Armand Isard was the father of Ysanne Isard. Poor man. He led Imperial Intelligence until his daughter locked him in a turbolift shaft and left him to die, which he did, but only after surviving long enough to form a new civilization with his fellow prisoners. Unfortunately for posterity, Armand's civilization self-destructed when racial and social strife consumed it, leading to a collapse of agricultural infrastructure and severe famines which forced survivors to resort to cannibalism. Armand Isard was among the first to go.
