"I'm Commander Byten, Imperial Non-human Relations. My men were extracting a key political prisoner from the lower cells. Something went wrong."

Byten was a Human male who was a commander in Imperial Non-human Relations, a division of the Sith Empire during the Galactic War. During the invasion of Belsavis, Byten dispatched a unit to retrieve Prince Shange, a Cathar who had opposed his species' joining the Galactic Republic and was imprisoned on Belsavis. Though Byten's unit was wiped out, he was able to recruit other Imperials in the area to free Shange, allowing the Empire to spin Shange's story in an attempt to break the Cathar loyalty to the Republic.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
