The Bolt Guard is a team of Black Hole COs led by Von Bolt that took leadership of the nation sometime after the death of previous Black Hole leader, Sturm. They serve as the main antagonist of the game, Advance Wars: Dual Strike.
They all answer directly to Von Bolt and, in addition to being COs, also act as his bodyguards.
After taking control of Black Hole, the Bolt Guard led an invasion of the continent of Omega Land to deplete its energy so their leader, Von Bolt could gain immortality.
When Hawke discovered Von Bolt's true identity, the Bolt Guard sent Oozium-238s after him and Lash. Von Bolt was eventually killed, though it is unknown what the fates of the other Bolt Guard members were.
