Redwqing speaks thy truth. Starr has been in control of the Loyalyst Faction of the Empire since Cracken left, and since Cracken's return, has ceeded power back to Cracken.
if i recall, the Seperatists during the Imperial Civil War were, rightly so, annihilated by the Loyalist Imperial Navy and Army, leaving Relentha to take control of the remaining few Seperatist forces, F. Irvine, and overthrow Corusant.
The Loyalists are ever organized, and loyal to the Emperor and his apprentice, and his children. There are no warlords in the Imperial Loyalists faction (Mine).
