History[edit]

Formation in the Late Dark Age[edit]

Created by Aleksandr Hazen, the newly appointed Galaxy Commander of Zeta Galaxy decided to reorganize his Galaxy by merging Solahama based Cluster of tired old Warriors with the newly blooded young warriors of the Eyrie Clusters. The mixing of the two proved as method of using older warriors to help the younger ones on how to fight. The merge of the two types of Clusters was part of a plan to combat issues with weakness in Solahma and Eyrie Clusters.[1][2]

The First Mixed first saw action as it was deployed with Zeta Galaxy to carve parts of the Republic of the Sphere into a annexed occupation zone for Clan Jade Falcon in 3134. Fighting on number of worlds and garrisoning them. Its most notable action when it was deployed with the rest of Zeta Galaxy in its entirety to raid Porrima.[3]
