The Zygerrian royal guard were the armed forces of the Zygerrian Slave Empire. They were sentinels sworn to protect Zygerria's Queen and enforce Zygerrian dominance over their slaves as well as protecting Zygerria interests. They were led by the Prime Minister who acted as their captain. The royal guards would mount up on domesticated brezaks and use the large flying creatures to patrol the ground for runaway slaves. They would also fly HH-87 Starhoppers in defense of their slave processing facilities.
During the Clone Wars, the Zygerrian royal guard was under the command of Prime Minister Atai Molec. Following abduction of Kiros' Togruta colonists, the royal guard brought Lars Quell and his slave before their queen, Miraj Scintel. At the slave pits, one of the guards then spotted two of their own freeing Governor Roshti. The guards tortured Obi-Wan Kenobi until Molec recognized him as Kenobi The royal guard then came when Lars and his slave revealed themeselves to be Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. They were able to subdue Rex, Kenobi, and Tano. Skywalker was harder to subdue with their electro-whips.
When Count Dooku arrived at Molec's request, Scintel left several guard to keep an eye on Skywalker. However, they were knocked out by Skywalker. Following Dooku's murder of Scintel, the Royal guards believed Dooku when he told them that the queen was killed by Skywalker. Following Skywalker's and Tano's escape, the Royal guards then herded Roshti and several of his people at Kadavo's slave processing facility into a electrified chamber to dropped into lava. Several of the guards then flew HH-87 Starhoppers against Jedi General Plo Koon's fighters.
