History[edit]

The Thirty-first Auxiliary Cluster was a second line cluster of Kindraa Beyl-Grant, and was stationed on Foster in 3059.[1]

In 3066 Kindraa Beyl-Grant challenged for the position of saKhan within the Clan in an attempt to bring more Warden causes before the Clan Council. Kindraa Sainze, holder of the office, was infuriated and struck at the Beyl-Grant with three Clusters. The fighting was fierce and Beyl-Grant stood a good chance of being annihilated but Kindraa Payne and Kindraa Faraday-Tanaga intervened and forced the Sainze warriors to withdraw. The Thirty-first survived this conflict and became part of the new Kindraa Payne-Beyl-Grant.[2]

In December 3071 the Fire Mandrills declared Trials of Reaving against the Snuka and Vong Bloodnames. Supported by the CFM Anathema the Mandrills dropped the remainder of Kindraa Payne-Beyl-Grant’s touman on to the planet of Arcadia including the Thirty-first, where they were destroyed by the Fourth Bear Regulars and saKhan Aletha Kabrinski’s Silverroot Keshik.[3]

Officers[edit]

Between 3059 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Esther Lynn.[4][5]

Tactics[edit]

The cluster had no specialist tactics.
