Infamous mercenary, Vittorio Indigo, has been sighted on Izya along
with their custom AWV The Fafnir. Publicly disavowed by the
governing bodies of all five factions, their current employers are
rumored to be a dangerous fringe sect of the Cult of Earth Lost,
for purposes almost assuredly to do with their ongoing feud with
the Cult of Earth Found. All this is of little matter to Lady
Elreth, who wishes to test the might of Starfall against Indigo’s
Fafnir, but she requires help ferreting out this opponent from
where their handlers are hiding them.
Employer: Lady Elreth (tier
III-S Oligarchy) represented by Lady Elreth. She is called the
“Goddess of War and Death." She wanders the battlefields in her absurdly
dangerous mech Starfall wiping out entire fire teams
herself. GOAL: To fight worthy opponents. Lady Elreth’s
appearance and disposition is entirely subject to the take the GM
has on her, depending on the tone of the campaign she could be
anywhere from a bloodthirsty berserker to a noble duelist. It is
entirely possible and probable that she has a liaison within the
Council to handle the diplomatic end of her continued
Target: The Cult of Earth Lost
(tier II-W Theocracy). A splinter sect of the Cult has employed
Vittorio to perform a full assault on a suspected vault of
‘Heretical Texts’ (read: documents that support the planet being
Earth) being kept by the Cult of Earth Found in order to ensure
they do not sway more minds to their position. They are currently
keeping him in a secured outpost close to the Norrish Border
following a close call with Elreth. They’re preparing to smuggle
him further into Myriad territory for his mission while using
spotters to keep an eye on Elreth’s movements.
Objective: Force Indigo into a
confrontation with Lady Elreth.

willing to field equivalent units due to the bad PR.
