Planetary History[edit]

During the brief detente between the Word of Blake and the Marian Hegemony in the reign of Julius O'Reilly the Word had initiated a programme to upgrade the Marian Arms Incorporated facility on Horatius, a programme that remained unfinished after Caesar Julius turned on the Blakists. The expanded facilities would remain incomplete and dormant until the aftermath of the Jihad, when a former employee of one of the companies on Irian, Doctor Dafyyd Rou, arrived in the Marian Hegemony, fleeing both the Blakists and his former employers. The new Caesar, Cassius O'Reilly, provided Dr. Rou with staggering amounts of funding and the best technicians in the Hegemony, along with instructions to complete the battle armor facility on Horatius and produce a new form of battle armor for both the Hegemony and for sale across the Inner Sphere. Dr. Rou was ultimately successful, allowing the Hegemony to debut the Ravager battlesuit in 3084, and by 3085 the Ravager had become the suit most in demand on the open markets of the Inner Sphere. The development work had threatened to bankrupt the Hegemony, but instead resulted in profits pouring back into the Marian Arms facility and Marian research and development.[25]
