I bet the Stormtrooper feels guilty now. Of course, they were the droids they were looking for. Silly buggers falling for the Force :) Star Wars info – The Royal Imperial Guards are red-armoured protectors of the Emperor, these servants are specially-trained storm troopers who met certain physical and emotional characteristics. The Royal Imperial Guards were trained to learn the deadly art of Echani (and fought to the death against their fellow guards just to prove loyalty to Emperor Palpatine) on the barren planet of Yinchorr. Their red armour is based on two unique designs: the Thyrsus Sun Guards and the Mandalorian Death Watch.
