The Mandrala are a race of hot-tempered
religious zealots. Every member of their ancient species
swells with pride with the knowledge that they are,
indisputably, a direct descendent of God Himself. Their
name is derived from their greatest prophet, Mandralor,
who is believed to have been alive during the foundation
of the Galactic Union itself!
Mandrala joined hands with the Enlar to form the Union
approximately two millennia ago. It is said that their
deity, Mandralor, gained his god-like status shortly
afterward, during the Ancient Ignus War. Little
is known of this dark period in Galactic history, for
less than 1% of the fledgling republic's population
lived to tell the tale.
but one truth that survived the Ancient Slaughter.
When the Ignus spread like wildfire throughout the
Union, multiplying as they feasted upon the helpless
Enlar and Mandrala colonies, they were stopped by a
lone being. The prophet Mandralor, who sacrificed himself
to bring an end to the Ignus onslaught, containing them
for nearly two thousand years.
In the modern era, contact with
the Mandrala is inconsistent and sparse. They rarely
care for the "company" of the Galaxy's "lesser races,"
preferring to spend their entire lives training for
battle. It is for this reason that they have become
renowned as the guardians of the Union. Their mere
presence brings peace of mind during times of strife;
and without them, all is lost.
