  • SANDTROOPER

    Armor includes: Specialized cooling units
    Weapon: Heavy repeating blaster
    Vulnerable to: Jedi mind tricks
    Comments: Across the vastness of Imperial space are an endless variety of envirnments. Specialized stormtrooper battalions are trained and equipped to handle any condition, from the deep of space to the driest desert.








    PRINCESS LEIA

    Member of: The Galactic Senate
    Homeworld: Alderaan
    Thinks Luke: Is short for a Stormtrooper
    Comments: Sent by her father to find one of the greatest heroes of the Old Republic, Princess Leia's ship is captured by a Star Destroyer under the command of the evil Darth Vader. Thinking quickly, she sends the plans to the Death Star down to the surface of Tatooine, under the protection of a pair of droids.






    DARTH VADER

    More machine: Than man
    Senses: Obi-Wan
    Finds your lack of faith: Disturbing
    Comments: Leading the search for the stolen plans to the Death Star, Darth Vader captures Princess Leia and imprisons her aboard that very space station. Face with her stubbornness, he hatches an elaborate plot to locate the secret Rebel base.








    C-3PO

    Model: Protocol Droid
    Not allowed: In the Mos Eisley Cantina
    Captured by: Jawas
    Comments: As a servant to the Royal House of Alderaan, C-3PO is used to comfort. The barren, baking sands and savage natives of the Tatooine desert are more than a mere inconvenience to him; they are an affront to his very core processors.
