The 501st Legion

We are Vader's Fist, we are the Five Hundred and First!


The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

Empire

Peace * Order * Justice

Following the rise of the Galactic Empire, the 501st transitioned into a stormtrooper unit, like other clone units. Given new armor and weapons, the 501st faithfully served the Empire, operating under the direct command of the Sith Lord Darth Vader. After the Battle of Kamino, the 501st became the last remnant of the Grand Army of the Republic fully composed of Jango Fett clones, as opposed to the ever-growing and more diverse Stormtrooper Corps, where the Fett clones became a minority, with the inclusion of a pool of clones from different templates and birth-born recruits, while others were not clones, but humans from an Imperial academy.

The legion fought in a number of battles during the Galactic Civil War in an effort to defeat the Rebel Alliance and bring peace to the galaxy, although the Alliance ultimately triumphed. Though the 501st was disbanded after the Battle of Endor, the Chiss Grand Admiral Thrawn resurrected the designation by forming a new 501st Legion. He also added more diverse recruits to the 501st, including non-Humans. The reconstituted 501st was stationed in the Unknown Regions, where they protected Thrawn's Empire of the Hand. Over a century later, the legion was in the service of a new Empire, by then under the rule of Emperor Roan Fel.

The motto of the Galactic Empire, "Peace, Order, Justice". And yet they were still the bad guys. I guess it depends on your point of view who the bad guys and good guys are. After all, from the Imperials point of view, the Rebels were the real troublemakers...

I guess they both had a different definition of freedom, the Imperial definition of it was freedom from corruption due to complete intergalactic domination (no room for those who opposed the order of the Empire) which insured safety and security for their people. The Rebel definition was freedom to do what they want, even if what they wanted was bad to begin with. All I can say is it would take one heck of a figure to be the Emperor of an Empire to take on a grand task like that...

Anyways, how exactly do you add music (automatically plays wen you come to profile like here) and a background pic to your profile page? I see it on mods all the time and group pages like this but can you do it on your personal profile? Just curious.

Lol. XD

Anyways, as I said, it depends on your point of view.

In the Emperor's eyes, that weapon would ensure peace and order by keeping everyone in line. Would you want to rebel knowing your planet would be blown up if you did? If your loyal to the Emperor, than what is there to worry about?

There's something to think about.
