The Imperial Commandos of Knightwatch are made up solely of former Clone Troopers and Clone Commanders who performed exceptionally during the Clone Wars. Due to the unacceptable rate of rejection of Order 66 by altered Clone castes, like the ARCs, Null-ARCs, and Republic Commandos, it was decided only Troopers and Commanders would be used in the operation to ensure the highest levels of loyalty and adherence to all orders.
Knightwatch Commandos are the back bone of the operation. Fiercely loyal and exceptional in combat, each one has proven himself throughout the Clone Wars as exemplary.
Knightwatch Commandos are equipped with modified stealth variant Katarn-class armor and standard DC-17m blasters.
