"The divisions between the Faithful and the Faithless split every clan: members of the Ordos, Fetts, Kryzes, Awauds, Priests, Gedycs, and, yes, Vizslas, belonged to both sides in our struggle."
Tor Vizsla[src]

Clan Priest was a Mandalorian clan. Following the rise of the peaceful New Mandalorian faction in the aftermath of the Mandalorian Excision, members of Clan Priest were divided in their support of the pacifist sect and the traditional warrior clans.[2]

When Mand'alor Jango Fett was hand picking training sergeants to instruct the clone commandos of the Grand Army of the Republic, among the seventy-five Mandalorians Fett chose was Dred Priest. Priest was a violent, brutal man who abused the clone soldiers in his charge under the belief that it would toughen them. By 19 BBY, Dred Priest had joined the radical Death Watch group, together with his lover Isabet Reau. During an unexpected confrontation with fellow Mandalorian soldier Mij Gilamar in Keldabe, capital city of the planet Mandalore, Priest was killed by Gilamar due to his Death Watch affiliations. His body was subsequently dumped into the Kelita River.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Clan Priest was first alluded to with the appearance of Dred Priest in the novel Order 66: A Republic Commando Novel, written by author Karen Traviss and published September 16, 2008. However, it was only with the 2013 release of the bounty hunter reference book, The Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett, that Clan Priest truly entered Star Wars canon.
