So cold that she had her own father executed in order to attain his position as Director of Imperial Intelligence, Ysanne Isard quickly gained the moniker, "Iceheart".
She also was de facto leader of the Empire soon after the Battle of Endor.
The story goes something like this: Grand Vizier Sate Prestage was the closest thing the First Galactic Empire had to a "legitimate" successor to Palpatine. Beneath him was a kind of Ruling Circle. Beneath them, at least according to the flowchart, was the Director of Imperial Intelligence. So she had Prestage and every member of the Ruling Circle killed and assumed control of the Empire.
She was never invested as Empress. Most of her reign was split between fending off rival warlords who believed themselves worthy of the title, "Emperor", and in continuing to pursue what she still called the Rebel Alliance (but was, in actuality, the New Republic).
The most notable engagement with the New Republic was an event known as the Bacta War. She started it, reaped a ton of war profits off it, and ended the war having cloned herself, but having lost her ship.
She and her clone were both killed during the events of Dark Empire.
The ship carrying her flag is the Lusankya.
Most of her story is told within the Rogue Squadron books by Michael A. Stackpole. However, her early life and her ultimate demise are told in Stackpole's work for Dark Horse Comics.
