Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.


Canderous was a veteran Mandalorian soldier who fought in the Mandalorian Wars against the forces of the Old Republic. After the defeat of the Mandalorian clans, Canderous came to be employed as an enforcer for a crime lord named Davik Kang on the planet of Taris. When the Sith blockaded the planet, Ordo decided it was time to move on. Assisting Revan in stealing the Ebon Hawk from its current owners, Canderous escaped the planet. Canderous followed Revan in his goals, despite often disagreeing with his choices during the course of his plans.

When Revan left for the Unknown Regions, he knew he could not take any of his friends with him: the path ahead would doom all he cared about. Ordering Canderous to unite the scattered remnants of the Mandalorians, he soon took on the name and position as Mandalore, leader of the Mandalorians. He set up a base on Dxun, a small moon orbiting Onderon. Canderous as the Mandalore Enlarge Canderous as the Mandalore

Only a select few knew Canderous was the new Mandalore: some time after leaving Revan, Canderous had sealed himself in a full-body suit of armor. It was rumored that he never took off this armor. While it seems Canderous did this to avoid his people realizing their leader was allied with Revan, comments from Kreia imply that there was a second reason for his actions: Canderous did not wish to see his face, the face of a man Revan abandoned. Five years after the end of the second Sith War, Canderous returned to the galactic scene when he pledged himself and his warriors to the service of the Jedi Exile, much as Mandalore the Indomitable had done with Exar Kun decades before.

Canderous is a true warrior, and although some would call him a fanatic, or even a murderer, he is bound by his honour and the pressures of the militaristic Mandalorian way of life. Canderous is always impressed by a show of force, and is an advocate of fighting before diplomacy. He respects Revan for his attack on the Mandalorian fleet and feels no regret or anger about being bested by a clearly superior foe.

Based on predictions by the nebulous Force-user Kreia, Canderous goes on to many other battles after the events of The Sith Lords. In these battles, Revan's reasoning behind his order to Canderous is explained: in ordering Canderous to reunite the Mandalorians, they would be remembered for thousands of years to come. It can be argued that without Canderous's battles after the events of The Sith Lords, the Mandalorians would not have been remembered as strong, honorable warriors - and without that legacy, there would have been no need for Jango Fett (and, later, Boba Fett) to become the deadly warriors their lives shaped them into.

In the game his voice is provided by John Cygan, who has often provided the voice for Dash Rendar in other Star Wars games.
