Planet DescriptionEdit

One of the first worlds colonized after the landing on Strana Mechty, Hector is a frigid world. It is home to the Ice Hellion, a cunning pack predator of the world’s snowy mountains, which preyed on the first Clan explorers. The flightless Ice Hellion birds found on the planet were admired for its lithe shape and blindingly white fur, prompting Nicholas Kerensky to use it as a totem animal.

Controlled solely by Clan Ice Hellion, Hector is the Clan Ice Hellion’s capital world.

Planetary HistoryEdit

In 3066 the Ice Hellions fought a Trial against Clan Diamond Shark on Hector that won them the right to produce the Piranha BattleMech.[4]
