The 1st Falcon Velites are a second line Cluster in Clan Jade Falcon's touman.[1]

History[edit]

In 3059 the First Velites were stationed along the Jade Falcon/Periphery border. There they dealt with pirates raiding the Falcon-held systems. These pirates were based out of Stars End and the raids increased dissatisfaction with the residents of the former Greater Valkyrate. As a result of this, the Velites also engaged in several indoctrination sweeps that blanketed the worlds with pro-Falcon propaganda.[2]

During the Clan Jade Falcon Incursion into the Lyran Alliance, they took the world of Domain from Clan Wolf.[3] In 3067 they remained on Domain as the world's garrison.[1]

In June 3069 the First Velites faced the 1st Kell Hounds on Graceland. The Falcons killed Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Allard in this engagement.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Serendice Prentice.[2]

Star Colonel Lauchian Buhalin was the Velite's commander in 3067.[1]
