Juno is one of the most sympathetic characters who have devoted their careers to the Empire. Although she was assigned to be Galen "Starkiller" Marek's pilot because she didn't have the stomach for the brutal, genocidal tactics being used against the last of the Jedi, she is still in many ways a true believer and Imperial loyalist. The Empire gave her a lot she wouldn't have otherwise had: a sense of family, a job where her technical prowess is respected, a position of respect and authority. Juno was more than just a love interest for Vader's apprentice: she was a window into the psychology of the Empire's career men and women. Interestingly, Juno Eclipse was originally the name proposed for the character that ultimately became the canonical female Dathomirian Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress, but was rejected for not sounding villainous enough.
