Swamptroopers were stormtroopers in the Stormtrooper Corps of the Galactic Empire that specialized in amphibious warfare. During a blockade and crackdown on Pipada, the Empire deployed garrisons of swamptroopers that led the Drabatans to protest. Eventually, the protests turned to massacres, and following a very public execution of Sa'Kalla, soon led to uprisings throughout Pipada.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Swamptroopers were first mentioned in Dawn of Rebellion, a 2018 canon roleplaying supplementary sourcebook that is based on Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The book was published by Fantasy Flight Games and authored by Tim Huckelberry, John Dunn, Sterling Hershey, Jonathan Julius, Keith Ryan Kappel, Jason Marker, Tom Sorenson, and James M. Spahn.
