Important Note: In case it wasn't obvious, this article is about the Dark Side version of the Republic Trooper, not the more commonly seen Light Side version, who is nothing like his/her Dark Side counterpart.

The Havoc Squad Commander was a Republic Trooper active during the Cold War between the Republic and the Sith Emperor. Though normally seen as a Light Side individual, it is possible to play as a Dark Side Trooper, and said version of the character frequently displays brutal, violent, sadistic, and sociopathic tendencies, often beeing needlessly violent and brutal, even when not being ordered to by superior officers (who will sometimes order the committing of morally questionable acts).  The Havoc Squad Commander was prone to committing war crimes, such as murdering opponents who had already surrendered and abusing their power in various ways, including extorting from non-combatant civilians.
