Benjamin Spade was always pushing the limits. When the Clans invaded, he was very vocal in the upper ranks of the Free World’s League 1st Legionnaires about taking the fight to them. Outvoted and outranked, Spade maneuvered around the bureaucracy.
He exercised his “retirement” clause in his military contract, and mustered out with a tidy sum of C-Bills. He immediately formed “Spade’s Aces”, a light to medium Battlemech company specializing in covert operations and unconventional warfare. Early successes against the clans brought prosperity to the Aces, and by the time the smoke had cleared on Tukayyid, the Aces were two companies strong.
Spade’s next move would be to begin recruiting for a third company, the Green Aces. It was led by Boris, a Ghost Bear warrior who lost to Spade in a one on one duel. The bondsmen would be the new company’s commander. Spade wanted them trained in Clan tactics and covert operations. It was an experiment that not everyone in the organization found popular.
Major Spade’s knack for seeing potential brought together 8 recruits out of the roughest of life’s situations in the Inner Sphere. The Green Aces would either be a brilliant coup, or a spectacular waste of resources.
