Clan Kelborn, a legendary Mandalorian clan dating back far as to days of the Dark Wars thousands of years ago, founded by the original Kelborn, the right hand man of Mandalore the Preserver. Kelborn has always been a clan that regularly prefer keep things to themselves, staying out of politics of the other clans and houses unless it directly involves them such as when they sided with Jicoln Cadera's rebellion against Mandalore the Vindicated after the Great Galactic War thousands years ago. But now there are too few members, taking heavy loses during the Mandalorian Civil War when they were betrayed by Clan Gedyc, leading a ambush by members of the Death Watch for Kelborn's role in siding with Mand'alor Jaster Mereel, thus leading them to secure themselves and hidden away somewhere in deep jungles of Mandalore where it is consider too dangerous for even for some Mandalorians. But their stance changed when during the Clone Wars, one of it's members helped in the assistance of training the Clone Army, adopting Clones into the clan but the one that stood out was Arc Trooper name Blitz, a highly skilled soldier and member of the highly skilled Rancor Battalion.
But soon with the war continuing a split of ideals began happen within the clan, some wanted take direct action against the New Mandalorians while others wished continue to stay out of the politics of Mandalore, the current clan head Marik Kelborn did his best to control the situation but it was only matter of time before things began violent. It ended up happening after the Clone Wars ended and when former Clone troopers like Blitz who left the military, joined the clan, many disliked this and open fighting happened, Cadera and Ordo try stop it much as they could but Marik Kelborn and other high ranking members were killed, leaving few remaining, ultimately Blitz took control of the situation and was able put down the rebel clanmates, earning the respect of his fellow Mandalorians, it eventually ended with Blitz as the new clan leader. Blitz now is a respected Mandalorian warrior within the clans and while things between them and the Saxons haven't been violent, Blitz has not hidden his dislike towards Gar Saxon, a factor that has played in heavy tensions between the two, doesn't help it has been suggested Kelborn spies have assisted the Rebels in some systems. Still now the clan much like House Ordo, is just buying it's time for the right moment make their move against the Empire.
Battle Cry: Vi cuyir te prudii!/We are the shadow!
Colors: Red and Gray, Green and Black.
Strengths: While few in number, the clan makes it up for their legendary skills as spies and scouts, being able sneak enemy lines in a minute's notice. It is not unheard of some wars being won due to the Kelborn's involvement in it, they trained themselves to be killing machines and to be swift and quick, thus leading some members to be worth a whole platoon of soldiers. Because of their involvement in many wars, the clan has respect and envy of several clans, leading some more then willing back them when they are needed like the Caderas and of course House Ordo.
Home: It is unclear where exactly the homestead of Kelborn is located, not even the Empire have been able located them through the deep jungles of Mandalore, but it is a popular belief they are located in The Haran, one of the most dangerous locations of Mandalore where a great deal of Mandalore's most dangerous beasts call home, it is also where the last battle between the Mandalorians and the Republic aid by the Jedi took place during the Mandalorian Excision and it's most costly one with many men and women died on both sides, including Jedi. Thus not many dare wish enter the location or even learn how Clan Kelborn has even learned survive such a place.
Blitz Kelborn: The former Arc Trooper of the Grand Army of the Republic, Blitz was among Clones to be trained by Kelborn's best hunter and scout, Vossk, learning both ways of Mandalorians and that of Trandoshans. Blitz having fought in some of the worst battles of Clone Wars and having bad luck of being a sole survivor, his learn put his skills into use and has used his experience to become a elite Mandalorian warrior. He was also one of the few to remove the Inhibitor chip from his head, including few of his men, thus he was able refuse the order given by Emperor Paplatine though not directly saying it, saving his Jedi General in the process. He has become a respected leader but with advance aging of Clones, it may seem his time might be short.
Vossk Kelborn: An adopted member of the clan, Vossk was taken into the Kelborns after his old Trandoshan clan left him behind when he refused to hunt young Wookiees on Kashyyyk, believing it was cowardly attack those who could not fight, almost leading to his death when his former clanmates attacked and almost killing him. He was nurse by to health by the clan before later joining them, adapting well to his new home of Mandalore. He quickly become their best scout and hunter, using his abilities as a Trandoshan to use. He later become among those to answer the call by Jango Fett to train the Clone Army, he was proud to have help train such great soldiers and even prouder to call some his sons. He continue trains the younger generation of Kelborn and taken in hunting parties in jungles of Mandalore to this day, even rumored he hunts Stormtrooper patrols on Mandalore.
Nima Kelborn: While a young but skilled warrior, Nima has proven herself be a very capable commanding officer and leader on battlefield, even showing ruthless traits. Still despite her harsh and unforgiving nature, she is fair and does care for her family and those she fights alongside, she has learned being a team player can get you far in the galaxy. None the less there is a lot of demand on her for being the direct descendant of the legendary Kelborn, leading her having grow up fast and train herself hard. It has been suggested she's next in line for leadership of the Clan but has shown little interest for it.
Tal'galar Kelborn: While Nima has proven herself be one of Kelborn's most ruthless members, Tal'galar has shown himself be their most bloodthirsty member, a very odd trait say the least within the clan. Much of it is due to his father being from Clan Varad, one of the most bloodthirsty clans in history, while his mother that of Kelborn, thus traits from his father are present. Often known take trophies of his enemies, teeth, weapons, scaples, but despite this fact he also still has Kelborn's strong sense of honor as he will fight those who can fight, finding it be very cowardly attack those weaker then you and does love his family and clan very much. Out of all members of clan, he is most vocal of his dislike towards Gar Saxon, calling him a hut'uunla dar'manda.
