Purge troopers are a specialized class of Imperial soldier trained and equipped to assist the Inquisitors in hunting down Jedi and other Force-sensitive beings who threaten the Empire. Borrowing tactics and methods first used by the Republic soldiers that accompanied Jedi generals during the Clone Wars, this elite group is few in number and keeps out of the public eye. Most citizens of the Empire are unaware they even exist.
- Purge Troopers (Commander)
Purge Troopers were a variant of Stormtroopers that were tasked with hunting down Jedi Knights that had survived Order 66. Originally composed of Clone Troopers, they were eventually supplemented and replaced by non-clone human recruits drawn from the Stormtrooper Corps. They were sometimes assigned to an Inquisitor, as in the case of two Purge troopers serving under the Second Sister in her hunt for Cal Kestis. They are regularly deployed in imperial structures and the Inquisitorial fortress.
Purge Troopers employ advanced defensive and offensive techniques, such as rolling, blocking, grenades and combo attacks. Often the best technique against them is to repel the attack, knocking them off balance, and getting some shots in. You can also use the Force, but pushing is often ineffective, pulling can result in getting hit, but slowing them down can allow you to get powerful hits in. However, this drains your precious reserve of energy.
