Description: Gherant was a Human male commander of the Imperial Navy during the height of the Galactic Civil War. By 3 ABY, Gherant had been hand-picked by then-Captain Firmus Piett to an assignment aboard Darth Vader's personal flagship, the Star Dreadnought Executor, where he was responsible for overseeing authorized access of the Super Star Destroyer's sensitive areas.

During the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, Gherant served aboard the Executor's bridge, under the command of the since-promoted Admiral Piett, as the fleet commander of the giant Imperial armada assembled to protect the unfinished second Death Star from Rebel Alliance attack. Gherant died during the battle along with Piett when a wayward Rebel RZ-1 A-wing interceptor crashed into the Executor's bridge tower, destroying the Super Star Destroyer shortly thereafter.

Gherant was a commander of the Imperial Navy during the Galactic Civil War, serving aboard Darth Vader's personal flagship, the Super Star Destroyer Executor, attached to the Imperial Death Squadron, by 3 ABY. Prior to the Battle of Hoth, then-Captain Firmus Piett personally selected Gherant as a deck officer to Vader's command ship. Gherant was responsible for preventing unauthorized access to sensitive areas of the Executor.

Gherant's service aboard the Executor continued into 4 ABY, while Piett himself ascended to the rank of admiral in charge of Vader's flagship. During the Battle of Endor of that year, Gherant served aboard the Executor's bridge alongside Piett as the fleet commander in charge of the massive Imperial Star Destroyer armada assembled in the Endor system to both protect the incomplete second Death Star and to ambush the imminently-arriving Alliance Fleet, which had come to destroy the battlestation.

As the Imperial Fleet under Piett's command reached attack position at the beginning of the battle, Gherant was left flabbergasted by Piett's order for the Executor to refrain from engaging the Alliance Fleet. Piett explained that his orders came down from the highest authorityā€”Emperor Palpatine himself had instructed the Executor and the remainder of the Imperial Fleet to simply hold the Rebel capital ships at bay to give the Death Star's secretly operational superlaser the opportunity pick them off one by one.

Gherant and Piett both died at the apex of the battle when the wayward A-wing starfighter of Rebel pilot Arvel Crynyd crashed into the Executor's unprotected command tower after the Super Star Destroyer's main bridge deflector shields had been knocked out. Although Gherant had seen the starfighter barreling out of control toward the bridge, there was little he could do to escape. With primary bridge control lost, the Executor plummeted into the Death Star's gravity well, obliterating upon impact.

Personality and traits
During the Battle of Endor, the Human Gherant was surprised to learn that the Executor would not enter the fray after reaching attack position. Gherant had brown hair, blue eyes, and light skin.

Commander Gherant wore the standard-issue Imperial officer's uniform with a cap that included an Imperial officer's disc, a rank insignia plaque with three red and three blue squares, and a code cylinder during the Battle of Endor.
