The role of First Order stormtrooper executioners, also known as First Order Judicial Stormtroopers or Executioner Troopers, were First Order stormtroopers randomly selected and assigned to dispense final justice on First Order soldiers found guilty of treason.
Owing to the First Order's merciless attitude towards treason, trumping even that of the Galactic Empire where even a derogatory remark was considered treasonous, the First Order stormtrooper executioners tended to do several public executions on anyone with even slight loyalty issues each day. In addition, the stormtrooper executioner underwent several rotations during each session, and was even considered at times a test to see whether they will make it within the Stormtrooper Corps.
Behind the scenesEdit
