"Looks like the academy taught us well."
―Korkie Kryze, to his fellow cadets after illegally breaking into a government warehouse[src]

The Imperial Academy of Mandalore, formerly known as the Royal Academy of Government, was an Imperial Academy located in Mandalore's capital city of Sundari.

DescriptionEdit

"My lady, if I may, what do the Jedi know of our ways? Do we really want them meddling with our children's education?"
"Surely there is nothing to fear from exposing them to new ideas, Prime Minister."
―Prime Minister Almec and Duchess Satine Kryze[src]

Located in Mandalore's capital city of Sundari,[1] the Royal Academy of Government was originally an institution that groomed the best and brightest of Mandalorian youth to help steer the planet's future[4] in leadership positions.[5] However, after it was transformed[2] into the Imperial Academy of Mandalore,[6] the school instead taught cadets about combat techniques, weapons technology and repair, and explosives[7] to prepare them for service in the Imperial Military.[6] The academy also had espionage training, attached to which was a unit that taught other languages,[8] including Aqualish and Huttese.[7] Aurebesh, the written form of Galactic Basic,[8] and Mandalorian,[9] the written form of Mando'a, the spoken language of the Mandalorian people,[8] were both used within the academy.[1]

HistoryEdit

As the Royal Academy of GovernmentEdit

"According to Senator Amidala, Mandalore is a deeply corrupt world. If the cycle is to be broken, the future leaders at the Royal Academy of Government must learn the evils of corruption."
Anakin Skywalker, to Ahsoka Tano[src]

During the Clone Wars, a series of conflicts fought between the Galactic Republic and the breakaway Confederacy of Independent Systems, Korkie Kryze, the nephew of New Mandalorian ruler Duchess Satine Kryze, attended the Royal Academy of Government along with his friends Amis, Lagos, and Soniee. At the behest of Duchess Satine, the Jedi High Council sent Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano to Mandalore to aid her in exposing corruption in the Mandalorian government, under the guise of instructing cadets at the academy. The young Kryze and his friends, with Tano's assistance, worked to expose Mandalorian Prime Minister Almec's involvement in the black market.[1]

As the Imperial Academy of MandaloreEdit

"Hera, you know what happened when I was a cadet at the Imperial Academy on Mandalore. I trusted the Empire, followed its orders blindly, and it was a nightmare."
―Sabine Wren, to Hera Syndulla[src]

After the Clone War's conclusion, the Galactic Empire seized control of Mandalore[10] and transformed the Royal Academy into the Imperial Academy of Mandalore.[2] A star pupil,[6] the Mandalorian Sabine Wren studied the tactics used by Twi'lek freedom fighter Cham Syndulla[11] and Journeyman Protector leader Fenn Rau used during the Clone Wars[10] and learned that the Empire was developing a new cruiser with gravity well projectors powerful enough to pull a ship out of hyperspace.[12] She was also the fastest cadet to complete the language unit during espionage training. During her time at the academy, Wren encountered a number of Imperial officials that she felt enjoyed being arrogant, comparing them unfavorably with the Lothal Academy's Commandant Cumberlayne Aresko.[8] However, her trusting the Empire and following its orders blindly led to a nightmarish[3] experience[7] that caused Wren to abandon the academy and become a bounty hunter, eventually joining a group of rebels who operated on the planet Lothal.[13]
