Shock Troopers clad in white armor first appeared on the galactic stage during the opening battles of the Clone Wars. Clone Trooper armor became iconic almost immediately; Its stark white design stood for hope that peace and stability might be restored to a galaxy at war. But this dream of peace died with the republic - and the empire that rose to take its place imposed order by any means necessary. Soldiers within the grand army of the republic were given a new name: Stormtroopers. As these former protectors of galactic peace mercilessly crushed resistance across the galaxy - their white armor came to symbolize oppression and the indomitable power of the Emperor's will. Yet the tyranny of Imperial Rule sparked rebellion - and the stormtrooper legions were scattered in the aftermath of the Empire's fall. Now - the rise of the first order ushers in the next chapter in the Stormtrooper's legacy as a new era of ruthless brutality begins.
