"The blue guards started telling everyone to clear the doors, and then people started shouting back. They [the protestors] tried to push back, and that's when the rifles came out."
Lia Reicheds[src]

The Mk II Paladin was a blaster rifle used by the Senate Guards of the Galactic Republic.


Commissioned by the galactic Senate for the use of the Senate Guard, the Mk II Paladin was manufactured by SoroSuub Corporation. This distinctive black-and-silver weapon was powerful and highly accurate in the right hands, and all Guardsmen were trained in rifle proficiency as new recruits. The blaster also carried a stun setting and a stun prod useful for crowd-control situations. Although designated as "ceremonial" weapons, these rifles saw increased use during the latter decades of the Republic's rule. Capable of both single-shot and rapid-fire, they were equipped with collapsible stocks.[1]

By the time of the Galactic Civil War, the rifles were largely stored in the armories deep within the Imperial Palace. A rare sight in the greater galaxy, some remained available as collectors items on the black market.[1]
