Onderon Guards, also known as royal Onderonian guards, were members of the Royal Onderon Militia under General Tandin during the Clone Wars. They were given the duty protect any members of the royal family on Onderon.
When Sanjay Rash took to the throne, the guards backed him as the official king. When King Rash decided to hold a public execution of Onderon's former ruler, King Ramsis Dendup, General Tandin in turn joined the rebels. After rescuing King Dendup, he and the Guard pledged their loyalty to the true king. They then joined the rebels in the highlands, and served as calvary during the droid assault. Initially, their lances and mounts overwhelmed the battle droid forces and they proved to be competent soldiers in battle. Their lances, however, could do nothing against the air superiority of the Confederacy. Later, two of them escorted the king in an escape attempt, but were trailed by Commando Droids. They attempted to defeat the droids, but their short-range lance burst could not pierce the body armor of the droids in enough time before they were killed.
The guards wielded laser lances and wore light armor. Additionally, they rode mounts into battle.
