Summary
Walex Blissex was a doctor and engineer of starship design, and later a general of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, esteemed and respected throughout the galaxy. His designs ranged from mammoth warships to minuscule starfighters, and his clients ranged from pan-galactic governments to insurrectionist rebellion movements. Working for such shipyards as Kuat Systems Engineering and Rendili StarDrive, Blissex created mainstays of the Grand Army of the Republic, such as the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, and the Victory-class Star Destroyer. Blissex himself was not at ease with creating craft that could and would be used as killing machines, but he consoled himself with the fact that they were being used to police the galaxy and keep others from harm. Unable to use a computer properly, Blissex relied on assistants and his daughter, Lira. When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine made his grab for unlimited power in 19 BBY, Blissex rejected his New Order and quietly became a founding member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Lira, however, had other ideas, and essentially took her father's role in the Galactic Empire. Despite this, she was not as talented as her father, and when the Galactic Civil War broke out twenty years later, the domestic dispute between Blissex and Lira became intertwined with galactic affairs. The two would tangle throughout the war, with Lira consistently trying to trap or murder her father. Blissex overcame all obstacles however, and was able to serve the Alliance faithfully until it became the New Republic. In his later years, Blissex would see less active duty, but would serve with Jan Dodonna's "Gray Cadre" and eventually design the Republic-class Star Destroyer.
