Cyclops Lore and Blueprint, by Randall Bills, is a short story published for MechWarrior Online.

Plot summary[edit]

The short story narrates part of an engagement between the Eridani Light Horse and the 4th Proserpina Hussars, on Fellanin II during the War of 3039, from the perspective of Major Ariana Winston in her personal BattleMech Sleipnir.


Although MechWarrior Online as such does not fall under the current criteria for Canon, the fiction going with the games' "Hero 'Mechs"—written largely by Randall Bills who at the time was also the incumbent BattleTech Line Developer at Catalyst Game Labs—was expressly declared fully canonical. At the same time, the Hero 'Mechs themselves and the configurations offered by MechWarrior Online were still not considered canon beyond what was expressly put down in the fiction pieces.
