Planetary History[edit]

Settlement[edit]

In 2840, members of Clan Mongoose arrived and established their own colony on the planet. Due to the high oxygen levels in the atmosphere, the Mongoose settlers were forced to build their cities in high altitude locations. However, natives are forced to wear respirators when out doors, though some of the Worker Caste have implanted devices to allow them to work in lower attitudes for mining purposes, however this practice has limited these individuals from leaving the planet.[6]

Fall of the Mongoose Enclaves[edit]

Clan Star Adder struck Clan Mongoose's enclave in 2844 in retaliation for crimes committed by its clan on Marshall. The Adder's Quasar Keshik hunted down every warrior of the Mongoose Cluster in revenge for their slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians on their Marshall colony. The Adder's saKhan Dembe N'Buta claimed the Mongoose colony's population in the name of his Clan and transported the former Mongoose civilian castes from the planet to repopulate the Adder's enclaves on Marshall.[7][8]

Battle for control of Tokasha Mechworks between the Bear & the Horse[edit]

In 2921, Clan Ghost Bear took control of a major part of Tokasha Mechworks from Clan Hell's Horses. Khan Kilbourne Jorgenson's death in the battle enraged the remaining Bear warriors, turning the tide. The surprised Horses retreated to save their valuable assets from being battered in a fight that was no longer just about the control of the contested BattleMech production facilities. This is the cause of the still existing feud between both Clans.[9]

Migration of the Bears and the Arrival of the Rival Clans[edit]

Later, the Ghost Bears moved their whole clan into the Inner Sphere occupation zone in 3060, also leaving their factories on Tokasha to the Clan Diamond Shark. The Sharks dispatched their Gamma Galaxy to take control of the former bear territories. However, shortly after the Bears long time neighbors on the planet began to shift positions to re-take the factory and its territories for themselves. Specifically the arrival of Hell's Horses whom were eager to reclaim their lost holdings.[10]

Military Deployment[edit]

Geography[edit]

Tokasha's most notable feature is the high levels of oxygen in its atmosphere. The planet has wide ranges of oceans and lush wilderness of forests and jungles. The native animal life is highly hostile to terrestrial based life.[1]

Planetary Locations[edit]

Notes[edit]

Although Tokasha is shown on the map of the Kerensky Cluster from Historical: Operation Klondike dated 2821, it has been confirmed by the BattleTech Line Developers that this is an error:

The map is actually in error, 2840 is the date I have on file for the colonization of Tokasha and in general we do not show planets on the map that aren't inhabited.
