‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2: A ‘Star Wars’ Lore Cheat Sheet
The first season of “The Mandalorian” hinted at unseen events – long ago in a galaxy far, far away – that drove the surviving warriors of Mandalore into an underground life.

One of the show’s biggest surprises included the season one finale, when former Imperial officer Moff Gideon used a legendary Mandalorian weapon to break out of his ruined TIE fighter.

Although it was said that no prior knowledge of “Star Wars” was required to jump into the first season of the series, the appearance of Darksabers along with commercials and casting reports (not to mention rumors) point to the second season of ” The Mandalorian, “which premieres Friday on Disney +, and delves into lore revealed over the years in shows such as” Star Wars: The Clone Wars “and” Star Wars Rebels “.

During season one, it was revealed that the Imperial forces clashed with the Mandalorians before the fall of the Empire, wiping them out almost entirely. They also took their beskar – the precious, almost indestructible metal that was used to forge Mandalorian armor.

But what happened before? Here’s a quick rundown of Mandalorian history for those who haven’t spent the 10 months since the season one finale with all of the Star Wars animated shows – or just want a refresher.

In the old days …

The Mandalorians have a long history of wars and battles. A warrior society consisting of different houses and clans, fighting and a sense of honor are fundamental elements of their cultural identity.

Not only are the Mandalorians fighting among themselves for political power, but they have long been fighting the Jedi.

What is the dark sword?

The legendary Darksaber, a special lightsaber with a dark blade, was created by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian Jedi and ruler of Mandalore in ancient times. It was taken to a Jedi Temple after his death, but long before the events of a “Star Wars” movie, members of House Vizsla stole it and used it to unite and rule over their people.

The unique weapon briefly fell from Mandalorian hands during the Clone Wars, but was eventually used again by a worthy leader to unite the various clans and reclaim Mandalore from the Empire.

An era of peace. Type of.

Mandalore was one of the planets on the outer edge that had initially chosen to remain neutral during the Clone Wars because their then ruler, Duchess Satine of House Kryze, was committed to pacifism. Satine had seen a civil war destroy her homeworld and was determined to keep the now peaceful Mandalorians out of a galactic war.

Unfortunately, not everyone shared Satine’s ideals. Among those determined to return Mandalore to its warlike roots, a group of Mandalorian insurgents called Death Watch – led by a man called Pre Vizsla (yes, this House Vizsla) attacked Satine and her government in an attempt to take out Mandalore their roots to force peaceful goals. They worked with various external forces such as the separatists and a newly formed criminal syndicate.

When Maul killed Satine and put on a puppet premiere, Mandalore’s pacifist days were over.

Maul?

Although Darth Maul was cut in half during a fight in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he survived. In the “Clone Wars” series he gives up “Darth” and his loyalty to his Sith Lord Darth Sidious, alias Palpatine, but not his hatred of the Jedi.

Maul worked with the death guard, built a criminal syndicate, marched into Mandalore, killed Pre Viszla and took the Darksaber, among other things.

He is eventually defeated by Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi, who recaptures Bo-Katan Kryze – Satine’s sister who had joined Death Watch but refused to recognize an outsider as a leader – recapturing Mandalore for the Mandalorians.

Which side did the Mandalorians stand on during the rebellion?

It’s complicated. Bo-Katan’s brief tenure as the leader of the Mandalorians ended shortly after the Clone Wars ended because she refused to obey the Empire.

Other Mandalorians, realizing that either way they would be occupied by Imperial forces, served the Empire. Some did what it took to survive.

A Mandalorian, Sabine Wren, was part of the rebellion. She eventually came into the possession of the Darksabers (long story; Maul had it again), but initially rejected the symbolized responsibility because she knew that her family and other Mandalorians viewed her as a traitor.

Sabine overcomes her hesitation and trains to use the Darksaber to recruit some Mandalorians for the rebel alliance. After defeating the Empire’s top Mandalorian and making up with her family, she works to free Mandalore from Imperial control.

After Sabine destroys a weapon that she invented with the help of Bo-Katan, she persuades her to take the Darksaber to wield a unified Mandalore again.

What happened after the defeat of the empire?

Hopefully we’ll find out more in the second season of The Mandalorian.
