"Besides, Commander Valent was conspiring with Loring–we cannot stand any more needless fractures in this, and he was too stubborn to be brought into the fold. Not to mention incompetent."
Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax[src]

Valent was a male human officer who served in the Imperial Navy during the reign of the Galactic Empire. At the beginning of his military career, Valent attended the officers' academy on Uyter, along with Kenner Loring. By the late Galactic Civil War, Valent had attained the rank of commander and commanded the Star Destroyer Scythe. Valent refused to accept Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax's de facto control of the fragmented Empire after the battle of Endor, instead conspiring with his opponent, the now-Grand General Loring, entrenched on Malastare. Because of this, Rax fed the New Republic the location of his Star Destroyer, allowing them to destroy it and eliminate another rival to his power.[2]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
    The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
