The Mandalorians were a group of clan-based people from multiple species. Their culture revolved around that of the idea of battle and war being a source of honor and pride in their community. The leader of the Mandalorians typically took on the title of "Mandalore." They later provided the genetic template for the Clone trooper under the Galactic Republic.
Physiology and Culture
Originally, the Mandalorians were a gray-skinned warrior race descended from the Taungs of Coruscant. Later, members of other species joined their ranks, until humans made up the majority.
The Mandalorian clans were led by the warlord "Mandalore the First". Eventually they conquered a planet in the Outer Rim, which they named Mandalore after their leader. The Taung then took the name Mandalorians and were seen by many as the most skilled fighters in the Galaxy, thriving for battle. They were known for their use of cutting-edge weaponry and held to a strict code of honor.
Mandalorian Warriors wore very distinctive battle helmets with T-shaped visors that covered the entirety of their faces. These helmets would eventually become strongly associated with the Mandalorian people.
