Corrupter was an old Victory II-class Star Destroyer in the Imperial Navy.

She was originally used by the Empire to hunt down pirates and smugglers in the Outer Rim, but after the Battle of Endor the ship was reassigned to the personal Star Destroyer Fleet of Imperial Intelligence Director Ysanne Isard.

Isard used Corrupter to defend Thyferra and Xucphra bacta convoys after her flight from Coruscant. Captain Ait Convarion, the ship's commanding officer, found and destroyed a bacta-hauling freighter stolen by members of Rogue Squadron--many members of the squad were killed as a result.

After this incident, the Corrupter began terrorizing worlds that refused to pay Isard's largely inflated prices for bacta, especially those that received free bacta "liberated" by the Rogues. Corrupter's first target in this campaign was to destroy a colony on Halanit. Her TIE/sa bombers conducted the orbital bombardment using thermal detonators and proton bombs to melt the glacier and open a hole in the colony's roof. TIE/In interceptors and stormtroopers then went into the colony to kill its people.

Corrupter would, however, meet her end at the Graveyard. With the aid of the Immobilizer 418 cruiser Aggregator, Corrupter thought it had the Rogues in an inescapable trap—until the sudden appearance of the Valiant which attacked the unshielded portion of the destroyer. After suffering a considerable amount of punishment from the squadron and the Alderaanian war cruiser, a pair of proton torpedoes fired by Wedge Antilles struck the bridge, killing Captain Convarion. The leaderless capital ship was soon abandoned. The Rogues and smugglers were unable to salvage the Corrupter so it was chewed up by the Graveyard's asteroids.
