Canon-based Origins and History
The Mandalorian Guild’s origins date back to the Mandalorian Protectors , an ancient order of Elite Mandalorian warriors who were charged with protecting the Mand’alor , ruler of Mandalore with their lives. Some time prior to 30 BBY however, Mandalore was caught in a Devastating Civil War in which the outcome birthed a New, Pacifist Governance of Mandalore, The New Mandalorians . Many founding Guild members were Protectors who did not see Duchess Satine Kryze and her Government as the True Rulers of Mandalore, and defected into their own militarized ranks. They did not affiliate with former Governor of Concordia ; Pre Vizsla ’s Death Watch ideology either, finding their methods to be extremist, and their philosophy of the Warrior Culture to be warped. The Original faction was founded sometime prior to 30 BBY by Aloquar Ordo, and was only maintained in small sects accross the Mandalore System , or in some cases outside.
The Mandalorian Guild found home on many planets, reorganising themselves into Freelance Mercenaries who protected the Mandalore System from harm, just as their cousins the Mandalorian Protectors did- however outside the laws of the New Mandalorians. The Guild did still however maintain a cautious neutrality with New Mandalore. They also acted heavily as a Mercenary Guild, taking up Bounty Jobs frequently, and splitting the earnings as pay. These earnings would also be a fund for weapons and vehicles, amongst other resources.
During the Clone Wars , the Faction operated out of many hideouts and strongholds, however notably ‘Lady Devastator’, a repurposed Munificent-class Star Frigate stolen from the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Mandalorian faction was able to successfully commandeer the vessel by shutting down all remnant Droid Units on board - and thus were able to take it's cowardice Captain as their prisoner.
Prior to this, the Guild's Aliit'Alor and leader; Aloquar Ordo would find himself detained by the Confederacy following a Bounty mission gone wrong.
After Kozar's capture, the faction would then Demand a Prisoner exchange with the CIS between Kozar and the Early Guild's Founder; Aloquar Ordo. The exchange would take place in the Orbit of Vjun .
Some weeks following the exchange however, a stronghold of the Guild would come under siege by the Death Watch - perhaps under the orchestration of the CIS. The siege would take place in a Guild stronghold on Zanbar , and ultimately would lead to it's destruction. Only several survivors were able to escape the planet, one of which being Aloquar himself, the very same from the prisoner exchange. His wounds however would be severe and would succumb to them some time later. This lead Beviin Kabur to take control of the faction, and thus rename 'Battlecruiser 22' to 'Lady Devastator', Aloquar's title of 'The Devastator' being the namesake.
Many new recruits of the Guild after this point came from various different major and minor Clans , and even outsiders were welcomed if they were willing to adopt Mandalorian culture. Thus making the collective incredibly diverse range of warriors, and having no-identifiable discriminations or hatred for the pre-established clans of Rook , Ordo, Vizsla , Eldar , Saxon , Wren or Kryze , nor that of other races, either. During Maul’s reign of Mandalore, many members of the faction aligned themselves with Bo-Katan Kryze and her Nite Owl faction, and fought Maul’s Supercommando’s in another Mandalorian Civil War . This allegiance lasted until the Galactic Empire took hold of Mandalore, where the remaining members of the Faction splintered once again, though remained in contact. Lady Devastator would find herself hidden for decades on amidst the ruins of Taris for many years to come, far from the Empire’s prying eyes. It is safe to say that at some point The Faction maintained a Rebel cell against the Galactic Empire. Many members would most likely affiliate themselves with The Mandalorian Resistance, and combat the forces of the Galactic Empire and Clan Saxon. Lady Devastator would also be manned, and the Guild’s fleet would stand once more, for freedom of the oppression in the Mandalore Sector, and elsewhere.
Original Organization and Philosophy
Ordo asserted that the Mandalorians of the guild were simply highly-paid soldiers, and should conduct themselves as honorable mercenaries, Ordo believed he was walking in Jaster's footsteps, as he led the True Mandalorians. Much of their teachings came from the Supercommando Codex which contained many commandments that not only resurrected but modernized the ancient Canons of Honor. Thus, they highlighted the many tenants of the resol'nare which governed Mandalorian society.
In terms of tactics, their strategies varied during the different periods the memebers were in operation. At the time of the Clone Wars, they served as elite shock troopers who made use of superior weaponry as well as training to decimate their foes. The missions of the guild members were often high profile and difficult targets that were incapable of being overwhelmed by simple brute force. As a result, the guild preferred the use of tactics, employing mind over matter. The guild often found itself very busy during the Clone Wars.
The Mandalorian Guild was founded on August 25th, 2011, by player and user ‘Aloquar Ordo’ on a then-MMO ‘Clone Wars:Adventures’. The Group was initially based upon the EU True Mandalorian faction, and consisted of many pre-established Mandalorian Squads in-game, including The Mandalorian Rising.
On March 18th, 2013, Aloquar Ordo stepped down as leader, passing his powers down to Beviin Kabur, after nearly two years of leading the Mandalorian Guild.
After CWA Closed, the Guild met a brief Hiatus before refounding itself on SW:TOR. Beviin Kabur reclaimed leadership for some time before Ghes Kal stepped in as acting Alor.
Since then, Ghes has also stepped down- paving way for Beviin to re-assume control of the Guild.
The Faction also has many sub-companies, that acted under the Rally Masters as their portion of the Guild. These companies were created for the purpose of in-game, light role-play organisation, however can be applied to the current iteration of the Guild.
- Beskar Battalion - A Collective of Vehicle users and heavy weapon specialists, generally acting as the front lines of assault.
- Vertigo Company - A Collective of Jetpack users, Often operating as reconnaissance and tactical advisors.
- Zerek Squadron - A Collective of skilled Pilots, also operating as reconnaissance for Hunts.
