The Cunninghams of Kestrel gained their fortunes long ago as owners of the largest agricultural concern on this breadbasket world, so it was only natural that they received the ducal title to their homeworld by First Prince Simon Davion. Today the Cunninghams are consistently among the top ten wealthiest families in the Federated Suns. Much of the family concentrates on their expansive business empire, which was initially built upon an agricultural foundation but has since swelled to encompass a broader range of commerce. At the same time, there are those that have branched out to involve themselves materially within the political structures of the Federated Suns, though their opponents note that their relatives within the government are only out to look after their family’s concerns.

[3062] The units assigned to the Kestrel Combat Region were called into action a number of times throughout the Succession Wars, as the Combine pushed deep into the Suns, virtually placing the unit on the front lines. Though the Kestrel CMM has not been called into active service in more than a century, the unit retains many of the trophies of war it took throughout the years, including one fully functional Star League-era Thug once piloted by Coordinator Jinjiro Kurita and the battle standard for the First Sword of Light, taken in the unsuccessful battle for Robinson in 2854.

Leftenant General Vivian Petty is a career officer whose career stalled when she took command of the Kestrel Militia. Long past recriminations and resentment, Petty is now content with her position. Since her headquarters was a virtual museum of the AFFS history when she took charge of the unit, she has turned it into just that, earning a doctoral degree in history and sociology and eventually becoming the Crucis March's official historian.
