Welcome home, Clan Wolf.

This sub-forum is to be treated like any other faction sub-forum.
Please keep your topics faction specific.
The old Clan forum has been renamed to "The Pentagon Worlds" and will serve as a place for generic clan discussion. If you have a thread you would like moved to Clan Wolf, please report it and identify the forum you would like your thread moved to and our Moderation team will be happy to assist you as soon as possible!

May this be your home to prepare for the upcoming Operation Revival.

Clan Wolf



Posted Image


History

Clan Wolf was founded by Jerome Winson, brother-in-law of the the Founder of all clans, Nicholas Kerensky in 2807, who also became a member of this Clan. The chosen Clan of Kerensky, the Wolves had been a dominant force in the Clans since their beginning. Kerensky named the Clan after the Strana Mechty wolf, the creature he saw as the ultimate warrior. Following Operation Klondike, Kerensky honoured his promise to the Clans, granting his blood legacy and leadership to the warriors who had performed above their peers during the campaign to retake the Pentagon Worlds. In an action that enraged Clan Jade Falcon, and Clan Smoke Jaguar, both of which believed they had earned Kerensky's patronage, ilKhan Nicholas Kerensky joined the Wolves. Kerensky's patronage placed the Wolves at the forefront of the Clans, at the expense of creating the first real rift in the Grand Council. The Wolves have staunchly defended the Kerensky Bloodname ever since, despite numerous attempts by other Clans to take it by force.

Clan Wolf proved themselves expert warriors: they annihilated Clan Wolverine and absorbed Clan Widowmaker, long before their successes in the invasion of the Inner Sphere. They also created Elemental body armor, though it would take assistance from Clan Hell's Horses to perfect the Elemental phenotype and HarJel from the Diamond Sharks before Elemental suits reached their current form. They led the Warden Clans in the Grand Council and were the only Clan to oppose the Clan Invasion in 3050. Clan Wolf proposed sending a reconnaissance force to gather intelligence before the Invasion, a force that eventually became known as the Wolf's Dragoons, arguably the best mercenary unit in the Inner Sphere, and crucial in stopping the Clan's invasion.

Invasion corridor - Clan Smoke Jaguar

Although they lost a Trial of Refusal against the motion to invade the Inner Sphere and were selected for the invasion force as punishment for voting against the pro-invasion majority, the Wolves decided to beat the Crusaders at their own game. They participated in it nonetheless and soon outdid all other Clans in seizing more worlds and at a faster pace than any other Clan. Their holdings were mostly taken from the Free Rasalhague Republic and the Lyran half of the Federated Commonwealth. Their capture of Rasalhague cemented their leadership in the Invasion and the Wolf Khan, Ulric Kerensky, became the leader of the Clans, an ilKhan, after their successes (and the death in battle of the previous ilKhan, Leo Showers). Ulric negotiated with Precentor Martial Anastasius Focht of ComStar resulting in the proxy battle for Terra (the Clans' goal) on Tukayyid in 3052. During the Battle of Tukayyid, Clan Wolf was one of only two Clans to prevail against the defending ComStar forces (the other victor being Clan Ghost Bear who were awarded a "marginal" victory). Nevertheless, the Wolves were the ones who helped convince the other clans to adhere to the terms when the Trial was lost, leading to the treaty that halted the invasion with a 15-year truce.

In 3057, Clan Jade Falcon sought to remove Ulric and continue the invasion. When the Council tried Ulric for treason and voted him out of office, Clan Wolf all but destroyed itself in preventing the Jade Falcons from breaking the truce by instigating a Trial of Refusal on a scale never before seen outside of a Trial of Annihilation. This particular Trial of Refusal would be forever referred to as the "Refusal War" against the Jade Falcons.

To ensure the Clan's survival, Ulric ordered Phelan Kell (also known as Phelan Ward) to take a contingent of warriors and a cross-section of the other castes to the Inner Sphere while he and Natasha Kerensky sought to break the Falcons. Eventually, the Falcons were victorious, but they could not touch the part of the clan that left Clan-controlled space and went into self-imposed exile to the Inner Sphere. Ward's Warden Wolves settled on planet Arc-Royal in the Lyran Alliance and guarded the border against any Clan incursions.

An initially successful Jade Falcon attempt to Absorb the remaining Wolves was effectively made moot with the creation of the Clan Jade Wolf, an offshoot of Clan Jade Falcon, made up of captured Wolf warriors who were "absorbed" into the Jade Falcons. The Jade Wolves later changed their name by dropping the "Jade" part and simply going by "Wolf", effectively usurping the name of the original, or pre-Refusal War, Clan Wolf. These Wolves (also known as Crusader Wolves) rebuilt their strength and have declared themselves the only Crusader Clan not bound by the Crusader's defeat during the Great Refusal.

Ever since then, the two halves of what was once a single Wolf Clan have lived separate lives. The Crusader Wolves sought to regain their strength, raiding the Clan Smoke Jaguar. Vlad Ward entered into a short-term alliance with Falcon Khan Marthe Pryde to ensure the survival of both Clans.

As with the original incarnation of Clan Wolf, the Crusader Wolves consider the planet Tamar as their capital. It was the scouring of Tamar that made the Clans realize that they too would come under attack by the Word of Blake and had to fight back. During the Word of Blake Jihad the Wolves leapt across Jade Falcon borders to assist worlds under attack.
During the Trial of Great Refusal, Clan Wolf fought along side of the surviving Smoke Jaguars, gaining a draw against the 1st St. Ives Lancers.


Post-Jihad Era

The Wolves found themselves facing a crisis of confidence in the early 3080s; the Clan needed to make a show of strength to intimidate their neighbours and project an attitude of strength, but the strength of the Wolf touman had been badly reduced by the Jihad. The Wolves had been using a mixture of confidence and skill to avoid challenges that would expose their weakness for almost fifteen years, but the Wolf touman mustered just sixty percent of the strength in 3081 that it had managed to field in 3067, and the Wolf occupation zone was now surrounded by enemies. Actions against Clan Hell's Horses in recent years had gone badly and with the sibko programme decimated the Wolves were forced to accept more freeborn into the touman while stripping second line clusters of OmniMechs and advanced technology to keep the front line clusters in top form.


Society

Clan Wolf is also noted for their lack of formality (another thing that greatly annoys the Falcons). While they respect their traditions, they adapt to the situation, they make up their own mind, and don't rush in and think later - a trait that has proven valuable during their invasion of the Inner Sphere, where Clans found that technological edge and mastery of one on one combat is not always enough to guarantee a win.
Clan Wolf emblem is a red wolf head on top of a red plaque, with six golden stars. The five stars symbolize the clans, and the sixth star symbolizes their founder, Kerensky.

Is there a list of common mechs used by Wolf? This would be my go-to Clan if my current IS posted gets buggered. Which I suspect it will.

Even though the Mad Dog was a slur to Clan Wolf, it was used extensively. I actually favour it in some cases.

The Clan Wolf campaign in Mechwarrior 2 had the best missions I've ever played as a kid. Most of their Trial of Positions were both fair and hardcore (unlike some of the Jade Falcon Trials like the one with the Kit Fox, ugh :) ).
