The Journeyman Protectors,[6] also known as the Mandalorian Protectors[7] or simply the Protectors, were an ancient group of Mandalorians who served the ruler of Mandalore. When the Galactic Empire claimed control of their homeworld, the Protectors established a base on the third moon of Concord Dawn in the Concord Dawn system. Under the leadership of Fenn Rau, the Protectors formed an alliance with the Empire. After Rau was captured by the rebels Kanan Jarrus and Sabine Wren, who fought with honor, the Protectors’ sympathies were forced to change.[2] In 2 BBY, the Protectors were wiped out by the Imperial Viceroy Gar Saxon in an attempt to lure Rau out of hiding.[3]


Clone WarsEdit

During the Clone Wars, they fought with the Republic's Grand Army.[4] At the third battle on Mygeeto, the Protectors fought in Skull Squadron against the battle droids. They also rescued Jedi General Depa Billaba and her Padawan, Caleb Dume.[5]

Imperial TruceEdit

At some point after the Imperial occupation of the Protectors homeworld Mandalore, the Protectors left Mandalore, and established a base on the third moon of the Concord Dawn system. Led by Fenn Rau, they forged an agreement with the Empire.[2]

Conflict with Phoenix SquadronEdit

In 3 BBY, the Spectres, Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren, along with two Phoenix Squadron pilots were sent to Concord Dawn to negotiate the usage of their hyperspace routes. The negotiators were attacked by the Protectors in orbit, led by Rau. Spectre leader Kanan Jarrus was sent to destroy their Fang fighters to stop further conflict. In truth, Kanan was attempting to finish Hera's mission, to negotiate terms. Sabine stowed away on board the Phantom, against Kanan's wishes to eliminate Rau for severely injuring Hera in a dogfight. After capturing their leader and destroying their Fang fighters, Rau was forced to let the rebels use their hyperspace routes.[4]


In 2 BBY, the Imperial Viceroy of Mandalore, Gar Saxon, discovered that the Protectors were allowing rebel ships to travel through the Concord Dawn system in order to avoid Imperial sector patrols. In an attempt to lure Fenn Rau back, Saxon and his Imperial super commandos attacked the Protectors' encampment on the third moon of Concord Dawn and wiped them out. When Rau traveled back to Concord Dawn with Sabine, Ezra Bridger, and Chopper, they discovered that the Protectors had been decimated. After escaping Saxon, Rau decided to join the rebellion.[3]
