GALACTIC CIVIL WAR
When the Empire established operations on the Forest Moon of Endor, it paid little attention to the native Ewoks, considering them a primitive species that posed no threat. But the Imperials would pay dearly for that arrogant assessment. When the Empire captured the rebel strike team assigned to destroy the shield generator defending the Death Star, the Ewoks rose up against the Imperials. Though armed only with bows and spears, they used their knowledge of the forests to great effect, ambushing stormtroopers and constructing traps that brought down scout walkers. Without these furry warriors’ aid, the second Death Star would never have been destroyed.
As you enter the darkened canopy of Endor's primeval forests, you may hear the rhythmic beating of tribal drums emanating from high above. This is the domain of the native Ewoks, diminutive arboreal beings who call Endor their home. Though they have yet to master advanced technology, they have nonetheless erected impressive villages high within the Endor trees. The Ewoks use a combination of rope ladders, swinging vines, and wooden catwalks to ascend to their lofty homes. There, carved into the living trees are simple huts with thatched roofs and animal skin curtains for doors. The largest huts are reserved for such Ewok potentates as the chief, the medicine man, and the Council of Elders.
Secluded in a remote corner of the galaxy, the forest moon of Endor would easily have been overlooked by history were it not for the decisive battle that occurred there. The lush, forest home of the Ewok species is the gravesite of Darth Vader and the Empire itself. It was here that the Rebel Alliance won its most crucial victory over the Galactic Empire.
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.
Princess Leia Organa was one of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leaders, fearless on the battlefield and dedicated to ending the tyranny of the Empire. Daughter of Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, sister of Luke Skywalker, and with a soft spot for scoundrels, Leia ranks among the galaxy’s great heroes.
C-3PO is a droid programmed for etiquette and protocol, built by the heroic Jedi Anakin Skywalker, and a constant companion to astromech R2-D2. Over the years, he was involved in some of the galaxy’s most defining moments and thrilling battles -- and is fluent in over six million forms of communication.
Wicket W. Warrick was the brave young Ewok who willingly joined the Rebellion and aided in the battle against the Empire on the forest moon of Endor. Even before he encountered the Rebels, Wicket had devised methods for defeating the Imperial machines, plans which were implemented after the Ewok befriended Princess Leia and recruited his tribe to the Alliance's cause. During the Battle of Endor, Wicket fought valiantly alongside his new allies.
