The Mandalorians – Part 1

The Mandalorians had a strong code of honor that could be invoked to settle disputes with one-on-one combat that would conclude with the death of one opponent. Mandalorian armor’s signature motifs included helmets with ‘T’-shaped visors, jetpacks, flamethrowers and whipcord throwers. They generally favored WESTAR-35 blaster pistols and Z-6 jetpacks, which could project missiles.

Pre Vizsla was the leader of Death Watch during the Clone Wars, and was an ancient descendant of Tor Vizsla.

Jango Fett was a bounty hunter before the Clone Wars and was the genetic template of the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic.

Boba Fett was a male human bounty hunter, and the genetic clone of infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett.

Mandalorian Supercommandos, or Mando Ori’ramikade in Mando’a, were elite Mandalorian soldiers that followed the Supercommando Codex.

The bounty hunters Jango Fett and Boba Fett wore Mandalorian armor, keeping the memory of the Mandalorians alive well into the Galactic Civil War. After Boba Fett’s striking armor captured fans’ imaginations, the Mandalorians became an integral part of Star Wars.
