{{Plagiarism}}As soon as With the creation of the first [[BattleMechsBattleMech]] began to dominate the battlefields of in the twenty-fifth century, the humans face of battle in the [[Inner Sphere]] changed. In the centuries that piloted followed these awesome machines began to gain a power and influence well-beyond other soldiers on the field. An entire social class soon formed around those who men and women that piloted these increasingly important war machinesthem came to be viewed as the modern incarnation of the Knight Errant. These so-called '''MechWarriors''', masters of the modern incarnation of knightsbattlefield were given honors, and some were given even raised to the nobility on the monumental task merit of defending their homelands accomplishments. Over time a social class of MechWarriors formed and their rulersa series of traditions became established. As with During the middle ages long years of Europe on ancient the [[TerraSuccession Wars]], these MechWarriors were made knights, given honors many warriors owned their BattleMechs and some even bestowed royal titles, conveying authority over entire worlds and more. This romantic image a tradition of passing the MechWarrior-knight has eroded somewhat over 'Mech and the past few decades, but it remains strong in responsibilities one generation to the hearts next generation within a family line started. These 'Mechs became a treasured resource of those lucky enough to have them and these vehicles were coveted and repaired again and again over the [[Inner Sphere]]'s peoplecenturys.
During This changed with the end of the [[Fourth Succession WarsWar]]. With the discovery, development and rapid addoption of many MechWarriors owned their new and old technologies, the ancient 'Mechs and passed them down through generationsthat had held the field for so many years became hopelessly outclassed by the new generation of BattleMechs leaving factory lines throughout the Inner Sphere. It was The average MechWarrior could not uncommon that a 'Mech might be centuries-old keep up with numerous repairs the House sponsored armies in keeping their systems and components up to date and replacementssoon fell hopelessly behind. That custom changed radically following With the conclusion coming of the [[Fourth Succession War]]Clans this became even more evident. The recovery of a [[Star League]] library core resulted change in culture has had grave consequences for the rediscovery private ownership of much [[LosTech]]; only the Great Houses could afford the massive amounts BattleMechs. Most of new construction that followed. Consequently, House militaries own most new 'Mechs in service in the newer Inner Sphere in produced 'Mechs ar owned by the post-Fourth Succession War period. Among various House Militaries, while amoungst the [[Clans]], all property belongs to is owned by the [[Clan ]] itself and so a Clansman Clan MechWarrior never owns his 'Mechown equipment. The day of a MechWarrior being viewed a a Knight Errant may be passing, but the legends and memories will linger on. Perhaps, when once again there is need, the people of the universe will once again turn to champions to protect them from the dangers without, perhaps the day of the MechWarrior as heroe of the people will return again.Only time will tell
