2 BBY: The Great Purge was a tragic event in Mandalorian history where the Galactic Empire launched a genocidal campaign against the Mandalorian people. The Empire, under the command of Moff Gideon, hunted down and killed many Mandalorians, and destroyed their cities and strongholds. The Mandalorians, known for their warrior culture and their famous armor, were forced to flee and go into hiding.

The Empire's goal was to suppress Mandalorian culture and traditions and erase their presence in the galaxy. They believed that the Mandalorians posed a threat to their power and control over the galaxy, and saw them as a potential source of rebellion and resistance.

The Great Purge had a profound impact on the Mandalorian people, and many of them went into hiding and lived in secrecy, hoping to one day reclaim their place in the galaxy.

9 ABY: In the aftermath of the Great Purge, Din Djarin, a Mandalorian bounty hunter, finds himself tasked with rescuing a young Force-sensitive child, known as "The Child" or "Grogu." Over time, Din develops a strong bond with the child and decides to adopt him as his own. The two embark on a journey across the galaxy, trying to evade the Empire and other dangerous forces who seek to capture or harm the child.

The Child's presence also rekindles Din's connection to his Mandalorian roots and culture, and he becomes more deeply invested in the fate of his people.

The Darksaber is a powerful and ancient weapon that carries great significance in Mandalorian culture and tradition. Bo-Katan, who had previously been the leader of the Mandalorians, had lost the weapon to Moff Gideon during the Great Purge.

Din helps Bo-Katan and her allies in their quest to reclaim the Darksaber, and in doing so, he helps restore hope to the Mandalorian people and paves the way for their eventual return to the galaxy. The events of these years lay the groundwork for the larger story of the Mandalorian people and their place in the Star Wars universe.
