Silent and foreboding, the Imperial Royal Guard (sometimes called “Emperor's Royal Guard”) preceded the Emperor from his Lambda-class shuttle upon its arrival on the second Death Star, located above the sanctuary moon of Endor. And seen again guarding the turbo-lift in the Emperor's Throne Room prior to Luke Skywalker's arrival, the presence of the Royal Guard is a sign foreboding power that should be feared.
“Resplendent in crimson robes and armor, the Imperial Royal Guard protected the Emperor. Secrecy shrouded the Guard, with rumors abounding about the sentinels' backgrounds and combat capabilities.” -- Starwars.com describes the Royal Guard.
Unlike any other character in the Original Trilogy, the Royal Guard’s vivid red color is impossible to ignore. Their ability is never tested, but their position as the Emperor’s Guard implies an adeptness and skill that is unparalleled amongst other Imperial fighting forces.
The helmet of the Imperial Royal Guard is a simple, one-piece design with an artistic flair; in stark contrast to the more mechanically functional helmets of Stormtroopers, Scout Troopers, and Snowtroopers. The eloquent design speaks to wealth, power, and form-over-function; a true representation of the opulent tastes of Emperor Palpatine.
