Tai-i (Captain) Kambei Shimada is the Commanding officer of the 3rd Company, 3rd Battalion, in the 5th Sword of the Light. Kambei's command saw limited action in the recent conflict with Clan Ghost Bear. They were ravaged in the initial assault and were never brought back up to full strength. Still waiting for replacement Mechs, parts and Mechwarriors, Shimada has been assigned to Solaris VII.
He is to represent all of the Draconis Combine in the first ever Solaris Olympiad Series. He is also hoping that doing well in the S.O.S. will insure better replacement mechs and top notch recruits for his unit.
