Cuidich 'n Clann (Help to the clan)
Generic motto of the Cateran Irregular Regiments.
Caterans are discredited clan warriors. Veteran professional soldiers
who, blinded by their ambition, have left the army to become bandits and
highwaymen. Their targets are usually Teseum transports travelling from
Caledonian mines and refineries towards Cossack or Merovingian
territory. The Cateran combine their military experience with that of
clan warfare. Specialists in mountain ambushes, they immobilize their
enemies at long range, from hidden positions, from which they later
emerge to finish them off at close range if necessary. Their illegal
activities are especially harmful since they affect the economic
lifeblood of Caledonia. However, these actions aren't usually
indiscriminate, as the Cateran keep their loyalty to their original
clan, against which they will never act. At the same time, their clan
rewards them by protecting them and hiring them out to engage in hostile
acts against rival clans, in one of the many internecine conflicts and
disputes of complex Caledonian politics. In this way, the Cateran can
end up being recruited and integrated into any of the irregular
regiments the clan provides for the defense of its territory, or of
Ariadna itself. This service to the nation through the clan is a way of
partially cleaning up their records, but not all of them are so loyal.
There are always rogue elements who don't recognize any authority other
than money and who will work for anyone able to pay them. This is the
reason why in Ariadna, Cateran is always a synonym for marauder and
Miniatures are supplied unpainted. Preparation and assembly may be required.
