Clan Skirata rose to power roughly 5800 years ago, during the days of the Old Republic and Emperor Palaptine’s, aka Darth Sidious, Galactic Empire. Kal Skirata brought together many renegade elite clone troopers, fallen Jedi, and other deserters, as well as their wives and children, on Mandalore. He officially adopted at least twenty sons, daughters and grandchildren during this time, and may have adopted more in following years. This large family would continue to grow, through marriages, births and further adoptions creating one of the largest and more powerful Clans in the Mandalorian Empire. The Clan continued to grow over the millennia further increasing its power and resources to include a few Mandalorian fleets, a couple colony settlements and a very large fortress compounds on Mandalore, still simply called Kyrimorut, but now is the size of a small town, and operated about as such as a headquarters for the Clan. The Skirata clan was always had close ties with the Mandalore, starting back during Palpatine’s Empire when they served and even saved the life of Mandalore Boba Fett. Since then there have been several Skirata Mandalore’s and often work as direct generals or bodyguards, or both, for the current Mandalore. The Skirata Clan had kept up amicable ties with the other larger Mandalorian clans including Clan Ordo (which has recently regained a lot of its former glory from almost 10,000 years ago), Clan Fett (which has been in decline for almost a thousand years), Clan Bevinn, and recently Clan Taan (a smaller but growing clan), among others. Clan Skirata is constantly looking for ways to increase its power and presence in the galaxy and in doing so, increase the might of the Mandalorian Empire.
