Director Krennic is the Imperial Military Director of Security for the Death Star, as well as, Advanced Weapons Research for the Imperial Military…so you can see, he is quite the important person. Maybe that’s why he wears the swanky cape, and dresses in all white.
Krennic is obsessed with the completion of the long-delayed Death Star project, and he will not allow anyone or anything, to get in his way.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Krennic is an overly ambitious Imperial apparatchik who intends to use his squad of Deathtroopers: These guys
To decimate the Rebel uprising and find his way into the Emperor Palpatine’s good graces. He hopes to do all this, while avoiding the wrath of whom he considers his chief rival for the Emperor’s good graces, Darth Vader.
"“The bad guy is a lot more terrifying when he’s really smart, and really effective. There is a lot of palace intrigue going on in the Empire, with people conspiring to move up the ranks and sabotaging each other. There’s not a lot of loyalty there.”"
Something tells me, this isn’t a battle Director Orson Krennic can win. I feel like Krennic is going to rue the day he ever decided to start a rivalry with Darth Vader.
