The roots as a cooperate force where no obstacle for a life as mercernary. The highlanders raided Jade Falcon planets during the last internal conflict of the former Federated Commonwealth. The unit earned the respect of the Falcon with the capture of supply caches on Twycross during an assault. The goal for the raids became clear as the unit handed their salvage to their parent organization over. It was enough equipment left for a base for rebuilt and the unit have a huge part of clan technology.

In the mid-3050's the unit was assigned to bandit-hunting duties. They were apparently successful, as several pirate bands based on The Rack issued a bounty for one of the Highlander's MechWarriors.[1]

In 3068 the Highlanders denied a call to rescue the beleaguered Blue Star Irregulars on Black Earth, who were under assault from the Jade Falcons. Since this time the unit make a new contract with Inarcs and will defend the planet against all threats.

In 3079 the Highlanders were stationed on Inarcs. The Jihad had been relatively kind to the Highlanders, as they were only five percent under their nominal strength.[2]

In 3083 the Blackstone Highlanders defended Duchess LaRue of the Inarcs Archonette publicly flouted orders and refused to return control of the Archonette to Tharkad. The 1st Royal Guards and 2nd Bolan Guards arrived on four Monolith JumpShips, escorted by the LAS Yggdrasil, and announced that the Duchess was under arrest.[3] The Blackstone Highlanders occupied their defensive positions and fought the First Royal Guards. The Royal Guards made quick work of the Highlanders, and the Highlanders surrendered after they realized they couldn't succeed or escape.[4] The Highlanders were disbanded by the LCAF, and as of 3085 the Blackstone family hasn't rebuilt the unit.[5]
