The MacAllisters are a relatively small Clan (ca. 15.000 warriors).
It is also the youngest of the Frother Clans, dating back only 300
years. Because of this, the MacAllister Clan is not as deeply rooted
in Frother tradition as, say, the Dougals or the McDuffs and does
not place as much emphasis on duels, honor, drinking contests and
the like. Many of the more traditionals Frothers consider the MacAllisters
to be without honor and detest their businesslike attitude.
The McAllisters do not focus solely on combat and warfare.
Instead their primary interest is the various combat and recreational
drugs on the market. The MacAllister's Head of the Executive Board
Thadeusz Thraal Jr., has reiterated that the key to the development
of the Clan is drugs. Thus, one of the MacAllisters main fields
of activity is the drug market. The Clan is rumored to have its
own facilities for testing and designing a variety of narcotics.
Especially among Frothers it is well known that every MacAllister
is a potential drug peddler.
While it is no secret that Karma favors the MacAllister
Clan when it comes to testing new substances, SLA Industries has
never officially contracted the MacAllister to do their own research,
let alone distribute narcotics on the open market. Some late observers
have wondered why the company has not crushed down hard on the Clan
for their activities, because in essence they can be considered
an illegal soft company. One can only speculate whether the company
has made an informal deal with the MacAllisters or whether it simply
considers the Clan's activities to be valuable in some other way.
