Artefacts of Old
The Emperors Hand is an Assassin trained by the Dark Council to fulfill the wishes of the Sith Emperor himself. Few citizens of the Empire ever achieve such a life, and many find it hard to leave it. The Emperors hand is never usually the only one in existence. Indeed most Emperors hands start there careers by tracking down another of the emperors hands. Only the dark council and the emperor know how many hands exist. Emperors hands are normally non force sensitive individuals who have shown such loyalty to the Emperor and skill in there tasks that they have peaked the dark councils interest. the difference from a regular soldier is that only the Dark Council is aware of his true skill, and endeavours to stay loyal to the Emperor without revealing the said Loyalty to his enemies.
