Kyalla Centrella was elected to become the Magistracy of Canopus's Magestrix after the death of her mother, Tamara, in 3012. Once in office, she pushed for far-reaching social and economic reforms. She adopted a "service for a service" reciprocity as her foreign policy. This allowed an influx of skilled technicians and scientists and stimulated her nation's economy.
Despite her political successes, Centrella's record was not entirely spotless. An ill-advised alliance with Andurien in an attempt to join the two nations resulted in the disastrous Andurien Secession Crisis. After being soundly defeated in that conflict due to terrible strategic decisions, Centrella's mental state slowly deteriorated into paranoia. She began suspecting her daughter of treason, and ordered her arrest and execution. Fortunately, her daughter escaped and mounted a coup with forces pledging their support for her. Magestrix Centrella was deposed on May 8th, 3040 and passed away four years later.

Thiis is fluff. While it's cool too see, it doesn't mean the MOC will be added to the game. Please not, I'm not against that. However mentioning of something that happens in the background doesn't mean it's part of the game ie fight for or against them. I would take the mentions fo various mech types or weapons as more likely, though still not a guarantee.

I wouldn't say it's purely random. A lot of the time I get to the item in question in my own books or read up on it somewhere, and I'm honestly impressed someone out there has gone to all the trouble of hunting down every single 3048/3049 reference in Battletech, and if that wasn't enough, calling out other events that happened in the "past" that have had significant impacts on the "future" of the Inner Sphere. Add that to showcasing 'Mechs and weapon systems and you're getting what I would call a fairly effective day-to-day briefing on what Battletech is and where it is going for the uninitiated and the veteran alike. If you add Randall Bills on top of that sundae, you're getting what is essentially an unprecedented canon timeline accurate-(ish) to the day.

Random aside: my band name when Rock Band came out was Enhanced Interrogation. I'm surprised I haven't seen it used by a real band yet.
