Little is known about Sitolet's early life and early military career, except that he was childhood friends with João Rebelo, the Secretary of the Treasury. By 788 UC, he was a Vice Admiral and had spent several years as the headmaster of the Free Planets Alliance Officer Academy, where he was apparently well-respected by the cadets.
In 792 UC, Admiral Sitolet led the Alliance expeditionary fleet in the Fifth Battle of Iserlohn and came the closest in conquering Iserlohn Fortress by force with his "parallel pursuit" tactic. He succeeded in closing in to the formation of the Imperial Fleet and slowly pushed it back towards the fortress, confident that the fortress would not fire the Thor Hammer in the vicinity of its allies. However, he miscalculated the desperation of the fortress commander who, fearing for his life if Iserlohn Fortress fell to enemy hands, fired the Thor Hammer anyway and inflicted massive damage to both the Alliance and Imperial fleets. Sitolet was forced to pull back his surviving ships and the Fifth Battle of Iserlohn ended with yet another Imperial victory.
By 796 UC, Sitolet was promoted to the rank of Fleet Admiral and was the Joint Operations Headquarters Chief. As one of the few senior military officers who did not pay lip service to the Secretary of Defence Job Trunicht, his position was becoming increasingly tenuous especially in light of increasing Alliance military setbacks. It was under such circumstances that he appointed Yang Wenli as the commander of the 13th Fleet and tasked him with the seemingly impossible task of capturing Iserlohn Fortress.
Yang did not betray Sitolet's expectations when he succeeded in capturing Iserlohn Fortress in the Seventh Battle of Iserlohn. Although Yang had intended to retire after his triumphal return to Heinessen, Sitolet rejected it as he believed that the war would continue and Yang was going to be indispensable to the Alliance forces. His misgivings came true when the Alliance High Council approved a large scale invasion of Imperial territories. The invasion was to be carried out by eight numbered fleets and was the largest ever mobilisation in the history of the Free Planets Alliance. However, the invasion turned into a disaster when it fell for Reinhard von Lohengramm's scorched earth strategy and was conclusively defeated in the Battle of Amritsar in October 796 UC. As a result, Sitolet took responsibility for the defeat and retired from the military.
Sitolet picked up bee-keeping in the countryside after his retirement. However, he still retained an interest in current affairs, especially after the collapse of the Free Planets Alliance. In September 800 UC, he participated in a memorial service held in Heinessenpolis which turned into a bloody riot. He was detained by Imperial soldiers under the command of Oskar von Reuenthal, the Governor-General of Neue Land as a suspect for instigating the riot. However, after a personal interview by Reuenthal, he was set free, albeit under constant surveillance.
In March 801 UC, Sitolet was detained once again under Paul von Oberstein's so-called "Grass-mowing Operation". Sitolet and over five thousand other former public and senior military figures of the Free Planets Alliance were detained for the purpose of being used as negotiation fodder against the Iserlohn Republic Government. This never came to fruition however after a riot broke out in Rugpool Prison where they were detained in. Sitolet was injured during the riot and was later set free by the orders of Reinhard and continued his life of retirement.
