Description[edit]

The House Liao aligned Tandrek Stables is known for its influence in the Cathay sector of Solaris City, with good connections to the underworld.[1][2] The Stable is based in Cathay.[3]

History[edit]

The Stable was formed in 3007.[3]

The original owner of Tandrek (Roger Tandrek) developed a vendetta against another Liao affiliated stable known as Zelazni Stables and his stable master Victor Zelazni. The vendetta brought the Stable on the edge of ruin, because the clashes with Zelazni was fought with no quarter in their duels.[1][2]

After Roger mysterious dead on 3058 his daughters Robynn assumed the control of the Stable and continued the vendetta against Zelazni blaming them for the death of his father.[1]

The feud grew to a new level during the 3062 Riots where those clashes nearly left both Stables bankrupt[4], and the MechWarriors started to complain about poor repairs and supply shortages. A dozen MechWarriors per side died during the riots, and the evidence points that Robynn is not satisfied yet, so the vendetta will continue.[1]

In 3070, the second year of the Word of Blake occupation of Solaris during the Jihad, surviving elements of the Zelazni and Tandrek Stables supported a riot by starving Cathay citizens that poured into Silesia in search of foodstuffs and other necessities. The Silesians responded in kind with the Starlight Stables facing off against the Zelazni and Tandrek 'Mechs, resulting in a bloodbath with over five thousand killed, triggering a wave of riots that put those of 3062 and 3065 to shame.[5]

After the Jihad, in 3071 the Stables fought against the Black Novas Cooperative in the Solaris Highway when 'Mechs from both sides continued their long-running night battle between Cathay and Silesia.[6]

Though heavily damaged, the Tandrek Stables were one of the Solaris stables to survive the Blakist occupation, though just barely. A review of the financial position of Solaris corporations and stables in 3072 secured by Hachiman Taro Electronics indicated Tandrek had suffered loses of 67%, with the stable only able to engage in limited competition at that time.[5]

Tandrek Stables was still operating as of 3136.[7]

Stablemaster and Owner[edit]
