Unrest amongst Mandalorians

October 24, 2012

Through rumour and discussion, Galactic News Network learnt learnt on an incident in the Mandalorian Community.

The city of Iziz

The mandalorian community entered into turmoil after an incident in Onderon. In the middle of a crowd, the leader of the community, the Mandalore A’denla Kad attacked by surprise his daughter Nohime Laar Vu’traat and wounded her. The reason of this attack is not clear.

By the way this act was considered dishonourable by the mandalorians we met, some of them relaying the feeling of clan leaders. Tongues also evoke the spectre of a civil war and expect the main clans will side against the Mandalore and assert he would have made wrong decisions with wrong persons. This event may be the pretext to an violent overthrow.

The day after the attack, Nohime and A’denla found in an honour duel in the sand sea of Taooine with many mandalorians witnessing. More regularly played, this duel saw once more the victory of the Mandalore, he spared Nohime. The woman was sent to the Vutraat base heavily wounded.

    This Network wonders why Mandalorians do not always take kindly to them, this article is exactly why.

    It’s sad to see such things happen but it is the way of the mandalorian honor duel. Nohime fought with honor even with all of the odds stacked against her and she should be proud of that. I know that many will look favorably upon her because of this. As for the Mandalore, he did what he was to do in that situation. He fought and won. When they stpped in that ring they were no longer father and daughter. That had to be put aside because it was about a grander picture than just that. It was about the Mandalore being challenged for his position. As I said Nohime did fight with great honor and I commend her for it.

      “No, we have been fishing in the great arctic lakes of Ilum, don’t let this article fool you”

      he responded with the slightest hint of saracasm

    Somehow I’m not surprised that the attack was seen as a shock. Let me put it to you this way, you are a leader in a culture where you follow said leader despite perhaps hating his guts. Now let’s say that someone decides to betray this culture by saying “hey, I don’t like you and I think your leadership is stupid” You, as the leader, are fully within your rights to say “hey, enough of your shenanigans.” and possibly attack the person.

    By the way this act was considered dishonourable by the mandalorians we met, some of them relaying the feeling of clan leaders. Tongues also evoke the spectre of a civil war and expect the main clans will side against the Mandalore and assert he would have made wrong decisions with wrong persons. This event may be the pretext to an violent overthrow.

    first off, there are no “main” clans.There are Clans that are and there are clans that are not. The difference being which of the clans actually adhere to the Resol’nare. secondly, There are always whispers of Civil war, this is because the whisperers have not the balls that miss Nohime showed to actually challenge Mand’alor. finally, any Mandalorians that found this to be dishonourable were no doubt, the clans that seek to have Mand’alor make them feel special by visiting them in the outer rim.

      Let’s put the things straight. A mandalorian civil war is a worst ideea and those who can take advantage from that, let’s be honest are the ennemies of mando’ade…kyr’tsad, siit and others, even jetii.Despite the fact i am not a fan of the acting Mand’alor,in my opinion his methods to impose his authority being, let’s say questionable, he succeeded after a long time to unite the most of aliite and strike the jetiise directly in the heart, taking over the planet capital, Coruscanta, something that never happened even in the times of old Mando’ade akaane. According to the mandp’ade customs and tradition he claimed the mask of Mand’alor and was recognised as Mand’alor by the majority of aliite.He also defeated in fair combat the OverLord of the Kyr’tsad Vurr Vizsla. So until he will be challenged and defeated in a honor duel, he is the sole ruler of mando’ade, if we like or not.Elek, he has, weak spots like any other of us, but is just a living being, like any others, nobody is perfect. I can challenge him but it worth this? Maybe i will win, maybe not, maybe i will die. But i know something. I am young, i have less experience as leader comparing to him and sincerly i prefer him. I prefer a strong Manda’yaim to a scattred one, as it was until he became Mand’alor.I repeat, i am not his fan, but he is the leader.We are far away, we are just mercs, dar’aliite, but if his emissaires will reach Rakata calling us to akaan, we will come, not for him, especially, but because honor and Resol’nare

      Oya manda!

    I actually have a question: It seems to me (Having an outsider’s perspective and not wanting to pry too much) that Lady Nohime challenged her father’s position for Mand’alor, forcing him to defend it. According to the Resol’nare, one of the tenets sacred to your culture is the defense of one’s kin. So does this imply, in essence, that A’denla Kad has effectively disowned his daughter?

      Ask him! He may respond or he ….may not.But it is a delicate situation.

      The tenets of the Resol’nare are about protecting yourself and your family. Nohime challenged A’denla to honorable combat for the position of Mand’alor. He defended himself, Honorable combat as a means to settle a dispute does not mean that the two are dar’aliite, or no longer family. In fact, it’s a way to settle things through contest of strength without risking breaching the Resol’nare.

      • October 26, 2012 at 3:00 AM

        Indeed,according to the tenets of Resol’nare, Mand’alor A’denla Kad was in his right, after was challenged to a honor duel, after Nohime challenged him.But, according to the article written by the aruetii reporters, it looks like she responded after she was attacked ,in public, in the center of Iziz City, by her buir, the acting Mand’alor A’denla Kad and if the incident really happened… well, i believe that family business must be settled in private, not in a public plaza for the delight and amusement of aruetii crowd.Whatever.. I am told the refueling of my ship is complete. Anyway , i don’t want to hear anything about this…business. Then he closed the holonet connection and he departed in the direction of the space station docks.
