Maximillian Liao

Melissa Steiner

Daughter of Katrina Steiner and wife of Hanse Davion, Melissa became Archon of the Lyran half of the Federated Commonwealth. She was nearly universally beloved, by friends, allies, and enemies alike. The Lyran people in particular loved her dearly. Which is partially why at 7:21PM, on the 19th of June, 3055, on
Tharkad during a banquet she was attending, her assassination, broadcast live across the Inner Sphere, shocked all; even reaching into Clan space, where Phelan Ward learned of his mother's death, and father's maiming via the same bombs. The actual bombs used for the assassination were concealed in four flower pots housing flowering Mycosia Pseudoflora plants. (Genetically-engineered versions of the Mycosia blossoms which Hanse Davion had shipped to Terra for his and Melissa's wedding (For the bridesmaids' bouquets.), years before.) Mycosia, the naturally-occurring variety of the plant, blooms only once a year on the planet Andalusia, for a short period. The petals are green. After their surprise appearance at Melissa's wedding, she adopted them as her favorite; seldom appearing in public without some token reminder of the blossoms; moreso after Mycosia Pseudoflora was developed.

Characters who are primarily associated with the Clans. Clan naming conventions differ from the more traditional of ones of the Inner Sphere; a Clanner is given only one name at the beginning of his or her life. No family names are given; they must be earned through combat, later in life. (When specificness is required, a Clanner uses his Clan's name as his family name; eg: "Vladimir Ward" would have been "Vladimir Wolf" before earning his Bloodname.)
