Mandalorian Armor Color Significance
« on: November 14, 2007, 12:49:18 AM »
Okay according to True Colors every armor color has a meaning. Other than Black (Justice) or Sand Gold (Vengeance), what do all of the colors mean?

Green, as in Munin Skirata's armor(which Bardan is wearing these days), means duty. None of the others are referenced canonically yet.

I was fairly certain they also mentioned what Red was in the book, but then again, the ones I remembered being listed are all up there, so maybe not.

Ordo's Mando armor is red, and....*tilts head* Mereel? has blue, but they both specified that was because they liked the colors. :D

Would that mean Delta's squad's armour colours had a meaning?

I doubt it, Delta's considerably non-Mando at this point.

So what do we think purple armor means?

Yes Skirata's is Vengence. If you look at his personality it fits. He wants to get revenge on Ko Sai for what she did to the Nulls.

Black - justice, sand gold - vengeance, green - duty, red - honoring a father, and blue - reliability.  I think those are all canon, but don't take my word for red and blue until we find out for sure.  I heard there will be some more colors in Karen Traviss's next Legacy of the Force book.  Keep in mind, however, that it doesnt really matter what color you choose for your armor - it doesn't have to mean what it does up above, it's all personal, just like Ord'ika and Mer'ika.

Red and blue as honoring a father and reliability are both good, as is grey for mourning a lost love. Ka'ra got an email back from Traviss on the matter.

Since I don't think the list has made it here...

Quote
KT gave us a list that won't exist till Febuary with Revelation. A list of Armor colours and meanings.

Gray = Mourning a Lost Love
Red = Honoring a Father
Black = Justice
Gold = Vengeance
Green = Duty
Blue = Reliability

She will make more as they come up in stories.

Gold star to Ta'vode for asking her. ;D


And I repeat here as well as on Ka'ra.....

1) Why is Hokan's red?

and 2) ....isn't Jango's armor grey?

uh, you see this is what i hate about star wars. Because of this new thing about armor color having a significance, people are gonna get all worked up about why Boba, Jango, Jaster, Montross, Hokan and a bunch of other Mando wear the color armor they wear. The people who created/designed these characters just chose the armor color for no other reason than because that is what they wanted them to wear. But now with this new idea about color meaning, you gotta back-track and come up with half-baked explanations for why those characters had those colors.

It is just like the same crap that happened with the fighting styles of the Jedi/Sith. When KOTORII came along and introduced the different fighting forms, people went apeshit trying to figure out what forms Anakin, Yoda, Dooku, Kenobi, Maul and all the others used. The bottom line is that Lucas did give a damn about fighting forms, they didn't exist at the time. He just wanted the fights to look awesome (which they do) and hired a swordsman to teach the actors specific fighting routines that look cool, and thats it. There is nothing more too it. Same with colored beskar, its just cosmetic!

Correct. It does say in the Mando guide that although the colors do have significance, some Mando's wear a color simply because they like it. In the last issue of Star Wars Insider, there is a blip on the Kamino landing pad where Obi Wan and Jango first duled. In the blurb it states that George Lucas originally intended for Jango's armor to be white... eluding to him being progenator of the Stormtroopers. However, when GL saw the unfinished armor with only the aluminum powder coat on it he liked it so much he choose to leave it silver.

If you don't like Retconning, JP, no one's demanding you pay attention to it. I, however, like going "ooh, what's the significance of ----?" so I don't intend to withdraw my question about Jango's armor color.

And I'll remind everyone that Hokan is TRAVISS' character. So it's pretty safe to assume she picked red for a reason. Why?

I was thinking, isn't Jaing's armour grey in LOTF?

Yes, his armor is described as grey with Kamino-skin gloves. This is how I envisioned him...

what i'm saying is, does Jaing have a late girlfriend/spouse we don't know about, or is his choice of Beskar'gam colours purely cosmetic?

Maybe Jaing's promise to the Twi'lek wasn't for Laseema/Atin after all?

Probably Kal.  there is no way he'd still be around by LotF period....unless he is about 120 years old.  It just says loved one, not spouse/girlfriend.

for that matter, what do the colors yellow, violet, and white mean?  lol, I don't want to know what puce is...."it means *vomit* I'm sick to my stomach...."

I agree with H-Bomb on that one. I think red would definatly be the color if Jaing were honoring Kal'buir. Now, based on TC where Ordo and Mereel wore red and blue because they liked teh colors, that leaves the possiblity that Jaing wears grey for teh same reason. However, I don't buy that. I think he either lost a spouse or a child.

Yep, sometimes it's nothing more then personal preference and sometimes its about your mission in life, like Kal said of his gold armor.  It could also be about honoring a family member by wearing a piece of their armor, or spoils of war in the case of Fi.  You never really know with Mandos 'till you ask.

My color schem is most black and white but my helmet is about 4 colors which is black,white,red,grey which it was going to be just black and white due to a group i was apart of that was starting a unit called the white ravens and they was basing it off of i think the legacy but since i don't have anything to do with that group i just had to be normal mando which i'm being a super commando ranger , for most because in the u.s. army i'm a ranger by trade so i think this suits me for what i am. funny thing i was gonna add a fin to my helmet but i decided not to i could always use a clone trooper helmet which has 1 i just have to paint the color scheme on that if need too. besides i'm making 1 of them helmets into the new army camoflage.

This topic seems kind of finished. Maybe a new question is in order?

If I may:
What color(s) would your armor be and why?

Black for justice. I love it!

on the Jango color subject, we could safely assume that his color are Grey (silver) and blue.

He´s reliable to the max. that´s the blue color on him. easy to figure out  and Skirata once said that Jango was desperately in want of a son and even mentions something about his family or something.

Mourn also means loss, and KT said that colour could be taken to signify that in a simple way, so perhaps Jango felt he was Missing something at not being a father (Like all regular Mando´ade are) or feeling at loos at not having a family or a son to raise as his own.

This is just my logical assumptions of course. but in my head it makes sense.

Black and Grey. Justice and Mourning. Justice for the clones, aka Skirata standpoint, Mourning for the clones's lifespans.



Who'da thunk it? I thought it was just a neat color scheme.

i personally believe that White would mean doing what you believe is right. just my personal opinion. although the clones had white armor doesn't mean that they were doing what they believed was right even though most did. it was more that that was what was given to them.

im pretty sure that some color stands for doing what you believe is right and i personally think it would be white. i think that yellow would stand for hope because it is brighter and hope is usually imagined as somethin like a sun which from our veiw on earth is yellow. the imperials didnt give mots shebs about color significance

Yeah, but as good as it is or can be, it'll never be official.  (Unless someone official makes it official...)  It doesn't make an impact on future SW stuff, it'll never show up in a book or game...so that definitely detracts from fanon's awesomeness.

True. Compare Xander's works to, say, Jar Jar.

True. But fanon is what you think it should be like. It gives you the sense that you control something in the SW galaxy. Especially if you make up your own character.
