Second Dismal Disinherited
Affiliation Mercenary
Parent Command Dismal Disinherited


Formed in 2867 the 2nd was created as an assault force, and has always fielded the heaviest machines possible. During a massive battle on Dromini IV, the 2nd served as the cornerstone of all defensive operations. The fight took a heavy toll from it.[1]

Since the beginning of the 30th Century the unit worked for the FedSuns, mainly on the Liao border. In 3050 they were stationed on Cohay.[2]

Jihad and destruction[edit]

The 2nd were stationed on Tall Trees in 3067, but following the attack on Wolf's Dragoons on Outreach by rogue mercenaries linked to the Word of Blake, the 2nd moved to Outreach, arriving in November.[3]

During the assault on Mars, the Second dropped alongside Zeta Battalion, and their aerospace assets guarded the raiding forces.[4] Much of the Second was destroyed in orbit by Blakist WarShips.[5]

The captain Alfie Walker, company commander of the Second Dismal Disinherited, remained in Outreach, in a hospital.[6] He remained on planet during the earlier stages of the Jihad, leading a part of the Dragoon's resistance, before being evacuated with his people. He was the only confirmed survivor of his unit.[7]
