"Do you know what's going on?"
"Maybe it's another drill."
―KE-829 and his partner — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

KE-829 was a clone[2] stormtrooper.[1]


Stationed on the first Death Star, he was on guard duty near Tractor Beam 12. When Obi-Wan Kenobi deactivated the tractor beam to allow the Millennium Falcon to leave Docking Bay 327, he overheard this trooper and his partner conversing about the BT-16. After accomplishing his objective, Kenobi used the Force to confuse the stormtroopers and escape the area. Specifically, Kenobi tricked KE-829 into thinking that a drill was coming up.[1]

Though a few individuals were known to have survived the space station,[4] KE-829 presumably died when the Death Star was destroyed in the Battle of Yavin.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

In the popular non-canon comic Tag & Bink Are Dead 1, it is retconned these two stormtroopers are Tag and Bink.
