Kindraa Payne
Unit Profile (as of 3059)
Nickname Strength of Will
Parent Formation Clan Fire Mandrill Touman

Kindraa Payne was one of the strongest kindraas in Clan Fire Mandrill.[1]


Kindraa Payne was composed entirely of MechWarriors. They were also strong adherents to the Warden political movement.[1] They frequently came into conflict with Kindraa Sainze. Kindraa Payne didn't use Elementals, using conventional infantry and vehicles instead. They also lacked AeroSpace Fighters, employing just enough to protect their WarShip.[2]

Though they only had two front line and one second line Clusters, the quality of their warriors was such that they could maintain a large amount of influence over their fellow Kindraa. In fact cadets undergoing a Trial of Position faced heavy and assault class 'Mechs. In addition, the Payne warriors often engaged in Trials of Possession for the best Bloodnames of other Clans. Though they weren't always successful, facing off against such high-quality warriors resulted in the Paynes gathering experience quickly.[3]

After the disastrous assaults of Kindraa Sainze against Kindraa Beyl-Grant, the Paynes formed an alliance with the Beyl-Grants, creating the first "ilKindraa", Kindraa Payne-Beyl-Grant.[4]


As of 3059 the commanding officer was Kindraa Leader Laurel Payne.[3]
