A number of races use a a name that doesn't match what we call them.

When I was writing my KOTOR book, I explained it as if the entire race were a scottish clan. In a Scots clan such as the Kilgour clan, you are say alex Kilgour, but the leader is the Kilgour OF Kilgour.

Since I have just read the Republic Commando books, I am going to change that since Karen Traviss has set the canon by calling their own Mando.

Good spotting. After reading your reply I went back and there were exactly twice I used it in that manner You get a Whatever prize.


'To argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason is as futile as to administer medicine to the dead.' Now who said that?
