Armand Isard was a human male who served in the Galactic Republic prior and during the Clone Wars, eventually serving as the Director of the Senate Bureau of Intelligence.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Armand Isard first appeared in Star Wars canon in James Luceno's 2014 novel Tarkin. Before that, Armand Isard first appeared in Timothy Zahn's and Michael A. Stackpole's 1999 Star Wars Legends short story Interlude at Darkknell. Isard's inclusion in Tarkin by Luceno was because he fit into a role that was part of the story Luceno was writing, hence his inclusion rather than the invention of some new character.
