- "We stay neutral, so you don't have to."
- ―Addalar Hyland's company motto
Addalar Hyland was a Human male who founded Galactic Solutions Industries, a personal weapons manufacturing company, on the moon of Nar Shaddaa around 3642 BBY as the Galactic War erupted. He also had a relative named Arnell Hyland who he employed at GSI Headquarters. The entrepreneur also founded The Hyland Organization for Rakghoul Neutralization (THORN), in hopes of eradicating the rakghoul plague in the galaxy; however, few were aware that Hyland had lost two of his children to the rakghoul pandemic on Tatooine. The loss of his children led him to divert a great deal of wealth to THORN in hopes of eliminating the plague.
