Thats exactly what I remembered of the Jags, they kinda have this berserker-styler attitude in which they fight only for the sake of fighting aka never neglect any rules of combat or do any stuff thats considered even close to unhonorable and completely ignoring the expected outcome of the fight.
A bravely fought loss means more than an unhonorable victory for them.
They think that if they loose a fight without breaking the rules they where not strong enough and surviving Jags are usually looked upon by their fellow warriors for not dying in battle (look at that Trent guy).
You could say they are taking the warrior lifestyle the most serious of all the clans (which makes them "bad" people seen from IS perspective).
True to some extent.
You are correct in your analysis of my statement of how the Jaguar's fight. That much is ture, they are the most strict adherents to honorable warfare as set down by the Founder. An honorable loss is not better than a dishonorable victory, because the latter would never happen. To a Jaguar honorable combat is the only type of combat, therefore a loss is a loss and a win is a win, there is no distinction between honorable and not, unless it is them evaluating how the enemy fought.
Now on the issue of how warriors that survived Tukayyid were treated, that is purely subjective. If you are refering to Paul Moon and Trent, I will once again state that Exodus Road through Prince of Havoc, are all written will one point of view (the Inner Sphere), I say this because the Jaguar POV was only put there to show how depraved and evil they were. The whole series is BS and throws and "example" of Jaguar society
into serious doubt. Paul Moon was drawn up to be the most irredeemably evil character in Exodus Road, he
was Trent's torrmentor the entire book, so that it ended up with a traitor looking like a good guy. If you
believe that because of one character an entire clan deserved to die then you do not grasp the background
and mentality of battletech. Either way the point is if you were under Paul Moon, then yes you were treat like
shit if you were a Tukayyid survivor, if you were under units in Beta Galaxy then you were respected as
vetrans and warriors learned from your experience, under Alpha Galaxy you were treated no differently than
any other warrior who had failed in combat, it was a loss of honor but the loss of honor to the clan was much
more important than any personal failing. The character Star Colonel Paul Moon was another unbelievable
imagining from the IS writers to drive home that CSJ is evil and deserves to be exterminated...the four books
before "Sword and Fire", Exodus Road, Grave Covenant, The Hunters, and Freebrith are all just the writers
trying to convince old Battletech die-hards, like myself and many others, that a faction can be truely evil and
deserves to be exterminated, and that the ones doing it were truely on the righteous path. Sorry not buying
it, not only was it MY Clan, but no faction in Battletech is white as snow...ever.
