Description: Sheckil was a Human male hailing from the Mandalorian planet Concord Dawn and the twin brother of a famous mercenary. A former warrant officer on his homeworld, Sheckil served the Galactic Empire as a lieutenant during the Galactic Civil War. In early 3 ABY, in the wake of the Battle of Hoth, Sheckil accompanied the Dark Lord Darth Vader and a stormtrooper occupation force during the clandestine seizure of the Bespin mining colony of Cloud City in a scheme to capture Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and, ultimately, Luke Skywalker of the Rebel Alliance. The Empire forced city Baron Administrator Lando Calrissian into accepting a deal in which the Empire would not permanently occupy Cloud City in return for Calrissian's compliance in helping to apprehend the Rebels.
The responsibility fell to Sheckil during the occupation to ensure Vader's command that the stormtrooper detachment remain out of sight until Vader himself was ready to seize the Rebels. However, the plan went awry when the Rebels' protocol droid, C-3PO, unexpectedly happened upon the hidden position of an Imperial squad, which then blasted the droid into bits. Sheckil retrieved the dismantled droid at Vader's order and presented its blasted pieces to the Dark Lord, who instantly recognized it as the same droid he had once constructed in his childhood. Although Vader ordered Sheckil to first have the droid destroyed, he later countermanded his decision by instructing the lieutenant to return C-3PO to the Rebels' Wookiee companion, Chewbacca, thus paying respect to a lesson of responsibility he had learned while first building the droid. However, the mysterious moral was lost on Sheckil.
Following Vader's planned capture of the Rebels, Sheckil fell prisoner himself upon attempting to escort the princess, the Wookiee, and the still-dismantled C-3PO to Vader's ship. Calrissian defied his Imperial occupiers by organizing a team of his Bespin Wing Guards into a surprise ambush of Sheckil and four accompanying stormtroopers, placing them in Cloud City captivity and helping his newfound Rebel companions to escape from Bespin.
Personality and traits
Lieutenant Sheckil, a former warrant officer on his homeworld of Concord Dawn, originally earned a promotion due to his stellar performance. During his service with the Imperial Military, he was trained to safely transport dangerous criminals and political prisoners, and specialized in the transporting of high-profile criminals. Sheckil held a command role during the Empire's Bespin occupation of 3 ABY, serving directly under Darth Vader; however, his service on Cloud City was marred by constant failure. Although Vader instructed Sheckil to keep his men out of sight as Han Solo and the rest of the Millennium Falcon's passengers arrived in the city, one of the occupation force's stormtrooper squads was unable to avoid having C-3PO inadvertently stumble upon its position, in which case the stormtroopers simply blasted the droid into pieces. Sheckil angrily derided his men as "imbeciles" for having done so. Later, Sheckil failed to have his men carry out the Dark Lord's order to destroy C-3PO's dismantled body; and, finally, following Solo's carbon-freeze, Lando Calrissian and his guardsmen foiled Sheckil's efforts to escort the captive Princess Leia Organa and Chewbacca to Vader's waiting shuttle, after which Sheckil himself became a prisoner in the Imperial-controlled city.
Sheckil demonstrated a certain difference in perspective from the Dark Lord during the Cloud City occupation. Although the lieutenant credited luck for the Empire reaching Bespin ahead of the damaged Millennium Falcon, thus allowing Vader time to weave his trap for the Rebels, Vader denounced Sheckil's analysis, declaring that luck had nothing to do with their journey. Later, after a reminiscent Vader recalled his mother's lesson of responsibility during his childhood and ordered the dismantled C-3PO be returned to the Wookiee, Sheckil was clearly confused and did not understand the Dark Lord's mysterious reversal.
Once Sheckil's group intercepted Luke Skywalker while escorting the Rebel prisoners through Cloud City to Vader's ship, the lieutenant ordered his stormtroopers to open fire on the intruder and immediately moved to take hold of the princess. He held her form in front of himself, using her as a Human shield until he could move out of range of the immediate danger that Skywalker presentedâ€”a certain departure from the Imperial tenets of honor and bravery. Sheckil had blond hair, blue eyes, and light skin.
Lieutenant Sheckil wore the standard-issue Imperial officer's uniform during the Empire's occupation of Cloud City. He frequently utilized a handheld comlink to manage the occupation force and keep Darth Vader apprised of developments.
