Topic: What Is the Mando Culture?
What is the definition of Mandalorian culture and their way of life, and what exactly is it that true Mandalorians live for?
This question has come up in off topic conversations in several threads, so I thought it would be a good idea to make it ON topic, as itÃ¢Â€Â™s a question that many of us have a very strong opinion about
I personally believe they *the true Mando culture of Pre-Mandalorian Wars era, a culture I believe was followed by some later generations like the True Mandalorians and *in my opinion* the Fetts* are the Star Wars equivalent of the ancient Spartans: dedicating their lives to gaining honor in battle.
I know many members of the community here have issues with this way of looking at them, mainly due to the question of how they sustained themselves *use of slavery, worker droids, and/or raiding for their needs being beneath them in many of your minds*
However, lets look at the facts:
1. ALL the Mandalorians in Star Wars *that I know of* are warriors, from the Fetts *Jango was a farmer as a child, be he was not Mando at the time, either,* to every one you meet in the KOTOR games.
2. Much of what they use, including the fabled Basilisk War Driods, were prizes of battle, not their own creations. Outside their armor *and I donÃ¢Â€Â™t know of any canon material that even makes THAT clear,* and perhaps a few weapons, *all of which could have been created for them, just under their required specs* is there anything we know of that the Mandalorians created?
ThatÃ¢Â€Â™s my opinion, whatÃ¢Â€Â™s yours?
