1st Marik Protectors

First Marik Protectors
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Nickname Kendall Hammers
Parent Formation Marik Protectors
Formed 3079[1]


The First Marik Protectors were formed in 3079 after the dissolution of the Free Worlds League. Formerly the 10th Marik Militia, the unit founded as a mercenary force that protected former League systems. They hired themselves out at low rates, allowing these independent systems to have protection they would otherwise lack. They retained the insignia of their former unit, and modified their name to reflect their new baseworld.[1] In 3085 they were based on Kendall.[2]

Increasing pressure on Kendall forced the unit to move to Kearny.[3] Despite having a single 'Mech battalion, the unit maintains a brigade of armor and a brigade of infantry. This allows the First to focus on the defensive tactics often needed by independent systems.[4]


As of 3085 the commanding officer was Force Commander Yoshio Kawamura.[2]

In 3145 the commanding officer is Colonel Neva Blackwell.[5]


The First specialized in defensive tactics.[4]
