Role in the Series
Vult Skerris makes his debut appearance in "The Antilles Extraction" as a Captain in the Imperial Starfighter Corp and the Headmaster of Skystrike Academy. He ruthlessly trained his students to be skilled pilots who follow any orders without question. Suddenly, Skystrike receives a visit from Governor Arihnda Pryce and Agent Kallus, who inform him that some of his students are traitors to the Empire. Pryce helps him nab the defecting cadets but Sabine Wren helps them escape.
Vult Skerris makes his second appearance in "Secret Cargo". It is revealed that he has been assigned to the Imperial Navy and promoted to Commander. He is dispatched by Thrawn in his prototype TIE Defender to help Governor Pryce and Admiral Kassius Konstantine hunt down rogue Senator Mon Mothma, who has been excommunicated from the Imperial Senate as a traitor. Thanks to the Defender, Vult is able to overwhelm the rogue Senator's escort but Ezra Bridger helps them fight him off long enough for Mon Mothma to escape.
He made his third appearance in "Flight of the Defender" where it was revealed that Thrawn had put him in charge of the TIE Defender initiative, which was at the time in mass production.
He made his final appearance in "Rebel Assault" where he ignored Thrawn's orders to withdraw as Skerris wants to destroy Hera. She managed to shot him down.
