Clan Lok was a Mandalorian clan in existence prior to the start of the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Artus Lok was a member of the clan, who went on to claim the title of Mand'alor, the traditional leader of the Mandalorian clans, after challenging and killing the previous Mand'alor. During the Cold War, Artus, now called Mandalore the Vindicated, offered the latest Grand Champion of the Great Hunt into Clan Lok. The Champion gladly accepted.
During the Eternal Empire conquest on the galaxy, Clan Lok met them head on and fought against the invaders. But they were hit hard by the Eternal Empire and Mandalore the Vindicated fell in battle, killed by swarms of skytroopers. The Clan scattered soon after, and despite Mandalore the Avenger's plan to assault the Eternal Empire's factory on Darvannis to help rearm themselves, Mirli Lok disagreed with her plan and convinced others to break off from Vizla's leadership, forming the Ash'ad. They would then go to Onderon in order to hunt the dangerous beasts of the world in pursuit of honor and glory.
