Before i start, i'd like to begin with three things *Whats the big deal about Mandalorians?* What an ignorant question! Is it the asking that makes it ignorant? No, its the common tone found in so many of the people that ask such a question. Mandalorian fans dont owe you a friggin explanation as to why they like Mandalorians. I had a friend who simply just wanted to know what the big deal about Mandalorians was because he was just curious, and heck thats fine, i honestly dont mind explaining to him why i like mandalorians and the Fetts etc, but i refuse to answer some moron whos just going to blast what i like after i've told him anyway. In short: Dont ask why people like Mandalorians if you yourself are not willing to understand. You dont have to like them, just keep in mind that choosing to stay ignorant to anything is dangerous. *Jango Fett and Boba Fett are not real Mandalorians* Jango Fett and Boba Fett are as Mandalorian as the first ever Mandalore. Jango Fett was once a leader of the Mandalorians and had the respect of his entire crew. Boba Fett, as shown in the Unifying Force is the new Mandalore. While information as to why he turned from his father's honorable intentions for many years of his life remain in the dark, it is clear that Boba Fett is the new Mandalore or leader of the Mandalorians. Continuing my arguement on what makes a real Mandalorian: The Mandalorians of this time are in fact different. There is no information yet as to why they changed from planet conquerors to highly paid mercenaries yet the Death Watch are obvious remnants to the Mandalorian past, one in which Jaster felt needed to be abandoned for reasons unknown. BUT one thing is now for sure: The Mandalorians of Jaster Mareels age are elite soldiers and not of Mandalorian blood (some speculate Jaster to have been a real Mandalorian). Yet any Mandalorian can tell you, devoting your life to the code makes you a Mandalorian. Many people argue that after the raid on Galidraan, there are no more Mandalorians save Jango and Boba, yet there were several people who had been dropped from the Mandalorian Mercenary group and are still considered Mandalorians by some from their combat training and bearing of the armor, but any Mandalorian would of course disagree. I hope this settles the confusion as to the Mandalorian mentions in Republic Commando: Hard Contact (example: Montross, Ghez Hokan) So the last Mandalorian before Boba Fett was Jango, from a certain point of view. People would call Montross Mandalorian because he still wears his armor, but he wouldnt be considered a Mandalorian by Jango Fett or Jaster or anyone who served under them because Montross was kicked from the group, a great dishonor. If you feel i am wrong about any of that, please i'd love to go over this and i'd love to learn what you know. I am continuously seeking information on the Mandalorians and anything you know would be excellent.
