Jango Fett's History

Jango Fett was born in the years prior to the Invasion of Naboo. He claimed to have been born on the planet Concord Dawn, a Mandalorian world, but his exact history was unknown. Fett's history being a mystery was the way he liked it, but he did wear Mandalorian armor. However, despite his possession of the armor, officials of Mandalore disavowed any connection to Fett, claiming he was simply a bounty hunter who somehow stole an artifact from their planet's troubled past.[8] However, Fett's armor itself was fashioned from durasteel alloy, while most Mandalorian armor was made from beskar. However, in most other respects it was the same as the gear that had been designed hundreds of years prior.

Fett rose to the top of the bounty hunting trade, where he used his advanced armor and twin blaster pistols to hunt down fugitives. At some point in his career Fett began to work with Zam Wesell, and she became his sometime partner. At one point Jango Fett was also an associate of pirate captain, Hondo Ohnaka, and fellow bounty hunter, Aurra Sing. Ultimately, Fett became widely regarded as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy, but this notoriety eventually drew the attention of the Sith. Contracted by Darth Tyranus to be the donor for a clone army, Fett asked for an unaltered clone to raise as a son in addition to his normal fee. Jango was living on Kamino at the time of 22 BBY, supervising the training of the new Clone Troopers when he was hired by Tyranus once more to assasinate Senator Padme Amidala. When the mission went sideways, Fett was forced to kill his partner Zam Wessell to prevent her from giving him away. Tracked to Kamino by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Fett battled the Jedi before escaping to Geonosis with his son Boba. When Mace Windu led a group of 200 Jedi Knight to the planet to rescue Kenobi, Amidala, and Anakin Skywalker from Separatist leader Count Dooku (aka Darth Tyranus), Fett was killed in the ensuing battle. Boba swore revenge on the Jedi and carried on his father's legacy for decades to come. Fett revealed later that his father was in fact a Mandalorian foundling, and had fought in the Mandalorian civil wars.
