What is the meaning In the jade falcon banner (The Jade Falcon clutching the katana with what looks to me like a letter D). It's probably not a D though just wondering what that is/means.
after a brief investigation i have determined its a rank of some kind, I think..
The falcon cluching a katana is part of a tale of or clans first kahn i will sum it up as best as i can
Elizabeth Hazen was the first person to train a jade falcon a genetic enginerd preditor made to hunt a flying snake in the kerensky cluster she named it turkana.
Shortly after turkanas death elizabeth and general dehaviler were sent with infantry to subdue a rebellion on the planet eden during the combat her mech went down and she ejected and was hit in the head. When she came too dehavilers mech went down to inferno rounds and as he ejected he was struck by one and burned to death. The shock of a close friend dying in such a way so soon after the death of her beloved falcon broke Elizabeth and she fled into the jungle.
There as she was feeling sorry for herself turkana appered to her and scolded her once strong mistress for what she had become and commanede her to go back and fight. Elizabeth responded with the fact she had no weapons to which the falcon replied "have you not learned that a warrior needs no other weapon but herself mechs and swords are extensions of the weapon you already are" elizabeth heartend returned to the battle with just her hands determend to end the rebellion as she came upon the enemy a screach filled the air and turkana dropped dehavilers katana to her mistress
While this is not the whole tail that appers in the jade falcon book it is the core with a few bits cut
