Name: Standard SBR Trooper
Tier: Middle 3
Background: The Shield Brothers of the Republic was an initiative created by Palpatine in order to bring the Republic worlds most critical to his plans under what was pseudo-Marshal Law. The troopers that would compose the SBR were far more loyal than Clone Troopers, and would quite literally do anything for Chancellor Palpatine and the Republic. The SBR were noted by Director of Communications Axis to be remarkably similar to Stormtroopers, especially given their Phase 3 Armour and their E-11 Blasters.
The Shield Brothers of the Republic were in-fact the cause for the Kaminoan Rebellion in the first place, with the cloners deciding they could not produce an army that would potentially be used against them, which would be the equivalent to making their own jailors. Of course, Kamino was eventually placed under Marshal Law anyway, and the SBR fulfilled their purpose of keeping a very close eye on their creators, and others.

Weaknesses: Unless faced with impossible odds, the SBR Trooper will not give up, ready to fight and die for the Republic. This, while terrifying, is not always to their favour. Knowing the SBR Troopers are not likely to give up, one could set up a trap-like combat scenario where their numbers are depleted due to sheer loyalty. SBR Troopers are the new face of the Republic defence, and as such, are deployed in large numbers to defend key planets. With this in mind, one can cause the SBR Troopers to focus on defending their objectives and key points, and this can prove disastrous if used to trap and kill them. SBR Troopers follow orders to the exact letter. As such, if one were able to fake SBR Trooper orders through deception, they would likely follow them to the exact word unless the orders were blatantly damaging to the Republic’s goals.
