"Is there a problem, soldier?"
"FN Twenty-one eighty-seven?"
―Finn and 926[2]

926 was a human male stormtrooper who served the First Order during its war with the Resistance. During his time aboard the Mega-class Star Dreadnought Supremacy, 926 encountered Finn—an ex-stormtrooper who once served with 926 in Batch Eight. Unaware of Finn's desertion from the military, the trooper assumed that his former comrade had become an officer due to the latter's disguise. Believing that a fellow member of Batch Eight had risen to the officers' ranks, 926 congratulated Finn on his promotion.


"You don't remember me. Nine twenty-six, from induct camp. Batch Eight. But I remember you."
―926, to Finn[2]

926 was part of a new generation of stormtroopers trained by the First Order.

926 was a stormtrooper who once served with FN-2187 in Batch Eight prior to the latter's defection from the First Order.[2] During their time in induct camp, 926 gave FN-2187 a run for top spot in target practice.[3] They would ultimately meet again during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, albeit under different circumstances. By then 926 was stationed aboard the Supremacy, a Mega-class Star Dreadnought which served as the flagship of Supreme Leader Snoke. It was on the Dreadnought where 926 encountered "Finn," a Resistance operative whom he recognized as FN-2187. However, he was unaware of the former stormtrooper's defection from the military as well as his mission to infiltrate the Supremacy and disable its hyperspace tracker. He also mistook Finn's stolen uniform as a sign that his former comrade had been promoted to the officers' ranks.[2]

Personality and traits[]

"I know I'm not supposed to initiate contact with officers, but look at you! Never took you for captain material. Batch Eight, heigh-ho!"
―926, to Finn[2]

Trooper 926[2] was a human[1] male. His skills as a marksman were comparable[2] to FN-2187—another stormtrooper whose own skills were considered exceptional by his instructors.[4] Upon encountering FN-2187, later known as Finn, once more after their time in induct camp, 926 remembered him as a fellow member of Batch Eight.[2] Unlike their trainers, who thought that Finn had the potential of becoming an officer one day,[4] 926 never took him for captain material. However, he was pleased to see that someone from Batch Eight had evidently risen in the First Order hierarchy.[2]

Although troopers were not permitted to converse with officers, 926 broke this rule to congratulate Finn and to express pride in Batch Eight. Before parting ways, he gave Finn a friendly swat on the posterior.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

926 first appeared in Jason Fry's Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Expanded Edition simultaneously with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi: A Junior Novel by Michael Kogge, both of which were novelizations for the sequel trilogy's 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi.[2] Tom Hardy portrayed 926 in the scene in which he encountered Finn on the Supremacy, although that scene was ultimately cut from The Last Jedi.[5] The cut material is available in a deleted scene on the 2018 Blu-ray release of the film.[6]

  6. All the New Things We Learned From the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Blu-Ray by Lussier, Germain on io9.gizmodo.com (March 14, 2018): "The home release has the extended version of the "Mega Destroyer Incursion" by Finn, Rose, and DJ. It includes a lot more tension, more humor, a visual homage to the classic '50s romantic dramedy The Apartment, and even a cameo by Ralph Ineson (The Witch) as a First Order officer who's onto their games. Although no one and nothing in the extras confirms it, we're pretty sure a Stormtrooper that talks to Finn in the extended scene is played by Tom Hardy, as has been rumored."
