History[edit]

Operation Revival[edit]

Tukayyid[edit]

The 250th Assault Cluster landed with the rest of Alpha Galaxy and was part of the assault force at the Devil's Bath. It was here that the Cluster was badly mauled in combat with the ComGuard Sixth Army. The few survivors were mostly assigned to the 400th Assault Cluster.[2][3]

Beta Striker Star killed a ComGuard MechWarrior on Tukayyid named Bordon Hallis. He was a direct descendant of General Frederick Hallis of the SLDF, who was a Bloodnamed warrior of the Not-Named Clan. By Clan law, if all descendants of a Bloodname of the Not-Named Clan are killed in battle, their vanquishers can earn the right of creating a new Bloodright and house. The survivors of Beta Star were given the opportunity to track down Hallis' warrior relatives in the Inner Sphere, kill them in battle, and lay claim the right to establish their own Bloodright and house within their clan.[4]

Despite this covert action by a Star of warriors, the Cluster was officially disbanded.

Officers[edit]

The last Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Lev Gerard, who was transferred to command the second-line Second Fang Cluster.[5]
