History[edit]

The Dark Age[edit]

By 3110 Gamma Galaxy had become the heaviest user of ProtoMechs in the Snow Raven touman, and was the first unit to receive deliveries of the new Hippogriff ProtoMech. The Third Raven Auxiliaries were the first sub-unit of Gamma Galaxy to test the Hippogriff in combat when they clashed with a reconnaissance force from the ManMangler mercenary unit on Milligan's World. A contingent from the ManManglers - who were apparently in the employ of the Draconis Combine - was intercepted by a Binary from the Auxiliaries. The Auxiliaries force consisted of a mixture of Chrysaor 2s, Hippogriffs and Rocs, and intercepted the mercenaries on the Doone Plains, where the Raven ProtoMechs quickly outjumped the mercenary APCs and light 'Mechs, who retreated after losing two 'Mechs and most of their infantry.[1]

Jumbled BattleROMs recovered from a destroyed Third Raven Auxillary Star, lost three jumps from Valasha, reportedly show an encounter with a jet black Marauder thought to be the Black Marauder, shrouded in both what appeared to be ECM and smoke. Effortlessly slaughtering two Raven Vipers and three Summoners, two of the Summoners immediately downed by simultaneous cockpit hits before he picked off the lighter 'Mechs and finally the commander. The unnamed Star Commander's Summoner was found by the Raven Alliance recovery team upright and armless, its cockpit empty yet sealed from the inside.[2]
