The Imperial Remnant is the remaining forces of the Galactic Empire, which was defeated during the Battle of Endor. The Imperial Remnant troops found in Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith include Stormtroopers, Imperial officers, Imperial commandos, and Imperial pilots.
The Remnant's goal is to gain control of the entire galaxy, and maintain that control. After the Empire was defeated and weakened to the Imperial Remnant, they then had to find other means of gaining galactic control, even if they had to be hired by someone like Jerec.
In Mysteries of the Sith, Imperials appeared as a common enemy, and were not hired by any superior villain.
- The emblem used by the Remnant is the same one used by the Galactic Empire, as well as being similar to the one used by the Old Republic (the Old Republic eventually became the Empire after all).
