"I am loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus, last stationed at the Imperial shield base on Endor, and now here on Akiva as part of a… diplomatic mission."
―Sinjir Rath Velus[src]

In the Galactic Empire, loyalty officers were specialized officers who were part of the Imperial Security Bureau.[1] Their job was to make sure that troops remained loyal to the regime. They were tasked with discovering any trespasses against the Empire, from mild breaches of conduct to outright betrayal. In order to do that, loyalty officers were trained to read body language and detect lies. They would also use more direct approaches, such as searching a suspect's quarters, digging through his or her files, and asking his or her superiors about any instances of disobedience that might have occurred in the past. Due to their functions, loyalty officers inspired terror in the members of whatever base, battle station or office they were dispatched to.[2]

About four years after the Battle of Yavin, Sinjir Rath Velus was one such officer, and he was stationed at the Imperial shield base on Endor. However, Velus abandoned his post following the Empire's defeat at the Battle of Endor.[2]

Emarr Ottkreg was another loyalty officer, assigned to Admiral Rae Sloane's Vigilance at the time of the Battle of Endor. Sloane summarily executed him when it became clear the Empire was about to lose the battle.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Loyalty officer first appeared in the novel Aftermath, which was written by Chuck Wendig and released in 2015.
