Character Description
Sterling McKenna (????-????) was the Khan of the Raven Alliance at the start of the Dark Age, and a bloodnamed aerospace pilot. She was initially introduced as the love interest of Harrison Davion, First Prince of the Federated Suns, looked down upon by some of the Davion nobility for having relations with Harrison while being Clan, but with no more suspicion that it was a relationship that both members were in for emotional attachment to one another, despite age disparity (Harrison was at least twice McKenna's senior). McKenna's actual reasons for the relationship however was unveiled as entirely political, as with Harrison's Davion's comatose state and eventual death, she moved to Harrison's son and new First Prince Caleb Davion, and began to have relations with him. This is apparently a move to cement the nations of the Federated Suns and Raven Alliance in an alliance based on the leader's mutual interests in one another (Although in reality it is entirely an investment on the Davions' parts, McKenna's use of relationships could be seen in the veins of The Clans where sex is another form of competition and dominance).
