Wars of Reaving

In December 3071 the renamed 246th Wolf Strike Cluster and the 509th Wolf Solahma Battle, dropped on and around the Kerensky Blood Chapel in Strana Mechty. Led by Star Colonel Ramil Kerensky of the Clan Wolf Watch. He opened a challenge to all Clans to prove themselves worthy of the Kerensky Heritage by retaking the Chapel from his forces. This prompted several warriors to attack the Wolves; as the day wore on, the numbers involved grew until ilKhan Andrews announced that whichever Clan could take the Chapel back would be awarded the Kerensky Bloodname. Chaos ensued as the Clans all vied for the honor with ninety warriors assaulting the entrenched Wolves over three days. Wolf Elementals destroyed the Winson Blood Chapel and as Ramil Kerensky fell he detonated the Kerensky Blood Chapel. This action provided the cover for a Wolf Watch team to penetrate the main genetics repository and destroy the master genetic files of Jennifer Winson, Nicholas and Andery Kerensky. The 246th was destroyed in this action.[32]

Notes

  • This legacy is considered a General one, with warriors from its sibkos qualifying for all Clan combat styles.[67]
  • Kerensky Vision, described to Phelan Ward as the patience of the warrior and a quality most of the Clan Warriors lack.[68]
  • Most of the Bloodhouse Bloodnamed members bring unblooded aides to the Clan Councils, marking this is an endorsement of sorts for future Bloodname Nominations. The Kerenskys are supposed to hold themselves above the political infighting of the other Bloodhouses, a tradition that began with Nicholas Kerensky, but ended with Natasha Kerensky, who was the first Kerensky to bring an unblooded warrior to one of such meetings.[68]
  • Except for the Bloodname Founder, it is not possible to know from which of the two Kerensky Legacies the Clan Warriors belong to. The list of the Bloodnamed warriors from Andery Kerensky Bloodname is included here.
