Description[edit]

The Wraiths Stables is a Solaris VII 'Mech fighting stable based in the city of Rowe, just outside of Solaris City in the Reaches area. They are principally a House Liao affiliated stable with minor influences of House Kurita.

History[edit]

The Wraiths were founded in 3053 by wealthy Capellan Joshua Ling. When the stable was formed, generated excitement in the Reaches when it had number victories with its formation. However, the stable came under scrutiny when a report from Solaris Spectator fabricated a story of rigged matches, from urging Silver Dragon Stables.

Publicly, the rumors of dispute accrued between the two stables, which resulted in defection of several members of the Silver Dragons joining the Stable. The Stable has never public commented on what had transpired.

On 3055, the Wraiths were fighting matches in a number of arenas in the Reaches though they favored The Scrapyard and the Hartford Gardens.[1]

The Stable has been known for shortage of 'Mechs for its MechWarriors.

In 3071, the final year of the Word of Blake occupation of Solaris during the Jihad, the Wraiths had joined forced with other stables in the Solaris Home Defense League to eject the Blakist forces off-world. However tensions between the stables remained even with their common foe, most notably in June when Ulter Pentrovsky (then ranked 18th in the Top Twenty) and seven other members of the Wraiths ambushed and killed a lance of top-rated warriors from Overlord Stables in Cathay. The ambush would trigger a series of short and brutal battles between Lyran and Capellan leaning stables, ultimately culminating in the destruction of the Wraiths.[2]

However, a review of the financial position of Solaris corporations and stable in 3072 secured by Hachiman Taro Electronics indicated the Wraiths had suffered only loses of 37%, though its actual status was unknown.[3]
