"Children of the Watch are a cult of religious zealots that broke away from Mandalorian society. Their goal was to reestablish the ancient way."
―A biased Bo-Katan Kryze describes the Children to Din Djarin[3]

The Children of the Watch were[3] an orthodox[8] religion[9] of Mandalorians who followed the Way of the Mandalore. Its adherents were characterized as religious zealots by Lady Bo-Katan Kryze and others in mainstream Mandalorian society, who had abandoned the ancient faith long before the Galactic Civil War.[3] The Children of the Watch were primarily descendants of Death Watch members.[10] Due to being cloistered on Concordia, they survived the Great Purge of Mandalore.[4]

The Tribe were members of the Children of the Watch,[2] but at least one of its members, Din Djarin, was unaware that there was anything unusual about their beliefs and practices. Instead, Djarin believed that all Mandalorians were like them until he met Bo-Katan Kryze and her Mandalorian warriors, Axe Woves and Koska Reeves.[3] Those Mandalorians, Kryze especially, considered the Children of the Watch to be a cult that had greatly contributed to the divided nature and weakness of their people.[6] The Children of the Watch did not follow the custom of the Darksaber, and station or bloodline was not important to them.[11] After spending time with the Children, Kryze decided the Children were not a cult, but simply a group interested in ancient ways of their ancestors.[12] With the reconquest of Mandalore, the Children put aside their obsession with the Way to work with Kryze's forces.[7]

Behind the scenes[]

In the French version of The Mandalorian, Children of the Watch is translated as Les Héritiers de la Death Watch (The Heirs of the Death Watch).[13] Together with the fact that Djarin was raised as a foundling in the Tribe[2] after being rescued from a Separatist attack on Aq Vetina by Death Watch members,[14] and the fact that the Children of the Watch adhered to the Way of the Mandalore and other customs abandoned by the New Mandalorians,[3] this suggests that the Children of the Watch may be an offshoot of the Death Watch. Star Wars 100 Objects later confirmed most survivors of the Night of a Thousand Tears were descendants of Death Watch.[10]
