Admiral Ers'ikaro of the Chiss Ascendancy's Defense Force was a Chiss flag officer who commanded the Firewolf man-of-war warship Bellicose during a crisis in the Ascendancy in 18 BBY. During the conflict, the flag officer stopped a skirmish between the Tahmie and Droc families before it could further escalate.
In the same year, Ers'ikaro was present in a meeting room where Senior Captain Mitth'raw'nuruodo "Thrawn" was sentenced to exile from the Ascendancy due to his preemptive strikes against various nations. Ers'ikaro, along with four other admirals, delivered the verdict to Thrawn himself. During his exile, Thrawn strongly remembered Ers'ikaro and the other admirals rising from their chairs to announce their decision.
Behind the scenes
