Named for a genetically engineered Eden predator, Clan Jade Falcon has historically ranked among the most powerful and active Clans. Aggressive and tenacious, this Clan constantly strives to advance its own agenda without losing sight of Nicholas Kerensky’s teachings (as the Falcons interpret them). Staunch traditionalists, the Falcons were the driving force behind the development of the Crusader philosophy.
Clashing with their long-time rivals Clan Wolf in the years after the humiliating defeat at Tukayyid, Falcon manipulations in the Grand Council resulted in the Refusal War, which weakened the Falcons and nearly destroyed the Wolves. Under new Khan Marthe Pryde, the Falcons rebuilt and several times invaded the Lyran Alliance to demonstrate their strength to friend and foe alike. By the beginning of the Jihad, they had been quiet for a few years but soon enough felt the sting of Blakist attacks.
With Clan Ice Hellion invading shortly after the start of the Jihad, the Falcons had two foes to worry about. Though they made short work of the Hellions with the help of their allies Clan Hell’s Horses, the Falcons grudgingly allied with Devlin Stone’s Coalition to fight the Blakists. Several unfortunate clashes with other Coalition members have so far not diminished the Clan’s dedication to seeing the Word of Blake’s threat removed once and for all.
