The Imperial Death Troopers are soldiers who feature in Star Wars.
The Imperial Death Troopers were an elite faction of soldiers formed in the time of the Galactic Empire who were members of Imperial Intelligence.
Director Orson Krennic was noted for his entourage of Death Troopers due to his place as head of the Death Star Project due to his high placement as an officer in the Advanced Weapons Research division. These troopers accompanied him to apprehend the scientist Galen Erso so that he could complete the weapon.
In appearance, the Death Troopers resembled Stormtroopers but were encased in a dark specialised variation of their armor.
They served as bodyguards and enforcers to key Imperial officials.
