Command and Control Group "Ran'eoran" (Spirits of Courage)Sentinel
D'Rhen'El'Vior'los (Twin Hammer of Vior'los)
Apart from standard military rankings, the cadre curiously uses different names befitting their past and largely "independent" status among the Enclaves. Sentinel, denoting one equal to a 'EL in Tau, indicates a team leader. While deployed on their own, this commander has total control over those below him. When rejoined with the Cadre, they serve as field commanders, answering only to those in true command of the theater of war.
Sentinel D'Rhen carries a highly modified XV-8, designated XV8-CQB by the attached Fio, as do his two squad mates. This suit boasts additional targeting apparatus, spare chem bays and a mated thruster, linked to another 4 micro thrusters. Up-armored in several sections, the suit displays fantastic maneuverability in close quarters and incredible verticality, but suffers from lowered overall speed. D'Rhen also boasts a unique piece of wargear I do not truly understand, despite his numerous displays and slow, descriptive explanations. Resembling a shield generator and several segmented sections, when activated it burns as bright as the sun. Quite capable of completely rendering even gue'la adamantium into slag with minimul effort, the weapon can also fire its energy over a short distance.
D'Rhen acquired his name through his constant use of twin plasma rifles, regardless the target. His skill and ferocity with these weapons can be attested to, as his ability to decipher enemy weaknesses and structural vulnerabilities allows him to target any foe. Over time this became a rather noted feature, and his commander deemed him "D'Rhen".
" Yon'Idegi (Loyal Patience)
As Warden, a rank equal to Shas'Vre, Yon'Idegi serves as both life servant to D'Rhen as well as a mentor to newer warriors in the cadre. His name seems to have come from his unwillingness to leave D'Rhen's side, claimed to have once said "One day I will not be his side, and on that day I shall cease to require air." Prior to his current station he has refused promotions and transfers, despite his immense skill and ability to lead.
Yon'Idegi, as a battlefield combatant, is among the most skilled, equal to if not greater than D'Rhen. His aptitude in his modified battlesuit is unparalleled, and he acts as though he possesses a sixth sense. Regardless, he seems to be more willing to throw himself in front of a lascannon than to allow even a few bolter rounds near his master.Warden
Du'eio'Auxa'ilvo'Vior'los (Strong Pride)
Warden Du'eio'Auxa'ilvos is a relatively new member to the group, and while possessing incredible skill, he lives up to his name. While in battle he acts without fault, many times during my stay with the cadre did I catch him questioning his commander, arguing and even once challenged D'Rhen for his position of command. I can not say whether this will or has affected their ability as a team negatively or positively, but trouble must eventually come of it.
Du'eio received his name, as I am told, from a previous commander early in his career. While excelling in both strategy and combat, he often demanded trials as soon as he qualified for them, and despite counsel to show wisdom and calm, rushed forward through the ranks as quickly as possible. As such, his status and rank now are years before most would even be considered for 'Vre, despite his holding the title for nearly 2 Cyr.

END OF REPORT PAGE TWO.
PS: I definitely feel like I had more time and effort spent on these than my firewarriors. Finally got the dry brushing and weathering done on them. These two units were the most completed, so it may be a few days before I add any more pictures. Should have the next update tomorrow which will go into the fluff more, hopefully more pictures next week.
C&C are MOST welcome! Thanks for reading!!!!
