The Draconis Combine attacked Mallory's World with the Second Sword of Light and The Twenty-Fourth Dieron Regulars. The Federated Suns had the Seventeenth Avalon Hussars defending the planet. Prince Ian Davion responded to the invasion by deploying his own unit the Fourth Davion Guards. The Federated Suns had some success but soon the Seventeenth Avalon Hussars were in dire starits leaving the Davion Guards vulnerable. The Kell Hounds mercenary  regiment were summoned by Prince Ian Davion.
The Kell Hounds arrived too late to save the life of Prince Ian Davion, who died fighting a valiant rearguard action. The Kell Hounds were in position to prevent follow-up Kurita forces from carrying off the body of the dead prince.
