Empire of the Hand

this was one splinter of the Imperial Remnant, known for its exceptionally well-trained stormtroopers. The tenets of the Empire of the Hand were originally set down by Grand Admiral Thrawn, and many of its legions still paid homage to Thrawn and his doctrines many years after his death. Although still ostensibly beholden to the Imperial Remnant, the Empire of the Hand was formed on Nirauan, without the bigotry and hatred of Emperor Palpatine. Officers of the Empire of the Hand were distinguished from other Imperial officers by the rings of black and red trim on the cuffs and collars of their uniforms. Despite the fact that the tenets of the Empire of the Hand came from Thrawn, the Chiss people were not part of their empire, and many Chiss hated the fact that they existed. However, the Empire of the Hand accepted the Chiss' opinion and went on with its business. Member worlds were admitted to the Empire of the Hand regardless of their population's race, and alliances were formed so that all worlds were equally protected by the military forces of the empire. The fact that the name of this new government was the Empire of the Hand was as much a historical reference to the founders' Imperial roots as it was a way to maintain the psychological impact of the old Empire. The soldiers of the Empire of the Hand even wore stormtrooper armor, since it continued to be a deterrent to most rebellious or criminal activity. At some point during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the Empire of the Hand seemed to disappear, and their base on Nirauan was abandoned.
