Affiliation

Wullf Yularen was a male Human, born into a prominent Coruscanti family and raised on Anaxes. Early on in his military career, Yularen distinguished himself as a captain in the Kwymar Sector Fleet, fighting against slavers and pirates. While serving with the fleet, Yularen became obsessed with intelligence security, which the Galactic Republic's law-enforcement agencies lacked. His desire for improving security and prevent leaks led him to resign from the sector fleet and instead serve as an intelligence officer in the Republic's Senate Bureau of Intelligence. There he investigated many senators, but ultimately the corruption in the bureau—combined with the powerful enemies he made—forced him to resign. He didn't quit the intelligence career, however, as he assigned to an anti-corruption unit in the Office of the Supreme Chancellor. A special agent, it was his duty to investigate government corruption, especially during the Separatist Crisis. He became a strong supporter of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during this time, and Yularen's dedication earned him Palpatine's attention. Yularen ultimately retired from his new position and returned to Anaxes, but the Supreme Chancellor still had work for him to do.

In 22 BBY, during the Clone Wars, Yularen was persuaded by Palpatine to join the Republic Navy as an admiral, becoming one of the youngest naval officers to hold the rank. He was assigned to Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, whom Yularen saw as a reckless fighter pilot rather than a respectable general. Commanding his fleet in numerous engagements, the admiral primarily operated from the bridge of the Venator-class Star Destroyer Resolute, occasionally using the Spirit of the Republic and the Hunter as his flagship. Yularen served in a wide variety of battlefronts during the first year of the war alone, ranging from key engagements like Christophsis and Ryloth to relatively minor flashpoints like Teth and Quell.

Following the conclusion of the war and the birth of the Empire in 19 BBY, Yularen returned to the intelligence business, and he would go on to serve as a colonel in the Imperial Security Bureau. When filing his factual reports, he was known to add a pro-New Order spin to them. He would later be stationed onboard the Death Star I, in 0 BBY, as head of the ISB contingent and a member of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. He was tasked with briefing the Grand Moff and maintaining loyalty to the Empire, as many senior officers aboard the station had plans to use the battlestation for their own means. Yularen was present during a meeting in the Death Star conference room when the station commanders discussed the theft of the Death Star plans and the ongoing search for the Rebel Alliance's hidden command base. When the location of the Rebel headquarters was discovered to be on Yavin 4, the Death Star moved to destroy the moon. Before it could complete its task, Rebel pilot and future Jedi Master Luke Skywalker managed to destroy the battlestation, killing all aboard, including Yularen.

Early life

Admiral Yularen during the Clone Wars

Wullf Yularen was born to an influential Coruscanti family[1] and raised on Anaxes. Yularen's father was a legendary naval instructor who desired perfection from the cadets he trained. Wullf followed his father's footsteps and began a naval career, serving as a captain in the Kwymar Sector Fleet. In command of an Outer Rim patrol, Yularen began cleaning up certain areas of the galaxy; he fought slavers on the Listehol Run and destroyed several pirate bases in Wild Space. His time with the Kwymar fleet left him with the need to uncover corruption and insure security, as leaks in Republic law-enforcement agencies often tipped off Yularen's mission targets. Ultimately, this lack of security caused him to resign from the sector fleet and instead pursue a career in intelligence.[2] The prominence of his family provided Yularen the political backing to get a job as a special agent with the Senate Bureau of Intelligence. Over the next decade, he investigated a myriad of cases for, against, and about the Senate, observing all the major delegates and assembling detailed dossiers on all of them. Even then, there was corruption within the SBI, and numerous low-level functionaries who were game to support any senator's schemes by passing on misinformation for the right price.[1] Through his work, Yularen made a considerable amount of enemies in both the Senate and the Bureau.[2] Ultimately, the sheer scale of the corruption led Yularen to leave the service.[1]

Afterward, he was assigned to an anti-corruption unit under the Office of the Supreme Chancellor, investigating both government corruption and individuals' ties to the growing Separatist movement. It was during this period that Yularen became enamored with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and the direction in which he intended to take the Republic. Very soon, he was a loyal follower and a trusted agent for Palpatine's inner circle.[1] Yularen came to Palpatine's attention as a dedicated intelligence officer, but he eventually left this position as well,[7] beginning an early retirement to Anaxes.[2] Nonetheless, the Supreme Chancellor was not prepared to let a man like Yularen leave his services forever.[7]

Service during the Clone Wars

"Of all the Jedi, why did I have to end up with Skywalker?"
―Wullf Yularen, on his assignment to Anakin Skywalker's fleet — (audio)Listen (file info)

At the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Palpatine coaxed Yularen out of retirement and offered him a promotion to admiral and a commission in the new Republic Navy.[7] Deciding to distance himself from the intelligence community as much as he could,[1] Yularen accepted, becoming one of the youngest officers in the Republic to hold the rank.[7] A year into the war, he was assigned to a major task force[1] led by Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi[7] and Anakin Skywalker. Yularen was often worried about Skywalker's reckless tactics[5] and often saw him as bold starfighter pilot rather than a respected general.[8] However, the admiral held considerable respected for Skywalker's talents and confidence.[2] At one point during the war, Yularen declined to speak with HoloNet News on the topic of the Republic's war heroes, saying that he found it difficult to define such a being.[8]

Christophsis and Teth

"Stand by to break orbit—Separatist vessels incoming. Sorry, General Kenobi, but we're under fire—you're on your own."
―Admiral Yularen during the Battle of Christophsis
Yularen observes the Separatist blockade during the Battle of Christophsis.

During the Battle of Christophsis, Yularen led the fleet from the Venator-class Star Destroyer Resolute. Due to a Separatist blockade of Christophsis, Yularen was forced to withdraw from orbit, leaving the ground forces on their own. Even without air support, Anakin Skywalker and his new apprentice, Ahsoka Tano, managed to destroy the Separatists' shield generator. Kenobi, meanwhile, forced the surrender of Separatist General Whorm Loathsom.[8][9]

Skywalker and Tano were then set to Teth to rescue the Huttlet Rotta, the son of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, from Separatist forces on the planet. Yularen, onboard his flagship Spirit of the Republic, arrived with his fleet to cover the extraction team's escape to Tatooine. Aboard the G9 Rigger freighter Twilight, appropriated from Separatists forces on Teth, Skywalker and Tano attempted to board the Spirit to drop off the rescued Rotta while Vulture droids pursued. As the freighter bore a Separatist transponder code, the Star Destroyer originally fired on them, but Skywalker was able to convince the crew that he was who he was. Yularen noticed the Vultures and told Skywalker that while he would have the destroyer's deflector shields momentarily dropped, the Twilight would have to divert to the aft hangar bay. The admiral proceeded to tell his general that the Spirit had faced suicide runs before, forcing the crew to shoot first and ask questions later. Skywalker acknowledged, noting that Yularen had just put him in his place. Before the Twilight could land, a damaged Vulture droid shot into the aft hangar, wreaking havoc on the landing zone and forcing Skywalker to take the Twilight to Tatooine instead. In the end, Skywalker successfully returned Rotta to Jabba, convince the Hutt crime lord to open his trade routes to Republic military forces.[8][9]

Hunt for Grievous

Admiral Yularen was assigned as the commander of Skywalker's three-ship battle group sent to Bothawui to protect the Bothan homeworld from General Grievous. The cruisers Resolute, Dauntless, and Pioneer had just been completed at the shipyard at Allanteen VI, and Yularen transferred his flag from the Spirit of the Republic to the Resolute. Before the fleet could arrive at Bothawui, the fleet engaged Grievous's forces in minor skirmishes.[10] The battle group arrived at Bothawui before Grievous could, but when he did arrive, AT-TEs placed on asteroids destroyed the general's fleet of Munificent-class star frigates and forced him to retreat.[11]

Admiral Yularen during the Clone Wars

Sometime afterward, Yularen and Skywalker were participating in the search for General Grievous's secret weapon, the warship Malevolence.[12] Yularen led the briefing of Shadow Squadron before they launched in their BTL-B Y-wing starfighters to attack the Malevolence. He would later warn Nala Se and the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center of the Malevolence's plan to destroy the medicenter, killing approximately 60,000 wounded clone troopers in the process. Ultimately, Skywalker, Plo Koon, and Shadow Squadron were able to stop the Malevolence in time, destroying its two ion cannons. The destruction of the primary weapons disabled the hyperdrive and inflicted massive damage throughout the ship.[13] From the Resolute, Yularen led a total of three Star Destroyers in pursuit of the damaged Malevolence as it attempted to flee to Separatist space. When Senator Padmé Amidala and her protocol droid C-3PO were captured by the Separatist warship, Generals Skywalker and Kenobi infiltrated the battleship and recovered the senator and her droid. However, the battle droids onboard had managed to repair the ship's hyperdrive, so Skywalker and Amidala infiltrated the bridge and set the coordinates of a nearby moon into the navicomputer. The two Jedi, the senator, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 fled onboard the Twilight as Grievous, in his Belbullab-22 starfighter Soulless One, and Vulture droids followed close behind. As the Malevolence attempted to flee, it impacted with the moon, obliterating the massive warship.[14]

Losses and retreats

Yularen's forces would also participate in the battle above Nexus Ortai, a strategic world located at the junction of some hyperlanes. Though the initial Separatist invasion force was destroyed, the Republic suffered many casualties and were forced to withdraw when enemy reinforcements arrived. Sometime after the retreat, Yularen was present when Skywalker, Kenobi, Tano, and a squad of clone troopers under Captain Rex had themselves frozen in carbonite in order to infiltrate the Separatist shipyards at Gwori. Yularen was present when Tano indicated that the strike force was in position, and that Plo Koon's and Saesee Tiin's Hunter Squadron would proceed to Gwori to destroy the shipyards in their BTL-B Y-wing starfighters. Yularen's fleet did not participate in the engagement, however.[15]

Skywalker, Yularen, and the Resolute were sent to assist in the evacuation of General Aayla Secura's forces from the disastrous Battle of Quell. Skywalker, Tano, and Rex led a strike force into Secura's crippled Star Destroyer and caught up with the Twi'lek general and Commander Bly and his men. Skywalker was injured during the escape, but they all managed to get aboard a Consular-class frigate before the Star Destroyer was destroyed. Their ship was hit by Vulture droid fighters as they entered the Resolute's dorsal hangar, and the damage caused by the enemy fire engaged the frigate's hyperdrive. Yularen ordered the Resolute to take evasive actions as the frigate entered hyperspace and, soon after, arrived in the Maridun system.[16] There they encountered and defeated the forces of Neimoidian General Lok Durd, who had planned to use his new defoliator weapon against a colony of pacifist Lurmen.[17]

Liberating Ryloth, Kiros, and Kothlis

Yularen recovers from his injuries following the Battle of Ryloth.

Following Techno Union Foreman Wat Tambor's conquest of Ryloth, the Resolute, along with the destroyers Defender and Redeemer, participated in the first act of liberating the world, with Yularen and Skywalker commanding. Above Ryloth, Commander Tano's Blue Squadron engaged the Separatist blockade commanded by Neimoidian Captain Mar Tuuk from a Lucrehulk-class Droid Control Ship. However, Tuuk had anticipated a Republic attack, and an additional four Munificent-class frigates emerged from hyperspace to supplement the two already present. Faced with a larger enemy fleet and scores of Vulture droids, Yularen ordered Tano and her squadron to abort the mission and return to the Resolute. Tano disobeyed the orders, resulting in heavy losses for Blue Squadron. The Vulture droids began making kamikaze attacks on the three Republic Star Destroyers, resulting in heavy damage. One Vulture droid dove into the bridge of the Resolute, and though the bridge was not destroyed, Yularen was wounded in the attack. The Redeemer was destroyed, but after Tano and the remnants of her squadron returned, the two remaining destroyers jumped into hyperspace. Yularen was taken to the sickbay, where he was cared to by a 2-1B medical droid. It was in the sickbay that Tano apologized to the admiral for disobeying his orders; Yularen feigned unconsciousness. When General Skywalker came up with the bold strategy of evacuating the Defender and then ramming it into the Droid Control Ship, many were unsure on whether or not the move would succeed. On the bridge of the Resolute, Tano came up with another strategy—a Marg Sabl maneuver—to protect the Resolute and give the Y-wing bombers the element of surprise they needed to destroy the remaining Separatist frigates. Many clones, including Rex, continued to be skeptic of the plan. But Yularen arrived on the bridge and expressed his confidence in Tano and her plan, even though he knew the odds of success were slim. But Skywalker and R2-D2 succeeded in piloting the Defender into Tuuk's flagship, obliterating both warships. From the safety of an escape pod, Skywalker and his astromech droid watched as Ahsoka's strategy succeeded in destroying the rest of the Separatist fleet, paving the way for a trio of Acclamator-class assault ships commanded by Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu to begin their landing on Ryloth.[18] Yularen was present, via hologram, at a meeting with General Windu, Master Yoda, Chancellor Palpatine, and Senator Orn Free Taa. During the meeting, he informed the Chancellor that the Republic could not spare any troops or warships to be sent to Ryloth as reinforcements. As a result, General Windu decided to ally with the Twi'lek radical Cham Syndulla's Freedom Fighters. Their combined forces were able to take the capital city of Lessu, free the planet from the grip of the Confederacy, and take Emir Tambor prisoner.[19]

A Republic fleet under Yularen later accompanied Generals Kenobi and Skywalker to the Togruta colony world of Kiros. The subsequent battle ended in a Republic victory after Kenobi defeated the Besalisk commander of the droid occupation force, Ugg, in hand-to-hand combat. Yularen reported via hologram that the Togruta population appeared to have vanished completely from the planet, leading Kenobi to believe that the missing Togruta were being held as slaves in the nearby Zygerrian system.[20]

Accompanied by Master Yoda during the Battle of Kothlis, Yularen led his fleet into combat against a force of six Trade Federation Lucrehulk-class Droid Control Ships while Kenobi, Skywalker, and Tano led an assortment of Delta-7Bs, V-19 Torrents, and Y-wings in engaging the enemy Vulture droids. The four Jedi spoke with the Bothan First Secretary Desark Fey'lya in the aftermath of the battle, who thanked the Republic for repelling the Separatist assault. Tano, however, knew Fey'lya was lying, and she voiced her conclusion that the Bothan had personally invited the Separatists to meet with him on Kothlis. Insulted, the First Secretary announced that Kothlis would remain neutral as a result of the Torguta Padawan's accusation. Skywalker scolded her, telling his Padawan that they all had known he was lying—but they had not called out Fey'lya in an attempt to pursue diplomacy.[21]

Battle over Devaron

Yularen during the battle over Devaron
"So, the mission was your usual version of success, then?"
"If by success you mean I won, then yes."
―Yularen and Skywalker, after the battle above Devaron — (audio)Listen (file info)

After the Duros mercenary Cad Bane stole a holocron from the Jedi Temple and captured Rodian Jedi Master Bolla Ropal on Devaron, Bane moved to escape the system with the holocron and a Kyber memory crystal, planning to give both to the Sith Lord Darth Sidious in exchange for a substantial payment. Skywalker and Tano were dispatched to intercept Bane and recover Ropal and the artifacts; Yularen and the Resolute were likewise assigned to assist the Jedi in their mission. Upon arriving in Devaron's orbit, the lone Star Destroyer engaged the five escaping Munificent-class frigates. On the Resolute's bridge, Yularen informed Skywalker that they had received a message from a clone stationed on the world. The beleaguered soldier managed to report that Ropal and the Kyber crystal had both been captured and the Republic outpost had been overrun before being killed by the advancing battle droids. As the four escorting frigates were destroyed, the Resolute focused on the surviving Separatist warship—Bane's frigate. A few well-placed shots hit the fleeing warship's engines, preventing it from going into hyperspace. Skywalker ordered that the Resolute move in so that they could initiate boarding procedures. Yularen, noting that the destroyer possessed no boarding craft as part of its complement, was shocked by the general's suggestion.[22]

In the destroyer's hangar, Skywalker, Tano, and three brigades of clones under Rex's command assembled for a pre-mission briefing. Faced with the task of boarding the remaining frigate without any suitable craft, Skywalker developed an unorthodox strategy of using a trio of AT-TEs to land on the exterior of the Separatist warship. Rex and Ahsoka were impressed with Skywalker's plan, as AT-TEs were pressurized and equipped with magnetic feet. But Yularen, who had gone down to the hangar to see if he could assist in any way, found the tactic to be ridiculous. Nonetheless, Skywalker's strategy proved successful, and the two Jedi and the clones boarded the warship. After forcing Bane to flee, they escaped the exploding frigate aboard a Sheathipede-class shuttle; unknown to them, Bane had killed the clone trooper Denal, stole his armor, and was standing among them in the shuttle. When the frigate vaporized, the Republic forces assumed both the holocron and the memory crystal had been destroyed as well. Yularen greeted the forces upon their return to the Resolute, but was not impressed to learn that the goal of the mission had failed to been achieved—as the admiral noted, Skywalker's "usual version of success."[22] The Republic forces would learn of Bane's survival when he, still clad in Denal's armor, hijacked a V-19 Torrent and proceeded to escape the Resolute. Skywalker contacted Yularen and told him to lock down all of the hyperdrive docking rings, hoping to trap the commandeered starfighter—which lacked an onboard hyperdrive—and capture the bounty hunter. However, the order came and was enacted too late; as Yularen relayed the order to shut down the hyperdrive rings, Bane docked his fighter with one and escaped into hyperspace.[23]

Assault on Geonosis

"This is a planetary-wide invasion, Captain. If I divert resources to your position, it will mean sacrificing other areas of the campaign."
―Yularen, to Commander Jet, during the assault on Geonosis — (audio)Listen (file info)

Following the conflict on Devaron, Admiral Yularen and his task force comprised the core of a fleet assembled to lead a second assault on the Outer Rim world of Geonosis, the birthplace of the Clone Wars. Intelligence gathered by Senator Padmé Amidala on Cato Neimoidia indicated that the Geonosian Archduke Poggle the Lesser was constructing a new droid factory on Geonosis. Jedi Generals Skywalker, Kenobi, and Ki-Adi-Mundi, along with their respective clone forces, began a three-pronged assault on the shielded droid foundry, using LAAT/i and LAAT/c gunships. Before Mundi departed, Yularen offered the Cerean Jedi Master luck on his mission.[24]

However, as the invasion began, the LAAT gunships met with heavy Geonosian and droid resistance. Skywalker's and Mundi's forces were shot down before they could rendezvous with Kenobi's forces at the designated landing zone. Mundi's clone commander, Jet, contacted Yularen via comlink to request for air support; the admiral was forced to deny the clone assistance, as the Y-wing bombers were preoccupied with Geonosian forces elsewhere and could not be diverted if the planetary invasion was to be successful. While Jet relayed this news to Mundi, Yularen began reallocating the bombers to provide air support for the beleaguered ground troops. This effort produced one available squadron, which Yularen was able to divert to assist the converging remnants of the attack force upon Skywalker's request. With the landing zone secured, Skywalker and Tano led a strike force in destroying the shield protecting the droid foundry, allowing the Republic forces to begin their attack on the foundry itself.[24]

Serving the Empire

Returning to intelligence

With the coming of the New Order, Palpatine's advisor Crueya Vandron established a COMPNOR spin-off organization called the Imperial Security Bureau as an intentional rival to Imperial Intelligence. The ISB served as a secret police organization to increase Palpatine's knowledge of political events.[25] Yularen's personal loyalty to Palpatine made him a poor fit for an objective organization like Imperial Intelligence; however, the ISB had no pretensions of objectivity, so Yularen, now in his mid-thirties, was reassigned there. His move lost him respect in the eyes of his former superiors or colleagues, many of whom viewed COMPNOR, especially the ISB, as a misuse of valuable resources. Yularen had good connections to the Emperor's inner circle, but he himself remained outside of it.[1]

Yularen headed up his own special task force during the early years of the Empire, which received high-level assignments, often involving an Imperial senator or other important individual. One of these assignments was to investigate the names of the signatories of the Petition of 2000, the document that Senator Padmé Amidala presented to Palpatine on behalf of the Delegation of 2000, a vocal group of senators opposed to Palpatine's increasing power.[1]

The Death Star and death

Yularen and another ISB officer aboard the Death Star

By the outbreak of the Rebellion, Yularen had risen to the rank of colonel in the ISB, and had acquired a reputation as an effective leader with boundless personal loyalty to Palpatine.[6] He was assigned to the nearly-completed Death Star I battle station as a member of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's command staff,[4] and due to the presence of ambitious high-ranking officers like Tarkin and Admiral Conan Antonio Motti,[26] he was there to ensure that the station's personnel remained absolutely loyal to the Emperor.[27]

Yularen, as head of the ISB contingent,[1] was placed in charge of numerous agents specializing in surveillance, investigations, internal affairs, interrogation, reeducation, and enforcement. Death Star security forces were obligated to provide office space and reasonable assistance to the ISB, though they did not welcome his men with open arms. In addition, there were several undercover agents aboard to investigate suspicious activities, acting as soldiers, administrators, and lower-level officers—in fact, at least one of Tarkin's personal aides was an undercover ISB agent.[28]

In 0 BBY, Yularen and other key members of the Death Star's command staff—including Tarkin, Motti, and General Tagge—met in a conference room to discuss the current state of the Empire. The colonel remained silent for the majority of the meeting, watching quietly as Motti and Tagge bickered over the threat that the Rebel Alliance posed to the Empire's military. Even when Tarkin arrived with the news that the Emperor had dissolved the Imperial Senate, Yularen remained stoic. He continued to watch the meeting progress, listening as the others discussed the whereabouts of the stolen Death Star plans and sitting calmly as Darth Vader—Yularen's onetime Jedi commander, the former Anakin Skywalker—choked Motti into submission for his disbelief in the powers of the Force.[4]

Yularen was killed in the Death Star's destruction during the Battle of Yavin.[3]

Personality and traits

Wullf Yularen was considered an excellent observer due to his insightful and perceptive nature and, as a result, few senators felt comfortable with him around. Yularen was at ease in the halls of power, and over his multiple military and intelligence careers, he had amassed a great deal of information on a large number of beings. Though his intelligence reports were factually correct, he tended to add a pro-New Order spin to them.[1] Yularen was increasingly obsessed over improving intelligence security and rooting out corruption.[2]

He was a loyal, dedicated, and disciplined naval officer. During the time of the Republic, he was one of the youngest members of the naval officer corps to have reached the rank of admiral. Unflinching, he followed all his orders even when he held his own private doubts about them.[7] He was not afraid to butt heads with his superiors, especially Anakin Skywalker, who Yularen often saw as a reckless fighter pilot rather than a Jedi General.[8] Regardless, Yularen also held a considerable amount of respect for the man's talents and confidence. However, he was not particularly fond of Jedi in general, for they followed their own chain of command and did not always follow orders from military command on Coruscant—two things that Yularen saw as having a negative effect on operational security.[2]

Behind the scenes

Portrayal and development

Wullf Yularen first appeared in 1977's Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in which he, as an unnamed character, was portrayed by an unidentified actor. He was not given a name until the release of the "Premiere Limited" base set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game, in which he was identified as Colonel Wullf Yularen of the Imperial Security Bureau. Yularen would go virtually unreferenced in any Star Wars materials until the release of both The Force Unleashed Campaign Guide and the various aspects of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars multimedia project.

In 2008's Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and the ongoing Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, Yularen is voiced by veteran Star Wars voice actor Tom Kane. Kane compared Yularen in Imperial times to General Erwin Rommel, a German commander in World War II. Rommel's opposite number on the battlefield, Lieutenant-General Bernard Montgomery, respected the German commander and said that even though Rommel wore the Nazi uniform, he wasn't a Nazi. Kane believed that Yularen, a strict military officer, was simply following orders when the Republic transitioned into the Empire.[29]

Errors

An action figure of Yularen was produced by Hasbro in 2007 as part of the Death Star Briefing set. It included a short biography claiming that none of the officers present at the briefing were aware that Yularen was an ISB agent, though he was obviously wearing an ISB uniform in the scene. On the packaging of the Hasbro Death Star Briefing set, his first name is misspelled as "Wulff." On page 138 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide and in the end credits of The Clone Wars TV episodes, his last name is misspelled as "Yularan."

In the commentary for The Clone Wars movie, it was explained by the creators that Yularen was portrayed as an admiral as a means of showing him rising through the ranks to Grand Admiral—which, the creators believed, was his rank in Episode IV given the fact that the unidentified actor who portrayed Yularen wore a white uniform similar to that of the Grand Admirals. The commentary does not mention Yularen's accepted rank as a colonel in the Imperial Security Bureau. However, this issue has since been rectified, thanks to details of Yularen's post–Clone Wars career provided in The Force Unleashed Campaign Guide.
