Kamea Arano is a mechwarrior in Battletech.
Bio[edit | edit source]
Brave, idealistic, and determined, the Lady Kamea Arano is the daughter of the late High Lord Tamati Arano II (Born 2970, died 3022). Tamati Arano II was a High Lord of the Aurigan Coalition. He succeeded his father, High Lord Tamati Arano I, in 2988. Tamati is remembered throughout the Reach as a kind and benevolent ruler. His key accomplishments include a military campaign against pirate activity on Fjaldr, the expansion of social welfare on Coromodir VI, and the Coalition-funded renovation of the Espinosa Refit Yards. Tamati and his wife, Lady Sara Arano, were tragically killed in a JumpShip accident in 3022.
Kamea Arano is faced with a Reach in decline and a powerful reactionary force in the form of her uncle and House Espinoza. However, she is determined to reform the reach away from her uncle's authoritarian vision, towards a more democratic, fair nation. The Coronation Day coup and the subsequent destruction of the Madeiran dropship led to her being pronounced dead by Directorate media. However, together with Lord Alexander Madeira, she found refuge on a small world called Zathras, where the Directorate's assassins finally gave up. She was saved by the Magistracy of Canopus forces, who have a keen interest in curtailing the dictatorial ambitions of Director Espinoza, to prevent the tensions between the Taurian Concordat and the Federated Suns from blowing up into a major war, provoked by the Directorate.
Bankrolled by the Magistracy, Kamea has convinced Lady Centrella to seek out your MechWarrior, recover the Argo, and start the Arano Restoration campaign - all while keeping the Magistracy's involvement secret. Just another war on the Periphery.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Kamea is a good pilot, for the whole two missions you enjoy her presence in the prologue. When you gain control of her later, in Raising the Dead and Escape, she's mediocre due to falling well behind your most veteran pilots.
