Update to Bravo Lance 2
Rokudan Aika Gunma (Elite 2/3). An orphan from Marlowe's Rift in the Galedon District, Gunma lost his family to a AFFS raid in 3024 (age 3). Taken into the Order he was noted for his martial skills and leadership. However, he had a temper and hated all things Davion. Gunma was sent to the Sun Tzu School of Combat and excelled in Mech combat. He received his first Mech, a Panther just in time to fight in the War of 3039. He was assigned to the 2nd Galedon Regulars. He survived the war and was promoted to Gunsho and was transferred to multiple units in his salvaged Warhammer (converted to the 6K model). While transferred he continued to work as an informant for the O5P without the knowledge of his DCMS superiors. At the beginning of the Clan War, he was a Tai-i in the 4th Pesht Regulars and one of the few survivors of combat against the Smoke Jaguars. While recuperating on Pesht, during which he spent hours in sims to gain important skills for a rematch against the Clans, he was removed f
rom the unit and placed in the new Sohei due to his Clan combat experience. He was assigned a Warhammer 7K for his new role as a Lance Commander.
Sandan Hyi-joo Wantanabe (Veteran 3/4): Born in 3019 on Kaesong in the Rasalhague District, Wantanabe was conflicted by the various cultures on her home world. He mother’s side was Jopal, her father was of Japanese descent and a police officer and there was a significant Rasalhague presence as well. In 3028, her mother’s family murdered her father and killed her mother and several guest visiting the family. She survived but was taken in by an O5P orphanage. Noting her quick wit and anger when pushed into tight situations, the order trained her in various martial arts (SOMEONE ADD THREE HERE! I’M AT A LOSS) to focus her anger. In 3034, during the Ronin Wars she started receiving Mechwarrior training. She was assigned a Whitworth and took part in several operations against Ronin to protect various O5P facilities. While the purpose of the mech was to use her LRM’s in support she often charged in to finish off opponents with her lasers. She captured an Archer 2K and viewed the mech as a natural upgrade. The Order then had her assigned her to the 27th Dieron Regulars. Due to her gender, mixed heritage, crime history and temper she never was promoted higher than Gunsho and was often demoted. However her good looks enabled her to gather plenty of information from officers, enlisted and local leaders. During the Clan War she was one of the few survivors of the Clan Ghost Bear attack. After rescue she was recalled to the Order and assigned an. Archer 5R
Nidan Leo Mertens (Elite 2/3) The rich scion of a joumu torishimariyaku of the Diplan Mechyards on Aix-la-Chapelle, Leo would not seem to be a typical recruit for the Order of Five Pillars. Raised from birth (3021) to take a place in the corporate hierarchy as the past seven generation of his family had, Leo rebelled at every opportunity. He would spend most of his days play simulator games in lower class slums to escape his father. In 3039 a DCMS recruiter noticed his high scores and asked his father permission to send him to the University of Proserpina. Hoping that a military experience would give him discipline and scare him back into business, his father agreed. The War of 3039 postponed his time at Proserpina and he was sent to Galedon to train there. After the war Mertens found he was an excellent light mech pilot and sniper. When not in his mech, he would travel the wilderness of whatever planet he was stationed on to practice his sniper skills. However in a mech Mertens preferred to use his Spider’s mobility to backstab larger more dangerous prey. Also at University he was inducted into the Order at the urging of his lover. He often served as an overwatch for her on missions. Graduating in 3043 Mertens was assigned with his lover to the 1st Proserpina Hussars as a Scout Lance Chu-i. His lover was killed on Port Arthur against the Smoke Jaguars. While on refit he was assigned an experimental Venom SDR 9K and used it to take down a Jaguar Masakari while on a raid. After this he was sent to rejoin the Order’s newest elite unit.
Shodan George Hayashi (Veteran 2/4) George is huge man, who rarely speaks. Born in 3031 on Dieron, George was the son of poor Eta laborers. George was noted for his size and strength as well as his single mindedness to solve problems. He often spent time at the local Order monastery and would quietly meditate at the shrine. The Abbess began to test George, mentally, emotionally and physically. Impressed with what she saw, she inducted George into the Order in 3045. While his size (He stands 2.12 meters tall and weighs 120kg) would imply that he would be best suited for infantry or marine service, as would his small arm scores and hand to hand skills, George was extremely accurate at long range shots in mech simulations. Known that the need for a well-rounded Order his Abbess had him enrolled in the Dieron Military Gymnasium. Graduating in 3050 George was assigned to the 3rd Benjamin Regulars and took part of their stand on Asgard. After withdrawl he was removed from duty with the DCMS and assigned a custom Crab 27 (2 ERLL, 1 ML, 1 tag, 1 SL, 14 DS, extra ton of armor.) While he pilots his mech, he still likes to spar with infantry and has an extensive collection of small arms.
Bravo lance tactics: Bravo lance will form with Gunma and Hiyashi in line with 90m between them. Wantanabe will be between them but 60-90 behind. Mertens holds a flank position depending on terrain and operate as a scout or flanker as needed. The lance prefers to mid range skirmish under the umbrella of Wantanabe’s LRM’s once the enemy closes they focus fire and create distractions for Mertens to jump and backstab. Often Wantanbe is inclined to close and then Hiyasha will fall back as a long range sniper.
