- "We have moffs rebelling and claiming Palpatine is alive, we have Grand General Loring dug in on Malastare—"
- ―Rae Sloane
Kenner Loring was a human male officer who served in the army of the Galactic Empire. At the beginning of his military career, Loring attended the officers' academy on Uyter, along with, the future commander, Valent. By the late Galactic Civil War, Loring held the rank of Grand General, which had once been held by Cassio Tagge. At some point prior to the Battle of Endor, which occurred in 4 ABY, Loring had command over the 204th Imperial Fighter Wing, but did not appreciate their full potential.
Following the death of his master, Emperor Palpatine, Loring and a faction provided an obstacle to Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax's de facto rule of the fragmented Empire. Grand General Loring conspired with Commander Valent and entrenched himself on Malastare.
