23rd Air Assault Force (Clan Fire Mandrill)
|23rd Air Assault Force|
|Unit Profile (as of 3059)|
|Parent Formation||Kindraa Mick-Kreese|
The Blood Spirits and the Star Adders had been fighting on Circe for some time before saKhan Kline brought Kindraa Mick-Kreese-Kline to the planet in January 3071. She offered aid to the allied Blood Spirits but this was refused, after this she issued a Trial of Possession for two former Snow Raven enclaves that the Adders had recently taken. Galaxy Commander Daniels refused as fighting was ongoing. Kline landed her forces anyway which the Star Adders took as a breach of trial and declared both Clans dezgra and lifted zellbrigen against them. The Spirits and the Mandrills called for hegira but were refused. In the fighting the Twenty-third was wiped out.
