Admiral: Gerald Von Haust
Admiral Sword World Navy
Affiliation Sacnoth Dominate


A squadron of ten Windhorst Class Heavy Cruisers under of the command of Admiral Gerald Von Haust were involved in the incident that lead to the rebellion. The admiral fell in love the governor's daughter at a formal dance. He then killed a high ranking rival suitor in a duel. His squadron had been specializing in commerce raiding. Some felt he had devolved into a privateer of sorts. When his commanding officers refused to hand him over for trial and execution, that was enough of an excuse to unleash sword world war machines. His ship's troops had looted several small outposts and reflagged them. He divided the proceeds among his men, making him very popular and making his forces extremely loyal. He also recruited from among the defeated, offering to spare their lives in exchange for faithful service under his personal command. He stated they were all loyal sword world citizens with misguided leaders, it wasn't the soldier's fault.
