Planetary History[edit]

Controlled solely by Clan Ice Hellion, Hector is the Clan Ice Hellion’s capital world.

In 3066 the Ice Hellions fought a Trial against Clan Diamond Shark on Hector that won them the right to produce the Piranha BattleMech.[7] During the last stages of the Wars of Reaving, after the failure of Operation ICE STORM, the severely weakened Hellions were forced to retreat all their remaining assets to Hector, until their Absorption by Clan Goliath Scorpion.[8]

Military Deployment[edit]



One of the first worlds colonized after the landing on Strana Mechty, Hector is a frigid world. It is home to the Ice Hellion, a cunning pack predator of the world’s snowy mountains, which preyed on the first Clan explorers. The flightless Ice Hellion birds found on the planet were admired for its lithe shape and blindingly white fur, prompting Nicholas Kerensky to use it as a totem animal.
