History[edit]

Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

Many members of the Fourth Scorpion Cuirassiers are equipped with prosthetics to treat injuries they received in combat. These warriors are often shunned by other Scorpions, but have served well and with honor. They served as part of the Tokasha garrison force in 3061[1] and were still in position in 3067.[2]

As part of Tau Galaxy they saw limited fighting in the Wars of Reaving remaining a defensive formation. It is likely that the Cluster was still on Tokasha when Clan Stone Lion moved against the Scorpion holdings in 3079, before being recalled to Roche by the Khan. From here Tau Galaxy moved to Waypoint 531, before attacking Granada, the capital of the Umayyad Caliphate in January 3080. The world was captured within a week, but it saw the death of Galaxy Commander Evelyn Buhallin. [3]
