Dissimulate Wanderer, subtitled A MechWarrior 5 Origins Series Story, Installment 5, is an original BattleTech novella penned by Randall N. Bills. It was released in electronic format on 02 December 2019.
The MechWarrior 5 Origins series is offered as a free tie-in product supporting the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries computer game; the individual stories narrate the backgrounds of important characters from the game.
This novella is a promotional publication going with MechWarrior 5 and, like MechWarrior 5, derives from Piranha Games' license to BattleTech video games instead of the (distinct) "mainline" BattleTech license held by Catalyst Game Labs. As such it does not meet the criteria for canon in the "mainline" BattleTech universe and is therefore flagged as apocryphal.
