Rear Admiral Chiraneau

Rear Admiral was a naval rank, usually the lowest level of Admiral in a fleet, and the counterpart to the Army rank of Major General. The next rank up in seniority was Vice Admiral, while the rank below was Commodore. There is also some evidence for a semi-formal subordinate grade of Brevet-Admirals, necessitated by the vast expansion of military command responsibilities under the Galactic Empire, and later during the Yuuzhan Vong War.

The title existed in the Republic Navy at least as early as the Mandalorian Wars, when Captain Saul Karath was promoted to Rear Admiral in 3963 BBY after the Battle of Vanquo.

One Imperial Rear Admiral, Michael Unther, was promoted to Rear Admiral after retiring from active duty: somewhat bizarrely, he had previously been the commanding Admiral of a Sector Fleet.
