|Twenty First Crimson Guards Cluster|
|Affiliation||Clan Blood Spirit|
|Parent Command||Omicron Provisional Galaxy|
In 3069, the Guards were led by Khan Karianna Schmitt on Albion, capturing several industrial complexes from Clan Star Adder. They then defended these holdings from Adder counter-attack when they held off several assaults between 3070 to 3072 by Adder forces. 
After Eden the Cluster moved to Arcadia and then Albion. On reaching the planet the Cluster made a combat drop straight onto one of the Adder enclaves, which fell quickly.  A week later they moved against a second Adder enclave; here the fighting was more fierce, they took heavy damage from aerospace attacks before the Spirit withdrew and obliterated both Adder enclaves with orbital bombardment.
Their parent Galaxy moved to Tokasha in mid-3074, where they joined with Zeta and Omega Galaxies in an attempt to take control of the entire planet.  Their plans on Tokasha were halted by the arrival of ilKhan Andrews and a Clan Steel Viper task force in September 3074 who declared a Trial of Possession for the entire planet. All three Spirit Galaxies were bid in defense. Initially the Galaxy managed to flank the Viper's Beta Galaxy but was caught in a crushing counter attack by Nu Galaxy the Galaxy was surrounded and reduced to only a handful of warriors who managed to escape during a friendly air strike, but Omicron and the Guards were destroyed as a force.
