Description: Lieutenant Yogar Lyste, operating number: LSM-03, was an officer of the Galactic Empire several years prior to the Battle of Yavin. He was stationed on the planet Lothal, where he served as Imperial Supply Master of Capital City; keeping track of all weapons and gear shipped in, as well as any produced locally. In 3 BBY, Lyste was placed in charge of a military depot and hosted a relief mission led by Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan. The theft of three Sphyrna-class corvettes by the Spectres caused him considerable embarrassment.
Eventually, Lyste was promoted to the rank of lieutenant and made acting captain of an Imperial light cruiser. With his new position, he was responsible for monitoring who and what entered the star system, specifically aimed at defending the planets from rebels. In 2 BBY, Lieutenant Lyste came under the command of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who took an interest in the rebel insurgency in the Lothal sector. During the course of Thrawn's investigation into the identity of the rebel agent Fulcrum, Lyste was framed by his colleague, the Imperial Security Bureau Agent Kallus.
Personality and traits
Young and ambitious, Lyste exuded confidence in the performance of his duties, exhibiting a great amount of pride. He took his position as Supply Master, and later lieutenant and acting captain of his own Imperial light cruiser, seriously, and cared little for anyone standing in his way. Charged with securing land on Lothal, he attempted to negotiate before resorting to force, as he was not keen on unnecessary violence. However, when forced to use drastic measures, he did not hesitate to use force. One such example was when he was ordered to clear farmers from their land. Despite his confidence, he proved unable to stop rebels Bridger and Garazeb Orrelios from freeing his prisoners, and later failed at ensuring that Organa's vessels were not "stolen" by the same group of dissidents.
Wren had some respect for him, noting that he had started beefing up security and describing him in her personal journal as "not a complete dummy." Unlike many other officers, he was quite understanding of the failures of his subordinates. He also showed concern for the people of Lothal during the presence of the Imperial blockade, telling Organa that he wanted to make sure that her supplies got to the impoverished citizens. Despite his preparations to secure the Hammerhead corvettes with gravity locks, he was outmatched by the bold cunning and ingenuity of his rebel opponents. Lyste felt humiliated by this incident and sought to curry favor with the Imperial military leadership.
Lyste was briefly shocked by Thrawn's killing of the factory worker Sumar during a test demonstration, but nevertheless complied with the Admiral's orders to detain and question the workers. He was outfoxed by the Spectres' escape tactics, including staging diversions. Unlike Thrawn and Kallus, he lacked an appreciation for art and once, when asked for his opinion of one of Wren's graffiti pieces, described it solely as a piece of the retaining wall.
Lyste took pride in his successful efforts to apprehend the rebel Bridger, who was posing as a bounty hunter. However, he was unaware that Bridger had staged the capture in order to rescue Kallus, who was the secret rebel informant Fulcrum. Lyste viewed the capture of Bridger as an opportunity to regain favor with the Imperial High Command following the incident with Organa. He was enthusiastic about helping Thrawn capture the rebel agent. Kallus took advantage of Lyste's woeful lack of experience and naivety to manipulate him into believing that Pryce was Fulcrum in order to frame the lieutenant. Lyste's trust in Kallus and inexperience proved to be his undoing.
