Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

Chi Galaxy was a Clan Goliath Scorpion military formation that was formed in 3060s as a new home for its warriors that were practitioners of the Clan's Seeker tradition.

The Chi was formed by Loremaster Kyrie Ben-Shimon, who wanted to hone the skills of the restless Seekers and provide a focus for their otherwise disorganized nature. When the Galaxy was first formed it was allocated a large allotment of aerospace assets, including a Potemkin Class Troop Cruiser. It also received a number of newly produced Peregrine 4 BattleMechs from the Clan's newly acquired Abysmal Manufacturing Complex on Huntress. The Peregrine 4 became popular among the Seekers due to the 'Mech's strengths as a duelist.[1]

The Galaxy was also used as a testbed unit for new technologies including ProtoMechs, and Chi was one the few Galaxies in the Goliath Scorpion touman where ProtoMech pilots were treated as equals. The Triton heavy ProtoMech was among the new batch of these machines assigned to Chi prior to 3068.[2]

Warriors from the Galaxy had been known to go on individual quests for lost SLDF artifacts.[3]

Conflict on Circe[edit]

During the early years of the Jihad, the components of Chi Galaxy engaged with the Snow Ravens garrison forces on Circe. This was an attempt to seize a sizable part of the Snow Raven holdings on planet, while the bulk of the Raven fleet engaged in business in the Inner Sphere. The Galaxy's forces engaged with the Second Raven Garrison Cluster. In notable event in the struggle, Elements of the Scorpion battle armor force engaged the Ravens' Chrysaor ProtoMechs. The Elementals nearly found themselves outmatched by the Raven ProtoMechs' speed, and were forced to withdraw. BattleMechs from the Third Scorpions Seekers arrived in time to decimate the Ravens' ProtoMech force.[4]

In 3079 the Seeker Clusters from Chi were employed in searching for avenues of retreat or safe havens for their threatened Clan.[5]

Dark Age Era[edit]

Chi Galaxy underwent a major change after the formation of the Escorpión Imperio. The Seeker (Clan Goliath Scorpion)s mainly ended on Chi, so, inspired by Khan Connor Rood's renaming of Beta Galaxy as Hellion Galaxy (Escorpión Imperio), and his creation of the Hellion Keshik, a command and bodyguard unit for the SaKhan, his successor, Khan Enrico Kiron, aka as the Seeker Khan, as a Seeker, renamed Chi Galaxy as the Seeker Galaxy and created the Seeker Keshik to protect the unit's commander.[6][7]

Some groups of Seekers began searching Star League relics into the Hanseatic League, and in 3139, the slaughter of one of these groups by the Hansa on Bergen-Probably members from Seeker Galaxy-became the casus belly for the Imperio's declaration of war: the Hanseatic Crusade had began. In the conflict, Seeker played a important part: they were tasked to conquer the planet Lübeck in Wave 3 of the invasion, taking the planet easily. A Trinary of Seeker, meanwhile, was sent to the planet Braunschweig, to take a key facility. As the Scorpions' Omega Galaxy was devastated in the fight, the intact Seeker Trinary became the main garrison force on planet. Meanwhile, the rest of Seeker faced the fury of the Hansa's counterattack, on Lübeck. This, led by Captain-Marshal Rudolf Schmidt, quickly shattered the Fourth Scorpion Seekers Cluster with sheer numbers, and Seeker soon was retreating on all fronts. After the death of Loremaster Kalara Yeh, Star Colonel Qelli Kirov took command of the Galaxy and ordered them to retreat offplanet, in the first victory of the Hansa at the conflict.[8]

Seeker, commanded by Kirov, easily conquered the planet Kalmar. Overzealously cautious, Kirov was so prudent than it delayed the planet's conquest, though also ensured minimal damage to its population and infrastructure. Later, Seeker was one of the Galaxies which took part of the Scorpions' Wave 5, targeting the Hansa's capital system, Bremen. n space, their DropShips were boarded, with their cargo suffering some damage, but anyway they landed along Alpha Galaxy. They saw heavy fighting, but emerged from the Crusade better than other Galaxies.[9]
