Main Article: The Mandalorians (The Old Republic Era)

The Mandalorians are not a race, but a movement. They are a society of warriors who embrace a rough, honor-driven, and nomadic lifestyle. Conflict with The Mandalorians is a defining characteristic of the half century that began with The Great Sith War. For The Mandalorians, the period encompsses their movement's greatest triumph and its near-total end.

For centuries, Mandalorian Crusaders roam the galaxy, seeking new battles and challenges. During The Great Sith War, this movement of free agents becomes embroiled in the politics of the galaxy, setting off a chain of events that will include the near-extinction of their own movement.

Sensing an opportunity in the conflict between The Sith and The Old Republic, Mandalore the Indomitable directs his forces against the Empress Teta System, expecting to make an easy conquest. But fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma bests the leader in single combat, an act which has immediate and long-term repercussions. As a term of the duel, the Mandalorian Clans are obliged to swear allegiance to The Sith, joining them in their war against The Old Republic.

Mandalore the Indomitable falls in battle and The Jedi eventually prevail, but for The Mandalorians, the consequences linger long after The Great Sith War ends. Warriors are scattered across the galaxy, endangering the continuation of their traditions. Worse, many warriors are embarrassed and feel betrayed. Uninterested in the differences between Jedi and Sith, they see only their people in servitude to beings with powers beyond their understanding. Whenever clans gather, there is talk of retribution against The Jedi and against The Old Republic they protected.
