A male Yresilini was trained as a general by the Chiss student Sev'rance Tann at some point by 22 BBY. Tann had been challenged by a professor at the Chiss Academy to train a group of Yresilini into an army, overcoming the species' perceived untrainable nature. Tann began by appointing one Yresilini as a general and giving him several rudimentary commands, which the general and his fellow creatures laughed at. Tann had the general executed in front of the other Yresilini, and then chose a successor who obeyed her instructions implicitly and led the other Yresilini to do likewise.
Behind the scenes
The Yresilini general was mentioned in Sev'rance Tann's databank entry in the 2002 LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns.

Notes and references
- According to Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns, Sev'rance Tann had left the Unknown Regions, where the Chiss Academy was located, prior to her participation in the Battle of Geonosis, which The New Essential Chronology places in 22 BBY. Therefore, the training and death of the Yresilini general, which took place during Tann's time at the Academy, must have occurred at some point by that year.
