[3059] One of the most bizarre incidents during Operation Bulldog occurred when the Second An Ting Legion landed on Irece and challenged the Fifth Garrison Cluster to a "test of stamina." SLDF infantryman Ewan Paltrow, a legendary drinker of the Second An Ting, pitted himself against Nova Cat Pilot Sola, and proceeded to drink her under the table. Despite losing, Pilot Sola won the admiration of the entire Xi Galaxy - once she had recovered from her hospitalization from alcohol poisoning.

After Clan Nova Cat was Abjured and forced to leave Clan space following the Great Refusal, The Nova Cat's made their new home on Irece. The clans scientist's took a small population of the clan's totem animal with them.

A native feline predator on Dagda, it resembles the Terran lion, but is smaller and skinnier. One of many predators on a planet dominated by predatory species, the nova cat has developed unique defense measures to discourage attacks. When threatened, the cat's barbed and poisonous mane stands on end The poison, stored in glands by the hair roots, causes intense pain through skin contact. The same mane gave the cat its name: when the mane is erect, the cat's head looks like a star gone nova.

Since being introduced to their new environment on Irece, the cats have adapted quickly.
