The Forward clan was first located in the Arctic Sector and attacked everyone they saw. Once, strong Siniger troops came to the sector and got immediately attacked by the Forward. A war broke out in the frozen sector. After some time, the Forwards were close being reset and hid inside their base, but the Sinigers still got all of them.
That's what was at least believed, though it was discovered to be untrue after the Reformation. The clan's main mechminds made their way through the underground utilities to a hidden sector, the Altitude Sector. There, they developed in full isolation for a long time, due in no small part to the fact that Super closed the entrance to this hideaway. These days, the entrance to this sector is open, and the Forward are considered to be its natives.
This clan is quite powerful in its home sector, and has made some moves to extend their influence to other territories. However, their prolonged isolation has prevented them from having much impact on additional sectors.
This is the same Forward clan that was supposingly destroyed before the events of A.I.M. thus resulting that MONCEBER, who is referred to as the founder can actually only be the leader.
