Star Wars: Enemy of the Republic - Light Side
Mandalore is the fifth planet in the Mandalore system of the Outer Rim Territories, not far from the Hydian Way trade route. The homeworld of the multi-species cultural group known as the Mandalorians, during the Clone Wars the planet was ruled by the New Mandalorians, who renounced the warlike ways of their parent culture and embraced a peaceful co-existence with the rest of the galaxy. Unfortunately, a splinter group of Mandalorians known as the Death Watch disagreed with this course and staged a coup against the ruling faction.
After the war, the Empire seemingly forgave the Mandalorians their role and allowed Mandalore to rule itself for a time. However, when the Empire decided it wanted the rare and valuable Mandalorian iron mined on the planet and it’s moon of Concordia, they sent several garrisons in to annex the planet and forced it’s populace into slave labor. The Death Watch sided with the Empire, hoping to restore their former power within the galaxy, but many loyal soldiers retreated to a location known as the City of Bone, where they take freed slaves and prisoners. They have dubbed themselves the Mandalorian Protectors, and are working to remove the Empire from their world.
