|Chronological and political information|
Sergeant Torent was a senior watch trooper aboard the first Death Star's command center. He monitored external sensor data, always vigilant for Rebel activity. It is likely that he died aboard the Death Star when it exploded in the Battle of Yavin.
Behind the scenes
Sergeant Torent was among the characters who got an action figure from Kenner. He was originally called "Death Squad Commander," but after being released on a Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back cardback, his action figure name was changed to "Star Destroyer Commander," because of how the original name sounded too similar to the death squads of Nazi Germany.
