The Clan Protectorate is a Free World League Province, consisting of the worlds of Oceana, Asellus Australis, Asellus Borealis, Angell II, Abadan, Avellaneda and the capital world of Marik. It was founded in 3138.
Originated as a new nation that was created by the idea of Lady Julietta after she recovered from her injuries due to an assassination attempt in 3137. The Oriente Protectorate had asked the Clans of Marik to help garrison nearby worlds while their forces dealt with the recent war with Andurien. This led Lady Julietta to find a better way for Clan people to contribute to helping the worlds without wasting resources. Teaching the Clans about what a protectorate-type state is, mutual parties agreed to form the new Clan Protectorate.
The Clan Protectorate comprises former Republic of the Sphere faction, the "Clan" Spirit Cats and Delta Aimag of Clan Sea Fox Spina Khanate. The new nation, is led by Clan Spirit Cat Star Colonel Rikkard Nova Cat & Clan Sea Fox ovKhan Petr Kalasa, and Lady Julietta as Political Advisor to the leadership.
In February 3139, the Oriente Protectorate invited the Clans to participate in Operation Homecoming. The Oriente had requested that Clan forces be placed under their control, which was unacceptable. However Lady Julietta pointed out that by coming on their own, they could participate in it and keep their honor intact. As well, the new League would be indebted to them for keeping their promise to aid them in taking Atreus.
Clan Sea Fox CargoShip Voidswimmer arrived on April 21st to help defend the coalition's jump point. The Voidswimmer's presence kept newly arrived Regulan Fiefs's space forces from bringing reinforcements to the defending ground forces on Atreus.
In July, Clan representatives, including Lady Julietta, arrived at Atreus. They traveled to the Parliament building of the Free World League to witness the swearing in of Captain-General Jessica Marik.
Clan Protectorate Military ForcesEdit
The Clan Protectorate military was organized along traditional Clan lines. Despite being part of the new Free Worlds League Military, the LCCC was hesitant to deploy them outside their Protectorate, mostly as they served as a deterrent for the Wolf Empire. The Protectorate military had already engaged the Wolves in combat several times by 3145.
The Clan Protectorate as of 3145 has fielded six Clusters consisting of a mixture of warriors from the Spirit Cats, Clan Sea Fox's Spina Khanate’s Delta Aimag, native Free Worlds League nationals and survivors/refugees from Clan Nova Cat.
