Reginald von Kaas
Also known as "Von Kobra"
Born 2985
Affiliation Independent
Mercenary MechWarrior


Reginald von Kaas was born and bred on Terra, the only child of ComStar Demi-Precentors. He grew up schooled in all the traditions and when he was of age, he joined the local defense force.

After some formal training, he was assigned to supervise BattleMech restoration, where he fell in love with the machines. Using his family connections, he had himself reassigned as a 'Mech pilot. He then proceeded to show such dedication to the use and care of 'Mechs that he was quickly promoted to the top of his local defense cadre despite the lack of combat opportunities.

After that, there's a blank spot in his record, the sort typical of those who have engaged in covert operations. He dropped out of sight for over five years. His next official record is in the Periphery on the MRB register, using the callsign Von Kobra and with several impressive shooting certifications under his belt.

According to those records, at one time he led a small mercenary unit of his own, but that unit dissolved without any recorded contracts. He now considers himself a freelance operative, although his personal intensity suggests the "freelance" descriptor may be deceptive.


Reggie "Von Kobra" von Kaas is one of 62 MechWarriors designed by BattleTech (video game) Kickstarter backers of Mercenary Mechcommander and above. Featured only in the apocryphal computer game BattleTech video game, the character is considered apocryphal as well.[1]
