Grotto is a fictional character featured in the Star Wars multimedia franchise. He was featured only in the Marvel Comics Star Wars series and appeared in Star Wars, Volume 1 #63.

Overview Edit

Grotto was the proper name of a less-than-competent Imperial stormtrooper stationed at an outpost on Krake's Planet.

Biography Edit

Grotto had a close working relationship with another trooper named Turk. Turk however, seemed to spend most of his time repeatedly telling his friend to "Shaddup". When Darth Vader learned that Luke Skywalker had infiltrated the base in order to steal vital information concerning the identity of an agent named Shira Brie, he ordered Grotto and Turk to seize him "dead or alive". Grotto's unit found Skywalker downloading information from a databank in the kitchen area of the base and opened fire on him. Luke and his friend Chewbacca retaliated by attacking the troopers directly. Grotto opened fire on Skywalker, but Luke grabbed Turk and used him as a shield against Grotto’s blaster fire. After discarding Turk's body, Luke opened fire and blasted Grotto in the chest, killing him.

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Turk and Grotto were lampoons of two other Michelinie characters. In the 1980s, the Marvel Comics series, Daredevil, regularly featured two incompetent snitches named Turk and Grotto who frequently found themselves staring into the business-end of Daredevil’s billy-club. Like his Stormtrooper counterpart, Turk was often telling Grotto to "Shaddup".
