The Imperial Academy on Mandalore was operated by the Galactic Empire. Sabine Wren and Ketsu Onyo attended the Imperial Academy together before escaping and becoming bounty hunters, with Wren eventually turning against the Empire and joining the rebels. During her time at this academy, Wren encountered a number of Imperial officials that she felt enjoyed being arrogant. She compared them unfavorably with Commandant Cumberlayne Aresko. The Academy had a language unit, which Wren was the fastest cadet in her class to complete during espionage training.
