Gleeson Wells was a male Human who worked for a Galactic Empire as a technician in the Imperial Data Processing Facility on the planet Tazan. Sometime after the destruction of the planet Alderaan, Wells was servicing some blaster rifles in the Processing Facility's armory when he encountered a team of Rebel Alliance agents that had infiltrated the base. Wells attacked the agents with a screwdriver and attempted to make his way to the base's guardroom, so that he could raise the alarm.
