this man served as the Imperial Colonel guarding the Mount Tantiss project on Wayland, during the early years of the New Republic. Selid earned his rank at a young age, was known for his no-nonsense approach to his duties, and rarely took time off from his job. Although he rankled at being given command of the Mount Tantiss base - considering it mere baby-sitting rather than a real command - he became involved in a battle of wills with Joruus C'baoth after the Guardian appeared on the planet. It was Selid who was forced to relay information on the death of General Covell to Thrawn and Captain Gilad Pellaeon, but the information available to him was incomplete. Selid was then faced with a series of strange orders from Thrawn, who had recognized that Covell's death was attributable to the insane Dark Jedi, Joruus C'baoth. Thrawn ordered Selid to seal off C'baoth in the Emperor's chambers, then seal off the mountain from any of the troops which had been in contact with either C'baoth or Covell. Selid didn't understand, but he moved swiftly to carry out the orders.
