Ysanne Isard, last Director of Imperial Intelligence under Palpatine's Galactic Empire

Director of Imperial Intelligence or Internal Security Director was the title given to the person appointed to command and direct the activities and agents of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Intelligence. The position was considered to be a direct successor to that of Director of the Senate Bureau of Intelligence for when Palpatine established the Galactic Empire three years after the First Battle of Geonosis, the bureau became Imperial Intelligence. Under the Empire, this post was considered a part and in command of the Ubiqtorate—the highest level of command within Imperial Intelligence—this post was one of much power and prestige. The post is known to have been held by only two persons, Armand Isard, who was appointed to his position under the Galactic Republic by then-Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, and succeeded by his daughter Ysanne Isard, who had Armand Isard executed and was then appointed in his place by Emperor Palpatine. This post would eventually come to command the whole of the Empire after the death of Palpatine and his Grand Vizier Sate Pestage, though the position was never meant for such authority.

At some point, the Emperor's Hand Cronal would lead the Intelligence Agency, though at some point would step down from the the position. Whenever he held the position is difficult to determine.
