History[edit]

Dark Age[edit]

The Third Taurian Pride was formed during the Dark Age by the Calderon Protectorate. During the mid-thirty-first century the Third were responsible for protecting the Carvajal system, a strategically significant system given that both trade and military aid from the Federated Suns and the Filtvelt Coalition flowed into the Protectorate through Carvajal.[1]

Being stationed on Carvajal meant facing a significant number of pirate raids - considerably more than the average for a Protectorate world. By 3145 the largest raid the Third had been forced to deal with had been a battalion-sized raid in 3140, staged by a pirate band who managed to sneak their combined-arms unit through the customs checks in place at the main jump points before staging an orbital drop onto the city of Lancaster.[1]

The Third engaged the pirates as quickly as they could, although they were unable to prevent the raiders from firing the planetary adminstration complex; the Third's commanding officer, Colonel Yulia Carlos, personally led the Third in a hot pursuit that took them across the planet and then into space. The Third finally caught up with and destroyed the pirates while they were travelling to a pirate point, and even managed to capture and secure a Merchant-class JumpShip that was waiting for the raiders at the pirate point.[1]

Officers[edit]

In 3145 the commanding officer of the third was Colonel Yulia Carlos.[2]
