Records indicate Patrick Bisson is a Hapani male of unknown origins.
Patrick was one of the few survivors of the thermal bomb attack aboard a T2 station. Having suffered amnesia from the concussion he had no recollection of his previous life only an identification card issued by the Galactic Empire containing his name, race, and date of birth. The attack left over three thousand civilians dead with rebel insurgents claiming responsibility shortly after.
After 6 months on an Imperial hospital station, Patrick was given a clean bill of health, although he never did regain his memories. After being discharged with nowhere to go, he found his only option to be the military. He enlisted in the Imperial Navy and was accepted into the Coruscani Pilot Institute Y11.
At CPI Patrick was surrounded by the children of famous military families. He grew to resent the pilots that 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.
Y14 D105 - Patrick was commissioned from the ranks and received command training at Prefsbelt IV Naval Academy, a prestigious fleet institution modeled after the ancient warrior traditions of Coruscant. It's hangars and landing strips are constantly buzzing with activity. 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.
It was during Operation Pittin where 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 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 recommendation of Commodore Euler.
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 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 in order 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 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 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 ████████.
