During his long life Chewbacca has been many things: Wookiee warrior, ace smuggler and rebel hero. Chewie fought with the Republic on Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars, then befriended Han Solo while in Imperial captivity on Mimban. After adventures on Vandor and Kessel, he became Han’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, and eventually helped the Alliance restore freedom to the galaxy. Known for his short temper and accuracy with a bowcaster, Chewie also had a big heart – and unflagging loyalty to his friends. He stuck with Han through years of turmoil, and flew the Falcon alongside Rey after the Corellian’s death.
Formally known as Imperial swamp troopers, mudtroopers are part of the Imperial Army, whose infantry is gradually being phased out in favor of stormtroopers. Mudtroopers wear partial armor, augmented with respiratory gear and sealed bodysuits for combat in unhealthy environments such as Mimban. Han Solo served as a corporal with the 224th Imperial Armored Division, a new incarnation of the Mud Jumpers of the Clone Wars.
Mimban’s valuable minerals have made this muddy world a battlefield since the Clone Wars. Then, the Republic was fighting Separatist droids; now, the Imperial Army seeks to destroy Mimbanese insurgents. After getting kicked out of the Imperial Academy, Han Solo found himself dumped on Mimban as a mudtrooper. While there Han met an Imperial prisoner named Chewbacca, an encounter that would change his life.
Red-skinned subterranean dwellers, the Mimbanese once fought alongside Republic clone troopers against the Separatists. Now, they are battling for their planet’s future against the Empire. Imperial mining operations have devastated Mimban’s climate and cleared vast stretches of rain forest, leaving muddy plains behind. The Mimbanese use the mud as camouflage, ambushing Imperial soldiers with improvised and scavenged weapons.
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.
