Biography[edit]

Jas Keller was a Clan Ghost Bear trueborn warrior that was taken as bondsman by Clan Wolf in 3043 after a Trial of Refusal. Made abtakha, he first served in Epsilon Galaxy, but was then transfered to Delta Galaxy in the Fourth Wolf Guards.[1]

He replaced the previous commander of the 328th Assault[2], who was lost to a Trial of Possession[2], and thanks to his organizational skills and leadership abilities that matched his prowess as a warrior, the 328th Assault went from being the weakest Cluster of the Galaxy to assert itself as one of the premiere Clusters of the Clan.[1]

He won the Kederk Bloodname prior to Operation Revival.[1]

In May 3050, his unit was assigned to conquest Verthandi. At the time the planet was defended by the Second Battalion of the 2nd Kell Hounds and the Third Battalion of the 2nd Drakøns, along with the 4th Verthandi Armored Infantry Brigade. It was decided that an attempt would be made to gather as much information about these mysterious invaders as possible, and so a number of recording devices were planted all across Prince William Island. When Star Colonel Athen Kederk of the 328th Assault made his batchall to the defenders, the Kell Hounds and the Drakøns requested that the small forested island be designated as the battlefield. The Star Colonel agreed, impressed by their ability to honor the batchall, and attacked with the 328th's Supernova Battle. Five hours of fierce fighting took place across the island, on Onegin Shore, the Divers Plain and at Aaron Woods, with both sides giving as good as they got. Eventually the Kell Hounds and Drakøns were forced to retreat, but not before a Star of Elementals broke through their defensive lines and destroyed most of their recording equipment. Defeated the Kell Hounds fled to the Federated Commonwealth while the Drakøns made their way to Rasalhague.[3]

He was wounded in the Battle of Tukayyid.[1]
