- "On behalf of the Emperor, I hereby grant you the title 'Patron of the Empire'."
- ―Caleb Knolar
During 1 ABY, Major Caleb Knolar was stationed at a small Imperial garrison in the Tatooinian capital of Bestine. It was at this location that Caleb Knolar accepted credit donations from various sources to support the war effort. Shortly after being stationed, he received at least one generous donation of one million credits from an unknown spacer. Caleb commended this individual's generosity by acknowledging him as a "Patron of the Empire".
Though Caleb wore the same uniform worn by Imperial Surface Marshals, it is not clear if he was in fact a Surface Marshal himself.
