Sir Peter Dresari (also known as Colonel Sharpe or Duke Sharpe, his noble title) was a member of the ruling family on Kentares IV and served as a Colonel in the Fourth Davion Guards. In late 3062, Sir Peter was the leader of the anti-Steiner resistance forces that sought to free Kentares from the oppressive rule of Lord Marcus Roland.[1]



Sir Peter was killed in action fighting Duncan Burke, one of Roland's henchmen. Command of the Kentares resistance passed on to Sir Peter's nephew, Ian Dresari.[2]


During his first mission in game, he piloted a Cougar, and in the next mission, a Hellspawn. It is unknown if this mech was the one he commands during his last mission, but is highly probable: that may explain why Duncan Burke defeated and killed him so easily, as he had a Summoner. It is known that Col. Peter Dresari had split off to save a convoy of technicians, as described by Jules Gonzales: "Two Lances. The Colonel ordered me to head north with the convoy. He split off to try and pull ‘em away. Sorry." If he had to single-handedly fight two lances, including Burke's Summoner, having never piloted anything heavier than a Hellspawn on Kentares' moon, it is clear why the colonel had little chance for survival or victory against such odds. Moreover, it is also known he ejected before Burke was "halfway through with him", leaving fewer odds for victory. Burke shot his escape pod, and then bragged about his easy victory and the execution of the defenseless colonel: "He and his escape pod are scattered over the better part of a kilometer. Messy."
