Mandalore was the homeworld of the Mandalorian culture and people, which possessed a long and wartorn history. It was Sabine Wren's homeworld and the site of an Imperial Academy where she briefly trained.

History

For centuries the people of Mandalore have had a warrior culture, warring amongst themselves and with enemies such as the Jedi Order. During the Clone Wars, it was ruled over by the pacifistic Duchess Satine Kryze, until her death at the hands of the fallen Sith Lord, Darth Maul. Maul briefly ruled over the planet after seizing it with the help of the Death Watch, only to be deposed by Darth Sidious. It was subsequently drawn into the conflict, with the Siege of Mandalore being the last battle in which Captain Rex, Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan Kryze fought together.

Since the Clone Wars, Mandalore has been under the rule of the Galactic Empire, with an academy being established there to train Mandalorian recruits such as Sabine and Ketsu Onyo. However, there are also a number of Mandalorian colonies and outposts scattered through the galaxy, with one of the more notorious ones being Concord Dawn, whose Protectors have long been enemies of the Death Watch. The Protectors were later slaughtered by the Imperial Super Commandos under Imperial Viceroy Gar Saxon, with only their leader Fenn Rau surviving to join the Rebellion. Rau later persuaded fellow Mandalorian rebel Sabine Wren to take up the Darksaber, an artifact of the Mandalorians, in an effort to unite the Mandalorians against the Empire. An ensuing confrontation between Clan Wren, several rebels, and the Super Commandos resulted in Saxon's death, which Fenn Rau feared would lead to civil war.

Culture

The Mandalorians have long been a race of warriors with proud traditions, from forging their distinctive armors to embracing a warrior's code that includes the right to issue a challenge for single combat to the death. Mandalorian armor is occasionally stolen and worn by bounty hunters, a fact that disgusts true Mandalorians.

The political structure of Mandalore resembles a pyramid, with the Protectors serving Mandalore's ruler while the people of Mandalore are divided into Houses and their allied Clans-i.e. Clan Wren is allied with House Vizsla. Mandalore fell to the Republic shortly before it became the Empire, and the Empire chose to select a political figurehead to rule rather than impose its will on Mandalore through armed occupation. This is a result of Mandalore's fairly expansive influence over numerous systems, and well as the powerful military force it has built up. [1]
