History[edit]

The Second Kell Hounds Regiment was formed from a collection of smaller mercenary units. Each of these smaller units had been led by a former member of the Kell Hounds, and when Morgan Kell took command in 3028 these former Hounds returned. By using these smaller units and training for a year, the Second rapidly developed into an elite command. 3050 found the Second Kell Hounds assigned to garrison Ambergrist.[1]

The Second participated in the Battle of Luthien, helping to drive off the Clan forces. They also participated in Operation Bulldog, taking Yamarovka.

In 3067 they were based on Arc-Royal.[2]

As of 3050 to 3067 Lieutenant Colonel Scott Bradley is the commanding officer of the 2nd regiment.[1][3][2]
