    Nova Cat Liaison

    Mechwarrior Savalas was chosen by his superiors to monitor Nova Cat/Steel
    Viper relationships within the Strider's Strikers.  Though some of the Steel
    Vipers feel he is somewhat of a spy, others find him worthy of their respect.  He
    is indeed worthy of at least some respect considering his BattleMech
    assignment, the highly symbolic and very rare 70 ton Nova Cat.  Intended to
    display the prominence of the Nova Cats within the Strider's Strikers, the Nova
    Cat Mech is joined by several classic Clan designs such as the Warhawk and
    Turkina.  Though piloted by Steel Viper members, these Mechs are also
    intended to openly display the cooperation of Warden Clans with Inner Sphere
    forces.
    Savalas can often be found gambling with Inner Sphere members of the
    Strikers.  His vice often profits him both financially and culturally as he learns
    much about the ways and traditions of Inner Sphere peoples.  He has so far
    enjoyed his assignment to work with the Strikers' mercenaries, though the team
    has seen much loss in more recent years.  He has made many friends amongst
    the Strikers' finest, including infantry commanders Ryan Harrison and William
    Pay.
    Savalas hopes to prove himself as a liaison to maintain his important position.  
    The liaison side of his job involves creating profiles of social interactions
    between the new Steel Viper Wardens and the already established Nova Cat
    members.  So far the Vipers appear to behave as normal new recruits.  They
    often find themselves uncomfortable during social events amongst veterans of
    the mercenary force.  Challenges between both Clans, as well as the Inner
    Sphere members, have been declared and resolved numerous times.  This has
    proven that Clan tactics and culture have been at least partially imported, or
    partially recognized, by the Inner Sphere members of the mercenary unit.  
    Savalas believes the Inner Sphere members are acting as a buffer, relieving
    some of the tension between the two Clans.  Though Clan warriors have scoffed
    at such a theory, evidence does support his belief.  Fewer Clan versus Clan
    challenging occurs when Inner Sphere members of the unit are present during
    times of conflicting interest.
    Savalas has fulfilled his superior's requests, sending weekly data sheets back
    to Nova Cat officials.  It is likely he will continue to be a successful member of
    the Steel Viper Beta star.  Though he has slowly gained some support from his
    starmates, other Steel Vipers are still suspicious of his behavior and purpose.  
    In the meantime, Savalas continues acting as both a logistical officer for the
    Nova Cats and a Mechwarrior for the Strikers.
    Savalas has become a center-point within the Clan portion of the team.  He is
    seen by most as the individual who has integrated the most with the Inner
    Sphere's way of life.  This has had both positive and negative effects on his
    reputation.  He is seen as one of the most helpful Clan warriors by most Inner
    Sphere pilots, and has become a trusted ally in balancing the two sides of the
    unit.  However his integration has come at great cost by setting him at odds
    with the more influential members of the hard-line Clan portion of the team,
    namely Sasha Breen and her inner circle of Steel Viper pilots.
