Unit Description[edit]

The First Wolf Legion was a Clan Wolf (in Exile) formation formed from elements of the original Clan Wolf's 279th and 328th Assault Clusters in 3058.[1]

History[edit]

The unit fought against Clan Jade Falcon in the Refusal War. Among others, a Turkina was taken isorla.[citation needed]

During the Jade Falcon incursion of 3064, the unit fought against the Jade Falcon 7th Talon on Blue Hole and defeated them.[2]

Jihad[edit]

During the Jihad, the 1st joined ComStar Precentor Martial Victor Steiner-Davion's allied force to liberate Donegal in 3072. Where they fought the Word of Blake's 18th Division & 50th Shadow Division in a hard struggle to control the planet. The 50th Shadow concentrated on 1st Wolf and its allied ComStar 116th Division. However, Lyran forces managed to damage 18th Division and cause the 50th Shadow withdraw, leading to the liberation of the planet.[3][4]

Dark Age[edit]

When Malvina Hazen attacked Arc-Royal in September 3146, the First Wolf Legion were present on that world. After it became obvious that the Jade Falcons would emerge victorious, the Legion was tasked with fighting a delaying action to buy enough time for the rest of Clan Wolf-in-Exile to escape. Though only three warriors in the unit survived to be taken as bondsmen, they were successful in their final mission.[5] [6]
