|Chronological and political information|
A Human male was a stormtrooper in the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. In 0 BBY, he was aboard the Imperial Death Star battlestation. That year, the Death Star was infiltrated by a group trying to rescue one of its prisoners, Senator Leia Organa. Following the rescue, Organa and one of her rescuers, Luke Skywalker, found themselves trapped on an overhang leading to a chasm within the Death Star's Central Core Shaft. Skywalker inadvertently disabled the controls meant for a bridge to extend across the shaft, and the stormtrooper was part of a trio that tried to shoot the pair from a higher overhang across the chasm. During the skirmish, the stormtrooper was killed when Organa shot him with an E-11 blaster rifle.
A Human male served as a stormtrooper in the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War, a conflict between the Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In the year 0 BBY, he was present on the Empire's DS-1 Orbital Battle Station superweapon—codenamed the Death Star.
In 0 BBY, the Death Star was infiltrated by the YT-1300 light freighter Millennium Falcon, with its occupants intent on rescuing one of the battlestation's prisoners, Senator Leia Organa of the planet Alderaan. While heading to Docking Bay 327, the hangar bay where the Millennium Falcon was parked, the group got spotted by stormtrooper patrols while in the Death Star's corridors and split up, with one member, Luke Skywalker, remaining with Organa. The pair took cover behind a blast door, and, to keep the stormtroopers away, Skywalker inadvertently shot out the door's control panel meant to extend a bridge across the Death Star's Central Core Shaft. The pair found themselves stuck on a narrow overhang, and the stormtrooper, along with two other troopers, TK-119 and TK-875, attempted to shoot Skywalker and Organa from a higher overhang across the chasm. During the skirmish, the stormtrooper was killed when Organa shot him in the chestplate with Skywalker's stolen stormtrooper E-11 blaster rifle.
