Patrick Bisson, formerly a Rear Admiral in the First Imperial Fleet. He served as the 13th Group Commanding Officer. After he retired from the Navy, he was recruited into the Imperial Security Bureau, where he rose to the rank of ISB-Director.


Early Life

Earliest records indicate Patrick Bisson is a Hapani male born on Coruscant. Limited records existed until he enlisted in the Imperial Navy and was accepted into the Coruscani Pilot Institute Y11.

Enlisted Service

At CPI Patrick was surrounded by the children of famous military families. He grew to resent the pilots who had everything handed to them and worked hard to outdo them. The immense pressure he put on himself and his lack of piloting skills caused him to finish below the average of his squadron.

Patrick served in the Imperial Navy in the Imperial Navy Starfighter Corps running border patrols with the █████████ Fleet for two years reaching the rank of Master Flight Sergeant [E-4]. Upon reaching the senior enlisted ranks, his CO had observed his leadership of the junior enlisted's. He would mentor them and pass on tips he had picked up over the years, this led his commanding officer to assign Bisson as Alpha-class Gunship flight leader where he excelled in the slower, heavier-hitting fighters using tactical manoeuvers to beat faster interceptors in battles.

After two years of service, Patrick was honorably discharged when his Naval group was disbanded.

Post Tour

After the Navy, he worked for an arms dealer fulfilling government contracts and supplying private military corporations. Rumors indicate Patrick was involved in the proliferation of Binders, the galaxy's answer to the monopoly on Stun-Cuffs held by the Falleen Federation.

Attack on Freedom

On Y13 D050 - Patrick arrived at the Trading station "Astraeus Terminal" for a sales meeting with representatives from an Imperial-aligned private military corporation. While he was having drinks in the galley celebrating a recent business transaction, a message came across the holo screens behind the bar, a symbol of the New Republic appeared, while a voice read out a manifesto. The thermal bomb ripped through the interior of the station. He was left scarred and with missing limbs. The attack left over three thousand civilians dead with rebel insurgents claiming responsibility shortly after.


Patrick was brought to Grand Republic Medical Facility on Coruscant. It was there he received his cybernetic arm implant and spent weeks in bacta recovering from his burns. The twisted remnants of flesh on his face became a constant reminder of the sacrifices required to maintain order in the galaxy. Despite the whispers and sidelong glances, he embraced his disfigurement as a symbol of commitment to the Imperial cause. Upon discharge from Grand Republic, he re-applied to the Imperial Navy. Due to his disabilities, he was not eligible to return as a pilot but was offered an officer commission if he could pass the Academy.

Officer Commission

Y14 D105 - Patrick was commissioned and received command training at Prefsbelt IV Naval Academy, a prestigious fleet institution modeled after the ancient warrior traditions of Coruscant. Upon graduation, he was given the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade [O-2] and his first command was of an anti-fighter carrack in the █████████ region where he showed an aptitude for managing his crew. He reached the rank of Lieutenant Commander [O-4] during his tenure as a Carrack Captain.

Operation Pittin

It was during Operation Pittin that he first took command of the group through the succession of command and was able to rally the men together and destroy the raiding fleet. This got him noticed by Fleet command and began his ascent to command. ADM Drenall awarded him a letter of commendation: "For leadership qualities and initiative both worthy of a potential commander and necessary in order to bring Operation Pittin to a (semi-)successful resolution."

9th Assault Group Executive Officer

Y18 D052 - Patrick was sworn in as an executive officer of the 9th assault group and given command of an Imperial Star Destroyer where he served under three commanding officers never missing a report and receiving praise from his superiors for his attention to detail, experience, leadership, and organization. It was during his command of the ISD Eternity he received his bronze CAPCOM qualification badge by the recommendation of Commodore Euler.

Command Tier

Y18 D345 - Patrick was promoted to the rank of Commodore and assigned to the command-level position of 1st Fleet signals officer for what may be the longest term in 1st Fleet history, providing some long-needed stability to the department.

13th Recon Group Commanding officer

Y19 D105 - Commodore Patrick Bisson was appointed to replace Commodore Turk Killian as the 13th group CO. The group had stagnated and he was brought in to return the unit to its elite status within the Navy. Immediately upon his arrival to Deep-Core, the group was launched into operation "Olympus Divided" to ready the group for a war that was closer than anyone expected.

War in Hosnian (Declassified Y20 D241)

Midway through year 19, then-Rear Admiral Bisson was involved in operations to secure the Hosnian system from New Republic forces.

On year 19, day 188 the Hosnian system was discovered by members of Tresario Star Kingdom. Following the proclamation of Imperial ownership by Emperor Seele, the 13th group under the command of Rear Admiral Patrick Bisson, was given its marching orders: to mobilize as a quick response force to secure the system for the Empire. Upon arrival in Hosnian, the 13th was reinforced by the Swiftsure Joint Task Force comprising multiple naval groups and army brigades. Appointed as commander of the forces tasked with system-level reconnaissance, he and the other reconnaissance elements tracked and scanned all movement of enemy and neutral ships entering and departing the system--while simultaneously aiding with system-level logistics.

The enemy forces were mainly composed of privately owned ships, likely some form of militia, and it was over a month before the New Republic was able to muster a single military vessel within the system. Despite their enemy’s lackluster response the battle was not fought without losses, Rear Admiral Bisson’s second in command Lieutenant Commander Du` Bas Tyra was captured by New Republic forces. Choosing not to allow the New Republic to use him as a bargaining chip, he took his own life while in captivity.

For his role in ensuring that Operation: Swiftsure was a success, he was awarded the Imperial Campaign Medal [ICM] and his eighth Letter of Commendation [LOC-8].


Letter of Commendation: Awarded for contributions to Operation: Swiftsure. For constant vigilance and continual availability for all secondary tasks at hand while on assignment as a system sentry in Hosnian. Rear Admiral Bisson's recon aided in the redirection and forewarning of planetary units and his outstanding dedication, reliability, and performance served as a fine example for junior officers.

Group Command Medal

After 6 months of commanding the 13th Recon Group through exercises and operations, he received the [GCM] with a positive review from Navy Command.


From Navy Commanding Officer Graeda L'Annan:
Awarded for serving with distinction and efficiency in the role of Commanding Officer for the 13th Reconnaissance Group for the last 6 months. Bisson is a highly competent commander, displaying a keen eye for detail and a hand for organization, no doubt courtesy of his past as both an Executive Officer and as FSO. Bisson shows a good grasp for both combat tactics and strategy, and is also a highly active and thorough commander on a personal level, as exemplified by his many and detailed recon reports during Operation ████████.

Kidnapping and murder of Krakonico Petermind

In early Y22, Patrick's former commanding officer from the ninth group who had retired from Imperial service was kidnapped by the infamous criminal Adrian Owen. Adrian attempted to extort the ransom of 1.2 Billion credits from the Chief of ISB himself in exchange for the life of his former CO. Imperial policy of not negotiating with criminals was carried and Krakonico Petermind was murdered by Adrian in cold blood while still in captivity.

Adrian Owen Krakonico Petermind

The Imperial Security Bureau issued a warrant that morning for the arrest of Adrian Owen for capital crimes signed by the Bureau Chief of Imperial Security Patrick Bisson.

In Y23, The Bureau of Analysis received classified intelligence that Adrian Owen intended to access Imperial Space to collect stolen assets he acquired from Krakonico. The plan for capture was refined by the Ubiqtorate and there was a high level of confidence for success.

In the early hours of Coruscant local time, elite members of the Imperial Security Bureaus Counter-Terrorism cell deployed under the direct supervision of Bureau Chief Bisson. Forcing their way aboard the vessel the operatives laid waste to those who would oppose the will of the Empire. The ensuing close-quarters combat within the narrow halls of the ship was ruthless and ultimately led to the triumph of the Empire. The rumors were that Owen was personally killed by the Bureau Chief himself but he would not comment on the raid when asked.
