Holmes

Ferrite: 1575
Bioptics: 1050
Crystal: 70

The Holmes mecha was designed by Consolidated Mecha to serve as a mobile command unit for guerrilla attacks and is found in battalions throughout the galaxy. This design focuses on utilizing scanners, radars and deep-range sensors, all built into the Consolidated type 6 A.I. The type 6 is the base model of the Consolidated A.I. line and has proven to be reliable and effective.

One unexpected benefit of the extensive scanning equipment in this A.I. is a sizable boost to damage from laser weapons. As the Holmes is upgraded, this enhancement continues to increase. Double-powered overload blasts are also produced with only minor upgrades and at very high levels, these enhancements are significant. When these enhancements align, the firepower of the Holmes is legendary.

The Holmes comes out of the factory ready for battle and is loaded with quadruple Cornerian Ion blasters. To maximize the Holmes' agile design, the commonly-used but bulky shield emitters were intentionally omitted from the schematics. Instead, the Holmes was designed to accommodate multiple pieces of chassis equipment. These chassis elements help the Holmes react more quickly than many of the other small mecha and subsequently survive longer in battle than many commanders expect. A later design upgrade also added several self-generating shield pods that can be utilized by more experienced pilots.

The Holmes is outfitted with a small internal engine, the MagnaStar. Produced by Shinayashi Corp., the MagnaStar is manufactured exclusively for use in the Holmes. The MagnaStar gains several moderate boosts to its speed as the Holmes is developed. At higher levels, the speed boosts are even greater, allowing the Holmes to produce a withering fusillade of fire for speedy attacks when the tide of battle changes.

Generals and their staff often use the Holmes for extended fights, permitting them to make strategy changes on the fly. The benefits of this light mecha make them popular with pirate captains, especially those who prefer to let their minions incur any risk. Due to it's popularity, the Holmes is often painted with the colors and insignia of the government, clan or gang that it fights for.

Legendary Pilots

  • Scott Young

    Scott Young

    During the Gorax Plague of 3311, a number of Novum Dolorum’s inhabitants were taken as test subjects for gruesome experiments. The clan Myth & Legends: Blood Wolves were contracted by some of the prisoners’ families to rescue them. Information was sparse due to the plague, but Scott Young went in under deep cover as a Gorax-infected pilot to perform recon. After locating one of the testing sites, he spearheaded an offensive with his powerful trio of Holmes and managed to free three dozen prisoners. While covering their retreat, his entire squadron was taken down by a legion of Ambershard Stalkers, and he went MIA. Scott’s heroism will forever be remembered by his family, as well as those he saved.
