Syn's Hussars
Unit Profile (as of 3063)
Nickname Conservatory Command
Parent Formation Liao Cháng-Chéng



Created from graduates of the Liao Conservatory of Military Arts, and unofficially serves as a training cadre for that academy, on their homeworld, Wei.[1]

During the Capellan/St. Ives conflict, the Hussars were hard-pressed to remain combat effective. Between 3064 and 3067 they were unable to take any of the objectives they were assigned. Despite this they were able to inflict twice as many casualties as they sustained and captured a battalion's worth of equipment. This equipment included two squads of Purifier armor. The Strategos wasn't pleased with their performance, however, and sent a message to their commander encouraging his troops to perform better.[2] The unit was based on Styk in 3067.[3]


Stationed on Liao between 3073 and 3075, the Blakists inflicted severe losses on the Hussars. Three quarters of the Hussars were killed in the conflict. The rebuilding effort allowed foreign intelligence services to insert several agents. Posted to Shiba to rebuild, Syn's Hussars instead turned inward, remaining in their base camp.[4]

Dark Age[edit]

In 3085 the Hussars' new commander focused the unit's displeasure on the loss of Liao and the Conservatory to the Republic of the Sphere. This focus and the arrival of many new recruits started to pull the Hussars out of their deep depression and helped them interact with the universe again.[5] They were stationed on Bithinia in 3085[3] to protect the Bithinian Ballistics plant.


As of 3063 to 3067 the commanding officer was Sang-shao Syn Sum Orr.[1][6]

In 3085 the unit is commanded by Sang-shao Kail Crushniev.[3]
