Ceptor was born on Dromund Kaas at some point before the beginning of the Great Galactic War. He was not from any important family with traditions, as many high-ranking Imperials were, but from a middle class family with no ties to the upper echelons of the Sith Empire. The young Ceptor was determine to change that. Joining the Imperial Military, he fought in the Great Galactic War since its first days. The young officer rose trough the ranks and fought at Sluis Van, in the Minos Cluster, and at Begeren. He took part in the fighting as a member of the Aurek Battalion during the invasion of Begeren, and was promoted to the rank of major for bravery. By 3,660 BBY, Ceptor had reached the rank of Moff in the Empire, one of the highest positions that non-Force-sensitive Imperials could attain.
