A brief guide to the Star Wars universe: Stormtrooper


The humble Stormtrooper often suffers a cruel fate in the Star Wars films. Most of them get gunned down, fall over or occasionally bang their hands on doors (see A New Hope).

They are the troops who work for the galactic Empire and are required to fight in all manner of environments, from the Death Star, to the chilly climate of Hoth and then on the forest moon of Endor.

The Force Awakens challenged notions of what it was to be a Stormtrooper, when lead character Finn turned against the Empire and stopped being a Stormtrooper.

Character cool factor: 8

Most likely to: get shot

Least likely to: say ‘white is simply not my colour!’
