- Strengths & Weaknesses:
[+]Mandalorian: The Yalilyr, or hunters, are Mandalorians to the bone. These are men and women who were born and raised within the traditions. They are exceptionally skilled in combat and strategy, each one capable of taking on Jedi, Sith, and any other elite warrior that cross their paths. They are extremely skilled combatants and know their way around most weaponry. They are also exceptionally observant, whatchful of everyone and everything around them.
[+]Loyal: The men and women who join this group are specifically chosen by Aryn to be as loyal as possible. Many of them come from Clan Spar or allies of Clan Spar and served Ra in the first part of his reign. The men and women of Yalilyr participated within the Crusades, and when the true Mand'alor returned they did not hesitate to unite beneath his claim. The Yalilyr are extremely loyal to Ra and Death Watch.
[-]Strong Personalities: As one might expect, members of the Yalilyr are extremely touchy about their honor, who they serve, and what they are expected to do. These soldiers do not take well to outsiders, even less so to taking orders from people they deem "below" them. They are an effective group, but its clear that they only listen to two or three people total, and even then will sometimes argue. The Yalilyr are not blindly loyal soldiers, but instead serve those who they see as worthy.
[-]Not Versatile: Founded for a specific purposes, the Yalilyr have no specialists among them. The men and women within this group are soldiers, trackers, and that's about it. None of them are exceptional pilots, slicers, or engineers. As such they are not suited to being an invading force or army, but rather are strictly held to their position as defenders of Mand'alor and the upper tiers of Death Watch.
With the recent rash of assassination attempts on both the life of True Mand'alor Ra Vizsla and his Lieutenant Aryn Spar, it was deemed necessary that a guard be formed.
Being Mandalorian, and thus being grand combatants in it of themselves, neither Aryn nor Ra wished for any true 'guard' to constantly be surrounding them. Instead what they created would be something else. The Yalilyr were founded shortly after Ra's declaration of his return, not to serve as a true Guard, but instead to scour out those who would strike at Death Watch.
In Mandoa'd 'Yalilyr' means Hunters, and that is what they are.
Created for the sole purpose of tracking and hunting would be assassins that strike at Death Watch.
Members of the Yalilyr do not stand around Ra or any Lieutenant for the entire day. They do not attempt to shield their charges with their bodies, nor do they hurry them along inside. Instead the Yalilyr seek out those who would strike at their leaders. When an attempt is made the Yalilyr seek out their prey instantly, utilizing their skills to track and find whomever struck at Death Watch.
Having been trained since birth, the Yalilyr are excellent warriors and trackers, well suited for their task within Death Watch.
