Commander was the rank or title of an officer with authority over a body of troops or a military operation. In galactic history, soldiers served under commanders in various military organizations such as the Republic Military, which used Clone Commanders[25] such as Cody[26] and Jedi Commanders during the Clone Wars.[1] on the battlefield. The Confederacy military[5] had General Grievous overseeing the Separatist Droid Army as Supreme Martial Commander during the Clone Wars.[27] Similarly, the Imperial Army,[6] the Alliance to Restore the Republic,[7] the New Republic,[8] the First Order military,[13] and the Resistance all had commanders within their ranks.[12] In the case of the First Order military, Commanders also were identified by wearing teal uniforms similar to that of Majors and Colonels.[28] During the Clone Wars, Mitth'raw'nuruodo claimed he served as a commander in the Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet of the Chiss Ascendancy[2] despite actually being a Senior Captain.[29]
