Jihan Nyhn

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.

Nyhn also owned the Mojo][ arena as the personal training ground for his bodyguards.

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.

Other Characters

Note: May not be part of Iron Guard.

Nikki

Nikki
Lauren-ut1.jpg
Race: Human
Classification: Civilian
Appearances:


Occasionally, rich civilians are able to buy their way into the Tournament. The Liandri Rules Board doesn't like to include 'normal' civilians in the games because, frankly, they aren't good enough to be entertaining.
In three upset victories last week, Nikki proved that rich civilians can, in fact, be successful in the Tournament. She has learned a lot very quickly and has returned to show you some new tricks.

In the second match, Nikki's favorite weapon is the Sniper Rifle.

Xoleras

Xoleras
Harlin-ut1.jpg
Race: Human
Classification: Executioner
Appearances:


A former Greek mob executioner on 'extended leave' from his 'family business', Xoleras has a reputation of completely and utterly dominating his opponents. A master of thin ledges and with vision of an eagle, he rarely misses an opportunity to blank an unskilled opponent.

Xoleras's favorite weapon is the Pulse Gun.

Unreal Tournament 2003/2004/UC

Somewhat more rugged than their earthly counterparts, the Mercs of the 7th Fleet suffer from none of the vulnerabilities that make their opponents easier targets.
UC website
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.
Unreal Tournament 2004

The only original members in the 2303 incarnation of the team are Brock and Lauren. The rest of the team consists of mercenaries from the 2302 tournament, not connected to Jihan Nyhn.

Fierce, loyal, and technically capable. Her frame may be slim but she has the most incredible reflexes.

BlackJack
Blackjack.jpg
Real Name Sylvia Russel
Race Mercenary
Born: 2277
Corporate Affiliation: None
Weapon Preference: Lightning Gun
Appearances:


Don't let those pretty eyes fool you. She's hard as steel, and holds her own in the arena better than most men. As a scout for Merc raiding parties she earned a reputation for dependability and courage while she was still a kid. But then nobody's really a kid anymore. They took that away too.

Satin

Satin

Real Name Julie Warkworth
Race Mercenary
Born: 2279
Corporate Affiliation: None
Weapon Preference: Shock Rifle
Appearances:


It was only two years ago that an Imperial Dreadnought captured her clan's vessel and brought its human cargo to the slave docks of Briggan IV. The dock master thought her a pretty one and kept her for himself but his unwanted attentions earned him a crushed larynx and a swift visit to the light at the end of the tunnel. Overseer Driak, who had always despised the dockmaster, took an instant liking to the girl and trained her for the Tournaments, where she has been ever since.

Wraith

Wraith
Wraith.jpg
Real Name Aaron Bishop
Race Mercenary
Born: 2276
Corporate Affiliation: None
Weapon Preference: Rocket Launcher
Appearances:


A participant in the Tournaments since the age of 19, Wraith has taken part in some of the most savage battles fought on the arena floor. Considering his long history of combat, and the injuries he has incurred, it begs the question of which may be more scarred: His body or his mind.

Torch

Torch
Torch.jpg
Real Name Maynard Lacroix
Race Mercenary
Born: 2275
Corporate Affiliation: None
Weapon Preference: No preference
Appearances:


He's not much for talking, but when you need to give orders you don't want to be yelling over your men. If there's a point to be made, Torch prefers to make it with raw firepower.

Romulus

Romulus
Romulus.jpg
Real Name Stephen Cassidy
Race Mercenary
Born: 2277
Corporate Affiliation: None
Weapon Preference: Flak Cannon
Appearances:


Supported by his twin brother, Romulus has proven that with the right team behind you a good leader can go anywhere. So what if his brother feels a little jealous now and then, and maybe they start taking shots at each other. That's what the cloning tank's for, right?

Remus

Remus
Remus.jpg
Real Name Michael Cassidy
Race Mercenary
Born: 2277
Corporate Affiliation: Unknown
Weapon Preference: Bio Rifle
Appearances:


Being a twin in the Tournaments isn't so bad, as long as you're on the same side. If you think it's hard to have to face a brother in the arena try it when he's also got your face. One thing makes it easier though. He's a real jackass.

Other characters

Note: Originally in Metal Guard, but probably switched teams since UT2004.

Trivia

  • jihan is the code that unlocks Ariel in Unreal Tournament 3.
  • In the Playstation 2 version of Unreal Tournament it's stated that Jihan Nyhn had bought several places to be used for the Guards training, such as the one of DM-Mojo][.
  • In Unreal Tournament 2004, albeit totally reformed, the team is the only returning team from the first Tournament game aside of Thunder Crash and Iron Skull. They also return in Unreal Tournament 3 alongside the Necris Black Legion.
  • In UT2004 Single Player mode, Wraith also belongs to the alternate Mercenary team, Super Nova. He is the only character in the game belonging to two different teams. If you hire him as part of your team, he will take on an alternate name if you happen to face the Iron Guard or Super Nova teams.
  • Romulus and Remus may be named after the traditional founders of Rome.
