Colonel (TIE Corps)
Colonel (COL) is the second-highest line rank in the TIE Corps.
Promotion to this rank is achieved by time in grade, but the promotion is only awarded at the discretion of the member's superiors.
Colonels were, in the past, unusually common because members that retired from a position that afforded them a higher rank were demoted to Colonel when joining a squadron. This was the case even if appointed to Wing Commander, as General was considered to be of high prestige.
