Formed in 3066, Zellbrigen Stables was formed by disgruntled Clan Jade Falcon warriors from a embassy based in the Cathay section of Solaris City. Several of these warriors challenged number of contenders to publicized duels. These warriors challenged the contenders to vent their frustrations of being stationed on Solaris VII. The Falcons disdain the glamorization of dueling, and wanted to prove their superiority over mere "showmen" like the warriors of Solaris. The victories in these matches reaped the stable fame and respect. However, the stable's members were not able to handle the glamorous lifestyle that comes with fighting on Solaris. On the brink of collapse after it first matches, a Diamond Shark bloodnamed warrior & former merchant casteman , Marcin Hammond, stepped in and took over the "management" of the stables.
Since taking over the administration side of Zellbrigen's operations, he stabilized its situation and allowed it to prosper. Warriors from various Clans have appeared in matches under the Zellbrigen Stables. By late 3067, unofficial rivalry had sprung up between the it and Huntsmen Stables.
