SLF-2409 Sheriff Overview The vexing problem after the Jade Falcons’ massive gains in the Lyran Commonwealth was keeping them. Never content to let anything else do what could be assigned to a BattleMech, the Falcons designed and fielded the Sheriff as a dedicated garrison and lawmaking ‘Mech. Attached to garrison units, it’s often deployed in pairs or individually to exert Jade Falcon control on distant areas of their worlds. A cost-conscious design, it’s been instrumental in keeping order and making “Jade Falcon” more than a name for a distant government to millions of people living under the reign of a distant government. The design has seen a number of rebuilds and tweaks since its inception as designers, commanders, and even Khans have placed their thumbs on the Sheriff’s delicate balance of cost, service, and effectiveness in a stand-up fight.

When Black Dragon forces started another war with Clan Ghost Bear in 3068, they expected their disparate forces to roll over the Clanners as easily as the Star League Defense Force had defeated Clan Smoke Jaguar seven years previous.
Instead, they found a Touman ready for a fight, with new weapons, new tactics, and new ‘Mechs. The Clan had to overcome its preference for slow adaptation as The Second Combine-Ghost Bear War forced it to choose between abandoning massive reforms wholesale or embracing them.
While still utilizing fast, hard-hitting units, the Shaman is the second of a new generation of lighter, heartier ‘Mechs made to go up against the Inner Sphere. As a small, cost-effective unit, the omnipresent Shaman has come to overshadow the Ursus as the representative of those changes.
It has fought in every major engagement between the Ghost Bears and the Draconis Combine over the past 19 years. Never a favorite with MechWarriors, it’s beloved by everyone from Star Commanders to Khans.
