To earn the Clan title of Palpatine is to receive a badge of honor that is paramount within the walls of Scholae Palatinae. As guardians of the Palpatine line, protectors of his Dark Side knowledge and advocates to the execution of his will - those who bear the Dark Lord's name do so after establishing themselves as prominent and loyal members of the Imperial Clan. Only those who live up to Palpatine's legacy can be given this honor.
Those who achieve the Legacy of Palpatine, current and former, are detailed here.
Responsibilities of the Palpatines
Granting the Title of Palpatine
The following process is utilized in the granting of the Clan title:
- The Clan Summit, via means of activity reports, identifies exceptional members within the clan through personal experiences, and recommendations from Clan members and leaders. (Notes on Exceptional Service can be found below along with a couple prerequisites.) They are expected to adhere to the strictest standards and may at times be unable to identify anyone worthy of being granted the title at a given time. If a member is identified as suitable, they may proceed to putting their name forward to the current Palpatines.
- Once a worthy member has been clearly identified, the Consul and Proconsul, or a sitting member of the Palpatines bring the applicant forward to the entirety of the titled members. The assembled members hold a majority vote, based upon the presented application. Only a majority vote in favor finds the member inducted into the ranks of the Palpatines.
- If the member is approved by the titled members, then, the request is put forward to the Grand Master and his Deputy for final approval.
Defining Exceptional Service
- Substantial presence in Clan Projects, vendettas, and Clan events.
- Leadership experience within the Clan.
- Must be a member of the Clan for minimum one (1) year before they can be considered. (Prerequisite)
- Must not have AWOLed or left the Clan for any reason within the last year other than for a DC position.(Prerequisite)
- Must be a positive influence upon lower ranked members, including exceptional mentoring of these members. This could include the mentoring of on apprentice up to Journeyman 4. (Prerequisite)

||Impetus' rise through the ranks of Scholae Palatinae was initially rapid, becoming Quaestor of Caliburnus within a year, reorganising the house after a merge with Dorimad Sol and leading it to tie with Acclivis Draco in in a house feud. Later, Impetus would become more widely known as Priestess of Lore, upholding the clan's traditions, and later, then as the mother of the special forces, developing an expertise in subterfuge and black ops. She was believed to be killed by a freak heat storm in the Brightlands of Ryloth, a notion that remains for the bulk of the clan. Only a select few know she had returned in disguise as Elincia Rei, brilliant scientist.||November 16, 2007|
||Evant earned the Legacy of Palpatine after a term of leadership in Scholae Palatinae that saw it through the Dark Crusades and subsequent Great Jedi War, through reclanning and formation of two new Houses of Imperium and Excidium, and a period of fictional development that solidified their role as an Empire that ended only upon his appointment to the Dark Council.||March 26, 2016|
|Jorm "The Jester" Na'trej||
||Jorm has been a cornerstone of Scholae Palatinae's more shady operations for years, earning the title of Dark Paladin.

Revoking the Title of Palpatine
Choosing the Dark Paladins
The Dark PaladinsThe Paladins fall under the direct command of the Emperor. Created in the third year of Cotelin, at the dawn of the Seventh Great Jedi War, their purpose was to uphold Scholae Palatinae’s ethos and stand as a shining example of what an active member should strive to represent.
As the crushing fist of Palpatine, the Dark Paladin personified the terrors of the Sith Lord. They were the first on the line of battle, a banner for Scholae Palatinae, leading the soldiers onward. In times of peace, they worked ceaselessly to further the good of the unit. Through them, the Summit would encourage additional activity and discipline, as the Paladins were highlighted as role models. Only the best were allowed to be displayed as a Paladin.
A newly appointed Paladin is given an elevated status within the House. They are allowed to help moderate issues within the House, monitor IRC and Message Boards, and help train members as they see fit. Because only the most capable and trusted are awarded this, they are allowed new freedoms within the Clan's holdings They are allowed access to the more restricted sections of the Clan Headquarters (areas normally reserved for Summit only). Paladins are also given rights to utilize any of the ships under the command of the Clan, save for the Star Destroyers. In times of war, Paladins can choose which vessel they use in combat, or serve upon. In times of peace, if they have a need of a ship, they are given priority clearance to the vessel of their choosing.
The Paladins of Scholae Palatinae are an elite fraternity of the very best. Together they are expected answer the calls and duties of the Clan they serve, but in return they are given the very best of opportunities. In some cases, Dark Paladins have gone on to leave Scholae Palatinae for other units. In these cases, the title, and the rights that come with it, are suspended, but not permanently removed, as the Dark Paladins' mark on the clan will remain forever.
