Before the Empire left their traditions in ruins, a Guardian of the Whills constructed a lightbow as part of his or her spiritual progression. A lightbow is similar to the bowcasters built by Kashyyyk’s Wookiees, marrying handcrafted artisanry with technology to create a weapon more powerful than a heavy rifle. Chirrut Îmwe uses his lightbow to devastating effect on Eadu and Scarif.
A rugged planet in the Outer Rim’s Bheriz sector, Eadu is known – to the extent it’s known at all – for its rain and native nerf herders. Few suspect the planet is home to a top-secret laboratory where Imperial scientists working for the Tarkin Initiative seek to unlock the secrets of kyber crystals and perfect a terrifying weapon.
Stormtroopers are elite shock troops fanatically loyal to the Empire and impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. They wear imposing white armor, which offers a wide range of survival equipment and temperature controls to allow the soldiers to survive in almost any environment. Stormtroopers wield blaster rifles and pistols with great skill, and attack in hordes to overwhelm their enemies. Along with standard stormtroopers, the Empire has organized several specialized units, including snowtroopers and scout troopers.
