George Lytton is Captain McKinnon’s self-appointed bodyguard. If the Line of Sight between an attacker and Ian McKinnon’s ’Mech passes near (adjacend) a hex occupied by Lytton’s ’Mech, then the player controlling the Raiders can choose to have that attack hit Lytton instead.
Members of the Lytton family have served the McKinnons as bodyguards for more than two centuries. George Lytton’s father fell at the Fourth Battle of Harrow’s Sun while guarding Ross McKinnon, Ian’s father. Since that day, George protected Ian McKinnon’s back in fiercely fought campaigns, raids and border skirmishes. A grim and powerfully built man, Lytton’s combat training went beyond that of the average MechWarrior. An expert with small arms and hand-to-hand combat, he also served as the Raiders’ weapons master.
When an assassin was sent to kill Ian, he attacked Lytton during a Kurita raid. When the Fox’s Teeth moved out to engage the DCMS troops, the assassin took George’s place at the controls of his old Warhammer. Despite his injuries, George was able to warn his Captain before the assassin could complete his assignment.
