The University of Koniz is one of the most respected universities out of the many that can be found on the planet of Koniz
-- one of the key worlds in the Tamar March
of the Lyran Commonwealth. Hauptmann Klaus Davis retired from his career with the AFFC in 3047 with the intent of taking up the much less stressful occupation of teaching history on his homeworld late the next year. There he expected to live out the remainder of his days in peace and quiet, but the Clan Invasion
a scant few years later put an end to those plans. When Clan Jade Falcon attacked, he was pulled out of retirement by his cousin, Colonel Konrad Davis. Klaus found himself back in uniform and in command of a misfit collection of troops that his cousin could only loosely describe to him as a company. With his mercenary support quickly destroyed, Klaus used his intimate knowledge of the terrain and a few maneuvers he recalled from his own studies of history to wage a lengthy resistance campaign over the next three months before he was ultimately forced to withdraw with his forces. His cousin would be back shortly thereafter, promoted to Leftenant-General and in command of the Koniz Pandora Theater Militia
. Konrad Davis would command the militia for decades, suffering dozens of Clan raids. Under his direction the Koniz PTM would use the planet's impressive economy to turn the planet into one of the most fortified worlds in the Tamar March and a nightmare for invaders. Four decades later the Jade Falcons would be back, and thanks to Davis, Koniz was ready for them: after fighting the clan invaders tooth and nail from a series of fortresses using outdated equipment and receiving no support from the Lyran Commonwealth whatsoever, the militia put up such an effective resistance Clan Jade Falcon would later abandon its offensive to ostensibly deal with more "pressing matters."
