|Previous Designation(s)||Chloe's Cavaliers|
De Berry Massacre
Niks's Cavaliers were one of many independent mercenary commands under long term contract with Interstellar Expeditions. Upon hearing rumors of the LosTech equipped-Corsair FrankenMech piloted by Oberon Confederation MechWarrior Jake Kalmar, IE contracted the Cavaliers to hunt down the pirate leader and discover the truth.
Following a long march of JumpShip passage into the Periphery, the Cavaliers began hunting down Kalmar's band and his 95-ton Ravager. After many months of tracking and several bloody skirmishes, the Cavaliers finally pushed him back and confronted Kalmar in his home port on the frozen moon of Sigurd on 11 November 3037. There in a brutal confrontation and aided by their own LosTech equipped BattleMechs, Chloe's Cavaliers were eventually able to defeat and kill Kalmar and lay claim to his Ravager. Despite this, the Cavaliers were never able to undercover the mystery of the Ravager's origins or how Kalmar was able to avoid Hendrik Grimm III laying claim to his 'Mech, the only clue being an unknown planet named Jibbet.

Video games and their storylines do not fall under the current definition of Canon and default to apocryphal, but it has been also said that information from certain sources such as these one can be assumed to be part of the shared universe if it makes sense, until contradicted.
Complicating the issue in this case is that the background stories for MWO Hero 'Mechs was declared fully canonical, which would extend to Chloe's Cavaliers as they are mentioned in the Ravager (Corsair Hero 'Mech) background story; however there is the official caveat that original 'Mechs designs created by PGI and/or HBS are not automatically canonized through Hero 'Mechs, which leaves the canon status of Chloe's Cavaliers up in the air as they were only mentioned in the background story for one such original design.
Since the unit is thus not clearly canonical, it was flagged as apocryphal for the time being.
