The Iron Guard is one of the most popular teams in the history of the Tournament. Led by the cool veteran Brock and his energetic sweetheart Lauren, this team has garnered intensive fame and support from fans across the galaxy. The Thunder Crash team of marines, led by multi-champion Malcolm is considered as the fitting rivals for Iron Guard.

Team overview Edit

Jihan Nyhn is a powerful arms smuggler not much is known about, as he mostly functions as a background story for the Iron Guard team in UT. He was known to be a supporter of guerillas fighting NEG oppression on other planets. Because of his line of work, he hired a team of personal bodyguard. This didn't prevent an unknown assassin to kill Nyhn somewhere before 2293, the year of UT.

After Nyhn's assassination, his team of bodyguards was left without a job. To vent their aggression they joined the Liandri Grand Tournament as the "Iron Guard". Lauren, said to be Jihan Nyhn's lover at the time, suspected the Liandri Mining Corporation to be behind his death. She joins the Iron Guard to fight in the Liandri sponsored Tournament, hoping to come close enough to uncover the truth.

By 2302, the year of UT2003, it becomes known Lauren was in fact involved with Brock since high school, suggesting the rumor of her relationship with Nyhn was incorrect. By this time Nyhn seems all but forgotten, and exactly how he was assassinated, and by whom, remains unclear.

Unreal Tournament Edit

"This veteran squad of elite warriors once served as personal bodyguards to the powerful arms smuggler Jihan Nyhn. After Jihan's assassination, the Iron Guard found themselves unemployed and the Tournament was an ideal arena to vent their aggression."

"Brock and Lauren joined forces with Malcolm during his reign as tournament champion. Infighting and recrimination over their stunning defeat in last year's Tournament led to the dissolution of that team. Now, Brock and Lauren have returned leading their old team, the Iron Guard."
