    After the second secession war, the Praetorian started as a refitted CN9-AL from an old and
    abused CN9-A cobbled together from spare parts. This machine would serve for nearly 150
    years before falling on an unknown battlefield during the third secession war. It would
    eventually be salvaged and held as parts in a storage warehouse due to the limited supply
    available to the house that had collected it. Eventually, the scrap would be traded and
    retarded until it came into the hands of a mercenary company MechWarrior who saw potential
    in the pile of scrap.

    The Praetorian prioritizes medium- to close-range engagements. It replaces the LRM 10 of the
    original Centurian line. In its place, a 4-ton hatchet is placed in its left arm while a
    third Photech 806c medium laser is added to the left torso to complement the two mounted in
    the center. The heat sinks are upped from the CN9-AL's impressive 16 to 18 to help offset
    the thermal load.

    The Praetorian retains the speed of the CN9 line but boosts the armor of the CN9-AL. The
    Defiance B3L provides a means of softening up a target at medium range as the Praetorian
    closes the distance. Up close, the 3 medium lasers strip armor with casual ease, readying
    the prey for the physical assault. The 4-ton hatchet is capable of delivering a PPC's worth
    of damage savaging any medium to light battlemech in a single blow.
