"We have an unsanctioned departure from Bay Two."
"Alert General Hux. And stop that fighter!"
―Thanisson and Colonel Kaplan[src]

Thanisson was a human male who served the First Order as a petty officer on board the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Finalizer, the flagship of General Armitage Hux. While on the bridge he wore a black uniform marked with the First Order insignia, along with black boots an intercomm headset. Thanisson had fair skin and blond hair.[2]

He was present aboard the Finalizer during the raid on Jakku, and reported the theft of a TIE/sf space superiority fighter by the rogue stormtrooper FN-2187 and the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron.[1] Dameron and Finn then fired upon the hangar command center where Thanisson was seated, flinging the petty officer from his chair amongst the shattered remnants of the window in front of him.[3]
