Description: Daine Jir was a bold and outspoken 501st Legion stormtrooper officer, serving under Darth Vader aboard the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator as a commander during the hunt for the stolen Death Star plans in 0 BBY. Jirâ€”part of a family that had donated a genetic template for the Imperial stormtrooper development programâ€”started out as a combat stormtrooper in the 501st, but later proved himself to be a competent and ruthless officer. However, many suspected he would not last long under Vader's command after he called one of the Dark Lord's decisions into doubt. Vader was impressed with Jir's brutal honesty, and promoted him instead of killing him.
In 0 BBY, Jir led a contingent of the 501st in an attack on the CR90 corvette Tantive IV, on which Vader believed Senator Leia Organa had received transmissions containing the Death Star plans. The 501st picked off the Rebel forces aboard the ship and captured Organa, but despite a thorough search of the corvette no trace of the plans could be found. Jir was tasked with destroying the ship and alerting the Imperial Senate that it had been lost in a meteorite strike.
Personality and traits
Daine Jir was a bold and outspoken man, known to question the decisions of his superiors when he saw fault in them. Unlike most, he was not afraid of Darth Vader and his Force powers, and he often called his judgment into question while on missions with the Dark Lord. However, Jir was thought to be a model Imperial officer, as he could follow orders explicitly when he saw the sense in them, and he usually accepted Vader's explanation after asking him about his planned course of action. Diligent, ruthless, and efficient, Jir cared about the troopers under his command, and kept them in top fighting condition through constant simulators and training.
