The 12th Ghost regiment was formed to keep the 11th Ghost regiment under control. The 11th Ghost, though generally loyal to the Combine, might engage in irresponsible behavior that would lead to trouble. By placing the 12th Ghost on the same world, the DCMS High Command hoped that the 11th would focus on their common enemy rather than cause trouble.[1]

Ronin Wars[edit]

War of 3039[edit]


The unit was created recently and have their first chance to prove their worth to the Dragon during the counter attack of the DCMS. Teaming up with its sister unit, the 11th Ghost, the command were welcomed as liberators by the local citizens. The AFFS unit used the time to start a counter assault at the position of the 12th Ghost. The unit tried to link up with the other command but failed. The fight in the city cost many civilian lives and saw the destruction of entire streets. The situation turned worse when the second AFFS command enter the fighting to. The city population took arms against the invaders and forced the AFFS from the world. [2]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Dominion War[edit]

The 12th was on Numki briefly, skirmishing with both the 11th Ghost and the Ghost Bear forces.[3]

Federated Suns Incursion[edit]

The 12th assisted other DCMS forces in retaking Al Na'ir[4], and stayed on world as the garrison force.[5]


The 12th was the DCMS unit assigned to attack Cassias. Once they landed they got into a brutal fight against the garrison unit defending the planet: the 12th Deneb Light Cavalry. The Nordique-Exxor chemical processing plant was leveled outside of Jubalis in the fierce combat, sending a cloud of toxic fumes into the atmosphere that forced the evacuation of three nearby metropolitan areas. The last report from the system on 17 September 3068 showed that Cassian airspace remained contested, with most of the commercial traffic still grounded. After the incident, fighting was sparse on the ground, with rumors that the 12th Ghost were in retreat across the Blacklick continent. The 12th Ghost left the planet after that action.[6]

The 12th Ghost regiment was on An Ting when the first survivors of the Snow Raven attack on Galedon V arrived in 3070. These refugees carried the remnants of the biological weapon used on Galedon with them and promptly infected the world. The DCMS High Command placed the world under quarantine, and the 12th Ghost spent the next decade enforcing that quarantine. Since the members of the unit were likely infected by the "Curse of Galedon", it was unlikely that any member of the 12th ever left the world.[7]

While on An Ting, the 12th Ghost gave up their DropShips to civilians that were able to escape the planet, willingly consigning themselves to a slow death. It was speculated that the actions of the 12th, more than anything else, justified the continuation of the surviving Ghost formations. As a mark of respect, while the 12th no longer existed after the Jihad[8], it remained on the rolls of the DCMS as an example to other units of the DCMS.[9]
