Ransom

Clan custom dictates that a warrior who has been successful at his Trial of Bloodright may be rewarded with a gift by the Clan. Depending upon the warrior's success during the Trial, the ransom might range from the right to choose what type of weapon he will use as a warrior to the right to command a special unit. At the time Khan Natasha Kerensky of the Wolves returned from the Inner Sphere and then underwent her second Trial of Bloodright, ilKhan Ulric Kerensky awarded her a ransom of the right to form the Thirteenth Wolf Guards.

Rede

One of the many forms honor takes in the Clans, a rede is an honor-bound promise. Breaking a rede may be punised by death.

Remembrance, The

The Remembrance is an ongoing heroic saga detailing Clan history from the time of the Exodus from the Inner Sphere to the present day. The Remembrance is continually expanded to include contemporary events. Each Clan has a slightly different version reflecting their own opinions and experiences. All Clan warriors can quote whole verses of the marvelous epic from memory, and it is common to see passages from the book lovingly painted in the sides of OmniMechs, fighters, and even battle armor.

Ristar

This term refers to a particularly gifted warrior on his or her way to high position. It is probably derived from the expression "rising star."
