History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The First Rasalhague Bears were formed by Clan Ghost Bear within their Alpha Galaxy to highlight cooperation between the Ghost Bears and the native Rasalhagian population of the conquered worlds of the Ghost Bear Occupation Zone. In early 3061, despite being the most recently-formed unit in the touman, the First contained at least one former KungsArmé soldier in each Star, with those soldiers having been claimed as isorla and subsequently regained their warrior status.[1]

First Draconis Combine-Dominion War[edit]

The First Combine-Dominion War erupted following an attack on Alshain by rogue elements of the Alshain Avengers brigade of the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery in 3062,[2] and as expected Alpha Galaxy played a prominant part in the Ghost Bear's retaliation against the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery.[3] Star Colonel Ragnar - formerly Ragnar Magnusson, son of Haakon Magnusson, the first prince of the Free Rasalhague Republic - and the First Rasalhague Bears acted in what the Ghost Bears considered to be a noble fashion when they repulsed a raid by the Free Rasalhague Republic, and as a reward Ragnar and his Cluster were given a prominent role when the Ghost Bears responded to the opportunistic invasion of the Ghost Bear Occupation Zone by Clan Hell's Horses[3] in 3063.[4]

The Hell's Horses were acting at the urging of the Khan of Clan Wolf, Vladimir Ward,[2] and the Ghost Bears responded with their own counterattack; a number of worlds were targeted in particular, one of which was the world of Rasalhague, a world of particular significant to the native population of the former Free Rasalhague Republic. Alpha Galaxy deployed the First Rasalhague Bears, the Fiftieth Striker Cluster[3] and the 283rd Battle Cluster[5] to capture Rasalhague, an act that was well-received by the Rasalhagian natives within the Ghost Bear Occupation Zone.[3] All three Clusters took damage from the defending Second Wolf Lancers and elements of Omega Galaxy, but the Wolf Lancers were reduced to tatters by the time they finally retreated in the face of the Ghost Bear's determined assault.[6]

During the Combine-Ghost Bear War, the 1st Rasalhague Bears conduct a reprisal raid against Clan Hell's Horses' occupation zone for its raid of Predlitz. The Bears and the Fiftieth Strike Cluster struck Occupational zone in 3063 after the war's conclusion. The Bears among worlds, such as Gunzburg where it was Star Colonel Ragnar attend ceremony of planet with old planet leader, Tor Miraborg celebrate world returning back Rasalhagian fold (under Ghost Bear leadership) a year later.[7]
