Gilad Paelleon served as the captain of the Chimera and second-in-command to Grand Admiral Thrawn. Upon Thrawn's death, Paelleon organized the Imperial retreat, saving as many ships as he could from certain defeat. Over time, he was elevated to Supreme Commander of Imperial Forces. Admiral Paelleon was the Imperial representative that signed the peace treaty with the New Republic, bringing a formal end to the Galactic Civil War. The Empire was reduced to a small sector of space adjacent to the New Republic. Admiral Paelleon continued to preside over the Armed Forces of the Empire until called upon by Leia Organa Solo for his assistance in combatting the Yuuzhan Vong threat. The admiral committed his every available resource to the fight and served as overall commander of Imperial and New Republic Forces during the Battle of Ithor. Following the somewhat tainted victory at Ithor, the Empire recalled Paelleon and his forces to defend Imperial Space from the Yuuzhan Vong.
