Wookie Mandalorians

No-Katan’s army needs Wookie Mandalorians. They were legitimately a thing in the old EU (“Legends”). In fact, one is a key quest giver of the bounty hunter questline in the last lingering part of the EU, The Old Republic MMORPG. And they could look so cool: Creed, not race, Favreau. You said it.
