Elite stormtroopers were employed by the Galactic Empire. Darth Vader was accompanied by six such stormtroopers during the Sith Lord's vengeance campaign two months after the Battle of Yavin.[1] These elite troopers often acted as bodyguards and personal soldiers for high-ranking leaders.

Behind the scenes[]

"It's told through the eyes of a young ensign who is assigned as Vader's aide as he brutalizes his way across the galaxy. I got to invent a new class of Special Forces Stormtrooper as well. It's one of those stories that made me grin while I wrote it, and I love it to pieces."
―Brian Wood, about the Five Days of Sith mini-arc[src]

The Elite stormtrooper first appeared in the thirteenth issue of Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars comic book series, written by Brian Wood and pencilled by Facundo Percio. Released on January 8, 2014, it is the first of a two-part arc, Five Days of Sith.[1]
