- "Mestiks? ohh him, yea, I believe he had went missing from our House during the Crusades. He had the cunning yet the cowardice in him, some of his superiors had despised that and pushed him around. Enough for him to somehow join sis's crew, which he would abandon right away after the fallout of the Jackals' leadership, never to be seen again…up until he sticked his little "weasel" head out and grabbed many Eliksni to his plan of harassing the system. Just end him please."

Mestiks, the Weasel (formerly known as Mestiks, Jackal Baron) was a former member of The Jackal Syndicate and current leader of the Weasel's Claw. Known for his deceitful behavior but usual cowardice coupled, he began his assault onto the inner system which caught a bounty onto his head by the House of Lions.
Winter and Wolves
Born under the House of Winter, not much is known about Mestiks up until he joined the House of Wolves when he got older. From there he would began to grow his skills of thievery and deceit, though his coward tendencies would also grow as well, avoiding any potential chances of death and abandoning his Wolf pack whenever felt necessary to him, leading to the eventual docking of his lower arms.
He would decide to abandon the Wolves after the destruction of Orbiks Prime and the end of the Wolf Rebellion, opting to remain Houseless until he came into forces with the House of Dusk, and was undocked, allowing him to do whatever he pleased that could help his House. He performed numerous raids across the EDZ against Human remnant settlements following the Red War, avoiding any sort of altercations that could get him killed, covering his tracks after his raiding. However at some point during his raids, he would soon encounter a Cabal Centurion that had picked up his tracks and left him grievously wounded; with his lower torso being amputated. But he would soon replace them with mechanical ones, leaving it as a scarring reminder to stay far from any confrontation within his planned operations. Eventually right before the events of Forsaken, Mestiks would wound up with the House of Lions as he began to see no use in the Dusk anymore following the loss of numerous leaders being taken out the Guardians.
Struggles within the Lions
Despite his indoctrination into the House, Mestiks would began to notice notable problems that he had never faced with the Dusk, primarily his tendencies to get away whenever conflict gets close to him. Though while his strategies were marvelous, the Lions did not respected the way he operated as they saw it completely cowardly, resulting in his punishment being his Ether rations getting cut down and was put into more tasks that forced him to get physical, usually in the front lines commanding light forces of Dregs and Wretches into combat in hopes to get him to change his tactics. Confused with the treatment he was put through and believing that the Lions were looking him down upon, Mestiks quickly became frustrated and bitter towards most of those within the House save for his new but seemingly temporary friendships with the lower rung of the House, as well as beginning to resent his choice in joining the Lions, hoping to find any sort of chance to quickly get away from the House.
New Life within the Jackal's Circle
His hopes would come to pass when the Crusades of the Jackals began, though usually sent into the front lines during the usual small skirmishes between the Lions and the rising Jackal Syndicate, nothing much was changed for his growing hatred and paranoia with the house until right before the raid on the Jackals' Lair, Mestiks would attempt to evade another battle that resulted in the death of his Captain and his immediate captured by the Jackals as the Lions retreated. Held captive, Mestiks' paranoia had began to continually grow on him, believing that death had finally caught up to him and was growing unhinged. Sent before the Kell of Jackals, Mestiks was seen by Seriviks for his potential with his schemes and offered him a spot within the Syndicate, intrigued, the young former Lion would obliged to this offer and took up as a lieutenant within their ranks.
After the death of Seriviks, the Jackals were leveled in the loss of their leader, soon creating a power vacuum that would lead Mestiks to ascend up to the position of a Baron. However, with the constant attacks by the Guardians and the wrathful Lions, Mestiks would see the loosening of the Syndicate's forces and left after believing that the Jackals had been finally destroyed, leaving his whereabouts unknown to many of his Jackal allies and those of the Lions as well.
Formation of the Weasels
- "This will be the day that we will no longer be Drehks, scoundrels, or malcontents, today will be the day we show the Houses that we are not pushovers, not thieves, or anything of the weak. We will show our true potential, our strength, our cunning, our resharpened blades. We will show all across the Houses and the inner System, that we are not weak, nor Drekhs, but warriors, deception, and will make them suffer for wronging us!"
- — Mestiks rallying his troops
For a long time Mestiks was gone and at that point the House of Lions thought he was dead, until he came back with a new group, a group that he led, Mestiks led his troops to surprise attack the Reef which lead to the death of thousands of people around the Tangled Shore since they didn't know what was going on, after this horrific attack the Guardians were called in, as the Guardians fought through the Fallen they eventually found Mestiks trying to recruit poor members of the House of Lions.
- "You be peasants to that Kell no longer, join me and your purpose will be rewarded with endless riches!"
- — Mestiks to Lion Dregs
The members roared with excitement and hope, and when the Fallen and Mestiks saw the Guardians they immediately started to attack. A few now former Lions fought the Guardians while Mestiks and a the rest of the former lions fled to Mestiks's ship where they would fly into space. When the Guardians took down the remaining former Lions they thought about what Mestiks said and traveled Joskaa for answers. As the Guardians and the House of Lions went on a journey hunting down Mestiks's chosen, he spent his time recruiting more members and stealing more money from many places and people including the Spider, and when traveling through bases of the Scorn he found holographic devices specifically used by Pirrha, the Rifleman, he would use these devices to trick the Guardians into thinking that the hologram is actually Mestiks and would go into his maze to try to kill him, and this idea did work, the Guardians did get tricked and ambushed once the finished killing the hologram, and while the Guardian was at Mestiks's maze, Mestiks himself led a large scale attack on the House of Lions and when the Guardians finally got back the damage was already done and Mestiks was gone, though most Lions including Joskaa were able to survive. And when the Guardians went back to Joskaa he gave them the coordinates of where Mestiks is heading and told them that he put a tracker on his ship, and this is where they all realized that Mestiks's luck was running out.
End of the Line
- "Pop goes the Weasel!"
- — The Ghost after the Guardians killing Mestiks
As the Guardians helped the Lions recover, Mestiks traveled to the planet of Venus where he would coordinate a plan to stop both the House of Lions and the Guardians, though since Mestiks is being tracked down he doesn't have that much time to waste since the Guardians will be there any moment to either end Mestiks's life or bring him back to the House of Lions. As Mestiks finished with his coordination plan, the Guardians found his location. To distract the Guardians from getting him, he sent out his last two Chosen Commanders, they put up a great fight against the Guardians, but they were of course unsuccessful, Mestiks ran into his bunker which was designed like a borrow, The Guardians chased after Mestiks as he slides through his borrow until ends up at dead end. This was the time where Mestiks realized that he can't keep running, he needed to fight, Mestiks fought like never before, using all sorts of weapons like guns, knives, bombs, and even brought down some of his Gang members for backup =, but no matter what he did he was unsuccessful and the Guardians at last killed him.
