"This is not a cattle market in Shaum Hii, Lieutenant Tschel. This is the bridge of an Imperial Star Destroyer. Routine information is not—repeat, not—simply shouted in the general direction of its intended recipient. Is that clear?"
Captain Gilad Pellaeon[src]

Tschel was a human male who was military officer in the military forces of the Galactic Empire, characteristic of Imperial personnel who came of age after the Battle of Endor.


By 9 ABY, Tschel held the rank of Lieutenant, and was assigned as a bridge officer aboard the Star Destroyer Chimaera, then serving as the command ship of Grand Admiral Thrawn himself. In the eyes of the flagship's captain, Gilad Pellaeon, Tschel was absurdly young to hold such an important post, with a lack of experience and self-control for which his training and enthusiasm could not compensate—but also all too typical of the young volunteers and conscripts who now made up the bulk of the Starfleet's front-line forces, and hardly to be blamed for his own lack of combat experience.

The subsequent campaign against the New Republic tempered and hardened Tschel and other young officers like him, but little is known of his service over the subsequent decade after the Battle of Bilbringi.

Ten years later, Tschel served as a bridge officer aboard the Chimaera with the rank of Major under Captain Ardiff.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Tschel first appeared in the 1991 novel Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn.
