History[edit]

Around 3059 the Cluster was involved in a fierce defensive engagement which resulted in Galaxy Commander Curtis being severely injured. Curtis refused to surrender command, and the Cluster was split into two camps: those who supported Curtis, and those who supported Star Captain Carmen, commanding officer of Beta Trinary.[1] The Third was stationed on the clan world of Atreus in 3067.[2]

The Cluster along with the rest of the Galaxy moved to the Inner Sphere in 3070, they formed the Hellion secondary force under saKhan Conner Rood. They were tasked with securing the Periphery border in 3071. This force captured Anywhere, Somerset, Erewhon, Bone Norman, and Lackhove.[3] In September 3071 they attacked Wotan and in October captured Gotterdammerung and Here. The Third were on Gotterdammerung in December 3071 when the Hell's Horse assaulted the planet, after taking heavy casualties they managed to retreat.[4]

Mercenaries[edit]

During the retreat from the Inner Sphere in 3072 the Hellions were ambushed by Clan Burrock's Zeta Galaxy resulting in the loss of three of their five JumpShips.[5] One of the JumpShips was the Permafrost, a Tramp-class vessel carrying a Trinary of warriors and their equipment from the Third Hector Cavaliers. In 3075 the Clan Goliath Scorpion Watch reported sighting of this missing unit operating as a mercenary force near San Mateo and still using their original equipment and insignia.[6]


Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Curtis.[1]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Philippe Lienet.[2]

Because of ageing equipment, the Cavaliers engage in hit-and-run attacks.[1]
