- "Sir, the roster shows a Commander Abel LaSal deployed aboard the Star Destroyer Sovereign, currently docked at Fondor. But the likenesses don’t match up the way they should."
- ―An Imperial specialist, to Grand Moff Tarkin
Abel LaSal was an individual who served as a Commander in the naval forces of the Galactic Empire. Around five years after the Empire's foundation, LaSal was deployed aboard the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Sovereign. While that vessel was docked at Fondor, someone usurped the commander's identity by using a forged code cylinder and officer's disk.
