From its inception, the Galactic Empire had a complex military hierarchy, in which officers quickly discovered that almost anything was fair game for promotion, which often meant blaming others for their mistakes and avoiding being caught doing something unscrupulous. From Grand Moff Tarkin himself to the lowest ranking officer, everyone in the Empire knew that exploiting the mistakes of others was a surefire way to advance one's career. Among these officers were those who truly believed in the legitimacy of the Empire and did what they could to expand the regime's influence in the galaxy, and those who joined the Imperial Army with the intention of making a comfortable living at the expense of those few who dared to oppose the Empire.
