    Solahma Outcast

    Mechwarrior Shard was considered a scholar among many of his solahma
    warriors.  Shard spent nearly all of his time reading literary works, primarily
    those of ancient Terran Old English history.  Among the generation of Clan
    warriors of whom most finished their careers before the Clan invasion of the
    Inner Sphere had begun,  Shard desperately wanted to fight on Tukayyid.  
    However his early disgrace using tactics unknown to the Clans destroyed any
    chance at a future bloodname.  His obsessions with honor went well beyond
    those of the Clans.  Shard's own code of honor was dictated by what he learned
    from his literature, primarily the short epic "the Battle of Maldon".  Shard was a
    strong believer in vengeance of fallen allies.  He was known for breaking
    zellbrigen during battle on a number of occasions, trying to ensure that he
    could avenge fallen fellow warriors.  Though one of his famous acts towards
    such vengeance angered Commander Carns, the solahma's aim held true in
    protecting a fallen Duo Maxwell.  One of Shard's twin gauss shells crushed the
    cockpit of Maxwell's attacker, instantly killing the enemy pilot.  Shard piloted an
    experimentally customized Sirocco, which he had named Wulfstan.  The name
    came from his books, and its was significant in meaning "he who holds the
    bridge".
    Shard was killed in battle against Blakist attackers on the Strider's Strikers
    Head Quarters in 3068.  He finally won over his commander's approval after
    avenging Mechwarrior Jarred's death in the opening sequences of the lopsided
    firefight.  The solahmas faced an outstanding number of opponents with 36
    Blakists pushing past their five Clan Mechs.  All of the solahmas were killed
    during the ensuing battle as the Blakists held no interest in taking prisoners of
    any kind.
