Organized under Catholic Duke Ailish Ludd of Solibris during the Great Confessional War, the Luddite Life Grenadier Guards were a regiment of grenadiers who preformed valiantly in a number of defensive actions. It is the earliest recorded occidental use of a unit specifically designed around the grenade concept. At the time the technology was so dangerous that the concept took another 150 years to catch on in most armies.
