Character History[edit]

Melissa Wen was captured in a Marian Hegemony raid on Lesnovo in 2993 and sold into slavery. She was assigned to the gladitorial games on Baccalieu, and rapidly improved her tactical skills.

She was the leader of The Ghosts of Spartacus and commander of the 'Mech force, The Thracians, a group of slaves from the Marian Hegemony who rebelled against their masters. Seizing equipment and supplies, they created a hidden base on Baccalieu where they stole property, freed other slaves, and ran several successful propaganda campaigns against the Hegemony. Limited in their support options, the unit was light on 'Mechs (fielding only a lance) but this was balanced out by the possession of two companies of armor, a battalion of conventional infantry, and a squadron of AeroSpace Fighters. More importantly, the Ghosts of Spartacus received technical support from Rim Commonality and Magistracy of Canopus sources. The Rim Commonality also sent a news team to cover the events surrounding the Spartan's activities, which brought the unit to the notice of many people in the Free Worlds League and beyond.[1]
