History[edit]

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

When Garret Sainze was elected to ilKhan in February 3071 he 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 most of his warriors.[4] The newly elected Khan, Amanda Carrol, authorised Kindraa Mick-Kreese-Kline to absorb the shattered remnants of Kidraa Sainze in March 3071. She saw the Mandrills would need to unite as further challenges would result from Garret Sainze's death.[5] It appears likely that the Nineteenth was the last functioning cluster and was absorbed. The expected challenges came quickly and by January 3072 Kindraa Mick-Kline-Kreese-Sainze had ceased to exist.

Officers[edit]

In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Draymon Sainze.[6] By 3067 the commander was Star Colonel Jek Sainze.[2]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster had no special tactical traits.
