Reasonably sure they were, aside from the ones which escaped... and they all died. So...

Regardless, Vader would be wearing his 'desert armor', and there'd likely be Sandtrooper-type stormtroopers with him. Meaning airtight suits with their own oxygen supply. Your brain worms are useless.

I mean, they all said they hoped they were. But that doesn't mean they were. Plus, it's canon that at least some survived, because the episode immediately after has an outbreak of them, which they do stop, but it means that not all of them died.

Also, I meant more the army of undead Geonosians that would be defending the planet because of them.


Fair enough, I guess. Anyways, I look forward to when this happens.

Naw, I should be good. But I found the Wikia article on ISDs to learn more about what kind of officers I should note, and uh...those ships are pretty impressive.

Name: Lordan Shandor
Age: 37
Gender: Male
Allegiance paid to: Empire, Grand Moff Sinclair Attaca of the 13th Oversector
Rank (if it applies): Captain
Appearance (Picture appreciated):
Image

Personality: Has a stern personality and has little tolerance for nonsense. The laws of the Empire are something he intends to uphold, and he views the Rebellion and Separatists as dissidence that shouldn't be handled lightly, not to mention the large number of outlaws in the galaxy. His sense of duty means he takes his job very seriously, and does not accept failure from himself or anyone else. When Lordan receives orders, he always intends to obey them. He, among others, has suspicions of his Grand Moff's loyalties, but they are nothing more than minor doubt, that he wouldn't act on without sufficient evidence.
Force Sensitive: No
Skills/Powers: Basic tactics and strategy, ship command.
Weaponry (If any): A blaster pistol thingy. I don't know, I tried but the Wiki hates blaster pistols.
Ship (If any): Imperial-I Star Destroyer, the Instiller
Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please): Lordan was born on Corellia to middle-class parents. Lordan scored high marks in school, but was not necessarily the top student. Lordan went to a spaceship engineering college and worked aboard a space freighter before his ship was attacked by a CIS raiding fleet at the end of the Clone Wars. Before Lordan could be captured and possibly held for ransom, an Imperial Venator came out of hyperspace and began sending the CIS ships scurrying away. Impressed by the finesse of the vessel and pretty thankful, Lordan quit his job on the space freighter. Over the few months he was employed just for basic income, he was taken away with Imperial propaganda and the sense of duty the new regime was setting in.

He opted to enroll in the new Imperial Naval Academy on Coruscant, where he started training to become an Officer. The training was arduous and you had to be mentally tough, but Lordan managed. While Lordan was training there, a Grand Moff visited the academy, Grand Moff Sinclair Attaca, and though he was just Grand Moff over Oversector 13, everyone at the academy stood rigid-backed for the man, even if it was a relatively short visit. He could be any one of their future superiors. Attaca, however, took a small liking to Lordan, which Lordan took a note of. Lordan eventually graduated, and he gradually worked his way up through the ranks. Lordan, knowing he might need help going up further through the ranks and that he had the abilities to be in those upper echelons, requested the recommendation of Grand Moff Attaca, which Attaca granted a few times.

With the power of a Grand Moff's recommendation, Lordan was able to go higher in rank, and with Lordan's deployment to Oversector 13, he was personally appointed by Grand Moff Attaca to the position of captain in one of two Imperial-I star destroyers directly under the Grand Moff's jurisdiction. For Lordan, being a captain of a ship that was the premier capital ship class in the Imperial fleet directly under the jurisdiction of a Grand Moff was as good as being an Admiral. Dive further, and with the almost outright freedom he enjoyed, he almost might have well have been a High Admiral. Only thing was, he was a captain, and of course of only one ship. Instead of spending sun-weights of free time, however, Lordan devoted his ship to bringing Imperial law to the edges of the often lawless edges of Oversector 13. Pirates beware, Lordan didn't have mercy for a ship that didn't surrender in time.

Ultimately, however, Lordan is till under the Grand Moff's jurisdiction, and would follow the Grand Moff's orders as soon as possible, if instantly wasn't an option.

Name: Project Reckoning; "Due Vyndetta"
Age: N/A
Gender: N/A
Allegiance paid to: CIS
Rank (if it applies): General
Appearance (Picture appreciated):
Link
Personality: Cold and calculating, likes to go on missions to insure they go to his plans accordingly
Force Sensitive: No

Skills/Powers: Skilled Hacker and Tactician, Able to inject fragments of his code into systems to effectively remote control them (requires physical introduction), Skilled in Two-Weapon fighting and Hand to Hand combat,

Weaponry (If any): Phrik Vibro-sword, twin vibro-blades, twin "Vilmarh's Revenge" Blaster Pistols

Ship (If any): VCX-100 light freighter "Dread Intrusion"

Biography (At least a well written Paragraph please):

Created shortly before the events on Mustafar, an experimental AI under the name of Project Reckoning was created with the intention of mapping out psychological and historical patterns of enemies to the CIS, and planning around their expected actions. As it learned, Reckoning's personality began to grow, evolving from the simple purpose it had been given, and into a new direction. No longer accepting its intended purpose of planning strategies, Reckoning expressed want to insure that the enemy would not be able to be as much as a threat as they could. When asked what it would do, it listed numerous activities, including assassination, sabotage, and espionage. When asked how, it unveiled blueprints of three droid models it designed itself: one to be its primary form that would be more articulate then others, one to be an upgrade from conventional B1 Battledroids, and another to be a brutish tank of a droid. The latter two models it advised to be produced and sold under a shell-company to further disguise activities, the smaller B1 upgrades to be cheap bodyguards, and the brutes to be cargo-loaders.

While production of the models were underway, Reckoning designed AI packages for the combat droids, basing them off of a downgraded variant of his own code. Satisfied, he began work on his own custom body, working to insure he would reign supreme against any foe. After which, he backed up his own code with accompanying bodies to be sent to his own facility in the case he was destroyed out in the field. Satisfied that he had sated his paranoia, he took up the name "Due Vyndetta", making a name for himself as a bounty hunter, and securing an information and contact network.

RP Example: Already accepted once before.

It's funny how the rebels never seem to take into mind that many of the so-called "evil imperials" they are fighting happen to be average people trying to make a living. Also, conspiracies.

But when your leaders are people willing to blow up billions of people, and you willingly work for them, your morals might be called into question.

Does the Empire not use conscription? I feel like at least some of those people probably didn't join willingly. I know in Rebels, on a few occasions it discusses defectors and spies for the Rebellion within the Empire... odds are plenty of people were just too scared to do that, but wanted to.

Probably. A shortage of volunteers always leads to conscription, which makes me question the quality of conscript troops.

One could argue (and I myself always kinda find this argument annoying) that they didn't have to do their jobs if they disagreed with what they were doing. That they could have up and said "No." That they are thereby supporting what their superiors are doing.

That's a great way to get court martialed and executed. Or simply choked to death by Darth Vader.

I'm sure Vader doesn't have time to deal with thousands of lowly officers. On the other hand, I might have my Moff instill conscription in his parts if the numbers aren't stacking up.

I believe Biggs and Luke, a couple of youths on Tatooine with no real access to Imperial propaganda, were willing to join the military academies at first. Imagine what youth living on planets completely encompassed in a sense of Imperial duty might think. (At least, until they witness or partake in (in which case they are disgusted with themselves) atrocities committed by the Empire and suddenly think joining the Rebellion's a good idea)

That too, although Attaca's intentions of portraying "the friendlier part of the Empire" could serve to diffuse rebel support and strengthen the Empire's, hopefully giving him more credibility as an effective and not terribly unpopular leader. Although that probably (and does) get eyes turning towards him at the same time.

Well, one thing to realize is that not all of the Imperial army commits said atrocities- Primarily, the 501st Legion are the primary executors of such actions.

A majority of the army is probably doing peacekeeping and the like.

And the navy is protecting space lanes from pirates and stuff. The vast majority is good, but there is stuff where you can tell the Emperor is just one evil motherfucker.

He didn't spit his juice and shut Tarkin down after Alderaan. Tarkin went on to try blowing up Yavin 4. And when that Death Star blew up, the Emperor decided a bigger one was a great idea.

People probably experience the everyday good aspects of the Empire and think," Well, maybe they shouldn't have been helping rebels."

I dunno.

It's not like that doesn't happen in real life. Obviously to less of an extreme, because it's a planetary scale, but... yeah.
