The Regent is a replica of the highly modified Terra-class saber originally made by Augustus Serminius, Lord Paramount of House Lawborne.
Like all sabers in this class, the Regent is built for combat, but this particular model has been modified to be more appropriate for the station of the man who created it.
The emitter features a dark and light claw pattern which is emblematic of the House Lawborne crest. There is a diamond window in the upper body section which is also an emblem of this House.
An armitage pommel and spiral grooved grip section are just as functional as they are beautiful. Indeed this is a weapon befitting a Lord.
"In truth, it is not me they are after. It's you. I just happen to be in the way."
-Lord Augustus Serminius addressing his people during the invasion of Altaban
House Lawborne is a great house of the Inner Sphere which pledges direct fealty to the Imperium. The Knights of House Lawborne are fierce warriors, renown for their skill at arms, each one a master of saber combat.
Ruled over by Lord Paramount Augustus on the terrestrial world of Altaban, the furious onslaught of Lawborne soldiers can be found on the battlefields across the Periphery Worlds. From the blazing attack ships off the shoulder of Orion to the glittering C-beams near the Tannhäuser Gate, the Lawborne Knights have left their mark.
Augustus Serminius is the present Lord Paramount of House Lawborne. Being well over a century in age, he still valiantly leads his Knights into combat against any and all enemies of the Imperium. Legend has it that the full account of the Lord's victories would take well over a fortnight to recite and the legend is ever growing.
His personal saber, the Regent, was created by his own hand when he was forced to defend his home world against an invasion by the Sovereignty during the Great War. While the invasion was ultimately repelled, the onslaught left his home world of Altaban scorched by devastating warfare and the land will bear a great scar for centuries to come.
Even though the Armistice is signed between the Imperium and the Sovereignty, with all Great Houses agreeing to end hostilities, the mighty patriarch of House Lawborne vows he will one day have his revenge, in this life or the next.
