Early Life
In 3006, Morgan, Katrina Steiner, and his cousin (future husband of Katrina) Arthur Luvon were attacked by LIC & Loki on Poulsbo. Then-Archon Alessandro Steiner had sent forces to assassinate Katrina due to her opposition to his Operation Concentrated Weakness. Members of the loyal opposition force, Heimdall, saved them and allowed them to flee to the Periphery. This was made famous as they took on the personae of the Red Corsair and her henchman. Acting as undisclosed pirates through the Periphery, they re-entered the Inner Sphere through House Marik's border. Leading to Katrina's return to Tharkad and helping her "retire" Alessandro. During this time Morgan met a woman named "Tempest", who is believed to be his first love.
 The Kell Hounds
The Kell Hounds were born even before Morgan and Patrick had thoughts of running their own mercenary command. Arthur Luvon, future husband of Lyran Archon Katrina Steiner and Morgan and Patrick's cousin, dubbed the two brothers the Kell Hounds after witnessing them as young boys running around and terrorizing a neighbor's flock of sheep. Arthur drew up the Kell Hounds' crest and predicted that the two would grow up to become great MechWarriors. When Arthur died, Morgan and Patrick used the money left to them to form the Kell Hounds mercenary unit, which they created in 3010. Though initially mocked as rich boys playing mercenary, the two made quite the impression with their surprisingly advanced grasp of strategy and tactics, as well as a top-notch technical support staff.
Rescued the body of Prince Ian Davion. Later, in a battle on Mallory's World, he saved his unit by using the Phantom 'Mech skill in single combat against the commander of the 2nd Sword of Light, Yorinaga Kurita in 3016.
After that incident, Morgan reduced the Kell Hounds to a single battalion and went to a MechWarrior monastery, the St. Marinus House on the planet Zaniah. Eleven years later, following the death of Patrick Kell at the hands of Yorinaga Kurita, he re-formed the Kell Hounds into a full regiment to defeat Kurita. He traveled to Tharkad at New Years Eve of 3027 to ask Archon Katrina Steiner to release the unit's contract so he could pursue Yorinaga. He is asked by Melissa Steiner to give her away in place of her father. As his unit reforms and trains he and Captain Daniel Allard travel to Terra for his cousin's wedding in August 3028. In the course of the events of the wedding, he briefly allies with Wolf's Dragoons commander Jaime Wolf and arch-enemy Yorinaga Kurita to rescue Yorinaga's son after he discovers hidden Star League era BattleMechs under ComStar's compound on Hilton Head Island.
During the Clan invasion he received word of the "loss" of his son Phelan to what was later discovered to be Wolf Clan on The Rock in 3049. Near end of the war he leads the Kell Hounds on Luthien alongside the Wolf's Dragoons against Clan Smoke Jaguar and Clan Nova Cat.
 Assasination and FedCom Civil War
On June 19th, 3055 Morgan was caught in an explosion which killed his cousin Archon Melissa Steiner and his wife, Salome. The explosion also tore his right arm off, requiring him to wear a bionic replacement prosthetic. He seldom wore the device, since he disliked it. He learned later that his cousin's daughter Katherine Steiner had arranged for the assassination of her mother to make way for her ascension as the new Archon. As he gathered evidence he also began to isolate his patrol region along the Lyran-Clan border, beginning what he later called the Arc-Royal Defense Cordon.
After the Refusal War between the Wolves and Falcons he created the Arc-Royal Defense Cordon on the border area with Clan Jade Falcon. During this time, the Cordon was technically part of the Lyran Commonwealth, but was, for all intents and purposes, under the authority of the Kell Hounds. His son, Phelan Kell, later relocated to Arc-Royal with the remaining Warden wolves as Clan Wolf-in-Exile. Notable units in the Cordon were the 4th Skye Rangers, 17th Skye Rangers, the entire Clan Wolf-in-Exile touman, The Blue Star Irregulars, the Dioscuri, and the Kell Hounds.
In 3059, Kell met with his cousin Victor Steiner-Davion, and secretly gave him the support of his forces should they ever be needed to retake his place as Archon-Prince of a reunited FedCom. While on Tharkad during the Whitting Conference, he had a private meeting with Katherine/Katrina Steiner-Davion and his son Phelen Kell. The meeting started friendly at first, where she tried to court him to her side. He soundly refused, stating boldly that he knew she ordered the murder of her mother, which led to his wife's death. In a fit of rage, she threatened his life, only to be threatened herself--as Phelan Kell began strangling her on the spot. Morgan calmly called off Phelan to spare her life, while Phelan warned her that his Wolves would come for revenge should anything happen to him or his father. This latter part was a ploy to deceive Katherine in the hopes that she would slip up and reveal any incriminating evidence she was hiding.
 Marriage and Children
He was married to Salome Ward who bore him a son, Phelan Kell, as well as a daughter, Caitlin Kell. He also had an illegitimate daughter, Megan Kell, who ended up marrying Dan Allard. He help raised his nephew Christian Kell, whom he met in 3042 at age 16.
 Character Notes
He carried a note written by Archon Katrina Steiner that gave him access to anything he needed. Written as:
|“||Deny this man, Morgan Kell, nothing. Katrina Steiner, 22 July, 3007||”|
During his time in Periphery, it was unclear if "Tempest" was in fact the mother of Morgan's illegitimate daughter, Megan Kell.
