in the 2460's Rigel Arcasi made a name for himself after fighting against the Sniverian and even the Beta Squadron Rebels. During the Basaran Kiev War , his lieutenant Arcto Archon defected to Basaran's forces this pissed him off greatly.
When Arcto served his time for defection and was allowed to return to the USR he was belittled endlessly by Arcasi.
Rigel and Arcto Archon were part of the defense of Sukhoi and eventually the defenses of Capricon and Kanderarch . Rigel Arcasi disgruntled with the rebels, the Viserak and now the Kandlian -Terran conflict he left USR and formed his own allied force called Black Wing Squadron .
He led his forces to battle against Harkoff on Borelecava along with new found allies Noemi Cerda and his old enemy Gerard Tygore in an enemy mine to stop Harkoff (they failed) Later on he would again ally with them during the temporal Arc of the UTSEA Campaign although once again they failed.
Finally upon the creation of the multi national Axis of Freedom he and Blackwing Squadron joined and became a permenant member, despite this during the second alliance on Borelecava he was not present.
