A Marine major is one of the orphan ranks, too senior to
command a line company, but too junior to command a
battalion. Newly promoted to major, Ryck reports for
duty as the assistant naval attaché to the Confederation
of Free States, the same government whose troops he’d
recently fought in the Telchines. Ryck isn’t happy about
the assignment, but he buckles down for a long and
boring tour of duty. But action seems to follow Ryck,
and this is no exception.
From the diplomatic post on New Mumbai to leading one of the newly-formed Raider special ops companies, Ryck continues his eventful career as a United Federation Marine.
