Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Captain Paul Kalishka
Commander of "The Unforgiven" Mercenary Company
Captain Paul Kalishka is the commander of The Unforgiven, a veteran jump infantry mercenary company. In addition to his Veteran NPC Jump Infantry Trooper status, he is well-trained in Leadership, Tactics and Strategy. He has few other marketable skills beyond soldiering, and does not have much of a purpose beyond his present career, and concern for the troops under his command, who remain his only family.
Born in 2966, Captain Kalishka was a House Davion infantry officer who served for fifteen years. He retired from his position in the Islambad Crucis March Militia upon hearing about the brutal slaughter of his family by a bandit raid in 3007. Determined to seek revenge, he took his pension and contacts among other retiring soldiers, and founded a mercenary force that could travel the Periphery and eventually punish the miscreants. Eventually, in 3019, he tracked the group down on Tortuga, and destroyed them to a man.
Over the years as commander of his mercenary unit, he has managed to hold them together, but has slowly lost his youthful zeal for combat, and taken increasingly sedate contracts as a garrison or cadre force. He uses the unit’s experience and the fact that they are jump infantry, to gain easy contracts, but since most of his troopers are also approaching their own “retirement” age, they are okay with this.
