- "With the full power of the Dark Side at his command, he planned to lead an army of twisted clones in a bid for galactic conquest. As his brother, it was my sworn duty to stop him. Once and for all."
- ―X2, on X1
X1's faction was a splinter faction of the Galactic Empire founded by the former clone trooper X1 during the splintering of the Empire in the aftermath of Emperor Palpatine's death at the Battle of Endor. The faction was dissolved after his death at the hands of his brother, X2, during the Battle of Mustafar. For a time, X1 used Bast Castle on Vjun as his headquarters.
The faction fielded various military units such as dark troopers, stormtroopers, scout troopers, Wookiee clones, Emperor's Royal Guards, shock troopers, Star Destroyers, TIE/D Defenders, TIE/LN starfighters, TIE/sa bombers, and an Executor-class Star Dreadnought. Along with those, the faction also used units that belonged to the Separatist Droid Army such as B2 super battle droids, droidekas, IG-100 MagnaGuards, engineer battle droids, and battle droid assassins in order to have more firepower. The faction also did cloning experiments on Dathomir and had cloning facilities on Mustafar in order to create X1's clone army. On Dathomir, the faction deployed a saboteur.
X1, a former clone trooper, created his own faction following the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, during the power vacuum that resulted from his demise. The faction used Bast Castle on Vjun as their headquarters. X1's forces engaged the New Republic during several battles, including the Battle of Mustafar. However, X1 was slain by his brother X2 during the engagement on Mustafar, and the faction ceased to exist.
Behind the scenesEdit
X1's faction appeared as the Galactic Empire and not as X1's faction in the game it appeared in, Battlefront: Elite Squadron. The name of this article is hypothetical and is about the forces that X1 controlled.
