    Solahma Warrior

    Like all Clan warriors, Fox was bred for combat.  He did not excel at this, and
    was deemed only average throughout his successful career.  Although he did
    not become a top Nova Cat warrior, he would get the job done, both before and
    during the invasion.  Though he was not a part of the Tukayyid 'mistake' (as he
    likes to call it), Fox deeply felt the loss.  After the truce, he maintained his
    success as a warrior for the Nova Cats, until age became a factor and he simply
    fell into the ranks of the Solahma.  He did not resent or feel any anger at this
    fact, and accepted it as the way of the Clans.  It also did not effect his
    battlefield efficiency.
    Fox typically fought with other warriors who shared his feelings.  He found
    comfort in the fact that he was neither alone in his age nor his solahma rank.  
    His status as Star Commander gave him much pride, ensuring he could serve
    his Clan to the best of his abilities.
    Fox's transfer to the Strikers teamed him with some rather uncanny Clansmen.
    He saw some hope for Jarred and Cyric.  He believed Dante's focus on
    technician interests was unnatural and taboo for a Clan warrior.  Fox was
    primarily disappointed with his reassignment to the Strikers because of Shard.  
    Fox was one of many who believed Shard should not have remained in the
    ranks of the Nova Cat warrior caste, as he did not fit into the Clans regular
    concept of honor.
    Fox's BattleMech was an Inner Sphere Bushwhacker.  The Mech's history of
    success seemed to support his opinion that the Bushwhacker is an ideal
    command Mech.  Its stubborn armor, mild weapon array, and high speed
    allowed it to perform command duties while under Fox's guidance.
    During an attack by Word of Blake death squads in 3068, Mechwarrior Fox was
    able to make contact with the Blakist attackers and divert them through the
    Clan system of batchall.  The main strike force that would have hit the Strider's
    Strikers base head-on was instead led into a chase of the retreating forces.  
    The steep canyon through which the Blakists were corralled allowed Fox and
    his solahmas to block the way.  The small Clan group's bid of 5 Mechs to the
    Blakists' 36 stood no chance of victory.  Mechwarrior Fox's bid did succeed
    however in buying time for the evacuating units of the Strikers.  Because the
    Blakists had ignored bidding honorably in a move to quickly defeat their foes,
    the solahma force were utterly destroyed and none taken prisoner.  All solahma
    warriors were able to find comfort in meeting an end well within their Clan
    culture's context of glory and honor.
