I always figured the Mandrill Bloodnames will be scattered and split.  Like ALL of the Homies have a Sainze or two.  Or Payne is a Coyote name.

With their ultra aggressive nature could these mandrill bloodnames become successful enough to reestablish their blood houses ?

Technically as long as there are warriors alive of a bloodhouse and someone is using the genetic material for breeding then the bloodhouse doesn't need to be reestablished. Wars of Reaving left things a little uncertain on that front. The Clan and the Kindraa are gone (a portion of Matilla-Carrol on Niles was absorbed by the Spirits in 3073, the remains of Faraday-Tanaga on Atreus in 3073 were also absorbed by the Spirits)

The one thing the Mandrils were good at was fighting. They built up their Tourman by the same way the similarity economically crippled Jaguars did; by being good at beating people up and taking their stuff.

Did the mandrills from say the two Aero focused kindraa ever develop a colonization arm?

Question - the members of Clan Spaniel are said to be drawn from various species that the Clans view as pets, so as not to give offense to any Clan.  However, the bad guys of the show are the five tribes of Evil Monkeys.  How would a member of Clan Fire Mandrill view the persistent use of monkeys in the cultural villain role, given that the Mandrill is classified as the largest of the various monkey species?  Are they okay with it as long as the "evil monkeys" don't have striped noses and other Mandrill characteristics?

None that was ever mentioned but that is not saying much. Despite Mick-Kreese having a Potemkin, no clan besides Blood Spirit ever sought to really colonize their adjacent space. Which is very strange because there is a such a huge gap between the Kerensky Cluster and Pentagon Worlds, really that area should be filled with orbitals or semi-habitable worlds. I think the Clans' low population and top down nature never really gave them much incentive to look for better worlds to colonize.

We don't know that they were. This might have been an impetus for trials against the Sharks or whoever was responsible for that broadcast.

I can assume Gorilla as Elementals, Orangutan as Scientists and Chips as Mechwarriors, all with Mandrill stripes, but the " Evil Monkeys : might be more these?

There are apparently six evil monkey tribes.  (A white tribe was added after the 3053 season, led by a monkey king with an eyepatch.)  The others are blue, red, yellow, green, and purple.  Given their enmity to the Spaniels, they often deploy large numbers of Fleas.

Per field manual updates: task force serpent was left with with several badly damaged but possible my still serviceable jag warships which they scuttled. Due to their independent nature could a kindraa have attempted to fight for and claim these wrecks?

I wonder if they were even aware. Damaged warships are costly to repair and for a resource strapped Clan like the Mandrills would impose a major burden for little benefit. It could even be claimed by a rival Kindraa once completed for a net loss. It would be different if they could outmatch a peer like the Hellions (with their McKenna) or Blood Spirits but one or two Jaguar Warships will hardly move the needle.

They could have, but what to do with thiese spacehulks? Mandrills did not have the naval yards to repair them.
