Name of faction: E'tad'nare
History/creation of faction: Originally a small cult of Taung warriors that utilized their meagre understanding of the Force to become elite warriors among their people, the E'tad'nare were not named until the Mandalorian Wars when their talents were put to the greatest use in the attempted Galactic conquest. When the war was over and the Mandalorian clans scattered, the few E'tad'nare that had survived the war rallied around their Alor and went into hiding. From the shadows, they worked to maintain the Mandalorian old ways. For centuries they did little else than recruit, silently, those honorable Mandalorians who were sensitive to the Force and keep the traditions alive.
Alor Arpat Vod ceased the non-action of the E'tad'nare during the Mandalorian Civil War when Death Watch rose to power and the Supercommandos were established. Siding with the Supercommandos, the E'tad'nare began their more modern practice of acting as a sort of special forces operating without oversight and on their own terms. Vigilantes for the Mandalorian culture, working to ensure that, for the most part, the Resol'nare are upheld and that planet Mandalore is never truly controlled by aruetii.
