|Unidentified Imperial Commander|
|Chronological and political information|
- "Lord Vader? We were ambushed upon arrival, but I have the situation well in…"
- ―The commander to Darth Vader
After the Jedi Knight Kento Marek was located by Imperial spies on Kashyyyk, the Empire launched an assault on the planet. The commander was in charge of the Imperial troops and greeted the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader when he arrived to kill Marek. Although Vader was not too pleased at the lack of progress that the Imperial invasion force was undergoing under his command and started choking him, Vader ultimately spared him as he only came to kill Marek. After Vader killed the Jedi in his home, he discovered his son, Galen. At that moment, the commander and several stormtroopers arrived and attacked the boy. Vader, however, had his own plans for Galen and protected him from blaster fire. Vader then killed the stormtroopers and the commander by reflecting the commander's and the stormtroopers' shots with his lightsaber.
