[edit] History

[edit] Formation

In 3064, Lady Death Paula Trevaline broke free of the FedCom prison in which she had been incarcerated for the previous 22 years. She went to the world of Verdigreis, where she put out word that she was free and she was looking to recruit able-bodied pirates for her band. Thousands responded, but only a few were selected by Trevaline. Only the most elite and skilled would do for her new pirate band. At Verdigreis, she acquired an Invader Class JumpShip and a DropShip prior to departing for a re-supply raid.

Her band's first victim was Althea's Choice, where she gained control of a second DropShip among the supplies she needed. During the raid, she encountered a renegade Clan Smoke Jaguar MechWarrior named Jaxon, who was aboard the DropShip she was pirating. After verbal exchanges, he challenged her to a duel during which he lost his eye to her bullwhip. He conceded and joined her Consorts.[1]

[edit] Pirate's Haven Star Cluster

The Consorts arrived in Haven Star Cluster, where they transition through the rigorous unstable orbits or the rocks of the system to only inhabitable planet in the system. There Consorts lands their forces on planet and Lady Death challenges its ruler, Bloody James Kaiten for rulership of the planet. After quickly dispatching him, she and the band take over the star Star System.

[edit] The Jihad

During the Jihad, the Death's Consorts were one of a number of pirate bands to operate under Letters of Marque issued by the short-lived Malagrotta Cooperative. After several months of acting as privateers, a violent "change in management" on 22 October, 3075 saw one of the Consorts' officers, Gary Tiqualme emerge as the new leader of the pirate band. Tiqualme and the Consorts turned on the Cooperative, with Tiqualme declaring himself the Cooperative's new ruler, and by the 25th of October Tiqualme had completed his coup on Malagrotta. However, that same day the Remagen Crucis March Militia destroyed a base on June suspected of being an operating base for the Consorts.[2][3]

Direct conflict between the Malagrotta Cooperative and the Federated Suns began on the 7th of March 3076, when the Remagen CrMM attacked the Cooperative world of Gronholt, shattering the defenders - defenders who included elements of the Consorts. The few surviving pirates retreated to Great Gorge, leaving Gronholt in the hands of the Federated Suns.[4][5]
