Brigadier General Cole Bressler was the commanding officer of the 1st Continental Army. Not much is known about him before the invasion other than that he must have been in some place of military authority. Although, it is known that he didn't trust the Skitter Rebellion, because a skitter killed his son.


Season 2Edit

"The Price of Greatness"Edit

Cole was responsible for locking up a free de-harnessed kid sent by the skitter leader and served Arthur Manchester loyally untill he betrayed Manchester by arresting him, temporarily disbanding the civilian government, and declaring martial law.

"A More Perfect Union"Edit

Some time later, he allowed Arthur Manchester to be released and the civilian government restored on the condition that Manchester resigned as majority leader, which Manchester accepted. After meeting with the skitter leader, he ordered his men to set up and ambush on the skitter rebels and free de-harnessed kids, which was almost succesful, but Red Eye and a couple others got away.

Season 3Edit

"On Thin Ice"Edit

Several months after the arrival of the Volm, General Bressler is still skeptical of the Volm.

"Collateral Damage"Edit




"At All Costs"Edit

General Bressler later pilots the aircraft that carries Tom Mason, Cochise, and John Pope to President Hathaway's base.
