Type: Dropship Commander
Callsign: Lone Wolf
Unit: 1st Davion Guards
Dropship: Union Class (3055 upgrade)
Status: Operation Bulldog, Port Arthur
Graduate of "The Warriors Hall" on New Syrtis, Captain Thomas Nash originally intended to be a Mechwarrior. He was 6'4 at 18 when he entered the Hall and continued growing until he reached his current height of 6'11" when he graduated in 3025. Short of being assigned an Atlas class Battlemech, Nash has outgrown the ability to be comfortable in the cockpit of a battlemech.
Being a promising officer, he was put back into school for Dropship command, figuring that a Dropship bridge would be spacious enough to accommodate the large man. Nash's disappointment with not being in a Battlemech on the front lines comes out from time to time. Those close to him know he is just venting and that his laid back personality will return in short order.

By the time Nash was 30 he was commanding his own dropship called "The Lone Wolf". He is a veteran of the 4th Succession war and the War of 3039.
The Lone Wolf was badly damaged in 3039, and was lucky to be sent to New Avalon for repairs and reassigned to the 1st Davion Guards. Nash and the Lone Wolf remained on New Avalon during the Clan Invasion, being held in reserve like the rest of the 1st Davion Guards. In 3055 The Lone Wolf was selected by the New Avalon Institute of Science for an overhaul. All of her targeting and weapon systems were upgraded. She was assigned to transport the 7th Company of the 1st Davion Guards as part of Operation Bulldog.
Captain Nash can be a little rough around the edges at times, acting more like a Non-Comissioned Officer than an academy graduate. Nash has turned down promotions to command Jumpships and even a recent offer for a first officers post on one of the new Federated Suns Frigates. He figures that that The Lone Wolf is 13 member in the company of Battlemechs she carries. "She may not walk that fast, but you should see her Jump!" Nash jokes. His prior battlemech training and experience in two campaigns makes him a valuable asset to any unit that has been assigned to The Lone Wolf. Nash figures that Operation Bulldog will be his last campaign after which he will return to New Syrtis to become an instructor at "The Warrior's Hall".
