Emperor's Royal Guard

Protector of the Sovereign

Details

Description

Elegance and deadliness -- these are the hallmarks of the crimson-clad Royal Guard that accompanied the galaxy's sovereign at all times. While the guards can trace their origins to the cerulean-clad Senate Guards of the Republic, Palpatine crafted an order of protectors that stood apart from the rest of his forces. Only the most promising of the Imperial ranks were selected for Royal Guard duty, based on stringent requirements of size, strength, intelligence, and loyalty. A Royal Guard was completely covered in flowing red robes and a sleek, featureless scarlet mask obscured their faces.

Even while in office as Supreme Chancellor, the trying times of the Galactic Republic's twilight necessitated the creation of personal elite guards for Palpatine. The red robed guards fit in well with his crimson-walled office as Palpatine dealt with threats from the Separatists during the Clone Wars.
