--Kamea's battlecry in combat.
Kamea Arano was the leader of the Arano Restoration. She is described as "brave, idealistic, and determined. She was set to inherit the throne of the Aurigan Coalition after her father's unexpected death, but was betrayed and driven into exile where she watched as her people were subjected to a cruel dictatorship.
She fights to free her people from the brutal dictatorship led by the Espinosa family known as the Aurigan Directorate. She is known to have been a MechWarrior, utilizing the Arano family BattleMech, a KTO-18 Kintaro.
Running into a Coup
As Raju, the MechWarrior, and Kamea, were making their way to the Coronation, two Arano Royal Guard Mechs turned on her after being found out. As expected, she would be attacked by Directorate forces led by her cousin Victoria soon after. She would later escape to the DropShips thanks to the assistance of the MechWarrior and Raju. However, her DropShip would be attacked by Directorate aerospace fighters bringing down the DropShip containing both Lady Arano and Lord Alexander. With the destruction of the DropShip, Kamea was presumed dead by the Aurigan Reach.
As it turns out, both Kamea and Alexander did survive the DropShip's destruction and went in hiding for over three years. She would gather people to her realm calling her group the Arano Restoration. She would hire mercenaries and ally with the Magistracy of Canopus for financial support. Initially, she was gathering supporters on the planet to gain back her birthright, but Raju's death changed her motive to fight for the people who had suffered under her uncle's rule. While she would gather ruling house members and civilians to join her cause, Kamea used the mercenaries to handle important tasks and weaken the Directorate forces.
Retaking the Throne
With most of the Directorate in shambles, Lady Kamea offered both her uncle and her cousin the chance to stand down. While Santiago realized his mistakes and conceded, Victoria would refuse insisting that if she wanted to save her friend, Kamea would have to fight her to the death. With the death of Victoria, the Aurigan Directorate ceased to exist. Kamea would take the throne, bringing peace to the Reach at last. To show her gratitude to the mercenaries who aided her, she freed their debt, released their services to her, gave her Atlas II away, and as a bonus, Lady Arano would gift the crew with the Argo.
Birth year is a guess based on age in character profile given in Kickstarter update and assuming a timeline of 3025.
