The Wangdaio Colonies Shouwei Forces were established as a self-defense force when Taianese colonists were sent to systems on the southern edge of the known star map to accomplish several things: to establish new agricultural areas; locate new mineral resources; and get 2nd and 3rd Class citizens (namely tatya hini) away from the core of Empire of Tai Pan.

When the Colonies declared independence in 3008 GSC, they restructured their forces slightly from a guardian role to a standing military force. The Shouwei Forces were stretched thin in their manning and resources to protect their large borders. They increased ship and weapon construction under guidance from Prince Yue Ziyi to help combat the growing piracy problem. The notorious black out in 3010 GSC cast the Shouwei into chaos as their lines of communication were cut. The Prince's private security force and intelligence organization, the Heise, launched an insurgency for control of the colonies and Xenos cut through the thin line of disorganized Shouwei to ravage and pillage unprotected colonists.

Some Shouwei managed to regroup and consolidate their forces to rescue those stranded by the black out by 3015 GSC, Admiral Ember Connelly pulled enough ships together to get a runner through the Heise and Xeno battlelines to get assistance from The Interstellar Alliance and begrudgingly, Empire of Tai Pan to evacuate survivors from Topia and Gavreau.

When the Empire of Tai Pan allowed Duchess Bhelith Blackspear of Kowloon to establish Solarity of Kowloon in 3016 GSC, they gifted her the surviving ships from the Wangdaio Shouwei Forces to form the basis of her self-defense fleet with the 1st Fleet and 2nd Fleet ships forming a large portion of the fleet. All ships that survived the fall were in dire need for maintenance and vessels that were heavily damaged were cannibalized to repair other ships due to the loss of the Shouwei shipyards.

Planetary Forces

Small amount of ground forces to protect the colonies. Mostly deputized colonists to help maintain order.

All Shouwei that survived the ordeals of the black out either got out of the military entirely to cope with the physical and psychological trauma of the ordeal; joined mercenary groups; regrouped to Kowloon System, Kotoku System, and Rarjuni System to wait for the return of Ayana Morita; became pirates; went in search for Ayana or Yue Ziyi; or joined The Interstellar Alliance or Empire of Tai Pan.
