Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

For many years the Twelfth Scorpion Cuirassiers were a collection of warriors too dishonorable to serve in front-line service. Under the command of Allison Baba, that changed. The warriors of the Twelfth became experts in dueling. They would bid their forces to the bone and then use zellbrigen to turn the tide of defeat into victory. Persistent rumors said that the Twelfth had taken several members of the Dark Caste as bondsmen but no evidence existed to support this claim.[1]

The Cluster formed part of the Marshall garrison in 3061[2] and was still in position in 3067.[3]

In 3079 the Cluster was on Roche, from here it moved to Waypoint 531, before continuing to the Umayyad Caliphate early 3080. [4]
