Mercenary Military Unit Organization
Many mercenary commanders, having either worked for one of the Great Houses or been part of a House's military, use a modified force structure based on the House's. The Wolf's Dragoons and other Clan-derived mercenary forces structure their units after the Clans'. A few mercenary commands derived from the periphera realms use the same organization as their home nations. Mercenary units rarely exceed more than a company or two in strength, and often field over-strength companies to give themselves an advantage against the regimental strength forces commonly used by Inner Sphere and Clan forces.
Note: A common tactic of some mercenaries is to restructure their forces to take advantage of Clan honor rules. However, such attempts usually have little effect in combat, as the Clans regard warriors who fight for monetary profit as honorless.

[urged] that what was needed was not the vote, but a constitutional amendment enacting that all representative bodies shall consist of women and men in equal numbers, whether elected or nominated or coopted or registered or picked up in the street like a coroners jury. In the case of elected bodies the only way of effecting this is by the Coupled Vote. The representative unit must not be a man or a woman but a man and a woman.”

The hour when earths foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.”

“My faith is the grand drama of my life. Im a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colours for those who see none.”
—Olivier Messiaen (19081992)
