Removed Update Needed JHS[edit]

I removed the Update Needed Jihad Hot Spots: Terra tag because searching the PDF for "103", "103rd", and "Third" returned no results.--Mbear 19:55, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Actually NO Com Guard divisions are named in it, only Armies. Earlier sources indicate 103rd was part of the First Army which was mentioned in it, assuming it survives and isn't merged into the 79th. Cyc 20:54, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

The Black Thorns[edit]

Supposedly, Jeremiah Rose was a member of the 103rd Division, where he fought the Jaguars and Wolves on Tukayyid. This doesn't match the other material, though. Any thoughts? ClanWolverine101 (talk) 21:18, 2 April 2013 (PDT)

I'd be surprised if somebody hadn't noticed this and asked the writers on a previous iteration of the forums. Unfortunately, those are gone now. I haven't read the novels, but, from the scenario book, it seems possible that Rose and his Level II were detached from the 103rd. --Scaletail (talk) 15:50, 3 April 2013 (PDT)
That Rose is from the 103rd comes only from the scenario pack, neither of the novels name which division he was in. While the 1st Army only faced the Ghost Bears, the 103rd is likely the best match to cover Rose's claim he was stationed on Luthien. Main Event does specifically mention they detached from their armor element for service elsewhere during Tukayyid.Cyc (talk) 16:06, 3 April 2013 (PDT)
I just pulled out Main Event to reconfirm and noticed that when facing the Wolves Rose speaks to Central, and is told by a Precentor Lucarca to hold the line. Its likely that Precentor Lucarca is Katherine Lucarca, CO of the 1st Army and one of the few ComStar peeps name-checked in Lost Destiny. Cyc (talk) 16:10, 3 April 2013 (PDT)
Which is even weirder. The First Army wasn't supposed to have fought the Wolves. That's from reading Lost Destiny and the WCS. ClanWolverine101 (talk) 20:25, 3 April 2013 (PDT)
