Stormtroopers were the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Like many other weapons of the Empire, stormtroopers served as ever present reminders of the absolute power of Emperor Palpatine. These faceless enforcers of the New Order were considered an extension of the Emperor's will, and thus they often used brutal tactics as a way to keep thousands of star systems throughout the galaxy in line. At the height of the Empire, stormtroopers had effectively become symbols of brutality and terror. With few exceptions, they were distinguished from all other military units by their signature white armor.

The Imperial stormtroopers were the evolution of the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. By the end of the Clone Wars in 19 BBY, the Galactic Republic was reorganized into the first Galactic Empire. As a result, the Grand Army was reformed into the Stormtrooper Corps, thus renaming all clone troopers as "stormtroopers." Under the Empire, stormtroopers operated alongside Imperial Army and Navy units, while some placed on Naval ships were given the title "marines." Although stormtroopers served under Stormtrooper Command, a military agency that was independent from Imperial High Command, all stormtroopers ultimately answered to Emperor Palpatine with unconditional loyalty and subservience.

Members of the Rebel Alliance SpecForce had several terms for stormtroopers, including whitehats, plastic soldiers and snowmen. Other slang terms for stormtroopers were the "Boys in White" and "Plastic Boys." Graydon Strykia often referred to Stormtroopers as “Genetic Rejects” or “Carbon Clones,” in reference to how all clones looked alike.

Although the deaths of both Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader in 4 ABY caused the collapse and fragmentation of the original Galactic Empire, stormtroopers were retained as elite soldiers under several succeeding states, such as the Imperial Remnant, the Second Imperium, and the Empire of the Hand. By the year 138 ABY, stormtroopers still existed in two Imperial states: the Galactic Empire of Darth Krayt and the "Empire" of Roan Fel.
