Unit Description
The Black Wolf Rangers was formed on 1st Nov 3079 by the unification of a small group of dissatisfied Taurian Concordat soldiers Led by Captain James Black, and the remnants of a small ‘down-on-their-luck’ mercenary unit brought together by Lt Cheryl Wolfe. Cpt Black along with a few close members of his former unit, fed up with the political manoeuvring and Anti-Davion propaganda in the Taurian Concordat, set forth to create a mercenary command that they could control ‘who’ they fought for ‘when’ and ‘why’. While travelling to Terra the two groups led by Black and Wolfe agreed to form the BWR.

Organized into a uniquely named Latin/Wolf unit and rank structure, the Ranger’s became well known for their Pack-like tactics and strategies. Adept at hit and run tactics, ambushes and deep recon, the BWR has served all Inner Sphere Realms save the Draconis Combine. Awarded the planet of Cimeron by the Federated Suns, the BWR stands ready to repulse the dragon in the spin-ward section of the Draconis March.

Special training on Cimeron has begun at the New Academy of Military Studies near the Units mountain stronghold ‘The Fang’. Multiple venues of military arts can be studied but concentrates on the mech warrior, Armour and infantry lines. Aerospace fighter studies as well as specialized avenues such as artillery and engineer training is conducted as well.

The Black Wolf Rangers have grown to a full Division of combined arms force. Consisting of one Mercenary Regimental Combat Team of one regiment each of mech, Armour and Battle Armour, 5 Rapid Expeditionary Forces (REF's) Combined arms Regiments created for rapid deployments and self sustaining support. The Cimeron Defence Force that defends their home world, is a large contingent having a mech Regiment 3 armour regiments and 7 Infantry Regiments along with Two Aerospace wings and a convnentional Fighter wing.

Unit Description
Formed in early 3097 on the planet Astrokaszy, Conway's Rangers are a small, combined-arms company made up of former Colonial Marshals, disgraced Mechwarriors, SWAT officers, planetary militia, bounty hunters, and reformed pirates. Their mission specializations include assassination, reconnaissance, and pirate hunting.

The unit is comprised of a single, highly-mobile Mech lance equipped with advanced electronic warfare equipment, supported by heavy armor, infantry, gunships, and command support. The Rangers are designed to be completely self-sufficient, minus JumpShip support.

The Rangers are organized around an informal command structure and a common goal - to rid the galaxy of brigands and tyrants, one smoking crater at a time.

Unit Description

Not all mercenary units are created equal.

In 3077, Dwayne Bishop, a former Outworlds Alliance officer turned treasure hunter returned from a supposedly fruitless LosTech search in the Periphery. Rumors persisted he'd found something however and a short time later he acquired a rundown dropship, the Huntress and filled it with a company of outdated mechs. Formed around the core of his treasure hunters, the Deuces Wild were soon taking small time contracts in the Periphery.

After a few low key contracts the Deuces first came to the spotlight while working for the Capellan Confederation. In a series of pitched battles, the outnumbered mercenaries defended the world of Ward from an incursion by the Taurian Concordat.

In the aftermath of the victory however, commander Bishop was hospitalized with a rare and difficult to treat illness. He was sidelined for nearly a full year, during which time the Deuces returned to obscurity in the Periphery.

Bishop’s return signaled a change in the small time, hard luck unit. In the past few years, the Deuces Wild, nicknamed the ‘Periphery Bad Boys’ and the ‘Fortunate Sons’, have fought for or against every major house in the Inner Sphere. They again gained notice during the fierce campaign on Ares, where they recaptured the world for the Federated Suns.

Never the most glamorous nor best equipped unit, the Deuces Wild gained a reputation as a haven for those with a questionable past. Always rough and tumble, usually just shy of bankrupt, they persisted through a combination of skill on the battlefield, ingenious salvaging and tech work and creative, if not always legal, side jobs.

The renegade reputation of the battalion was further reinforced in the wake of the Department of Mercenary Management's dissolution. DJ and his battalion opted to not join the new Mercenary Review and Bonding Commission, truly operating as independent agents until their retirement in 3090.

It seemed the days of the battalion were over and most of the unit settled down or signed on with other commands.

Then came a bombing in Merope that claimed left DJ missing and presumed dead. Jason Tian, former lancemate to DJ, called what elements of the unit he could find and launched a rescue mission, dropping two lances of mechs onto a world moments from open rebellion.

By the time the mercenaries were ordered from the world, the insurrection was all but crushed and DJ was found. Though he'd survived and even fought during the incident in Merope, DJ opted to turn the mercenary unit over to Jason, promoting him to Major.

Now under new management, the Deuces Wild are back in action. Already a new generation of scoundrels and rogues with hearts of gold have signed on, ready to live down to the reputation DJ and his treasure hunters set twenty years ago.

The unit makes use of predominately older equipment, which is easier to maintain, scattered with a handful of upgraded machines. They have a small tech crew, but most of the maintenance is performed by the pilots and troopers themselves. The majority of mechs are jump capable, making the Deuces a highly mobile force.

Unit Description
Few units, Clan or Inner Sphere, have attained the level of recognition the 12th Bear Guards have in the past ten years.

Starting as an experiment by Kahn Sarah Vishio, the Growling Bears, initially only a Trinary in size, was meant to be a quick reaction force to deal with any threats along the Dominion's borders. Comprising both Trueborn and Freeborn warriors under the command of a young Ristar Star Captain named Cade, the unit also served as a rallying point to help unify Clan Ghost Bear and Rasalhague populations behind a single unit.

To call the experiment a success would be the equivalent of calling the the Succession Wars a mild altercation.

Since their inception, the Growling Bears have been on the cutting edge of the Dominions conflicts. They've fought Trials against Clan Wolf and Clan Jade Falcon, dealt with the radical Frihet rebels, led the liberation of Rasalhague, and formed the spearhead of the Star Bridge War.

Today, Cade still commands the Growling Bears, now officially the 12th Bear Guards Cluster. Now a bloodnamed Star Colonel, Cade MacKenzie's Growling Bears is one of the best trained and best equipped units in the Rasalhague Dominion Touman.

The Guards make use of a highly mobile combined arms approach to combat. A number of stars deploy as Novas and Elementals train extensively with their Mechwarrior counterparts, both augmented and not.

The 173rd Battle Trinary and 181st Striker Trinary use predominantly Omnimechs. The 101st Assault Trinary makes use of a mix of Omni and standard designs.

Air cover is provided by the 17th Pursuit Binary in a mix of medium and heavy omnifighters.

Now with over four battalions of Military Hardware, a full aerospace wing, a DropShip Fleet, a Naval Flotilla, and a WarShip ready to take on, any Regiment of enemy units had better think twice before going head to head with Razans Ronins in a battle.

Unit Description
Xavier Steele has been the commander of The Restless Souls Mercenary Unit since its inception in 3069. Although plagued by a shortage of 'MechWarriors, he has grown the unit into a full strenth Division with combined arms of tanks, infantry, VTOLs, Battle Armor, AeroSpace Fighters, BattleMechs as well as 'WarShips. The only unit to have its own JumpShip transportation. Some at the MRBC have suggested that he resign due to his getting along in years and allow new blood circulate through the ranks. This is unlikely to happen. Steele considers himself a mentor to all the Souls Colonels and Majors and so will stay on until he thinks one of his Senior Staff is ready to pick up the controls. "After that," as he always says, "I'll consider retirement."

Senior Lieutenant Brandi Rodriguez, the units former-Executive Officer, has turned around the moral of the unit from an all-time low to above average high. This has been attributed to her background, that having been a lowly grunt herself, and her unorthodox style of command. The XO position has hit some hard times. After Brandi redirected her efforts to Battalion Adjutant, Nariko Matsuhita was recalled, however; within four short months she was Court Marshaled. With the serious injury that was sustained by Brandi in combat she was no longer an option for the XO position. Nariko's replacement was Christian Levesque who within a month of becoming the Restless Souls Executive Officer accepted an alternate posting to a Davion Guard Unit. Then came one of the Soul's lieutenants, namely Alex McCray. Alex took the reins of the XO seat and seemed to grab on to it for the long haul. He impressed by the sheer hours he spent every day deep into paperwork or at the controls of his mech. He was the winning ticket, but Lady Luck had something else in store for the Restless Souls and Alex succumbed to a terrible disease that kept him away from his posting for a long time. Without an XO for a long time Steele had to replace Alex with the Chief Logistics Officer, Anakin, an 'adopted' Wolf clanner. Anakin became one of the first clanners to obtain a senior posting in a DMM unit. He 'rejuvenated' the unit with new training programs that were a reminder of the enemy that almost conquered the Inner Sphere years back. He was the XO for over eleven years, but opted out to join to rejoin a Clan unit. The newly promoted Field Marshall turned back to his old friend Alex McCray for yet another replacement.

Each Regiment of the Restless Souls excels in a particular art of warfare. Diablo Regiment, Foxtrot, can defend a piece of property like it was an entire Brigade all by itself, and is considered the Souls' defensive experts. The Assault Regiment, called Sledgehammer, does best on the attack, using its massive size and long range firepower to blast through enemy positions. The Recon Regiment, nicknamed Eagle Eye, is best at raiding and recon. The 'Hunter-Killer' Regiment, Heaven's Fist, is feared around the Inner Sphere for the notorius ability to root out and apprehend high profiled enemy units. The Strike Regiment, Manticore, has mastered the art of long range fire power from behind cover with the resources to bring well over 2,000 long range warheads in on a target in a single salvo. With the increased size to Brigade and then to Division the Regiments have grown in size and in numbers. Their AeroSpace Fighter Support now full Aero Regiments, Iron Falcon, can appear behind enemy lines at will and wreck havoc, even through the most heavily defended strong points. The Restless Souls Vehicle Regiment, commanded by Colonel Jason Fosdick.

The Restless Division consist of two BattleMech Regiments as well as an Infantry Regiment, a VTOL Regiment, a support Regiment, an AeroSpace Fighter Regiment, its DropShip Fleet, and JumpShip Armada, and four WarShips provide the Souls with the independence and staying power they need to stay viable.

With the acquisition of six Landholds, Landgrave of Baxter, Baron of Quentin, and the Duke of Broken Wheel, the Restless Souls now have several places to call home and places where they can leave their dependents and draw upon for new recruits, perform training, garner yearly revenue, and control three Military Hardware Depots across three Landholds. They have constructed the Regina Entrprise Orbital Factory and Shipyard around their primary Landhold, Quentin in the Federated Suns. And have repaired an place at the jumppoints of Quentin and Baxter fully armed Bastion class space stations protected by Caspar MK III System Defense Systems.

The Division as a whole is considered a leader when it comes to defense. The Restless Souls have an uncanny ability to use the terrain and resources around them to their best advantage. Enemies who think a field is empty find themselves shocked when Restless Souls 'Mechs suddenly spring up around them.
