History[edit]

In 3067 the Fifty-third was stationed on Shadow.[1]

When Scorpion Khan Ariel Suvorov declared a Trial of Refusal against Garret Sainze's election as ilKhan in February 3071,[2] Sainze met Suvorov's forces on Shadow. In a three-day campaign four Clusters from his Kindraa battled a like number of Goliath Scorpions; by the end of the fighting Sainze had perished, along with most of his warriors.[3] The Clusters involved are not recorded but as a front line it is highly likely the Fifty-third was in this force and destroyed.

Officers[edit]

Between 3059 and 3067 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Taki Sainze.[4][1]
