Clan Beroya was a Mandalorian clan in existence during the time of the Galactic War, a conflict waged between the forces of the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. Among the clan's members were the married couple, Jos Beroya and Valk Beroya, who fought closely alongside Shae Vizla and her clan. The Beroyas trained with Vizla and her people on the Outer Rim world of Rishi, at their complex on Tracyn Island.[1] After the Mandalorian leader Mandalore the Vindicated fell in battle with the forces of the Eternal Empire, Shae Vizla succeeded him as Mand'alor. Taking the title of "Mandalore the Avenger," Vizla rallied the Mandalorians to revolt against the Eternal Empire, and Clan Beroya was among the clans who answered the new Mand'alor's call, joining her on Darvannis for a raid on the Empire's factories.[3]

Thousands of years later, Clan Beroya had established ties with Clan Awaud. The veteran soldier Nam Beroya eventually came to lead Clan Awaud as its chieftain, from before the Clone Wars' outbreak to the early days of the Galactic Civil War. After Nam was believed to have died in battle against a group of Zygerrian slavers, his adopted daughter Vera Beroya succeeded him as Clan Awaud's new chieftain.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Clan Beroya was first introduced to the Star Wars universe in the Shadow of Revan expansion for BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic MMOORPG,[1] released December 9, 2014.[4] Members of Clan Beroya would again appear in The Old Republic's subsequent 2015 expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire,[3] and in the roleplaying game adventure book Friends Like These, published on December 8, 2016 by Fantasy Flight Games.[2]

"Beroya" is the Mandalorian word for "Bounty Hunter" in Mando'a.
