Light Keshik (Clan Wolf)

Light Keshik
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Parent Formation Upsilon Galaxy[1]
Formed Late Dark Age[2]



In common with the other elements of Upsilon Galaxy the Light Keshik was established using units and personnel originally from the Republic of the Sphere, most commonly those worlds around Stewart. While the Keshik's homeworlds had originally been a part of the Free Worlds League prior to the formation of the Republic, the invasion by forces from the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth left the populations with a lingering fear of invasion by outsiders, and it was this fear that Clan Wolf exploited when raising Upsilon Galaxy as a part of the forces of the Wolf Empire.[2]

Clan Wolf offered those who joined Upsilon Galaxy the opportunity to defend themselves where both the Free Worlds League and the Republic failed them, as well as allowing the Keshik to draw on the output of the Corean Enterprises factories in the region, before allowing the Keshik to concentrate its efforts against the forces of the reborn Free Worlds League. Given the proximity of the Clan Protectorate, in 3145 it was considered likely that sooner or later the Keshik would find itself defending against attacks from the Spirit Cats.[2] The Light Keshik was the lead Cluster within Upsilon Galaxy.[1]


The commanding officer in 3145 was Galaxy Commander Robin Cobb.[1]

  • CO: Star Colonel Constance
- At this point in time the Keshik was stationed on Helm and was operating at four-fifths of full strength. Although the Keshik lacked OmniMechs, it was equipped at approximately a Star League level of technology.[1] The Keshik had at least two Supernovas of battle armor within the Cluster.[2]


Game Rules[edit]

Dark Age[edit]

  • When a force from the Light Keshik is being generated the controlling player may generate 2 units per Star including battle armor using the Free Worlds League (Marik-Stewart Commonwealth) Random Assignment Table.[3]
  • When a force from the Light Keshik is being generated the controlling player may re-roll any result on the Star, Binary or Trinary type tables that is not a Nova or Supernova. If the re-roll result is still not a Nova or Supernova, the original roll is used.[3]
