History[edit]

Fourteenth Sainze Rear Guard Battle Cluster was a second line Cluster of Kindraa Sainze. In 3059 and 3067 the Cluster was stationed on Shadow.[1][2]

Garret Sainze was elected to ilKhan in February 3071, but did not handle the position well. Disgusted at the entire political circus taking place, Scorpion Khan Ariel Suvorov declared a Trial of Refusal against Sainze's election as ilKhan, declaring him an incompetent leader with delusions of glory.[3] With no choice but to accept or lose what little respect he had left, Sainze met Suvorov's forces on Shadow. In a three-day campaign four Clusters from his Kindraa battled a like number of Goliath Scorpions; by the end of the fighting Sainze had perished, along with the Fourteenth Sainze Rear Guard Battle Cluster.[4]

In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Jemm Sainze.[5] By 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Collin. [2]
