- "Confirmation from admiral Mulleen -- the officers suspected of anti-Imperial sentiments have been rounded up and eliminated."
- ―Sate Pestage reports Mulleen's success to Galactic Emperor Palpatine
Mulleen was a male individual who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars and declared his allegiance to the Galactic Republic's successor state, the Galactic Empire, upon its formation in 19 BBY. One month after the declaration of the New Order, he held the rank of Admiral in the Imperial Navy and had been put in command of the elimination of all officers suspected of disloyalty. He carried out the task with ruthless efficiency and had executed a huge number of detractors within a few months of the Battle of Utapau, one of the final battles in the Clone Wars. Once Mulleen had completed the executions, he reported it to the Galactic Emperor Palpatine's aide, Sate Pestage, who in turn reported it to the Emperor himself.
