Cynthia Snyder
Mandalorian Warrior


Background:

I was born on Mandalore in the Emperor Clan Royal Household of K'yltek. Females have the right to serve as an Elite Guard for the Royal House. First I need to pass the test of the trials and then finish the Hunt.

I have passed The Trial and now move on to The Hunt. For this hunt I wanted to try some new cybernetics so I can become stronger and quicker for combat.

For the last 4 years I've worked as a Merc and helped out and used Kason for information from across the galaxy. I also did a small amount of work for Ki and Harry along the path.

For my Hunt I need to kill a Sith Knight to prove myself for the Emperor Clan. Our Hunt is set to higher standards for more is required once maturity is proved and warrior status is earned for the Mandalorian Emperor's Clan. >>>Remainder is Classified<<<

I also gather information for the Mandalorian Empire.

More will be added later.

Special Abilities:
Resistant to Force Use: Mandalorians are immune to some of the effects of the Force, and their minds cannot be read using the force, or modified using the force. However precognitiant abilities such as Lightsabre Combat work perfectly well.
Inability to use the Force: The Mandalorians have a genetic defect inherited from their ancestors and compounded by the small genepool that they have grown from. They cannot use the force. Not only does this mean that they cannot become Jedi, they cannot earn or spend Force Points.
Genetically Superior: Due to the harsh circumstances the Mandalorian people grew from, they are a much hardier people than most species in the galaxy. While the Mandalorians like to see this as Genetic Superiority, it is perhaps more linked to their inability to use the force, so they have had to rely on themselves more. This "superiority" gives them a bonus of 6 Attribute Dice when starting play.

The Mandalorians are a hardy people with a strict warrior culture decended from human colonists from Coruscant. They are famous throughout the galaxy for their armored suits and skillfull warriors, long in their past they raided the Republic on a regular basis.

Story Factors:
Feared: Enemies facing the massed forces of the Mandalorian Empire will quite rightly fear them, this makes the forces opposing the Mandalorians more difficult to Command.
Honor: Mandalorians base their lives around the concept of honor, while part of this honor is serving and obeying the Mandalorian Emperor and his representitives, it is also a personal honor requiring them to protect it with deed and action.

History:
Mandalorian Empire
The Mandalorian Empire's history begins with the Old Republic; the Republic was expanding as colonists left the core worlds settling new worlds. Many new colonies were being set up successfully, and the routine was becoming perfected with planets such as Corellia, Alderaan and Chandrilla being founded around this time. The Starship Mandalore set off for a new system filled with ten thousand colonists, but a malfunction in their hyperdrive unit forced a massive mis-jump carrying the ship a large distance across the galaxy. Emerging from hyperspace they found themselves in a star system with a single habitable planet, landing on this world their drive systems failed completely causing the ship to plummet onto the surface killing almost 50% of the people aboard.

The time following the crash was difficult for the survivors; while the planet was habitable it was not a comfortable world to live on. They had crashed in a large desert so the survivors split into three groups, the first decided to remain with the wreck of the Mandalore, the second headed west towards a set of mountains, and the third headed a great distance to the south towards an ocean. These groups were the beginning of the Mandalorian clan structure that still exists, the largest group that had headed for the mountains became the mining clan Ar`Klim, the religious clan D`ael`mor. Those that headed for the sea became the hunter clan Krei`ger and the warrior clan Par`tay`un. Those that remained with the ship became the warrior clan S`badai, the engineer clan Du`trachek and the clan of the emperors K`yltek. Because the S`badai, Du`trachek and the K`yltek clans remained with the wreckage of the Mandalore they gained a control over the other clans, using the ships wreckage to maintain and build technology. As the population grew and the planet became more heavily populated the K`yltek clan used this to form the Mandalorian Empire, passing from their more ancient tasks of trading and negotiating to the task of ruler ship, a hold that is still maintained.

After a thousand years on their new homeworld the five thousand original surviving colonists had grow to 5 million, but the small gene pool that they were all descended from caused the traits of the original five thousand to become magnified. Firstly the harsh conditions, and the feeling the republic had abandoned them became the foundations of a violent temperament that exists throughout the Mandalore. To counter this their civilization became very honor driven formalizing combat and battle to a point where it no longer endangers their entire civilization. The fact that none of the colonists were force users or even force sensitive has become magnified into a strong resistance to the manipulations of the force.

Also around this period they were contacted by the Juannar, the first contact did not go easily and the Mandalore resisted their first urges to destroy these visitors. They accepted that the Juannar were not hostile, and even though it took the Juannar fifteen years to learn how to communicate with the Mandalore, peaceful contact was eventually established. The Juannar lived on one of the gas giants within the Mandalore system, and were an advanced technological species although very poorly adapted to living in environments that differed to their own, requiring protective suits to survive the atmosphere of the Mandalore homeworld. The two species found that they complemented each other very well, the Juannar could create technologies that the Mandalore couldn't even comprehend the principles behind, where the Mandalore were a tough and robust species capable of operating in environments that the Juannar could not.

With the help of the Juannar the Mandalore prospered over the next two millennia, their population climbing into the billions, as they constructed massive cities and space stations throughout the Mandalore system. Then the Vuana arrived, a war like species that had conquered themselves a moderately-sized empire of twenty or so systems, and had enslaved four species. They attacked the Mandalorian system, and although the Juannar and Mandalore managed to fight them off, their system was in ruins, many cities had been bombed into oblivion, and none of the settlements they had constructed still existed. As they rebuilt they also prepared for war, if one attack could happen they reasoned that others could as well. So, for the next three thousand years they rebuilt and armed, expanding beyond their system for the first time. They came into conflict with the Vuana and finally destroyed the last Vuana and the species that had aided them in their attack on Mandalore. This set the Mandalorian psyche for generations to come, to protect themselves they would have to be more powerful than anyone else. So they began to expand, carving out colonies in star systems around their home, and expanding outwards so they would never have to suffer an attack like the one they had from the Vuana.

For almost two thousand years this continued, the Mandalorian Empire expanding until it contained over fifty star systems, then their expanding border met with that of the Republic. The Mandalore incensed over their abandonment by the Republic began to wage war on their former homelands, a condition that continued for thousands of years, however compared to the countless systems that made up the Republic the Mandalore were small indeed. The only time over the following millennia that the Mandalore even slowed their attacks and wars with the Republic was to battle an ecological menace when a meteorite caused serious damage to the Juannar homeworld, which took all of the Mandalorian Empires resources to combat.
