Rebellion leader looking to engineer his redemption
A short, middle-aged man, the years of work Walex has put into fighting and hiding from the Empire have taken a toll int he form of the lines and wrinkles on his face.
Walex Blissex was a doctor and engineer of starship design, and later a general of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, esteemed and respected throughout the galaxy. His designs ranged from mammoth warships to minuscule starfighters, and his clients ranged from pan-galactic governments to insurrectionist rebellion movements.
Working for such shipyards as Kuat Systems Engineering and Rendili StarDrive, Blissex created mainstays of the Grand Army of the Republic, such as the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, and the Victory-class Star Destroyer. Blissex himself was not at ease with creating craft that could and would be used as killing machines, but he consoled himself with the fact that they were being used to police the galaxy and keep others from harm. Unable to use a computer properly, Blissex relied on assistants and his daughter,
Lira. When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine made his grab for unlimited power in 19 BBY, Blissex rejected his New Order and quietly became a founding member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
