Sandtroopers are based on the appearances of the stormtroopers deployed on Tatooine in Star Wars: A New Hope. Their armor is dirtier, grittier, and more torn than standard stormtrooper armor, which tends to be shiny and pristine. They are also equipped with a backpack and a pauldron.

- "Migrant by nature or perhaps necessity, humans fearlessly explored the vastness of space to find places they could call their own under their own terms, making them the most predominant species in the galaxy. While the planet they originally hail from is still debated, the Core World Coruscant is widely considered the human homeworld. As clone troopers were gradually phased out in favor of human conscripts, many more humans went through rigorous trooper training on Coruscant and at Imperial Academies throughout the galaxy to serve their Emperor with unquestionable loyalty."
