The Scholae Palatinae Military is the collection of the Armed Forces of Scholae Palatinae and consists of all elements necessary to help ensure the security of all assets and interests. It consists of five major subordinate elements: Praetorian Guard, Imperial Legion, Imperial Scholae Navy, Scholae Palatinae Fighter Corps and Scholae Palatinae Intelligence. It is headed by the Emperor of the Caperion System and Quaestor of the Empire's Chosen, with support from the Grand Marshal as second in command.
The history of the Scholae Palatinae Military dates back to the Exodus in 19 ABY, as the Clan moved to their new home in the Cocytus System given to them by the Seven, it was established during the initial attempts at control in the system. No formal structure existed during the instability of the first year as leadership changed hands and an Empire was being formed, but a non Force sensitive military had been created on the different planets of the system, and although fractured was the start of what would become a great military force.
During the years that followed, the Consul would assume the role of Emperor of the Cocytus System and along with the Proconsul would pull all military forces under control of the House under the title of Scholae Palatinae Military. A rapid expansion of policy, training and recruiting would follow, with different independent units following their own commanders and missions while the Clan focused on their own affairs.
After the Reclamation of Judecca in 27 ABY, Scholae Palatinae took many losses in the areas of personnel and equipment, so the Summit saw fit to recruit new troops and refit old machinery to compete in today’s galactic warfare. Under the direction of the Supreme Commander of Military Forces, Phoenix Olkyssagh Palpatine; and his Grand Marshal, Lucien Kaeth; the military was reorganized into a cohesive unit, with each sub unit having a very defined mission and purpose.
Upon Scholae Palatinae's move to the Caperion System the military forces of Scholae Palatinae took a more magnanimous posture, focusing on system defense, holding sovereignty of space, and slowly taking territory as opposed to all out subjugation.
Chain of Command
The Empress of the Caperion System has the highest authority over the Scholae Palatinae Military, while the Grand Marshal is the principal assistant in all these same matters. Together they exercise control over the entire military down through the respective War Councilor at the head of the different major subordinate elements. Each individual element performs their duties and carries out orders under authority, direction and control of its respective War Councilor, and work together during joint missions and operations falling under the authority of the Grand Marshal. The only exception to this is the Praetorian Guard, who at all times receives orders only from the Empress unless that authority is directly transferred elsewhere by the Empress.

|Scholae Palatinae's Military Officer Ranks|
The commissioned officers are the managers, problem-solvers, and key planners in a position of authority who lead and command enlisted soldiers in all situations. Where enlisted soldiers may have control or charge in positions of authority, they will not have official command without a commission. They derive this authority directly from the Empress of Scholae Palatinae and as such hold a commission document charging them with the duties and responsibilities of their respective office or position.
These commissioned officers have the skills, the training, and the character needed to inspire and encourage others. They embrace and embody the Core Army Values and apply them to every decision they make and every action they take. This training in leadership in management comes along with certain specialties depending on their intended specific function.
This authority is different from rank, where a superior officer will be anyone with a higher rank, and subordinate officer will be those with a lower rank. An officer’s rank can range from Officer Candidate to Surface Marshal.
