Band of Five
|Band of Five|
Following the raising of the Wall in 3135 and Jacob Bannson's own disappearance, the Band of Five were isolated from the larger universe. Among the last anti-Republic holdouts within Fortress Republic to be put down, the Band of Five's members were pursued by the RAF across seven systems before finally being wiped out by Stone's Lament on Altair in February 3137.
|Commanding Officers of the Band of Five|
With little formal training the Band of Five's members instead fought like street thugs, utilizing any tactic, no matter how dishonorable, if it aided their mission. Their name, in fact, derived from their use of five-member units in order to gain an advantage over opponents organized along the near-universal four-unit structure.
