Product Backstory
Ruthless and terrifying, the military forces of the Galactic Empire are the means by which Emperor Palpatine enforces and maintains his rule of terror throughout the galaxy. In the waning days of the Old Republic, the ability of the Jedi Knights to maintain peace and order among its citizens was put to the test in the face of the droid armies of the Separatist Movement. Under the direction of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, a Grand Army of the Republic was created to counter the increasing Separatist threat. Fueled by the onset of the Clone Wars, the resulting military buildup provided Palpatine with a standing army of over a million clone units that were completely loyal and unquestioning in their obedience. Revealing himself to be a Sith Lord, Palpatine used his army to wipe out the Jedi Knights and cement his position as the tyrannical leader of the newly formed Galactic Empire.

No longer comprised exclusively of clones, the Imperial Military now adds to its massive numbers through forced enlistment and volunteer recruitment through the Imperial Academy. Whether the vast ground forces of the Imperial Army garrisons or the skilled pilots of the Imperial Navy, the soldiers of the Empire are the most highly trained and well-equipped fighting force in the galaxy. Fiercely devoted to the will of Emperor Palpatine, they have earned their reputation as merciless and unflinching troops and commanders who carry out their orders with grim efficiency or face the ultimate consequence.

As an attentive Captain aboard Vader's Super Star Destroyer, the Executor, Piett was more creatively minded than his by-the-manual superior, Admiral Ozzel. After Ozzel committed a fatal mistake during the hunt for the Rebels, Darth Vader rather dramatically 'dismissed' Ozzel, and promoted Piett to Admiral. Piett served in this capacity during the Battle of Endor, where he perished when an A-wing starfighter crashed into the Executor's bridge.
