The Sovereign Protector was a cadre of the Final Order emperor's guards that protected the Sith Citadel. The military rank was bestowed only upon the best Sith troopers of the Sith Eternal.

HistoryEdit

Several Sovereign Protectors served as the bodyguards of the Sith Eternal cult's Dark Lord of the Sith and Emperor of the Final OrderDarth Sidious—within the Sith Citadel throne room on the planet Exegol[1] by the time of the Resistance's assault on the world[2] in 35 ABY.[3] However, the group was defeated by Ben Solo and the Jedi Rey at the battle when they infiltrated the Citadel to confront the renewed threat of the Sith.[2]

OrganizationEdit

A military rank similar to that of the Old Empire's Royal Guard, individuals of this position acted as the personal guards of the Final Order's emperor. Such a rank within the Sith Eternal could only have been achieved by the best of their army's Sith troopers.[1]

EquipmentEdit

Clad in red and black armor resembling[2] that of a Sith trooper,[1] a Sovereign Protector bore a crimson full-body cape fitted at the neck that evoked the old Imperial Royal Guard, as well as a unique two-pronged blaster rifle. The Protector's helmets were very similar to the standard Sith trooper's, though they were shielded above the eye slit by a lip extending from the headpiece[2] similar to that of a wet-weather gear stormtrooper's.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Sovereign Protectors first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker released on December 20, 2019.

In Star Wars Legends, Palpatine had the Imperial Sovereign Protectors which were similar to the Sovereign Protectors in Canon.

  3. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker to one year after the "Starkiller Incident." As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Incident to 34 ABY, it can be deduced that the events of The Rise of Skywalker took place in 35 ABY.
