StormElite Foreign Volunteer Soldiers

One year prior the Battle of Yavin, the StormElite was set aside by Moff Adrian
Krel as an Imperial military elite for ethnic Core World humans alone. Yet, when
the premise and elite status of the StormElite fell apart after the Battle of Endor,
the SE unlocked it's racial gates and accepted non-ethnic humans into the StormElite.

Most volunteer units were used to fight partisans towards the end of the Galactic
Civil War, when the true Empire was retreating backwards in attemps to defend
Coruscant from the New Republic. The foreign volunteers fought on planets with little
to sometimes no chance of survival, but died knowing they were helping a cause they
supported.

Outlaying areas that became part of the SE Foreign Volunteer organization were used
as front-line soldiers until the eventual destruction of the StormElite in +18. In
total, 23 divisions saw combat out of the foreign volunteers, most of which being
volunteer repulsor grenadier units that assisted ethnic-human SE repulsor divisions
in the Commonwealth Sector.

In reality, foreign volunteer units were second-rate fighters when compared to the
ethnic-humans of the regular StormElite. Abandoned by an Empire they swore to defend,
they were eventually killed off in large numbers either in battle, or executed as war
crimes violators at the hands of the New Republic.

Uniforms for an SE foreign volunteer soldier are very diverse, due to the vast amounts
of terrain that the foreign volunteers operated among. Typically, a field gray tunic,
trousers, helmet and pullover camouflage garment are issued to the volunteer soldier.
Collar patches differed from the regular StormElite, as Krel didn't think the "lesser
humans" deserved the 'SE' insignia on their tunic. The Imperial Emblem was used on
volunteer units collar patches instead.

  generation 98k.
