the son of Imperial Governor Marcellin Wessel, this Imperial General threw in his lot with Carnor Jax, in the wake of the destruction of Emperor Palpatine's clones on Byss. Jax commanded him to hunt down Kir Kanos at any cost, for the former Royal Imperial Guard held the secrets of Jax's past. He hoped to capture Kanos on Phaeda, after Colonel Shev's men were eliminated singlehandedly by Kanos. He knew of Shev's corrupt ways, and felt that Shev would ignore Jax's orders to stand down and avoid Kanos. In this he was correct, as they discovered when they arrived at Phaeda. Wessel and Jax managed to gather information which had Kanos fleeing to Yinchorr, and Jax ordered Wessel to take the Emperor's Revenge to Yinchorr to capture Kanos. Jax accompanied them, wanting to witness Kanos' destruction first-hand. However, Wessel was overconfident when he was able to capture the Scimitar Assault Bomber stolen by Kanos on Phaeda. He ordered the bomber brought aboard the Emperor's Revenge and opened, so that he could personally bring Kanos into custody. Jax recognized the trick being played on him by Kanos, and fled the Star Destroyer just before Wessel forced open the hatch to the bomber. The APA-5 dorid Kanos had placed in the pilot's seat announced the destruction of the bomber, and the explosion which resulted destroyed the Emperor's Revenge. Wessel and most of his troops were killed in the explosion, as Jax and Blim fled to the surface of Yinchorr in a shuttle.
