Northwind was founded in the early years of space exploration by Scots, Irish, and Welsh colonists, who found
the temperate, foggy world very much like their homelands on Terra. Clan Stuart, one of the more prominent
groups among these colonists, also brought with them a small parade company that descended from the military
forces of ancient Scotland. This company ultimately grew into the famed Northwind Highlanders mercenary
regiment, after the Elders of Northwind elected to form a standing defense force, starting with the Kearny
Highlanders (named after Kearny, a northern mining settlement). After the collapse of the Star League,
Northwind was fought over mostly by the forces of Houses Davion and Liao, both of whom used the world as a
bargaining chip in securing the employment of the Highlanders. In 3057, after the breakup of the Federated
Commonwealth, Northwind, and its famed Highlanders, finally won its independence from both realms. Today,
the people of Northwind still cling to their Scottish, Irish, and Welsh roots, and their world is home to the
Northwind Military Academy, on the continent of New Lanark, along with the planetary capital city of Tara. The
largest of Northwind's continents, New Lanark is also home to "The Castle", an old Star League-era fortification
on the Tilman River. The industrial mining city of Kearny is located on Northwind's second-largest landmass, of
the same name, while a third continent, Halidon, surrounded by the Falkirk Sea and the Argyle Islands, is home
to a secondary spaceport and an annex of the Northwind Military Academy focused on aerospace combat.
Prefecture II, and her immediate forces surrounding her become trapped out side of the Fortress Republic when
its wall come up.
* Countess Tara Campbell and her forces have become known for rendering aid to the worlds in need of
assistance. Her Highlander Banner is oft seen supporting the Republic Forces of General Tactus as his forces
move throughout the Inner Sphere attacking and rallying the people to the Republic Banner. Campbell's strength
and leadership have made her, and her Highlanders both revered and feared though the galaxy. It is said that her
banner, when it appears on the field of battle, can change the tide of war.
 Northwind, home of the Northwind Highlanders, has always had loyalty to the powers that be. Initially
part of the Star League and then on its own. After the creation of The Republic Northwind became part of
Prefecture III under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
 Northwind remained part of The Republic and is now under its protection, inside the Fortress Republic.
