- "An interspecies warrior culture stretching back thousands of years, the Mandalorians live for one purpose: to challenge the greatest opponents in combat and claim victory, for honor and glory. The best are proud fighters driven by a noble code, while the worst are bloodthirsty killers always looking for the next battle. While many act as independent mercenaries, the Mandalorians are divided into clans each answering to their own leader. From time to time in history, a single leader of all clans appears and is called “Mandalore.” Each new leader of the Mandalorians takes the name and mask of Mandalore and determines whether the clans will scatter or unite against a great foe. Initiates can be born into Mandalorian society or inducted from outside; either way, new Mandalorians face harsh trials as they prove themselves worthy and learn the secrets of Mandalorian weapons and armor. The Mandalorians have been loosely allied with the Sith Empire since the Empire’s return to the galaxy and played an instrumental role in the Sacking of Coruscant. Though not Imperial subjects, the Mandalorians have an enclave in the Citadel on Dromund Kaas. Their relationship with the Empire is sometimes strained, but the alliance offers one undeniable advantage: ample opportunity to face the galaxy’s greatest warriors, the Jedi."
- ―In-game Codex (Organizations)
The Mandalorians are a clan and warrior culture that have existed since before the Galactic Republic.
Their strict warrior code makes them a formidable enemy for anyone to face. They have famously battled the Galactic Republic in the Mandalorian Wars and the Sith Empire but more recently in assistance to the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War against the Republic.
Even in defeat they respect their enemy for their strength. Although they share many similarities with the Jedi Order, including their code of honor, their stint of support of the Jedi under Mandalore the Preserver due to his respect and companionship of the famed Jedi Knights Revan and Meetra Surik was short lived and refuted by his successor Mandalorians with their loyalty going to those who they have often supported in history, the Sith Empire.
