|Chronological and political information|
Tex was an Imperial General during the Rise of the Empire era.
Born on Coruscant, Tex was an only child. His parents were both murdered in a back ally when he was just six years old. He spent a number of years living on the street, and was all to happy to volunteer for a position in the Galectic Empire. A promising student in the art of warfare and armed combat, Tex was quickly promoted and in 15 BBY became a General.
General Tex lead a squad of Stormtroopers including TK-421 on an assassination mission to Sullust in 10 BBY. The Jedi Hiro Syler that the squad were hunting ambushed them and quickly killed most of the starwars:stormtroopers. Tex then tried to throw a thermal detonator at the Jedi, only to have the jedi use the force to throw it back. The detonator narrowly missed Tex, who was decapitated only seconds later by the Jedi's Lightsaber.

The name 'Tex' is a reference to George Lucas's first feature film 'THX-1138'. In the film, the main character (THX-1138) is called 'Tex' as a nickname by his room mate.
Tex is portrayed in the photo novel TK-421: A Stormtroopers Story by the 30th anniversary action figure 'Death Star Trooper', with added armour from the Saga 'Death Star Gunner'.
