Xera Wolf is a thirty-second century trueborn pilot of Clan Wolf's Ch'in blood house. She is a member of the Steel Wolves faction.

Character History[edit]

As a Star Commander, she took part in the Steel Wolves' 3133 expedition to Achernar, flying air superiority missions against militia fighters as providing air support to ground forces.

After the death of her commanding Officer, Laren Mehta, she won an unaugmented Trial of Position for the rank of Star Captain. Xera later attained the rank of Star Colonel, and command of the Aerospace assets of the Steel Wolves.

Along with the majority of the Steel Wolves, Xera left Galatea when Anastasia Kerensky tried to turn them into mercenaries.

Xera subsequently joined Galaxy Commander Varnoff Fetladral's command.

In course of their campaigns she had to deal with Fetladral's dishonorable ways. After uncovering ample evidence of Fetladral's intention of not honoring the outcome of his trial against Kerensky, Xera ousted him from the Steel Wolves, becoming Galaxy Commander and commander of the remnants of the Steel Wolves.

Notable Actions[edit]

Invasion of Achernar[edit]

During the invasion of Achernar, Xera was under the command of another trueborn pilot who was killed in action during the open hostilities. With the death of her commanding officer, she believed that she was the rightful heir to become commander of the fighter wing, unfortunately for her, another pilot named Drake believed that he was to become the new CO. In a one sided Trial of Position, Xera was able to overcome her opponent and became the new commanding officer of the invasion force's fighters.[1]

For the rest of the invasion, Xera and her fighters were able to keep air dominance for the Steel Wolves. Once the order to return to the DropShips was given, she and the remaining pilots boarded the ships and left Achernar.

Notes[edit]

Early in her career as Star Commander and Star Captain during the Achernar campaign she was known to fly an Visigoth.

As Star Colonel and later Galaxy Commander, she commanded a Titan Class Aerospace Carrier, the Roofvogel and used it as her Cluster flagship. In personal combat she piloted a Scytha OmniFighter.
