Over a a hundred years ago man began to leave earth and live among the stars. It was a time marked by almost constant conflict with periods of peace in between. It was an age where war was waged through the use of humanoid combat mechs known as mobile suits, and throughout this time of reccuring warfare was another recurring element that seemed to pop up in every era. A single mobile suit, and many modeled after it, that became a symbol of power and heroism: the Gundam. In time though peace was reached, leading to the dismantling of many of the combat based mobile suits. It seemed that the era of mobile suit based combat and the Gundam would go on to be things of the past.
The Jupiter Frontier, the colonies farthest from earth named for the planet they are situated around. Of all the colonies it is the furthest away from earth and as such are able to operate more independantly than the other colony clusters have in the past. Aside from a program where various groups of students or high profile members of certain organizations are exchanged between the two, there tends to be very little interaction between the Jupiter Frontier and Earth. Life there is quite difficult, outside of a ruling Aristocracy everyone's lives are predetermined according to a genetic aptitude test. A concept that would be appauling to many from earth, but also a concept that has allowed them to flourish technologically and function suprisinggly well in spite of the far less abundant resources in comparison to the colonies closer to earth. The ruling aristocracy is not bound by such restrictions, and as such live quite comfortably thanks to the work of the lower class citizens, and govern the colonies as they see fit, believing that the lower class rabble needs to be properly led by a ruling upper class like them. The family with the most power, the Lagrasso family led by Ochoa Lagrasso is a firm believer in this philosophy, even more so than the the others who sometimes sympathize with the lower class citizens, so much so in fact that they believe that they must seize control of the other colonies and earth itself in order to install proper society into each of them. With this goal in mind he has risen to power of the newly christened Jupiter Ascendancy, and backed by the other ruling families has begun massing an invasion army to seize control. With the Earth's and many of the other colonies lacking in defenses it seems inevitable that they will be completely taken by suprise with little more than old museum pieces to defend themselves.
There is only one road block that stands in there way now. A group of intergalactic pirates which utilize mobile suits of their own known as the Crossbone Vangaurd. A group which seemingly came out of nowhere and began assaulting various ships and installations of the Jupiter Ascendancy and stealing whatever they can get their hands of. At it's core is the massive battleship Caladrius, bigger than any of the battleships of the past it posseses an internal mobile suit production facility which produces the Libertad and Vandal class mobile suits as well as maintenance bays in order to maintain, and of course enough room for the living space for the pilots of these machines. But the most iconic symbol of this group is a group of three mobile suits known as the Crossbone Gundams.

Name: Luke Von Nolusson
Alias: Weiss Corvus (Note Vanguard members tend to use aliases)
Mobile Suit (if any): Crossbone Gundam X1
History: Born into illustrious Von Nolusson amily of the Jupiter Ascendancy it is obvious that he had been living a nice comfortable life in the opper colonies in the Jupiter Frontier, giving little thought to the lives of those in the lower castes as all members of the aristocracy had been taught since a young age. It was only through the exchange program with earth did he truly begin to see that the way things worked in the frontier wasnt the way it worked everywhere else. At first he was startled by the more free lifestyle of the citizens within the earth sphere but he soon grew to see the merits of it and how it promoted things like creativity and the arts, giving those worlds a more rich culture that wasnt reserved for just one selected caste of people. He grew to alue the earth and it's people, but when he returned home he kept quiet about those thoughts and behaved as a proper Jovian noble should. After returning from another trip to earth he found that his family and the others in the Aristocracy had been invited to a large gathering hosted by the Lagrasso family where Ochoa Lagrasso announced his plan to spread the a more "proper society" throughout the galaxy, ranting about how he found the things that Luke appreciated about the other colonies and earth to be disgusting and stifling to progress.
While he had stifled his appreciation toward earth for so long, he found himself unable to sit by and watch as this happened. He had to do something to try and stop this and thus he was set on the path to forming the Crossbone Vanguard. Utilizing his connections and resources he built up a group of allies from the earth sphere colonies and dissatisfied members of the lower class of the Jupiter Frontier while he had secretely comissioned the construction of the Caladrius. He went on to begin to meet with his allies to formulate mobile suits design, resulting in the Libertad class, and most importantly the three mobile suits inspired by the heroic machines from Earth's history. With the construction of the Caladrius complete as well as the gundams and allies the stage was set for him to begin his rebellion under the guise of piracy.
While he is considered the leader of the Vanguard, or at least someone with a high rank within the group, he is infact not the captain of the Caladrius as he preferred to take an active role in combat rather than giving orders from the bridge, though he does serve as the first officer of the ship during non combat situations. Since the day of the Vanguard's formation he has gone by the alias of Weiss Corvus as he was fairly sure that using his real name would cause more harm than good for the group, as well as bring up questions of his loyalty toward the non-founding members of the group. Despite the piracy aspect of the Vanguard being mostly a front for a resistance movement he embraces a the stereotypical image of one when on the battlefield, often sticking to the more dramatic looking or theatrical actions in a battle over the practical. Feeling that it gives him a decidely more heroic image to win over more support he wont hesitate to rush in with guns blazing, or sabers swinging in a dramatic fashion or jumping right from the Caladrius onto another ship and directly attacking it.
To further disguise his identity from those on the opposing side he will often wear a mask into battle, just in case he finds himself in a situation where he may have to exit the cockpit such as raids on Jupiter's supply vessels or the kidnapping of a high profile member of the Ascendancy.
