"There are a hundred different threats out there that would freeze your blood if you knew about them."
―Stent, to Mara Jade Skywalker[src]

Kres'ten'tarthi, better known by his core name of Stent, was one of the Chiss followers of Syndic Mitth'raw'nuruodo, better known as Grand Admiral Thrawn. Although Thrawn died in 9 ABY, Stent remained loyal to him, and by 19 ABY, he was serving as Commander of Thrawn's Household Phalanx, based at the Hand of Thrawn on Nirauan. This was a "rogue phalanx" that was not part of the Chiss military and did not take orders from the Chiss government, but appears in practice to have operated under the command of Imperial General Baron Soontir Fel. On at least one occasion, Stent explicitly identified the Phalanx as being under the authority of the Empire of the Hand.

Stent was almost killed later that year in a pirate raid while visiting a Chiss Expansionary Defense Force military academy on Rhigar, but in 22 ABY, he appeared again at Nirauan.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia resolved Stent's death timeline problem, stating that Stent surived the attack on the Rhigar academy.[1]
