Clan Wolf Overview
Clan Wolf (from 3142 the Wolf Empire) was not only one of the original twenty Clans founded by Nicholas Kerensky, but was also given the distinct honor of carrying forth Kerensky's name and his genetic legacy. This status as caretaker of the Kerensky Bloodname also served as a source of conflict with other Clans, especially Clan Jade Falcon, which felt slighted by the ilKhan's decision. Named for the massive wolves of Strana Mechty, which grow to nearly twice the size of their ancestors on Terra, the Wolf Clan has been a dominant force in the Clans since its inception. Responsible for the Annihilation of Clan Wolverine and the Absorption of Clan Widowmaker, Clan Wolf was also instrumental in the development of Battle Armor. The leader of the Warden faction in the Grand Council, the Clan was nevertheless forced to participate in the Clan Invasion of the Inner Sphere, where they proceeded to outshine all other Clans in the number of worlds conquered. Clan Wolf was nearly destroyed by its hated enemy the Jade Falcons in the Refusal War that followed, but although the Clan survived it was split in two: a Crusader-minded Clan Wolf and Warden-minded Clan Wolf-in-Exile.
In the years that followed this divide Clan Wolf rebuilt its strength, but suffered severely during the Word of Blake Jihad even as it was forced from the Clan Homeworlds and Clan Hell's Horses carved out its own Occupation Zone from the Wolves' coreward territory. Two generations of relative peace allowed Clan Wolf to recover from these setbacks, so that when the Blackout set off a new round of wars and chaos the Clan was able to carry off a mass migration from their Occupation Zone deep into the Inner Sphere. Clan Wolf conquered over sixty worlds from the revived Free Worlds League and the Lyran Commonwealth before proclaiming itself reborn as the Wolf Empire on 1 January 3142. By 3145 the Wolf Empire was poised to strike into the Republic of the Sphere's remaining territory in an effort to seize Terra itself.
