General Talan is Leader Dessler's defense minister, one his most loyal officers, and a commander of the scattered remnants of the Gamilas Empire after the fall of Gamilas.

He introduces Dessler Mines to his leader in 2199 as part of an attempt to destroy the Earth Defense Force space battleship Yamato ("Resolution! Break Through the Gamilas' Absolute Defense Line!").

He is more level-headed than his leader and is able to convince Dessler to abandon his flagship when all is lost. He is also an extremely skillful pilot, rescuing Dessler from the White Comet Empire's pursuing ships.[citation needed]
