History[edit]

The Tiger Sharks were formed from elements with questionable reputation. They escorted merchants and guarded warehouses. Serving for a few years as a Periphery garrison force for the FWL. Acamar Merchants Freedom Guild hired the Tiger Sharks to prevent the Capellan nobility to join the Capellan Confederation. The unit killed several prominent nobles, plundered the planet and leveled several government buildings. The Sharks continued to pick rich contracts from the various faction in the Chaos March over the next decade.[1]

At the start of the Jihad the Tiger Sharks were one of the Word of Blake sponsored mercenary units that attacked Wolf's Dragoons on Outreach.[2]

The result the prizes begin to rise.[1]
