Peace time in Mandalore
The Mandalorian talks a lot about the planet Mandalore, the biggest basis of the Mandalorian Creed, but it is not seen in the series. After years of conflict, the planet was desolated by the Empire. But we can meet him before the ruin in The Clone Wars, during the reign of Duchess Satine Kryze – the pacifist governor of a planet of warriors.
Our first contact with the Mandalorians comes from an Obi-Wan Kenobi investigation into the fate of Jango Fett. Mandalore’s violent past is being left behind with Mandalore’s new government. Duchess Satine Kryze exiled the last dissidents to the moon of Concordia.
However, not all Mandalorians are happy with the prosperity that comes from pacifism. The Eye of Death – an anti-Jedi terrorist group – decides to attack the life of the Duchess and Obi-Wan intervenes. This is the first appearance of the Black Saber.
Duchess of Mandalore
Here we have confirmation of the involvement between Count Dooku and the Eye of Death. As Satine fights for Mandalore’s neutrality in the Senate, the separatists are armed to force Mandalore into the war. The Eye of Death almost manages to lead the planet to civil war, but Satine intervenes at the last minute.
Coup in Mandalore
Greed has spread discontent among the Mandalorian people. In peacetime, they cannot conquer new planets, which means their wealth is more limited. Corruption and veiled threats run under the covers and peace in Madalore becomes an illusion. The Eye of Death has infiltrated society and its attacks on the Satine government border on the Cold War.
Senator Amidala is invited on a diplomatic mission to discuss options with Duchess Satine, when they find themselves involved in a biological attack on the children of Mandalore. His investigations reveal a refined system of corruption before the eyes of the Duchess.
Ahsoka Tano, who appears as an adult in The Mandalorian, is a young Padawan invited to assess the future rulers of the Mandalore Royal Academy. There is some resistance to Jedi interference with Mandalorian customs. Under Ahsoka’s leadership, the young Mandalorians discover a conspiracy, but end up trusting the wrong leader. An Eye of Death infiltrator attempts to deliver a coup and Ahsoka must stop him.
Bo-Katan Kryze appears
Mandalore, as a neutral territory, hosts a session that discusses the legitimacy of the separatist state. But Lux Bonteri’s thirst for revenge against Count Dooku leads us to closely observe the terrorist operations of the Eye of Death – the group that gave birth to the creed followed by Din Djarin in The Mandalorian.
A friend in trouble
Lux’s ingenuity guides Ahsoka to the Eye of Death. There, she meets Bo-Katan Kryze – the Duchess’s unfaithful sister who believes Mandalore’s future lies in violence. Pre Vizsla orders an attack on innocent villages just to establish control. Furious, Ahsoka confronts the Black Saber for the first time.
The fall of Mandalore
In The Mandalorian, we find that Bo-Katan once ruled Mandalore with the Black Saber. The events that culminate in his rise as the new leader of Mandalore begin with the fall of Mandalore at the hands of Sith Lord Darth Maul.
The Eye of Death prepares to wage war on Mandalore and they recruit Darth Maul. The two have a common goal: to get revenge on Kenobi. Maul manipulates the Eye of Death to conquer the Black Sun, including even the mighty hutt Jabba. With resources, the Eye of Death begins the invasion.
Shadows of reason
Bo-Katan becomes increasingly suspicious of Maul’s intentions, but agrees to stick to the plan. The Eye of Death uses the crime syndicate to spread terror in Sundari – the capital of Mandalore – to then capture them as false heroes. With the support of the population, Vizsla withdraws Satine from the government.
He tries to betray Maul, but the Sith challenge him to a duel. After defeating the Black Saber in a fair fight, Darth Maul becomes the new ruler of Mandalore.
Bo-Katan does not accept a foreigner as a leader and assembles a group of dissident Mandalorians. She summons Obi-Wan Kenobi to help her save his sister, but Darth Maul takes the opportunity for revenge. Bo-Katan helps Obi-Wan return to the Republic in the hopes that he can get reinforcements now that a Sith is involved.
The siege of Mandalore
The story of Ahsoka, Bo-Katan, and Mandalore are in the final arc of The Clone Wars. The Republic never answered Mandalore’s call for help, and now that the events of Revenge of the Sith are about to take place, they have no way of getting involved. Ahsoka must fight for Mandalore alongside a small team of clones.
Old friends are not forgotten
Ahsoka receives Mandalorian armor from Bo-Katan to fight alongside him against the Mandalorians allied to Maul. Along with the Bo-Katan warriors, the Republic forces are relentless, forcing the Mandalorians to retreat into the sewers. Ahsoka decides to hunt Darth Maul and ends up being trapped.
