Biography[edit | edit source]
- "Glad you made it back in one piece! Me and my squad owe you one."
- ―Blyes thanking the individual who destroyed the signal jammers
Blyes was a Human male who served in the Galactic Republic's army during the time of the Cold War, a proxy conflict between the Sith Empire and the Republic. He held the rank of sergeant while deployed on the Republic planet of Ord Mantell during the Separatist War, a civil war where Republic forces aided the corrupt local government in fighting the anti-Republic Mantellian Separatist Movement.
At some point, the Separatists invaded Drelliad village, a critical point between the Republic base of Fort Garnik and Separatist-controlled territory, so Blyes and his squad from the Thirty-first Recon were assigned to scout the settlement but were ultimately engaged by an organized Separatist force near the village's entrance. During the exchange of fire, the sergeant attempted to contact headquarters on Fort Garnik due to the Separatists use of signal jammers within the village.
Due to this, Blyes was forced to ask a passing by Republic-aligned individual to disable the signal jammers in order to re-establish communications between his forward recon team and the other Republic forces in order to report the situation. Accepting this mission, the individual disabled the three signal jammers—as well as killing several Separatists—and returned to the Sergeant who awarded his rescuer with a weapon from his stock.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
During his assignment to Drelliad village, Blyes wore blue armor and a matching ribbed helmet along with a pair of beige pants, standard to most Republic Army's soldiers stationed on Ord Mantell. He was armed with a dark blaster rifle which he kept strapped to his back when not in use.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Blyes is a non-player character from the massively multi-player online role playing game Star Wars: The Old Republic released by BioWare in 2011. He is voiced by Nolan North. He is one of the first NPCs encountered by players of the Trooper or Smuggler class due to his location right next to the point at which each class starts when first created. It is not possible for players of the Imperial faction to interact with Blyes as there is currently no way Imperial characters can travel to Ord Mantell.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Mission: "Clearing the Air" on Ord Mantell
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Ord Mantell identifies generic non-player characters with the same uniform as Blyes as Mantellian Troopers. Star Wars: The Old Republic—Mission: "The Untold Story" on Ord Mantell has dialogue that refers to the pro-Republic forces as the Mantellian Army. Based on this information, it can be determined that Blyes was also a member of the Mantellian Army.
- Blyes led a recon squad in Drelliad, and a line of dialog in the game files states the hierarchic relation between him and Wesner : "I can't report in like this. Wesner! See if you can boost the power."
