Here are some of the main Shadow Force Leaders, droids, and key personel ...
About this creation
The Shadow Force has become more organized lately ... by expanding and improving their command, control, and communication structure ( SF-C3 division ) with the addition of some new Lego characters. The combined talents of these new Leaders has proved to be very successful ... and with "The Dark One's" sinister guidance, the Shadow Force has become even more powerful than ever before !
They have also recruited a few more stormtroopers and former officers of the Empire. The Shadow Force now has 6 officers , 6 Imperial pilots, and 24 more stormtroopers incorporated into their ranks ! They also have 2 new robotic technicians ... highly trained in droid programming, construction, and repairs. To assist them in their tasks, each robotic technician has 2 protocol droids at their disposal.
Here's a close-up of some young Sith Students ... this is what a typical group looks like.
The Dark One ... an ancient Anzati and Sith Lord ... a mysterious figure to be sure, individuals of the Anzati race are described as "vampire-like" ... and have an impressive lifespan that can last well over a millennium ! Nobody is sure of his true age, but throughout his lifetime, "The Dark One" had been a Jedi Knight once, who fell to the dark side and became a Dark Jedi that exercised his Anzati assassin skills, and later became a Sith Warlord . In his quest for more knowledge, power, and immortality ... "The Dark One" also learned the regenerative ways and magical mysteries of the Rodar Wizards of Perdonis and Sith arcane magic.
Darth Oblivion ... a Rodar Wizard and Sith Warlord ... instructed by "The Dark One", and trained in the ways of the Rodar Wizards of ancient Perdonis ... this Sith Lord is not restricted by "the rule of two" ... thus allowing him to train and lead many Sith Warriors , and to raise any that fall in battle as an undead minion.
Rellikx ... a Duinuogwuin Assassin and Bounty Hunter ... Born as a vile reptilian offspring of two captive Duinuogwuin's, and as a result of years of genetic research and experimentation ... it was nurtured, raised, and trained under supervision of "The Dark One". Rellikx is endowed with supernatural intelligence and cunning, powerful muscles and agility, blaster-proof scales, and excretes a toxic saliva which makes anyone he bites to become temporarily paralyzed. Rellikx can also survive in the vacuum of deep space for weeks - or even months - at a time, by going into a self induced hibernated state.
General Vengence ... Battle Droid Commander ... similar in appearance to General Grievous, this highly trained Kaleesh Warrior / General was cyborgnetically enhanced after being injured in an assassination attempt ... his military record, tactical expertise, and his Loyalty to The Shadow Force makes the cost of his cyborgnetic surgery worth every Galactic Credit.
hmm ... still thinking about something to say about her ... this minifig is a new one.
Darren Star ... Dark Jedi / Shadow Force Spy ... often disguised as a rebel pilot, and highly skilled in infiltration tactics ... this Shadow Force Spy is tasked with stealing enemy Starships, Fighters, and Top Secret Data. He is often accompanied by his astromech droid - which assists him in completing his missions.
Darren Star's astromech droid ... more info to come later.
Galaxy Jane ... Shadow Force Fleet Commander ... originally from the Hapes Sector, and reknown as a fearsome Space Pirate throughout the galaxy - "Galaxy Jane" greatly enhances the Shadow Force Fleet with her space-faring knowledge, her space-combat tactics, and her pirating experience.
Bloody Phoenix ... a Twe'lik Dancer and Assassin ... as a young Twe'lik, she was sold as a slave, and danced for a cruel master. After months of abuse, she eventually snapped and had "disposed" of him in a most gruesome way before escaping ... but soon after, she found herself "wanted" on the holonet. Desperate to "dissapear" from authorities, she "bought" her way onto a freighter heading to Nar Shaddaa. Once there, she went "into hiding" by changing her name several times ... earned credits by dancing at several clubs and cantina's ... and eventually joined an assassination's guild (with the credits she earned) mainly just to learn how to defend herself, but excelled in her lessons at an impressive rate. Unbeknownst to anyone though (including herself), she was Force-sensitive ... which is why she was so good. News of her skills eventally led to "job offers" (Lol) ... by that i mean a "bounty jobs" ... Naturally, she would pose as a Twe'lik Dancer ... get in close to her target ... and later, when the party was over ... "SLIT" ... She often used a vibroblade, because it was silent and deadly ... (still editing) ... advanced training as an assassin, and a starpilot.
(name here) ... Smuggler and Starpilot ... before joining The Shadow Force, this guy was a smuggler and a starpilot. Stories of his bold and successful adventures eventually made their way to Shadow Force Intelligence ... and later, Shadow Force Recruitment made contact with him. Now employed as an "independant freelancer", he continues to travel the galaxy as he did before ... but now on secret missions - discreetly collecting supplies, personel, and items for the Shadow Force.
C-3PU ... assistant SF-C3 programmer and translator ... umm, still editing here also.
R4-Z9 ... astromech droid ... boasting an impressive array of internal memory, R4-Z9 is capable of storing 16 sets of hyperjump coordinates ! R4-Z9's primary operational function is to compile and download hyperspace data into all other Shadow Force Astromech droids. Designed to resist ion blasts, built with hardened electronics, safeguarded with password protected files, and armed with an agressive Spybot scanning program ... R4-Z9 is also tasked with detecting any Astromech Droids that either does not belong to the Shadow Force ( ie. ... enemy droids) ... or to identify friendly droids that might have been unknowingly captured and released ~ after being infected with corrupt files, viruses, trojans, etc. ... designed to either steal Shadow Force data, or to wreak havok on the Shadow Force Network. R4-Z9 is also protected with a thick layer of black cortosis paint.
C-4PK ... bodyguard / protocol droid ... coated in shiney laser-reflective (LR) golden armor, with an undercoating of cortosis primer paint ... C-4PK appears to be a normal protocol droid, but has been modified to allow greater mobility and speed . C-4PK has been programmed in the same manner as C-3PX ... Darth Maul's former protocol droid ... in order to perform it's bodyguard duties for whomever he may be assigned to protect ... and to translate when needed.
Here's a group photo of 3 types of protocol droids the Shadow Force currently uses, so that you can see the difference.
First of all, Miggy is wrong about the chrome Vader, I have the TIE Advanced, and the only "special features" are Vader's more detailed body, and a silver lightsaber handle, which I swapped with a regular handle, and gave to my Jedi sigfig. Now, back to the Shadow Force. This is big, and really cool. Are they part of the Imperial Forces? Also, you should get one of the white protocols from the Hoth Rebel Base set, and the block one from the Death Star set.
