I grew to to seriously hate Kal Skirata and the other "orthodox" Mando'ade that were portrayed in the books, so I'm fine with those guys being excluded. I'm a much bigger fan of the more regimented, industrialized and conventional Mandos we see in the Death Watch, the True Mandalorians, and the Mandalorian Protectors. Tor Vizsla was a would-be galactic conqueror, Pre Vizsla's a militaristic nationalist who seems to even have some isolationalist leanings judging from the last episode, Mereel and Fett 1 were very much reformists and then PMC types of mercenaries, and the Protectors seem to actually be crusaders with a huge benovolent edge under Shysa. If we're going to see any good Mandos, I want to see more of pro-bono freedom fighter Shysa from his days alongside the Alliance. Especially considering we know that Death Watch remains allied with Black Sun well into the Galactic Civil War, with both Chop'aa Notimo and "Hitch" Kris holding actual ranks inside the organization, the latter even being a Vigo rival of Xizor. When you add that in with both the Empire's and Zann Consortium's expolitation of the planet and populace, it starts to look a lot more like Shysa was the closest Mandalore gets to genuinely good leader. I wouldn't be surprised if a later retcon makes him a hero for both the enslaved Mandalorians and the New Mandalorian thanks to his more heroic bent. Also, it's been mentioned before, but anybody else think that the razor discs fired from Vizsla's left gauntlet are Lanvarok blades? As in the Sith Lanvarok?
