Myndo Waterly (Born January 1st, 3001[1] – Died June 6th, 3052[2], aged 51 years) was the Primus of ComStar who attempted to herald the organization's predominance in Inner Sphere politics with the unsuccessful Operation Scorpion.


Early life[edit]

Myndo Waterly was born into a humble family of plantation workers on the Green Tea Commune on the Draconis Combine world of Kuzuu. The young Myndo was a gifted student who attracted the attention of the ISF and O5P, who sponsored her education at the prestigious University of Dieron. Seemingly set for a life in the Combine intelligence services, Myndo witnessed the shooting death of a fellow student who she had a relationship with and who was apparently involved in a minor underground movement. Directly after being released from questioning by ISF officials, Myndo entered the ComStar compound on Dieron. The driven Waterly quickly and ruthlessly ascended the ranks of the Order, attracting controversy for the speed of her promotions and her radical and militant interpretation of the writings of Jerome Blake.[3]

Precenter of Dieron[edit]

As of 3025, Myndo Waterly was Precentor of the prestigious Dieron Hyperpulse Generator. [4] As Precentor Dieron, Waterly served as the head and advocate for all HPG stations within the Draconis Combine and held a seat on the First Circuit, the Blessed Order's decision making council.

In May 3027, Waterly intentionally leaked information to the Draconis Combine's Internal Security Force that Melissa Steiner, Archon-Designate of the Lyran Commonwealth, was stranded in Combine space in the Styx system. [5] Despite breaching the First Circuit's strict non-intervention policy, Waterly was exonerated in the excommunication trial held to decide her fate. [6]

Primus of ComStar[edit]

Upon returning to Terra with her "gift", Waterly accused Precentor ROM Nicholas Cassnew of gross negligence in the agreement with the Combine, despite the fact she had taken the lead role in negotiations, as a pretext to promote the renamed Anastasius Focht in his stead. Despite the lack of knowledge of his background or beliefs, the First Circuit approved Focht's appointment as Precentor ROM with minimal complaint, Waterly calling in political favors and offering concessions to opponents to ensure this. [7]

Waterly would come to question this decision when First Prince Hanse Davion launched Operation FLUSH, a mass purge of ROM elements in the Federated Commonwealth in 3034. Rather than the bloody counter-strike she assumed, Focht responded with a war of confusion, directing those agents left in FedCom space to force the MIIO to waste its resources investigating red herrings. Displeased with Focht's "soft-handed" response to Flush, Waterly proposed the Readjustment Act of 3035 which saw ROM and the Com Guards separated, naming the aggressive Charles Seneca as the new Precentor ROM and creating the position of Precentor Martial for Focht, placing him purely in direct command of the Com Guards. [8]

Operation SCORPION[edit]

Myndo doesn't trust in Focht's victory, and begun a plan to take the control of all the Inner Sphere and clan space, plan she named Operation Scorpion, as a joke from a history Focht had tell her, about the fact one can never trust a politician. The move of Myndo proved he was right.

See the Operation SCORPION page for more detailed information.

Death and legacy[edit]

Following the failure of Operation SCORPION, Waterly was reportedly challenged by Anastasius Focht for the right to continue in the role of Primus. She was shot in the back by Focht, and the ComStar Archives' written to explain it as a cerebral hemorrhage. The Word of Blake truthfully maintains, however, that Focht and Sharilar Mori, her successor, had her killed. [9]

When Myndo's body was to be cremated, it disappeared mysteriously. Focht feared it had been stoled as be used as a symbol of wordship by the Word of Blake or whoever stole it, However, no trace of the body or his stealer was never found. [10]

After his death, Myndo was veneered by the blakists as a martyr, and one of most radical factions of the groups, the Sixth of June movement, chose his name as the date of Myndo's death.
