|Affiliation||Clan Cloud Cobra|
After spending several years within the Cloud Cobra's Epsilon Galaxy, Star Captain Beckett was selected to serve as the Cloud Cobra ambassador to Clan Blood Spirit after the warming of relations between both Clans and the arrival of his counter-part ilChi Carmen Zadok. While a staple of the bloodiest battles between the Blood Spirits and Star Adders on York, Beckett never fired a shot in anger in his Ebon Jaguar - the Adders recognized him a neutral observer and thus off-limits. While not directly contributing to the Spirit's defense of York on the battlefield, Beckett did offer frequently assistance in preparing defenses and devising counter-measures for the tactics of the Star Adder forces. 
Despite his aid, the Star Adders were regularly able to bypass or otherwise overcome the measures suggested by Beckett, leading some people to suspect that the Adders were somehow able to intercept the regular reports he made back to his own superiors. This may also explain why the Star Adders took great pains to avoid any possibility of even mistakenly firing upon Beckett in the heat of battle, to possibly avoid cutting off their source of information or otherwise damage relations with their so-called Snake Alliance partner. 
While he never fired a single shot in anger, during his time on York as ambassador to Clan Blood Spirit Vuspen Beckett piloted a Ebon Jaguar.
- The apocryphal Ebon Jaguar Hero 'Mechs in the video game MechWarrior Online, the Esprit de Corps, is piloted by a "Vesper Beckett" for Clan Cloud Cobra. Given that majority of other such Hero 'Mechs are piloted by Notable Pilots from various Technical Readouts, it appears likely Vesper is a misspelling of Vuspen and they are intended to be one and the same.
