"The Empire is gone, Mando. All that are left are mercenaries and warlords."
Greef Karga to "the Mandalorian"[src]

A warlord was a military leader in charge of civilian territory. The Confederacy of Independent Systems made use of several warlords including General Grievous, who plotted to blockade and occupy planets such as Ryloth.[1] Other Confederate warlords were Archduke Poggle the Lesser[4] of the Stalgasin hive[5] and the Karkarodon Riff Tamson.[6]

Kaplan was an Imperial warlord.[2] Following their major loss in the Battle of Endor, which saw the first death of Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine and destruction of DS-2 Death Star II Mobile Battle Station, the Galactic Empire shattered into factionalism.[7] After its fall in the Battle of Jakku, the once centralized empire[8] was reduced to scattered warlords and mercenaries.[9]

Approximately three decades after the Battle of Endor, Kylo Ren severed his ties with the Jedi Order and became a warlord of the First Order.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Within Star Wars canon, the position of warlord first appeared in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones through the character of Poggle the Lesser,[10] who was confirmed to be a warlord in the opening newsreel for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Weapons Factory."[4] Additionally, the audio description for Attack of the Clones available on Disney+ incorrectly translates a quote from Poggle to be that he is sending his "warlords" to hide in the Geonosis catacombs.[11] The film's subtitles instead state Poggle is saying he is sending his Geonosian warriors to the catacombs.[10]
