- Classification: Heavy Cavalry
- Description: The Orar'uram Riders is an accurate name as this unit is a duo of Mandalorians riding the fearsome Orar'uram warbeasts of Clan Bral who reach sizes that rival that of medium tanks. With winged jetpacks and power lances, these Mandalorians ride atop the massive fire-breathing bears headlong into battle as heavy cavalry and support.
- Unit Size: Small (2)
- Unit Availability: Rare
- Unit Experience: Elite
- Combat Function: The Orar'uram Riders charge into enemy lines of vehicles and infantry alike, ripping them to shreds or disabling them with claw and power lance. The Orar'uram focuses on primarily destroying vehicles while the rider focuses on keeping infantry and others off the Orar'uram. With immense strength and durability the pair wade into heavy combat and leave destruction in their wake.
- Orar'uram: The beasts that this unit utilizes are of a breed genetically engineered for war. The Orar'uram themselves are huge, fire-breathing bears who are covered in durable layers of muscle and blaster resistant fur. Additionally, this unit retains all the benefits of the Orar'uram species.
- Elite Training: The riders are equally impressive with a mastery over mounted combat and the versatility of their gear allows them to adapt to dismounted combat as well.
- Orar'uram: The Orar'uram, while fire resistant, dislike fire and can be driven away or for the rider to lose control with focused fire from flamethrowers. This unit has all the weaknesses that are also associated with the Orar'uram species.
- Collateral: The Orar'uram, despite the best intentions, are large beasts who can easily cause nearby allies to become caught in their sweeping attacks.
The Orar'uram Riders are the combat unit within the Bral Militia, headed by Valdus Bral, who utilize the genetically engineered war-bears as combat mounts. After the Orar'uram were provided to Valdus Bral, he went to work gathering those with mounted combat training and had them train with their Orar'uram in the jungles of Myrkr. There the Mandalorians and Orar'uram learned how to work together, trust each other, and recognize the needs of the other. While the Orar'uram are terrifying war machines, they are loyal guardians and companions, they must be treated with respect and be given time to rest as all living things must. For now the Orar'uram and their riders stand guard at the clan Bral compound on Mandalore, waiting for their deployment.
On the battlefield the Orar'uram riders take the role of cavalry and heavy support for the rest of the militia and allied forces. They are equally capable of combating infantry, light, and medium vehicles. Untested though they are, they hold great promise.
