Star Wars: Bounty Hunters
The Imperial Remnant are the vestiges of Palpatine's Galactic Empire. Although the Empire was defeated with the destruction of the Second Death Star, and the deaths of Palpatine and Vader, the New Republic has been slow to take control of outlying systems. Many Imperial governors and moffs have maintained control over their systems and militaries, who believe that the Empire is the only real chance at peace and order in the galaxy.
Most Remnant cells have little to no contact with each other, as the New Republic actively attempts to limit their outside contact. The Imperial Remnant is the second most powerful individual organization in the galaxy.
