History[edit]

The Third Skye Rangers were stationed on Skye in 2765. Originally they were supposed to be deployed to the Commonwealth/Draconis Combine border, but several messages from the Duke of Skye to the High Command resulted in the Third being deployed to Skye. However, at the same time, a senior general was assigned to a dead-end job in the brigade's finance office.[1]
