History[edit]

Fourth Wolf Guardians was raised in the early 3060s. It acted as a second line support cluster for other Guardian Clusters.[1] In 3067 the cluster was stationed on Crimond.[2]

In December 3073 the Fourth were stationed on the Lyran world of Bountiful Harvest along with the Second Wolf Strike Grenadiers[3] when the Word of Blake's Fiftieth Shadow Division raided the world. The Second Grenadiers and the Fourth Guardians put up a fierce resistance, forcing the Fiftieth Shadow Division to retreat after taking heavy losses.[4][5]

In 3079 the cluster was on the planet of Crimond.[3]

In 3085 the Fourth was stationed on Morningside and its status had been upgraded to a front line unit.[6]

Officers[edit]

The commanding officer in 3067 was Star Colonel Jeremiah Shaw.[2] In 3085 Star Colonel Aneko had taken command.[6]

Tactics[edit]

The Fourth provided air and infantry support for other clusters in its Galaxy prior to the Jihad.[1]

Notes[edit]

The Cluster is correctly listed as the Fourth Wolf Guardians in Field Manual: 3085. However, in Field Manual: Updates, Field Report: Clans, Jihad Hot Spots: 3076, and Jihad: Final Reckoning they are referred to as Guards. This is an error replicated with all Guardian clusters. The Fourth Guardians highlight this confusion the most when noted alongside Alpha Galaxy's Fourth wolf Guards. Page 22 of Field Report: Clans makes the distinction between the two Clusters very clear, including their roles in the Jihad.
