During the Amaris Civil war, many citizens of the five Houses left to join with Kerensky. Many volunteers had been soldiers and officers in the House militaries who risked court-martial or even summary execution for going AWOL. Some MechWarriors and Aerospace Pilots escaped with their vehicles. The unexpected response deeply moved General Kerensky and the rest of the SLDF. The General gladly accepted these 'Loyalists' as they came to be known, into his army. Even the very old and very young were given tasks to keep the SLDF supplied and fit.
He even managed to set up a makeshift MechWarrior school on Circinus, a former colony of the Rim Worlds Republic, where he trained many of the Loyalists to pilot 'Mechs in the years 2768 to 2772. These Loyalists eventually formed light 'Mech units, equipped with 'Mechs secretly purchased from Lyran and Marik factories. In their 'Mechs decorated with the royal purple stripes, the Loyalists served with great distinction as reconnaissance units in the war, though their casualties were always amongst the highest.
