         Clan Goliath Scorpion developed Undine battle armor, which is specially designed for underwater warfare.
         Staunchly devoted to the Warden cause, Clan Goliath Scorpion seeks to rebuild the once-mighty Star League by reassembling its scattered pieces like a jigsaw puzzle.   The most enigmatic warriors of the Clan are called the Seekers, modern knights errant steeped in the honor code of zellbrigen and charged with hunting for artifacts of that bygone age.   Many Seekers and other Scorpion warriors seek visionary guidance for this quest by ingesting necrosia, a potion derived from the venom of Goliath scorpions.
         The Undine is an example of the specialized Clan battle-armor designs created in response to the appearance of innovative new Inner Sphere battlesuits such as the Draconis Combine's Kanazuchi and the Free Worlds League's Achileus designs.   After these new designs appeared, Clan forces began to find their Elementals increasingly out-flanked and out-gunned by Inner Sphere BattleArmor troops.   In response, some Clans began to redevelop mission-specific battle armor to supplement the Elementals already in the field.


         The Undine design is based on underwater industrial exoskeletons developed by the Clan in 2842 to aid underwater mining efforts on Dagda.   These exoskeletons sported monstrously shaped titanium hulls, large-bore drills and grasping claws.   (These same exoskeletons were the basis for the standard Clan Elemental BattleArmor.)
         The necessary modifications to the exoskeleton design proved fairly simple.   The most difficult challenge proved to be equipping the design with appropriate weaponry for its mission.   The Goliath Scorpion engineers ultimately created an advanced multi-role torpedo/missile launcher for the design.   To reflect the design's capability to strike from below the surface of water, the engineers christened the new design the Undine, after a mythological water creature.


         After fleeing from the Clan Home Worlds, the Goliath Scorpions joined Clan Snord at Camelot Command. From that base they have since spread out throughout the Human Sphere, searching for Star League relics. Most Snord or Goliath Scorpion Seekers now have an Undine with them just in case they need to perform any under water excavations. As such, Undines can be seen regularly throughout the Human Sphere, though rarely out of the hands of a Seeker.
