The Battle For Shokwa has begun. Federation controlled party Shokwa Liberals are under attack from the independent Freedom Party of Caerus who recently commenced operations in the system. The outcome of the conflict has yet to be decided, but the Freedom Party undoubtedly have the upper hand. Citizens flocked to the side of the independents almost as soon as they arrived and with the alleged assistance of the mercenary group, the 8th Dragon Squadron, it appears that Shokwa will soon become an independently controlled sector.
Did I make a mistake? In my line of work families are not an attachment I can afford but the kid is the only tie to my real family. Its great that the other Dragons know who I am.

Ramirez scowled at him and threw up her hands in resignation. The relationship between her and the leader of the Freedom Party was no secret to members of the group but Ramirez didn’t like to talk about it. She rapidly changed the subject. “Are you aware of how much local support we have lost in Caerus recently?
