Laura McTighe
Affiliation Clan Coyote
Profession saKhan

Laura McTighe (b. 30?? - d. 3???) was saKhan of Clan Coyote as of 3085.[1]


Born into the McTighe aerospace pilot bloodhouse, Laura was elected as saKhan some time soon after the last of the Society-influenced Coyotes were purged by Clan Steel Viper on Tamaron in late 3074. Her mandate was to assist newly-elected Khan Leo Koga in rebuilding their broken Clan. As a naval commander she held command of the remaining Coyote WarShip fleet.[1][2]

Reclaiming Honor[edit]

Years after the Society's insurrection was ended by the Clans, small enclaves of the rogue scientists and their followers would still be discovered in remote areas of Clan space. Coyote warriors led the way in destroying any enclaves found, atoning in the eyes of other Clanners for their Clan's crucial role in the Society's rebellion.

In 3077, the Coyote Watch would also locate a Bandit Caste hideout on an unsettled world only one jump from the Pentagon Worlds, designated System 671-H. SaKhan McTighe led the remaining Coyote fleet in an assault on the system. Upon reaching the bandit base, the Coyotes spotted three Star League vessels at the nadir jump point, later found to be from an old Clan Mongoose naval cache. Each ship was linked to the other to form a rough space station. As the Coyote fleet approached the bandits opened fire, but none of the three ships was combat ready and the bandit attacks were ineffectual. The Coyote WarShips and Aerospace Fighters ripped through the bandit formation, while destroying any DropShip that tried to escape the battle. Extrapolating from the courses of these attempted escapes, saKhan McTighe would locate two more bandit JumpShips near the edge of the system and destroyed one while the other escaped into the unknown.[1]
