Description: Shann Childsen was a Human male Imperial officer who served onboard the first Death Star during the Galactic Civil War.
Lieutenant Shann Childsen was an ardent believer in the New Order's anti-alien policies. Childsen particularly disliked such "primitive" species as Wookiees, Talz, and Ewoks. He was known as a bully by his fellow officers, and was demoted after a superior blamed him for a clerical error. However, Lieutenant Childsen's fanatical support of the New Order assisted in his selection as a security officer, and thus saved his career in the Imperial Navy.
In 0 BBY, he was in command of Detention Block AA-23 on the first Death Star when Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca infiltrated the area to rescue Princess Leia Organa, disguised as stormtroopers escorting their Wookiee "prisoner". Childsen was subsequently shot by Luke before he could activate the alarm system, having become suspicious of the stormtroopers due to their escorting a Wookiee to the prison, specifically to Princess Leia's cell.
