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. After Tom arrives back from his mission to save the harnessed kids, Cole walks up to Tom, saying that he hopes that he won't go on any other missions as it is to dangerous. Later, he goes to the meeting to speak about the possible mole that has infiltrated the 2nd Mass. Cole says that it could be anyone, and that they have Skitters walking around Charleston who could be the mole.

"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. Later, when they are evacuated from the base to avoid a beamer attack, Bressler again pilots the aircraft, following the one that carries the Hathaway and Cochise. During flight, a beamer intercepts the two planes, and brings them both down.

"Search and Recover"Edit

During the crash, Bressler is killed when a tree branch breaks through the window and impales Cole in the chest. When Tom wakes up, he looks at Cole's body, which is next to him, then gets out of the aircraft with Pope. After getting out, the aircraft soon explodes, destroying Cole's body.
