Founding of the StrongholdEdit
After the Waterborne Holocaust began, John Waterborne managed to gather around 100 Waterbornes and 50 mercenaries to escape District 4. They fought their way out of District 4, and stole several Capitol vehicles, following the sun to the unknown west.
John and his gathering travelel for five days, reaching a dry desert mountain. He decided that this would be the best place to restart the family, and soon a stronghold was built.
War of the WaterbornesEdit
After the War of the Waterbornes began in late 703 ADD, the Northern Arizona Stronghold unified with surrounding strongholds, forming the UWS. Being one of the bigger strongholds, it held importance in the Western Theater of the war.
The war reached the stronghold, when around a thousand soldiers of the Cobalt Wolves sieged the stronghold. Do to it's location on a spiraling mountain, the outnumbered Waterbornes were able to defend their stronghold, standing strong against the attacking Capitol.
The stronghold managed to fend off the invaders long enough for reinforcements from the closest stronghold, the Southern Utah Stronghold, to arrive. Sandwiched between the Utah and Arizona forces, the Cobalt Wolves quickly retreated to Dawes Creek, where the bloodiest battle to that point occured.
After their victory, several of the veteran combatants joined the ranks of the UWS Armed Forces, an attempt to bolster up enough numbers to take on the capitol.
As the name suggests, the stronghold was located in Northern Arizona, near the border of Utah, allowing an easy connection with the neighboring Southern Utah stronghold.
What was interesting about the stronghold was it's location on a spiral mountain, which acted as a watch tower over the surrounding desert.
