Clad in ornate crimson armor, these warriors guarded Supreme Leader Snoke, ready to meet any threat with a savage response. The Guard consisted of eight sentinels divided into four pairs, with each pair brandishing unique weapons. Their red armor was a deliberate echo of that worn by Emperor Palpatine’s royal protectors. The Guard attacked Kylo Ren and Rey after the death of Snoke, with all eight falling in battle.
The Supreme Leader of the First Order, the mysterious Snoke has no permanent base of operations, preferring to contact his underlings from a mobile command post. Snoke is powerful with the dark side of the Force, and seduced Ben Solo into abandoning the Jedi path to become his apprentice. But Snoke also commands General Hux and the technological war machine the First Order has engineered to destroy the New Republic and Leia Organa’s Resistance. Snoke used the Force to connect Ben and Rey in hopes of finding Luke Skywalker’s planet of exile. His plan succeeded, but Ben turned on him, cleaving him in two with Skywalker’s lightsaber.
