- "At least that way we'd go down fighting. Your way... there's no honor in surrender, Admiral."
- ―High General Hestiv to Admiral Pellaeon
Hestiv was a High General of the Imperial Remnant, in command of the Imperial forces of Yaga Minor at the time of the Caamas Document Crisis and the attempted coup of the Imperial Remnant by Moff Disra, Royal Guardsman Grodin Tierce, and the con-artist Flim in 19 ABY.
In the last days of the Caamas Document Crisis and the Galactic Civil War, he agreed to allow the New Republic's expert slicer Zakarisz Ghent search the databank files of the Ubiqtorate base at Yaga Minor for an original copy of the Caamas Document.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "A pity the Emperor didn't work harder at that kind of public relations himself twenty years ago."
"A pity someone who wasn't so insanely blind with power didn't overthrow him while there was still time. There must have been hundreds of competent administrators or Fleet officers who could have kept the Empire alive."
- ―Admiral Pellaeon and General Hestiv
Hestiv was a competent and loyal Imperial officer. On relative good terms with the native Yagai, he disagreed with Palpatine's brutal and intolerent politics. He also bitterly regretted not to have served under Grand Admiral Thrawn.
