I'd say the two traditions are so antithetical that such a combination would be impossible. They're too different to really blend; even a Sith would have much more in common with a Jedi then a Mandalorian would.

ah...I just found one, and he is in more than 1 book so he could be considered formal, correct?

In the cannon , Mandos view Jedi as cheating..

There have been characters that have left the Jedi order and hid among the Mandos , but they abandoned their jedi ways ..

A formal costume needs three references, from three different sources. Multiple appearances in books are only one source.

In the mythos, mandos have breed out force capabilities. Braden Jusic had been a jedi that was leaving just prior to order 66 (which is why he survived) and lived out the rest of his life on mandalor, even going so far as not having any children so he wouldn't pass on the "taint" of force powers. There are no visual references for him as he was only in a handful of books in the same story line. The son of Etain and Darman, who was a clone, isn't a jedi so much as a mando with force capabilities. There is a really good description of him but again no visual references (even if we had visual references for him he wouldn't be Rebel Legion). There is a third mention of a mando with force capabilities from the old Old republic, she was a war orphan that was adopted when her master was killed.

The mandos have a very dim view of force users in general with the belief that using the force is a crutch, if they do team up with force users it's more likely that they would team up with a sith rather than a jedi.

I see people say this stuff every time this subject has come up, but I have never seen anything concrete in canon sources. The things I have seen are the opinions of individual characters and not necessarily a societal viewpoint. help

THanks Nick, finally someone takes my viewpoint., besides if Mandos were so opposed to the Jedi, they would have never have let a Jedi/former Jedi join them. and they sure would not have let a Jedi wear Mando armor, which they did in the case of Jusik Very Happy

From my point of view if you want to be a mandalorian then be one. If you want to be a jedi then be a jedi. I don't see the point in mixing the two up honestly. All the kids we see at events would just wonder why boba fett has a lightsaber.

I have done jedi for a few years now and have a mando in process so I have nothing against either one. I just don't see the point in combining them.

If I claimed that I had seen a ghost, had an encounter with a sasquatch, or was given a colonoscopy by aliens from the planet Ziest (or the distant past in "The Renegade" version), the burden of proof rests on me to provide evidence of my claims. That's how burden of proof works. I can't make outrageous claims and then say "it's true unless you can't absolutely disprove it!"

It works the same way in the Rebel Legion. If you want to mash-up two unrelated costumes and have it be admissible as a Legion costume (a Mando and Jedi in this case) you have to provide evidence that its not only possible, but that has happened (and you need three sources, too!).
You can't say "I can't see a reason why not" and "there's no proof that its can't happen," and expect it to be admissible. It doesn't work that way. The burden of proof is on your shoulders, not the Legion's.

Its also a moot point since Mando's are bad guys anyway and Mando Jedi wouldn't be admissible in the RL even if you could find evidence of their existence.

Furthermore, Bardan Jusik isn't an example of a Mandolrean Jedi. He was a Jedi who quit in protest and then became a Mandolorean. He was never both at the same time (from what I understand).

You know back when I was the LMO (long time ago) someone once submitted a an Imperial Officer Jedi.

It's not hostility to want our costume standards to be high.

The legion is and should be proud that our costumes meet canon, and that they are recognizable as Star Wars costumes.

There are no Mando Jedi, and Mandos are not RL acceptable. You can't just make up something and say it's canon because you want it to be.

You said that in the last discussion. There was no "bad blood" or hostility then nor is there any now.

We just don't agree with you.

I have to agree with Granny.


Then again...from a certain point of view...Revan's mask is very Mandalorian in design...and he was a Jedi...then he was a Sith Lord...then he was Jedi again...

In fact, with the latest novel, he's a good guy, so I'm wondering if Revan might now be accepted by the RL??? I'll have to save this question until the end of the novel (which I'm reading now) to see Wink
