Mandalore was a planet located in the Outer-Rim Territories that was the homeworld of Mandalorians. The Mandalorians were highly fearsome race of warriors. During the days of the Old Republic, the Mandalorians raided the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.

History[]

During the days of the Old Republic, the Mandalorians and the Jedi had their disputes.[1] Many of the warrior race hated the Jedi, though there were a few exceptions, such as Tarre Viszla, who was accepted into the Jedi Order.[2] As warriors, several wars broke out across the planet, killing all wildlife and plant life. During a final civil war, breaking a trend of thousands of years, a group called the New Mandalorians took control of the planet, ousting out the more violent warriors, known as the Death Watch.[1]

During the Clone Wars, the Mandalorians were set on their way of remaining neutral in the war, hoping their newfound pacifism would keep them out of it. However, the Death Watch would get involved, foiling this plan and forcing the New Mandalorians into seeking Republic assistance.[3] Death Watch, with the assistance of an organization called the Shadow Collective, would covertly invade the planet, painting Death Watch to be the heroes of several battles across the planet.[4] However, in an act of betrayal, the leader of the Shadow Collective, former Sith Lord Maul, killed the Death Watch's leader, Pre Viszla, and assumed the role of leader of Mandalore.[4] This split Death Watch into two factions; the Nite Owls and the Shadow Collective super commandos.[4][5]

The New Mandalorians ruler, Duchess Satine Kryze, would also be murdered by Maul, leaving him as the definite ruler of the planet, also known as the Mand'alor.[5][6] With the Nite Owls on the run, they sought the assistance of former Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano, eventually gaining her alliance.[7] With Tano as their ally, they were able to convince Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi to supply troopers for Tano to lead. Kenobi, despite having deep romantic feelings for the Duchess, was skeptical of sending forces to the planet, though eventually conceded.[8] With the 332nd Company under her command, Tano and the Nite Owls retook Mandalore, eventually defeating Maul and capturing him.[9] Once captured, Tano and a majority of the 332nd began their journey toward Coruscant to see that Maul was put before a tribunal, leaving a small detachment of troopers on the planet.[10] With these troopers on the planet, when the declaration of a new order was issued, Mandalore became an Imperial world, with many prisoners of the prior battles being recruited into the Empire.[11]

Despite this, many clone troopers who had grown weary of the wars efforts had deserted to Mandalore, specifically Kyrimorut.[6] The troopers, whom a majority consisted of Clan Skirata, avoided Imperial patrols by ditching their armor for Mandalorian Beskar.[12] Many of the clones were raised as Mandalorian, with certain aspects of Mandalorian culture being implemented in their training, due to their genetic heritage, as Jango Fett, their template, was a Mandalorian.[13] In 1 BBY, many Mandalorians who grew tired of the Empire's rule, retaliated against the Empire, with the assistance of two Jedi, the Mandalorians' prior enemies.[14] Eventually, the united forces of the Nite Owls, Clan Wren, the Protectors, and Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus and Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger, as well as their astromech C1-10P, they liberated Mandalore from Imperial reign.[14]

At some point after their victory, the Empire retaliated against the Mandalorians for their treachery, which resulted in the accumulation of Beskar and the deaths of a majority of Mandalorians, with a few escaping such as Din Djarin, Paz Vizla, and "the Armorer".[15]
