'''''Knives in the Dark''''', subtitled ''A MechWarrior 5 Origins Series Story, Installment 6'', is an original [[BattleTech]] [[novella]] penned by [[Randall N. Bills]]. It was released in electronic format on 05 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.

==Canonicity==
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.
