|Chronological and political information|
Strategos, also known as Darth Strategos, William Tarkin Palpatine or simply William Tarkin, was a Dark Lord of the Sith and an Imperial Supreme Commander. Strategos was the adopted son of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin and eventually came to be the Assistant Captain of his late father's personal Star Destroyer: the Allecto, he was the third and last genetic duplicate of Palpatine born through Project Eternal Life, Strategos had a rapid aging and mental development although it slowed down after the first three years ago by which he was physically about twice his chronological age.
Despite his true age, his physical age allowed Strategos to enter into the Imperial Military where he soon became the commanding officer of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Allecto, even after his adopted father's death he used the Star Destroyer to expand Imperial territory by journeying into the Unknown Regions where he relocated the planet Lehon for the good of the Empire. When he returned to the ruins of Byss he was called before Zachary Palpatine and revealed the truth of his accelerated age due to Tarkin informing him of Palpatine's Sith nature at a younger age,
