Blaise Gatti was the Viceregal press secretary on Sergyar in the Barrayaran Empire. Young and enthusiastic, he was eager to generate publicity; as it happened, Cordelia Vorkosigan's main goal was to make publicity go away.

He was Half-Komarran and half-Barrayaran; his family from Komarr was also in the news business. Although he'd gotten his position via nepotism through Laisa Toscane's family, he did a good job for the viceroy.

He got particularly spectacular pictures of Admiral Jole protecting Cordelia's grandchildren at the time of Jole's birthday party.
