Vode An, meaning "Brothers All", was an ancient Mandalorian war chant sung in Mando'a. Notably, before the start of the Clone Wars, Jango Fett would personally train the first batch of Alpha class ARC troopers for the Republic on Kamino. Fett instilled these clones with Mandalorian values, including having each clone memorize the Vode An. Other clones, including Clone Commandos, were taught the Vode An by their various Mandalorian trainers. This group of Mandalorians were brought to Kamino on Jango's request to train many of the more advanced clones, they were known as the Cuy'val Dar.The song refers to them(The Mandalorians or The Clones) as the “Wrath of Coruscant” which has a dual meaning since they were being used by the Republic and Coruscant was the original home world of the Mandalorians. The chant was famously sung by the clone troopers with the accompaniment of drums and horns.

LyricsEdit

Mando'aEdit

Kote!
Kandosii sa ka'rta, Vode an.
Coruscanta a'den mhi, Vode an.
Bal kote, darasuum kote,
Jorso'ran kando a tome.
Sa kyr'am nau tracyn kad, Vode an.
Kandosii sa ka'rta, Vode an.
Coruscanta a'den mhi, Vode an.
Bal...
Motir ca'tra nau tracinya.
Gra'tua cuun hett su dralshy'a.
Aruetyc talyc runi'la solus cet o'r.
Motir ca'tra nau tracinya.
Gra'tua cuun hett su dralshy'a.
Aruetyc talyc runi'la trattok'o.
Sa kyr'am nau tracyn kad, Vode an!

BasicEdit

Glory!
One indomitable heart, Brothers all.
We, the wrath of Coruscant, Brothers all.
And glory, eternal glory,
We shall bear its weight together.
Forged like the saber in the fires of death, Brothers all.

One indomitable heart, Brothers all.
We, the wrath of Coruscant, Brothers all.
And...
Those who stand before us light the night sky in flame.
Our vengeance burns brighter still.
Every last traitorous soul shall kneel.
Those who stand before us light the night sky in flame.
Our vengeance burns brighter still.
Every last traitorous soul shall fall.
Forged like the saber in the fires of death, Brothers all!

Behind the scenesEdit

Vode An is heard throughout several parts of the 2005 video game Star Wars: Republic Commando, including the main menu and several battle sequences. In 2016 the song, along with several other pieces of music from Republic Commando, would be reused for the Mandalorian-centric "Chapter XIV: Mandalore's Revenge" of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire.
