History[edit]

Formation[edit]

The Eighth Wolf Cavalry Cluster was one of the second-line Clan Wolf Clusters to be founded between 3090 and 3130. Kappa Galaxy underwent an expansion between the 3090s and 3130 after decades of being used as a training formation by the Rasalhague Dominion and developing a reputation for the devious use of conventional forces because of the shortage of BattleMechs within Kappa. Assigned to garrison duties during Operation HAMMERFALL, the creation of the Wolf Empire led to the need to form new garrison Galaxies, and the Eighth and the other units of Kappa were again subject to a winnowing out of 'Mechs and warriors as it was felt that their personnel would be ideal for managing the honorless Spheroid personnel being incorporated into the new formations.[2]

By 3145 the Eighth and the other elements of Kappa were operating at barely above half-strength as a result of the loss of personnel and equipment, but the peace treaty between the reborn Free Worlds League and the Wolf Empire meant that it was unlikely they would be called upon to deal with a major conflict.[2]
