Mahnde was an un-Blooded Yautja and a member of Dachande's clan. He took part in an initiation Hunt on Ryushi. However, when the group's ship was accidentally destroyed by Dr. Kesar Revna and their leaders incapacitated, the remaining students found themselves stranded, leaderless and facing both the Xenomorphs they had seeded and hostile humans from the colony of Prosperity Wells. The debacle ultimately led to the death of the entire Yautja party.
Mahnde was killed by colonist defenders during a failed attack on Prosperity Wells.
Mahnde was one of three trouble-makers, the other two being Ghardeh and Tichinde. According to the book, he was short for a predator. He goes with Tichinde after Dachande is injured and near death, becoming a bad blood with the rest of the group as they assail unarmed Humans and their children. He is killed while under Tichinde's lead, something the larger Yautja spits at.
Personality and Traits
Mahnde was described as a troublemaker, although Dachande chalked this up to him being a follower and doing so to the wrong crowd: Tichinde and Ghardeh, specifically.
