Shadow Stormtroopers were specially trained imperial troopers that wore special cloaking armor. They were more dangerous than normal Stormtroopers, and their armor allowed them to blend in with most environments. The Shadow Strormtroopers came from both variations of the Shadow Clone Troopers after Order 66. They were used to confront Galen Marek.
