A Human male clone of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett served as a trooper in the Galactic Empire's Stormtrooper Corps. During the Galactic Civil War, he was member of the 501st Legion, an elite stormtrooper legion and was assigned to the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator, commanded by Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader.
In 0 BBY, after Rebel agents transmitted the stolen plans of the first Death Star, a new Imperial superweapon, to the Rebel CR90 corvette Tantive IV, Senator Leia Organa's consular ship, the Devastator pursued and captured the Rebel vessel over the planet Tatooine. The Trooper was among the stormtroopers who boarded the Tantive IV. His squad was ordered to search for the passengers of the ship.
DV-692, the superior of the Trooper ordered half of the men under his command to search a passageway and secure a junction, while he was leading the Trooper and the rest to the port subhallway. Their orders were to search the passageways astern and forward. One of his squadmates spotted Senator Organa, who was hiding in a small alcove. Organa shot the Trooper and his squadmate before trying to escape, but DV-692 stunned her with his E-11 blaster rifle. The Trooper's squad escorted Organa to Vader who, after a brief conversation with the prisoner, ordered them to take her to the Devastator.
