Simpson's Samurai

Simpson's Samurai [1]
Formed 2775
Disbanded 2830 [2]
Affiliation Mercenary
Parent Command


Formed from elements of the 225th Mechanized Infantry Division after the Exodus, which split into two independent Mercenary Commands in 2775, Simpson's Samurai and the Red Eagles.[1]

During their time under the employ of House Davion, they were repulsed by the Ariana Grenadiers in a rare armor-versus-armor battle on Genoa in 2778. [3]

Simpson's Samurai was badly mauled by the 11th Liao Lancers while defending Bahl's Retreat. The Samurai were a battle-hardened unit at that time but where nevertheless shattered to one single company of survivors, and that thanks most to their enemies inexperience than any other thing.[4]

In 2830, the remaining elements of Belinda's Irregulars and Simpson's Samurai joined together to form the Bloody Suns.[2]
