While many ARC troopers remained with the GAR, some joined the empires forces. Some began training the empires commando teams while others were given a far more important task; eliminating the Jedi. Already well known for their brutal efficiency, they quickly gained a near mythical status among the younglings. Tales of unwary Jedi/padawans spirited away by these ruthless monsters which weren't far from the truth. ARC stormtroopers sometimes kidnapped Jedi with high value intel, often torturing them for days until they broke but usually they treated them as prey. Hunting them, toying with them, letting them tire before moving in for the kill. Like most hunters they would take a trophy of their kill, sometimes a personal item, a piece of equipment or in the case of padawans they would take their braid, but they would always take their lightsaber. They were allowed to keep these weapons as the empire had no use for them. Wearing their trophies for all to see they raised the morale of the empires forces and struck fear into the hearts of any Jedi unfortunate enough to encounter them. Many Jedi would lose control and attack in a blind rage when they saw their friends lightsabers worn by these monsters, leading to their defeat and another trophy claimed.
This former ARC captain is on assignment hunting a small group of Jedi that were on an aid mission in the outer rim. With their master dead and his lightsaber taken, it's only a matter of time before he adds their weapons to his quickly growing collection.
my scanner just butchers the colours on these pics and I'm too technically retarded to do anything about it.
