Anupan Shah (b. ???? - d. ????) was a Colonel in the Free Worlds League Military and commanding officer of the Third Regulan Hussars during the Reunification War. The Third Regulan Hussars fought as a part of the First Marik Auxiliary Corps in the war between the Star League and the Magistracy of Canopus, and like his unit, Shah was determined to prove Regulan might.
The rivalry between the Third Regulan Hussars and the other non-Regulan Free Worlds League Military units serving in the Auxiliary Corps came to a head after the campaign for Candiear in 2585, when Shah provoked a bitter war of words with the Commander of the Second Oriente Hussars, Colonel Westy McDowell. Ostensibly an argument about the respective performance of their two commands during the campaign, the real reason for the argument was the simmering resentment Shah and his unit felt over the perceived slight they had received for not being selected by Captain-General Marion Marik for the assault on Canopus IV in 2585. To smooth Shah's ruffled feathers, Marik selected the Third to be one of two FWLM regiments taking part in the final assault on Kossandra's Memory in 2588, the final battle of the war.
