Commander Scales was one of Lord Marshal Zhylaw's top-ranked officers in the entire Necromonger Empire. After they had conquered Helion Prime, Scales offered to lead an attack to Helion Two, estimating a loss of 20000 men and five Warrior Ships, Lord Marshal Zhylaw had something more artful in mind and denied his request. He was a prime candidate to peacefully succeed Zhylaw before he was killed by Riddick. Commander Scales' fate is currently unknown.[1]
