Biography

Early years in the First Mandalorian Civil War

"I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the Universe," Jango Fett Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Jango Fett unmasked.

Fett was adopted into a warrior culture called the Mandalorians. He was orphaned on the planet of Concord Dawn, when his family was killed by a faction of Mandalorians called the Death Watch. Jango was a young boy when the war between the True Mandalorians, led by Jaster Mereel, and a traitorous scion of their ranks, the Death Watch, led by Vizsla, began. Fett was taken in by the Mandalorian leader after he helped the True Mandalorians escape from his family's farm, when the Death Watch set fire to the fields. Jaster trained Jango to be a strong warrior, and Jaster was later killed by Vizsla, the leader of the Death Watch. Jango Fett became the new Mandalore, and avenged Jaster Mereel's death. Later while fighting to suppress a popular revolt in the Galidraan system, the Mandalorians ran afoul of the Jedi Knights who wiped out most of the Mandalorians and delivered the survivors to the governor of Galidraan. Fett became a slave but he used the next couple of years in prison to regain his strength and plot his eventual escape. He then exacted revenge on his captors, reclaimed the Mandalorian armor, destroyed the Death Watch, and faced off against Visla in a one-on-one showdown, resulting in Visla being eaten alive by two Dire-cats. He then set off on his own as a bounty hunter.

Ascension as a bounty hunter

Jango soon became very famous for his accomplishments throughout the galaxy, not least of which are the Jedi he killed during the final Mandalorian wars. Despite this, he typically presented himself as just 'a simple man trying to make his way in the universe.' Shortly before the beginning of the Clone Wars, Fett accepted a mission to retrieve an idol for an unnamed employer, possibly a Sith lord. Shortly after completing the assignment (which was made more complicated by Zam Wesell), Jango learned the idol could cause a chain reaction in the Force, and would be used by the unnamed client to destroy Coruscant. Fett left Kamino to stop the horrible plot. On Coruscant, he and Zam worked with Yarael Poof, the Jedi Council member, to stop the client, who was exposed as Ashaar Khorda, a former general. Poof was killed in the process, but their attempt was successful. At Poof's funeral, Mace Windu commented that whoever Poof's unknown ally was, he or she was a hero. In an ironic twist of fate, Windu himself would be the one to slay Fett in battle at a later time. Jedi Knights and Jedi Knight redirect here. ...

Conspiracy with the Sith Lords

Jango Fett battles Obi-Wan Kenobi

Around the time of the Battle of Naboo, Jango was contacted by a man named Darth Tyranus ,also known as Count Dooku, who offered him a bounty on his former padawan apprentice, Komari Vosa, who was leader of the Bando Gora. Fett helped the system Dooku was running for independence. Though Jango had to compete with Montross, a former Mandalorian traitor who had killed his Toydarian partner, Roz, he succeeded in defeating Vosa, partly with the help of a new ally, a novice bounty hunter named Zam Wesell, and along the way, he killed Montross by allowing him to be torn apart by vicious Bando Gora.

Tyranus was impressed; the bounty was a test to determine which was the better bounty hunter. In addition to the bounty on Vosa(5 million Republic Credits), Tyranus offered Jango a very large sum of money for an unusual task: Jango would be the template for an army of clones, which would become the Army of the Republic. Jango agreed, and soon millions of clones were created in his likeness at the cloning facilities on Kamino. Fett, however, requested that one clone not be subjected to growth enhancement or personality alteration, so that Jango could raise him as a son and pass on his elite training. His wish was granted- the clone was made for him, and was named Boba Fett. Contrary to his claims, Jango was aware that Tyranus is also former Jedi Master Count Dooku, the Separatist leader.

Jango did not fully retire from his career, but he took fewer jobs, and on Kamino, where he raised Boba in the Mandalorian ways, he assisted the Kaminoans in developing training programs for the clone troopers. Their armor was even based on the Mandalorian armor Jango wore. —Obi-wan Kenobi Kamino is a world in the fictional Star Wars universe. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Ten years after the cloning process began, Jango was hired to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala for plotting against the creation of the Army of the Republic. The mission failed, and Jango was forced to kill his partner, Zam Wesell, to keep his identity secret. Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi traced one of Jango's weapons, a saberdart, to Kamino, where he learned of the clone army, of which the Jedi have been previously unaware. Jango and Kenobi initially met on civil terms, but when Kenobi tried to intercept Jango for further questioning, they grappled in a seesawing duel until Kenobi was dangling from a walkway on Jango's whip cord. Kenobi eventually swung himself up onto a nearby walkway, and found his way back to where Jango was landed. Kenobi eventually returned to watch Jango escape in the Slave I, but was able to place a tracking device on the ship. Later Jango would face off in a short space battle with Kenobi in the asteroids above Geonosis. Jango, with his extraordinary piloting skills, was able to gain the upper hand on Kenobi. Jango then launched a volley of shots at Kenobi damaging his Delta-7 Starfighter. With an end in sight, Jango launched a tracking missile at Kenobi's damaged ship. Kenobi was quick to react by releasing spare parts, which caused Jango's missile to prematurely detonate, leading both Jango and Boba Fett to believe that the explosion and debris were a sign of destruction from Obi-Wan Kenobi's Starfighter.

Pursuit and confrontation

Jango Fett in action

Jango and Boba escaped from Kenobi, again believing him to be out of the picture, and landed safely on Geonosis. Kenobi, however, survived the contest and tracked them, eventually witnessing a meeting of Separatist leaders, where he learned that Jango was in league with Count Dooku, the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Kenobi was soon captured, accused and sentenced to death in the arena for espionage, as well as Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, who had come to rescue Kenobi. Count Dooku, Nute Gunray, Gilramos Libkath, Jango, and Boba were then allowed to watch the executions from Geonosian Archduke Poggle the Lesser's private viewing box.

Before the three spies could be executed, the ceremony was disrupted by the arrival of Mace Windu and a large number of other Jedi; a battle erupted between the Jedi and the CIS battle droids. Jango attacked Windu with his flamethrower, forcing the Jedi Master to retreat to the arena floor. Jango refrained from joining the melee, staying in the viewing box to guard Dooku; he even killed Jedi Council member Coleman Trebor by firing a volley of blasts at him that were too great for his skills to defend himself as he attempted to attack Dooku. Eventually he joined the battle; flying down into the arena, he engaged Windu, but the confrontation was quickly interrupted by an enraged Reek, which trampled Jango before he was able to finally get clear and kill it with a single precisely aimed shot to the snout.

Fett then turned to face off against the Jedi Master again, but he failed to notice that his jetpack and linked flamethrower, which drew from the same fuel source had been severely damaged by the Reek. Left with only one of his two Westar-34 blaster pistols, a broken jetpack and a disabled flamethrower as well, Jango was able to fire off a few menacing shots before Windu decapitated him with a swift swipe of his lightsaber.


Ironically, shortly after Jango's death at the hands of Windu, the clone army he had helped create arrived to rescue the three spies and surviving Jedi, and began the Battle of Geonosis, which sparked the Clone Wars.

Legacy

Jango never lived to see his clones participate in the Clone Wars, which tore the galaxy apart and cleared the way for the Galactic Empire. Boba continued his bounty hunting legacy, using his father's weapons and ship, as well as using the suit of Mandalorian armor once worn by Jaster Mereel to avenge his father's death and attempting to assassinate Windu on Coruscant.

Neither Jango nor Boba had any real preference or affiliation with the Empire (or the Confederacy), only doing what pays well, although it is implied in the Expanded Universe that Boba and Vader were pseudo-friends.

Jango's body was buried on Geonosis, the planet he died on during the Clone Wars. Boba Fett regularly visits the grave out of respect and love for his father. Boba replaced him at this point and worked for Darth Tyranus. Boba also often visits the Jango Fett Arena, erected on Tatooine in honor of Jango.
