Unit Description
As of 3093 the Aura Wings are an understrength brigade formation known for their naval prowess currently rebuilding from a crushing defeat at the hands of Clan Snow Raven in the Land's End system and a subsequent civil war that caused them great upheaval.

Recently reborn from a faction of the Akki Tsubasa in 3090 from a low point in their volatile history, the Aura Wings currently consist of the 2nd Aura Wings constituting a 'Mech Regiment, an Armor Regiment, three infantry Regiments and the two Aeorospace Regiments that they are most known for.

The Aura Wings have served mostly in the employ of House Kurita and House Liao since their formation in 3076. They are now under the leadership of Saori Arai, a graduate of the University of Proserpina who never saw front-line duty with the DCMS. The daughter of a minor noble on Proserpina, she disgraced her family by resigning from the Proserpina University Cadre before deployment due to a dispute with her superiors and her father, whom had been intervening in her career to that point.

Arai quickly proved herself in the disastrous Land's End campaign of 3089 with the Akki Tsubasa mercenary command as a Lieutenant, and proved herself again during the unit's civil war on Galtor III. In this she was instrumental in the removal of Countess Petra Michalek and the repulse of Davion-loyalists and opportunists who attempted to seize the Galtor system while the ATMU was at it's weakest. When the dust had settled in the third quarter of 3090, Saori Arai was the Commanding Officer of the Aura Wings. She has since embarked on a campaign to deemphasize the command's Kuritan roots and prove that they are soldiers of fortune first and foremost.

Unit Description
The Black Wolf Rangers was formed on 1st Nov 3079 by the unification of a small group of dissatisfied Taurian Concordat soldiers Led by Captain James Black, and the remnants of a small ‘down-on-their-luck’ mercenary unit brought together by Lt Cheryl Wolfe. Cpt Black along with a few close members of his former unit, fed up with the political manoeuvring and Anti-Davion propaganda in the Taurian Concordat, set forth to create a mercenary command that they could control ‘who’ they fought for ‘when’ and ‘why’. While travelling to Terra the two groups led by Black and Wolfe agreed to form the BWR.

Organized into a uniquely named Latin/Wolf unit and rank structure, the Ranger’s became well known for their Pack-like tactics and strategies. Adept at hit and run tactics, ambushes and deep recon, the BWR has served all Inner Sphere Realms save the Draconis Combine. Awarded the planet of Cimeron by the Federated Suns, the BWR stands ready to repulse the dragon in the spin-ward section of the Draconis March.

Special training on Cimeron has begun at the New Academy of Military Studies near the Units mountain stronghold ‘The Fang’. Multiple venues of military arts can be studied but concentrates on the mech warrior, Armour and infantry lines. Aerospace fighter studies as well as specialized avenues such as artillery and engineer training is conducted as well.

The Black Wolf Rangers have grown to a full Division of combined arms force. Consisting of one Mercenary Regimental Combat Team of one regiment each of mech, Armour and Battle Armour, 5 Rapid Expeditionary Forces (REF's) Combined arms Regiments created for rapid deployments and self sustaining support. The Cimeron Defence Force that defends their home world, is a large contingent having a mech Regiment 3 armour regiments and 7 Infantry Regiments along with Two Aerospace wings and a convnentional Fighter wing.

Unit Description
Xavier Steele has been the commander of The Restless Souls Mercenary Unit since its inception in 3069. Although plagued by a shortage of 'MechWarriors, he has grown the unit into a full strenth Division with combined arms of tanks, infantry, VTOLs, Battle Armor, AeroSpace Fighters, BattleMechs as well as 'WarShips. The only unit to have its own JumpShip transportation. Some at the MRBC have suggested that he resign due to his getting along in years and allow new blood circulate through the ranks. This is unlikely to happen. Steele considers himself a mentor to all the Souls Colonels and Majors and so will stay on until he thinks one of his Senior Staff is ready to pick up the controls. "After that," as he always says, "I'll consider retirement."

Senior Lieutenant Brandi Rodriguez, the units former-Executive Officer, has turned around the moral of the unit from an all-time low to above average high. This has been attributed to her background, that having been a lowly grunt herself, and her unorthodox style of command. The XO position has hit some hard times. After Brandi redirected her efforts to Battalion Adjutant, Nariko Matsuhita was recalled, however; within four short months she was Court Marshaled. With the serious injury that was sustained by Brandi in combat she was no longer an option for the XO position. Nariko's replacement was Christian Levesque who within a month of becoming the Restless Souls Executive Officer accepted an alternate posting to a Davion Guard Unit. Then came one of the Soul's lieutenants, namely Alex McCray. Alex took the reins of the XO seat and seemed to grab on to it for the long haul. He impressed by the sheer hours he spent every day deep into paperwork or at the controls of his mech. He was the winning ticket, but Lady Luck had something else in store for the Restless Souls and Alex succumbed to a terrible disease that kept him away from his posting for a long time. Without an XO for a long time Steele had to replace Alex with the Chief Logistics Officer, Anakin, an 'adopted' Wolf clanner. Anakin became one of the first clanners to obtain a senior posting in a DMM unit. He 'rejuvenated' the unit with new training programs that were a reminder of the enemy that almost conquered the Inner Sphere years back. He was the XO for over eleven years, but opted out to join to rejoin a Clan unit. The newly promoted Field Marshall turned back to his old friend Alex McCray for yet another replacement.

Each Regiment of the Restless Souls excels in a particular art of warfare. Diablo Regiment, Foxtrot, can defend a piece of property like it was an entire Brigade all by itself, and is considered the Souls' defensive experts. The Assault Regiment, called Sledgehammer, does best on the attack, using its massive size and long range firepower to blast through enemy positions. The Recon Regiment, nicknamed Eagle Eye, is best at raiding and recon. The 'Hunter-Killer' Regiment, Heaven's Fist, is feared around the Inner Sphere for the notorius ability to root out and apprehend high profiled enemy units. The Strike Regiment, Manticore, has mastered the art of long range fire power from behind cover with the resources to bring well over 2,000 long range warheads in on a target in a single salvo. With the increased size to Brigade and then to Division the Regiments have grown in size and in numbers. Their AeroSpace Fighter Support now full Aero Regiments, Iron Falcon, can appear behind enemy lines at will and wreck havoc, even through the most heavily defended strong points. The Restless Souls Vehicle Regiment, commanded by Colonel Jason Fosdick.

The Restless Division consist of two BattleMech Regiments as well as an Infantry Regiment, a VTOL Regiment, a support Regiment, an AeroSpace Fighter Regiment, its DropShip Fleet, and JumpShip Armada, and four WarShips provide the Souls with the independence and staying power they need to stay viable.

With the acquisition of six Landholds, Landgrave of Baxter, Baron of Quentin, and the Duke of Broken Wheel, the Restless Souls now have several places to call home and places where they can leave their dependents and draw upon for new recruits, perform training, garner yearly revenue, and control three Military Hardware Depots across three Landholds. They have constructed the Regina Entrprise Orbital Factory and Shipyard around their primary Landhold, Quentin in the Federated Suns. And have repaired an place at the jumppoints of Quentin and Baxter fully armed Bastion class space stations protected by Caspar MK III System Defense Systems.

The Division as a whole is considered a leader when it comes to defense. The Restless Souls have an uncanny ability to use the terrain and resources around them to their best advantage. Enemies who think a field is empty find themselves shocked when Restless Souls 'Mechs suddenly spring up around them.
