Although the Imperial military traditionally looks upon the Dark Council with a mix of adulation and fear, Darth Acharon is almost universally despised by officers who know his reputation. Acharon is personally responsible for executing over two hundred soldiers he deemed to be incompetent. The unfortunate individuals' transgressions ranged from critical mission failures to wearing boots that were inadequately polished.
Because of Darth Acharon's zero-tolerance policy, assignment to any operation overseen by him is considered a punishment. A few ambitious men and women willingly volunteer for this duty, seeking to enhance their careers by proving themselves worthy of surviving his service. These spirited upstarts often regret the decision, as the only thing Acharon hates more than incompetence is sycophants.
