Battletech: Black Star Ascendant
At this particular moment, when the game starts, your character will have spent the immediately previous 18 months in training, and have just received notice to report for your first posting. Details of this notice will be provided when the first IC scene opens.

The first year of this training was solely focused on cross-training in whatever your character's 'other' style is (be it Battlemechs, or Battlesuits), as part of a group of twenty individuals, with no knowledge that they were training for anything other than just because the Terran Republic wanted to experiment with an expanded combined arms doctrine. After that year, the numbers were culled and your character - and them alone of their original twenty-person group - were sent to a second training camp, where they were first informed of the intention of the RAF to create what command called 'the Blackstar Initiative'. These secondary groups consisted of twelve trainees like your character, the unique quality of the group being that one language and one language only was spoken throughout this training period - whichever your character's Blackstar specialty language is - while the group focused on honing the finer points of covert operations and infiltration.

At the end of that secondary six-month period, your characters were released from training and informed that someone would be in contact with them - along with a very stern reminder that everything they had seen or done was Top Secret and Confidential. It wasn't until two days later that your character received confirmation from Blackstar command that they had been selected for inclusion in the Blackstar program. Whether or not anyone - or no one - else from their secondary training unit made it in was never confirmed or denied. The existence of additional cells of Blackstars is also a mystery - for all your character knows, they're a part of the only one in the universe.
