MINISTRY OF WAR



Minister of War

Charged with overseeing all military matters and directing the armed forces of the Sith Empire, the Imperial Minister of War is one of the most senior officials in the Imperial government.  The War Minister sits at the very pinnacle of the Imperial military hierarchy, establishing military policy, issuing orders to subordinate units, and balancing the needs of the Sith.  Prior to the dissolution of the Dark Council and the ascension of Darth Acina as Empress of the Sith, the War Minister reported directly to the Dark Councillors in charge of the spheres of Defense of the Empire, Military Offense, and Military Strategy.

Khun Tazith
Special Advisor to the Minister of War
Status: Unknown, Presumed Deceased

A veteran of the Great Galactic War, where he founded and commanded the notorious Bane Brigade.  As tensions between the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic began to escalate during the Cold War, Tazith was recalled from retirement by Darth Vengean to serve as special advisor to the Minister of War.  Dispacted to Hoth, where Imperial forces had forced Republic troops to committ resources to an unwinnable war scenario, Tazith resurrected the legend of the since defeated Bane Brigade to lure elite Republic and Jedi forces to the planet.  Tazith recruited Imperial heroes in this endevour and sought to spring a trap on the elite Republic forces lured to the planet.




Moffs

Answering directly to the Minister of War are the moffs, senior military leaders and territorial governors who enforce the War Minister's directives and rule over entire sectors of Imperial space.  Ranking above the admirals and generals of the Imperial military, the moffs exercise command authority over both ground and naval forces assigned to their units or sectors.  Unlike lower ranking military personnel, the uniforms worn by moffs are much more diverse, often reflecting previous achievements or current command responsibilities.  This elite class of the Imperial military hierarchy traces its roots back to Odile Vaiken, the first Grand Moff of the Sith Empire who served in the period following the Great Hyperspace War.


Grand Moff Ilyan Regus
Commander, Operation Dark Ice (formerly)
Status: Unknown

Promoted shortly after the demise of his predecessor, Grand Moff Kilran, Regus is known as an unwavering traditionalist and Imperial patriot.  He prescribes to the belief of the superiority of humans and Sith Purebloods over other species, and eagerly works toward the defeat of the Galactic Republic, the Empire's oldest enemy.  After his promotion, Regus deployed to Ilum with Darth Arho to procure large quantities of Adegan crystals in a bold strategy to develop stealth technology for the Imperial armada.  Following the betrayal of Darth Malgus, Regus convened a special war council on Ilum and led the Imperial effort to confront Malgus' treason.

Grand Moff Rycus Kilran
Commander, Imperial Fifth Fleet
Status: DECEASED

A famed Imperial hero of the last war, Kilran is most well known for his role in the Sacking of Coruscant.  In the Cold War, Kilran initiated skirmish operations against the Republic in a series of small provocations.  Kilran and his Fifth Fleet made a stand against Republic heroes at an Imperial prison on the Maelstrom Nebula, where Kilran guarded the incarcerated Revan under orders from Darth Malgus.  It was in the prison that the "Butcher of Coruscant" finally met his end, bravely fending off a Republic rescue.  Kilran's legacy has continued to inspire a generation of Imperial military personnel as they struggle to fend off the Republic and claim victory in the galaxy for the Empire.

IMPERIAL ARMY


General Arkos Rakton
Sphere of Military Strategy
Status: Unknown

Celebrated as one of the Empire's greatest strategists and military commanders.  General Rakton's career was unique in that he had never lost a battle prior to his defeat at the hands of the Republic's elite Havoc Squad at the Battle of Corellia.  Rakton is an ardent beiever in Imperial ideals, and unlike his Sith superiors, he is a perfect soldier, forbidding assaults on civilians and always considering the welfare of his troops.

General Adele Konya
Commander, Black Hole campaign
Status: Unknown

Another veteran of the Battle of Corellia, having participated in many of the critical battles of the Empire's campaign to conquer the planet.  After the Empire's defeat, Konya led a campaign to seize hypermatter stores for the Imperial fleet in the Black Hole district.  Here, she led a two-front campaign against the Republic and local criminal elements.

Grand Admiral Harridax Kirill "Voidwolf"
Underworld operation mastermind
Status: DECEASED

Beginning his career as an Outer Rim slaver, Kirill later took a contract as an Imperial privateer.  He often employed tactics deemed distasteful by his aristocratic Imperial colleagues.  The seizure of Force-sensitives and their deliverance to the Sith saw him excel to the rank of Commander.  Kirill later schemed to amass a large underworld fleet to strike at the Core Worlds, leaving the Empire and Republic to battle on Corellia.  He was defeated by the infamour Voidhound.

Admiral Zasha Ranken
Commander, Imperial Forward Command
Status: Unknown

A prominent Imperial naval commander, Ranken was handpicked by Rycus Kilran to serve under him during the Great Galactic War.  Later, she assumed leadership of Forward Command, planning and executing bold offensive strikes against the Republic.  After the Zakuulan invasion, Ranken sought out Republic and Zakuulan allies to rally against the forces of the Eternal Empire but was arrested by Arcann's forces, later being inadvertently released by the Alliance Commander.

General Kolvin
Nar Shaddaa expedition mission leader
Status: Unknown

During the Cold War, Kolvin led a Reclamation Service expedition to the Hutt-controlled moon of Nar Shaddaa.  At the Sith Emperor's behest, Kolvin's team was charged with uncovering an ancient relic associated with Darth Revan.  Kolvin's expedition ended with the discovery of the Infinite Engine device, which was transported to Dromund Kaas on his command for study.
