| General information
Incinerator stormtroopers, often referred to as incinerator troopers, were an elite specialized variant of stormtrooper, distinguished by the red markings they bore on their armor, which made them resemble Palpatine's shock troopers.
They were equipped with green-tinted visors on their helmets and powerful plasma rifles. Cloned from a Human stock, incinerator stormtroopers were raised with intense urges to burn and destroy. They were equipped with powerful plasma rifles to burn down entire villages and cities. Their stormtrooper armor was exceptionally heat-resistant, able to withstand high temperatures. They were also equipped with the standard E-11 blaster rifle, SE-14R blaster pistol, and thermal detonator.
Incinerator stormtroopers were sent on missions where an example needed to be made. They would march into settlements and burn them to the ground, leaving nothing standing. They did not hesitate to even ignite any bystanders that got in their reign of destruction.
As dissent grew amongst the Empire's member systems, the Empire needed a way to make an example of systems. The Empire cloned incinerator stormtroopers from a Human's genetic stock, with the intention to turn them into psychopathic pyromaniacs. As they were raised they were trained to develop an incredible desire to burn and destroy. Sent on missions to burn down villages and incite panic, they were usually accompanied by Darth Vader although they were known to operate without him.
They were sent to Kashyyyk around 2 BBY to quell any potential uprisings that may have occurred during the construction of the Wookiee slave Skyhook. A number of them were also present during the Imperial occupation of Felucia.
