Mandalorian (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


In five millennia, the Mandalorians fought with and against a thousand armies on a thousand worlds. They learned to speak as many languages and absorbed weapons technology and tactics from every war. And yet, despite the overwhelming influence of alien cultures, and the absence of a true homeworld and even species, their own language not only survived but changed little, their way of life and their philosophy remained untouched, and their ideals and sense of family, of identify, of nation, were only strengthened.

Physical Description[edit]

Mandalorians are humanoids that are a race of humans from a faraway planet. Their history, governed by war, has bred their particular statures to be perfect for warriors. They generally have a lower level of fat in their bodies, resulting in muscular, lithe builds. They have a variance of hair colors, like humans, as well as skin tones.


The mandalorians are a nomadic people, with the roots of this tradition tracing back to the mandalorian Crusader's tendency to make conquered worlds their home. Even long after the conquests of Mandalore, the mandalorians would hold on to these nomadic traditions, partially out of attachment to the old ways, but also as a means to avoid presenting a single target to any enemy who would wish to wipe them out. Their legendary conquests gave them great reputations among all the star systems, but ultimately put them at odds with the Old Republic. Resulting struggles decimated Mandalore and turned its surface into an inhospitable desert.


Mandalorian families never expect their current home to be permanent, nor do mandalorian soldiers. Portability is desired over a large number of material possessions, and even the traditional mandalorian dwelling known as a vheh'yaim was designed to be set up for temporary occupation and easily deconstructed or abandoned. While many cultures with a settled location celebrated events and festivals that were derived from the changing seasons of their homeworld, the mandalorians' nomadic customs have left them largely disconnected from these sorts of cycles as they traveled from world to world.

The ancient mandalorian Crusaders and their Neo-Crusader replacements lived and thrived on war, seeking conflict, and attaining glory through conquest. But following the end of the mandalorian Wars, many mandalorian soldiers would become bounty hunters and mercenaries, selling their services to the highest bidder. This mercenary trend would become a part of the culture for thousands of years to come, and many in the galaxy saw the mandalorians as little else.
