An unremarkable, small world blanketed by grasslands and tundra, Deneb Kaitos was originally settled
by the Terran Hegemony. The world is most famous as being the home of the renowned Deneb Light Cavalry. At
the height of the Star League, the Regular Army boasted a group of 'Mech regiments whose ability to respond
quickly any-where they were needed was legendary. These quick-response troops were officially known as the
Rapid Deployment Mixed Arm Forces, or RDMAF. The general public, however, knew these elite troops -
because of several highly romanticized holoplays - as the Deneb Light Cavalry, after the headquarters of the
RDMAF on Deneb Kaitos and the pony on their banners.
When the Star League collapsed, only one RDMAF unit refused General Kerensky's orders and stayed on
Deneb Kaitos. The Fourth Deneb Light Cavalry was commanded by General Eveline McDennis, who firmly
believed it would be an act of cowardice to abandon the Inner Sphere. Her original intention was to remain on
Deneb Kaitos to protect that world somehow from the warfare that was sure to come. As trade to the world
collapsed and the population began to starve, General McDennis was forced to consider offers of employment
from all five Successor Lords.
After hearing them out, McDennis replied that she and her men would work for whichever House could
guarantee that the people of Deneb Kaitos would have food until they could grow enough on their own. It was a
condition that only the Federated Suns would accept. As the desperately needed shipments of food and
agricultural equipment made their way to Deneb Kaitos, the Fourth Deneb Light Cavalry packed up and
prepared to become part of the AFFS.
Deneb Kaitos has remained under House Davion's banner except for a brief period of Capellan occupation
during the Third Succession War. Although the makeup of the Deneb Light Cavalry eventually reflected that of all
Federated Suns worlds, men and women who grew up in Deneb Kaitos's rugged sheepherding lifestyle continued
to be the Cavalry's most ardent and effective MechWarriors. The continent of Baten is home to the capital of
Cetus and is located in the northern hemisphere; the continents of Menkar and Mira straddle the equator.
Deneb Light Cavalry Regimental Combat Teams are organized slightly different than other RCTs in the Federated
Suns. Around the one 'Mech regiment, which usually has light to medium 'Mechs, there are two hovercraft
regiments and two jump infantry regiments. Also, there are three times the normal number of AeroSpace Fighters
present, plus enough DropShips and JumpShips to transport them.
The Deneb Light Cavalry has always preferred to use a light tan paint scheme to show their pride in their Regular
Army roots, even when other units would adopt camouflage paint schemes. The Deneb Light Cavalry insignia is a
rectangle of black surrounding the bust of a white horse upon a square of gold. The unit number is written in
roman numerals within the golden square. Most of the units are named after swift predators.
 Deneb Kaitos was originally part of the Federated Suns until the creation of The Republic. Deneb Kaitos
became part of Prefecture IV 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.
 Deneb Kaitos was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Deneb Kaitos fell under the influence of the Tikonov territory.
