I am in the process of reading a book for the VEDJ intitled: Star Wars - Young Jedi Knight - Lightsabers. At Chapter 12 I can across an excellent Stormtrooper story that I think reminds everyone of their first time being in the ranks of the Empire as a new recruit in the Stormtrooper Corps.
So I'd like to submit this chapter of my story to the Stormtrooper Academy
Broad shouldered Norys, former leader of Lost Ones gang and new storm trooper trainee, spread his white armor on a bunk in front of him. He studied the pieces carefully, then began to assemble the glossy outfit, donning the components one at a time-and enjoying every minute of it.
The boots went on first, stiff and sturdy. Then the greaves, the shin armor, the leg plates, body armor, arm plates, and finally the flexible but tough gloves. He felt as if he had been transplanted into the body of an assassin droid, a fighting machine in case an impenetrable shell.
Norys allowed himself a satisfied smile. This was much more impressive than anything his gang members had ever scrounged deep in the decaying alleys of Coruscant's underworld. He had been the toughest, meanest, angriest young brute of all the gang members But being a stormtrooper was better... so much better.
All of his former companions were also soldier recruits undergoing training. Norys fully expected to be the best among the troops, just as he had been toughest among the Lost Ones.
On the downside, he was no longer his own boss, free to do as he wished. He had to follow the orders of the Second Imperium. But with armor such as this and the military might of those who followed their emperor, it was all worth it. Besides, if Norys proved himself valuable enough, is rank would increase, and he'd be placed in command of more soldiers, maybe even a Tie fighter. Without a doubt, he would have more power and cause much more damaged and he'd ever imagined when he was just a gang leader.
Things were looking up.
Now he was someone to be reckoned with: a stormtrooper...
