The unit first appeared to the public in [[3068]], though not in its entirety. It was not until Precentor Apollyon was given sovereignty of the late Sir [[Paul Masters|Paul Masters']] world of [[Gibson]] by the Word of Blake influenced member of the Marik government, [[Paul Marik (31st c.)|Paul Marik]].

When the entire ''Apollyon's Chosen'' arrived on planet, they begun to put down any resistance against Precentor Apollyon ruthlessly. The Division's actions led to the world being converted to a principle stronghold for the Word of Blake and Manei Domini. Refuge camps sprang up across the globe outside the surviving cities on Gibson, where intelligence reports suspected Apollyon was using citizens of the planet as raw-materials to make a next generation of his expendable cybernetic warriors.

Within a month, the 52nd Shadow had once again mobilized and struck [[Caledonia]] together with elements of the [[40th Shadow Division]]. They eradicated the [[22nd Skye Rangers]], whom were preparing to invade the Blake held factory world of [[Hesperus II]]. During this fight, the 52nd received heavy damage and casualties.  However, despite this setback, the Division was still on the move, conducting the last part of its almost 12 month long campaign. In February of [[3074]], the Division struck [[Bolan]], where it destroyed the 2nd Regiment of [[Brion's Legion]]. After destroying the mercenary regiment, the Chosen destroyed the capital city of the planet, sending the Lyran region into chaos.<ref name="JHS3076p48">''Jihad Hot Spots: 3076'', p. 48, "Timeline of the Jihad"</ref><ref name="J:FRp52">''Jihad: Final Reckoning'', p. 52, "The Jihad In Review"</ref>  Afterward, the Division returned to Gibson where it once again arrived in time to assist the 49th Shadow Division to repulse yet another Regulan raid.  By 3075, intelligence reports indicated that Division has returned to full strength.

===Destruction===
 
The 52nd Shadow died during the [[Principality of Regulus]] assault on [[Gibson]] in [[3079]]. The Regulans subjected Gibson to an extended nuclear bombardment from orbit before dispatching forces to the remaining irradiated wasteland to ferret out and destroy any surviving Blakist forces, particularly ''Manei Domini'' forces.<ref name="J:FRp125">''Jihad: Final Reckoning'', p. 125, "Shadow Divisions"</ref>
