History[edit]

Nova Cat Abjuration[edit]

In April 27th, 3060, Grand Council of the Clans voted to Abjuration or eject Clan Nova Cat from Clan space, with only a month's warning. Clan Jade Falcon's 53rd Battle Cluster attacked the Nova Cats' garrison forces without Trial. The Falcons had felt that the Cats were dezgra, and so did not deserve the honor of a trial. Nova Cat defenders instead of conducting a fighting withdrawal, went head-on against the 53rd's forces to prevent Falcons penetrating into the Nova Cats' major population centers. These Nova Cats attempted to buy time for their civilian castes to evacuate the planet, and paid with their lives. The 53rd Battle Cluster destroyed all Nova Cat forces to the last warrior, preventing the majority of the civilian caste from escaping the planet.[3]

Notes[edit]

All Light-year distances were measured with Historical: Operation Klondike map scale. These are proximate distances between worlds using the Pentagon and Kernesky Cluster Map scale.[10]. As of this writing, there is little information that gives detail description of Gatekeeper in current sourcebooks.
