Boba Fett

Biographical information

Physical description

Chronological and political information

"Are you Mandalorian?"
"I'm a simple man making his way through the galaxy. Like my father before me."
―Din Djarin and Boba Fett[src]

Boba Fett, an unaltered clone of the famed Mandalorianbounty hunterJango Fett, was a humanmale bounty hunter whose career spanned decades, from the fall of the Galactic Republic to the rise of the Galactic Empire. Fett emulated his father and geneticdonor by wearing a customized suit of Mandalorian armor. His personal starship was the Slave I., a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft that once belonged to Jango. Trained in combat and martial skills from a young age, Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy during the reign of Emperor Palpatine. He became a legend over the course of his career, which included contracts for both the Empire and the extensive criminal underworld.

Boba was created on the planetKamino as a result of an arrangement between the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus and Jango Fett, a Mandalorian foundling who served as the template of the Grand Army of the Republic. Unlike the clone troopers grown from Jango's DNA, Jango regarded Boba as his son. During the last days of the Separatist Crisis, Boba and Jango retreated to Geonosis where the latter was killed in battle by Jedi MasterMace Windu. Orphaned by Jango's death, Boba sought vengeance by attempting to assassinate Windu, although his plan proved unsuccessful. After serving time in prison on Coruscant, Fett took up his late father's profession as a bounty hunter, working alongside other mercenaries such as Bossk, Dengar, and Asajj Ventress.

In the aftermath of the Clone Wars, Fett continued to make a name for himself while working for the HuttgangsterJabba Desilijic Tiure as well as the SithLordDarth Vader. During the Galactic Civil War, Fett transported Captain Han Solo to Jabba's Palace on Tatooine. He tried to prevent Solo's rescue by the Alliance to Restore the Republic, only to fall into the Great Pit of Carkoon when Solo accidentally slammed a pole into Fett's jetpack. Although Fett survived his ordeal with the man-eating sarlacc, his armor was sold to Cobb Vanth by Jawascavengers. He eventually regained it by confronting Din Djarin, the Mandalorian who took Fett's armor from Vanth. After helping Djarin to rescue the foundling Grogu, Fett returned to Tatooine where he killed Bib Fortuna and claimed the late Jabba's throne with Fennec Shand by his side.

Biography

Creation and early life

"Apart from his pay, which is considerable, Fett demanded only one thing: an unaltered clone for himself. Curious, isn't it? "
"Unaltered?"
"Pure genetic replication. No tampering with the structure to make it more docile and no growth acceleration.
"
―Lama Su and Obi-Wan Kenobi, about Boba Fett's creation[src]

Following the Battle of Naboo, an extensive clone army was secretly commissioned on Kamino by Jedi MasterSifo-Dyas,[5] who believed it would be necessary in order to ensure the protection of the Galactic Republic.[10] The army, however, was part of a Sith plot to overthrow the Republic and destroy the Jedi Order.[11] Prior to the creation process, Mandalorian[12]bounty hunterJango Fett was recruited by the Sith LordDarth Tyranus. Jango was to be the genetic template for the clone army. Jango agreed to become the genetic template for a considerable payment, as well as one request: the creation of a clone who did not have the same genetic modifications, such as behavioral conditioning and growth acceleration. The Kaminoan scientists created Boba Fett[5] in 32 BBY shortly after the Battle of Naboo.[2] Although he was born a clone, Boba regarded Jango as his father, who likewise viewed the boy as his son.[13] He was also the first of many clones modeled on the Jango Fett template.[14]

As a child, Boba was raised on Kamino by his father, who taught his cloned son many of the skills Jango had learned as a bounty hunter. Boba learned survival and martial skills and became proficient with a blaster as a child.[1] He also learned how to command and operate the weapon systems on his father's ship, Slave I., and became familiar with members of the Kaminoan government.[5]

Trained by Jango Fett

"This is my son, Boba. He'll be helping us on this job. Part of training."
―Jango Fett[src]

Boba and Jango Fett alongside Neelda, Rinn, and Tiver were hired by a male Twi'lek to capture his daughter and bring her back alive. When they all finally captured the Twi'lek girl on planet Ord Mantell, Tiver and Rinn threatened to kill Boba, unless Fett gave up the Twi'lek girl. Eventually, Boba shot and killed Tiver and Rinn. Neelda complemented Boba afterward. Boba was soon about to kill Neelda but saw that he was not part of the Tiver and Rinn. Boba then let Neelda escape and run away. Fett and Boba later boarded their starship, Slave I., with the Twi'lek girl to deliver her back to her father. As they traveled, Boba and his father discussed how he had preformed during the mission, with Jango believing Boba now had a great start to his legacy.[15]

Escape from Kamino

"Get him, dad! Get him! Fire!"
―Boba, during his father's fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

Shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jango was sent on a mission to assassinate
