Nemesis – Emperor’s Hand

Imperial Forces

Imperial Military – The military arm of the Galactic Empire is a vast, seemingly infinite engine of oppression and destruction capable of maintaining an iron-fisted rule throughout the whole of the known galaxy. Only portions of the Outer Rim Territories escape its reach, and even these remote areas are still under threat. While most regard the military as one enormous, monolithic entity, the truth is there are many arms, several of which enjoy vigorous, even bitter, rivalries with one another. Perhaps the most iconic of the Imperial militaries is the Imperial Navy, responsible for policing the incomprehensibly vast reaches of space in between civilized planets and systems. The Navy is best represented by the Star Destroyer, the very symbol of the Empire’s power and a ship capable of blockading a planet completely on its own by sheer dint of its firepower and complement of troops and vehicles.

Less prominent, but still widely feared, is the Imperial Army, which many erroneously believe includes the independent Stormtrooper Corps. The Army and its subsidiaries are responsible for all operations conducted on the surface of a planet, including the maintenance of Imperial garrisons and operations conducted under the direction of planetary governors, sector Moffs, and Grand Moffs. Just as the Navy has a vast array of starships at its command, the Army possesses an almost infinite variety of vehicles and troops that are suitable for virtually any environment known to the galaxy.

From Edge of the Empire

One of the Emperor’s Hands would be the most horrifying, panic-inducing opponent that an individual could face – if anyone knew that the Emperor’s Hands existed. Fortunately for the Hands, however, they are completely unknown to the galaxy at large and, in many cases, even to each other; more than one member of the Hands believes that he or she is the only Emperor’s Hand, which is how the Emperor prefers his operatives to operate. The Emperor’s Hands operate in absolute secrecy, often sent on missions by the Emperor himself. Members of the Emperor’s Hands almost invariably possess Force abilities and the will to use them.
