|Usage and history|
Mandalorian manacles were a type of binders. Mandalorian-made, the manacles were forged of the nearly impervious Mandalorian beskar iron. The incredible strength afforded by the iron allowed Mandalorian manacles to keep up with the advent of newer binder technology.
In the centuries prior to the creation of force shackles and energy cuffs, Mandalorian manacles were a popular export from the planet Mandalore, the Mandalorians' cultural homeworld, located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. They became part of the common equipment available to Mandalorian police units, and became known for their ability to imprison Force-users. Following the rise of the Galactic Empire, Imperial forces contacted the MandalMotors company seeking to contract specialist equipment made of beskar, with a shipment of Mandalorian manacles among the items the Empire requested. Decades later, in 41 ABY, the veteran Mandalorian soldier Goran Beviin, recommended Mandalorian manacles to the Jedi Knight Jaina Solo, who had come to Mandalore looking for assistance in capturing her recently-turned Sith Lord brother, Jacen Solo.
