Iron Guard is a team appearing in the Unreal series.

Team overview[]

Iron Guard is one of the most popular teams in the history of the Tournament. Led by Brock and his energetic sweetheart Lauren, this team has garnered intensive fame and support from fans across the galaxy. Thunder Crash, led by multi-time champion Malcolm, is considered as their most formidable rival team.

Jihan Nyhn was a powerful arms smuggler, though further information about him remains unknown. He mostly served for the background story of the Iron Guard in UT. He was known to be a supporter of guerillas fighting NEG oppression on other planets. Because of his dangerous line of work, he hired a team of personal bodyguards. This however, did not 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, who was reported to be Jihan Nyhn's lover at the time, suspected the Liandri Mining Corporation to be behind his death. She joined 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 that Lauren was in fact involved with Brock since high school, suggesting the rumor of her relationship with Nyhn to be apparently incorrect. By this time Nyhn seems all but forgotten, and exactly how he was assassinated, and by whom, remains unclear.

The namesake team in ¨Unreal Tournament 2003, like many teams, is Iron Guard in name only, as it's just a random team of bots.
