Hoyt, Rard STAR COLONEL, FIRST FALCON STRIKER CLUSTER
Preferred BattleMech: Summoner
Among Clan warriors who prize physical prowess, Rard is an enigma. Pale and drawn, this gaunt commander had to prove himself as a warrior before he would be given a chance to become the exceptional leader that he was destined to be. Slow and weak, he had to rely on his cunning to defeat the powerful opponents who tried to stand in his way. Out of necessity and sheer determination, Rard became a master of several unarmed fighting styles and trained himself to be more than a match for anyone who has dared oppose his rise to the coveted position he now holds. His command is controversial nonetheless as there are those who claim that his physical inferiority makes him ineligible to hold a Bloodname as his genetic code is undesirable.
