23rd Wolf Garrison (Clan Wolf)
|Twenty-third Wolf Garrison Cluster|
|Unit Profile (as of 3145)|
|Parent Formation||Theta Galaxy|
|Formed||Late Dark Age|
After the formation of the Wolf Empire in the early 3140s a number of garrison Galaxies were recruited from the former Lyran and Free Worlds population. Some of the Galaxies were new, whilst others were reactivated older formations. The Twenty-third Wolf Garrison Cluster was formed as a part of Theta Galaxy, one of the reactivated Galaxies. By 3145, it was also the most successful.
The personnel who joined the Twenty-third were motivated by Clan recruiters calling for Clan Wolf and the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth to strike back at House Steiner for the Lyran "betrayal", and the new Clusters were equipped initially with equipment taken from a mix of Lyran and Marik-Stewart salvage and the conventional forces other Wolf forces were discarding. The Twenty-third hadn't finished forming and training in time to join the invasion of the Commonwealth, but the entire of Theta was deployed as a reserve force for the invasion of the Republic Remnant. Deployed to the Kalidasa and Solaris systems, the Twenty-third and the other Clusters within Theta took the opportunity to upgrade their forces with 'Mechs and battle armor Trinaries, passing their armored vehicles back to other units.
As of 3145 the Twenty-third was one of the Clusters keen to recapture lost League worlds close to the borders of the Republic of the Sphere, and were considered a good example of the benefits of working with the ruling Wolves.
