Veshok trees were a species of slow-growing, large, evergreen trees. native to the Outer Rim world of Mandalore. Veshok trees grew in abundance on Mandalore, and sprawling veshok forests covered most of Mandalore’s northern hemisphere.
Veshok Clan, formed in 2007, chose this tree as their namesake due to the similarity to the evergreens that cover both Mississippi and Louisiana, both states that the clan covers. Currently the clan has 16 ‘Official’ members. These are members who have had their costumes approved by the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club per the CRLs. In addition to these members they have upwards of 20 ‘Unofficial’ members currently working on armor.
We are a non-profit group with the purpose to bring a galaxy far, far, away to our local communities and giving back to our communities however we can such as charity events, and to share the enthusiasm of Star Wars costuming. We are available for public and private events. Yearly we coordinate charity events with multiple organizations including, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, The Alzheimer’s Foundation, USA Women’s and Children’s, St. Baldricks and Autism Awareness
We are always looking to grow our ‘family’ of Mercs and we hope all of our fans will visit us on Facebook and on the Mandalorian Mercs forums and get started on a set of armor of their own!
