Lieutenant Dissek was an alias used by Kell Tainer while posing as a member of the Hawk-bat Independent Space Force during a mission for Wraith Squadron. Tainer's concocted backstory for Dissek was that he was an Alderaanian with an expertise in hand-to-hand combat. While disguised as Dissek, Tainer wore a wig with flowing red hair. During a meeting on the Iron Fist, "Dissek" was provoked by a stormtrooper, and keeping to the arrogant personality that he had assigned to the character, Tainer knocked the trooper unconscious. "Dissek" claimed that the action was simply a reflex, and the stormtrooper's superior, General Melvar accepted the explanation, simply impressed by "Dissek"'s skill.
