The Imperial Stormtroopers are fictional soldiers from George Lucas' Star Wars universe. Stormtroopers are the soldiers of the imperial army under the leadership of the evil emperor Palpatine and his commanders, most notably Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin.
They are shown in collective groups of varying organizational sizes ranging from squads to legions, and, for some, their armor and training is modified for special operations and environments.
Stormtroopers were the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Like Imperial-class Star Destroyers and TIE Fighters, stormtroopers served as ever present reminders of the Emperor's power, extensions of his will, and a method of keeping the Empire's thousands of star systems in line through fear. With few exceptions, the stormtroopers were distinguished from all other Imperial military units by their signature white armor.
The Imperial stormtroopers originated from the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. When the Galactic Republic was reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, the Grand Army was reformed into the Stormtrooper Corps. Under the Empire, stormtroopers operated alongside Imperial Army and Navy units independently, while some placed on Naval ships were given the name "marines."
