Desanne was an Imperial Navy Commander from Kalist VI. Due to a political blunder in 3 ABY, Commander Desanne was stripped of most official duties and relegated to shuttling dignitaries and high ranking Imperial officials. After Darth Vader failed to catch Luke Skywalker on Cloud City, Vader had Desanne bring his shuttle to transport him to the Executor.


Desanne, a human male, hailed from the Planet Kalist VI in the Deep Core. During the Galactic Civil War, he served in the Imperial Navy as a Commander. He was stripped of most official duties due to a political blunder in the year 3 ABY, and as a result, he was relegated to shuttling Dignitaires and High-Ranking Imperial's.[1][3]

That year, Desanne was present in holographic form during a conference of twenty other battleship aboard the Star Dreadnought Executor, the flagship of the Sith Darth Vader to discuss the whereabouts of a Corellian YT-1300 light freighter, the Millenium Falcon, which had escaped the secret Rebel base during the Battle of Hoth. During the meeting, at least one officer was killed when an asteroid hit the bridge of his star destroyer.[2]

Later on, Desanne was present on Cloud City, with a small Unit of Imperial Stormtrooper's accompanying him. After Vader tracked down the freighter to the city, he managed to successfully capture the ship's pilot, Han Solo, and the rest of it's crew. Sometime later however, he would also encounter Luke Skywalker, the young man who blew up the Death Star Battlestation three years prior. They dueled, and Skywalker eventually escaped Vader's wrath, along with what remained of the Falcon's crew. Desanne and his stormtrooper's would later accompany Vader[3], who told Desanne to alert his star destroyer to prepare for his arrival. They then entered a Lambda-class shuttle and departed towards the Executor to continue the pursuit.[2]
