Clan Cloud Cobra Overview
Clan Cloud Cobra was one of the original twenty Clans founded by Nicholas Kerensky, named after the cloud cobras found on Arcadia. The Clan's heavily religious orientation and faith-based Cloisters were the legacy of its first Khan, Windham Khatib, who had been a chaplain in the Star League Defense Force. They were also known as one of the most devious and cunning Clans with a talent for politics as well as warfare.
The Cloud Cobras participated in the liberation of Babylon during the Pentagon Campaign but suffered heavy losses, inhibiting their later growth. The Clan was among the first to begin the use of genetic manipulation, creating an eugenics program which would be copied by and become synonymous with the Clans to this day. Politically the Cloud Cobras became moderately Warden in the years prior to Operation Revival, although they maintained little contact with other Clans. Recusing themselves from the trials for a place in the invasion of the Inner Sphere, the Cobras instead opted to husband their strength and managed to emerge from the chaotic events of the 3060s and '70s as the second-strongest surviving Home Clan. By 3090 the Cloud Cobras were a major power in the Clan Homeworlds and evenly split between the Bastion and Aggressor philosophies.
