Biography

Galactic Republic

"She is a remarkable vessel. With the engineering breakthroughs we tackled developing her, she's just the start. She's a real sign of things to come."
―Walex Blissex[src]

In 22 BBY, Walex Blissex was working at Kuat Drive Yards, with the title of Project Engineer. He designed and developed the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, a small craft purpose-built for use by the Jedi Order. Blissex was proud of his craft, and joined in the unveiling on Kuat with Senator Risi Lenoan, and Jedi Knights Adi Gallia and Aayla Secura. Blissex took this opportunity to speak to HoloNet News.[2]

In the waning days of the Galactic Republic and the Clone Wars, Blissex designed the Victory-class Star Destroyer for Rendili StarDrive. The craft was considered to be among the best of its kind, and although it saw limited use by the Republic, it would be a mainstay of the Galactic Empire fleet in the future.[3]

Most importantly, however, he was the mind behind the Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighter, that would be the predecessor of the Empire's TIE Fighter.

Walex Blissex.

In 4 ABY, Blissex was present aboard the Home One, in preparation for the climactic Battle of Endor.[4]

Later, Blissex sided with the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. He helped Jan Dodonna modify the R-22 Spearhead into the fast, nimble A-wing starfighter. For this service to the Rebellion, he was made an honorary general.[5] Blissex later designed the Republic-class Star Destroyer for the New Republic.

Engineering aptitude ran in the Blissex family. His daughter, Lira Wessex, was responsible for the Venator-class Star Destroyer, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer, and the Executor-class Star Dreadnought. Ironically, the Executor was destroyed when one of the A-wings designed by her father rammed its bridge.
