Jango Fett was the last surviving Mandalorian.This is a topic All about him.
Mandalorian battle armor, twin blaster pistols, numerous hidden "extras"
The name Fett carries with it a cold air of dread and competence. To those with the credits to hire him, it is synonymous with success. To those with reasons to fear, Fett means capture or death. The name and reputation are just two of the many things Boba inherited from his father, Jango. In the final years of the Republic, Jango Fett was regarded as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.
A proficient marksman and unarmed combatant, Fett was covered in a sleek armored suit that concealed his scarred visage and strangely tattooed forearms. His combat gear featured an arsenal of weaponry, including retractable wrist blades, a snare, dual blaster pistols and other more exotic tools of the trade.
In combat, Jango used his harnessed jetpack to gain the advantage of speed and height over his enemies. The backpack also carried a nasty surprise -- an explosive rocket could be launched from it. For interstellar travel, Jango traveled aboard his well-worn starship, Slave I.
About a decade prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars, a man named Tyranus approached Jango on the moons of Bogden with an intriguing proposal. In exchange for a sizable fee, Jango would become the template of a clone army. Fett agreed, but with an unusual stipulation in his contract. In addition to his fee, he would be awarded an unaltered clone of himself. Unlike his other duplicates, this clone would not undergo growth acceleration or docility tampering. It would be a pure replica of Jango.
The Kaminoans provided Fett with private accommodations in their hermetic Tipoca City, and Jango dropped out of the bounty hunting limelight. He concentrated on teaching his son, the unaltered clone he named Boba, the ropes of survival and combat while the Kaminoans extracted genetic material to build thousands of clone soldiers.
While serving as Tyranus' enforcer, Jango was approached by Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation. Gunray wanted to eliminate Senator Padmé Amidala, who had long been a thorn in the Viceroy's side. Fett subcontracted the job to an assassin named Zam Wesell, and armed her with poisonous kouhuns to finish the job.
A pair of meddling Jedi got in the way of the hit, and Jango was forced to kill Zam lest the trail lead back to him. Fett hadn't counted, though, on the resourcefulness of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jango had used an exotic weapon, a Kamino saberdart, to eliminate Zam. No one should have been able to trace that weapon back to its source, but Obi-Wan's underworld contacts were able to point him in the right direction.
Kenobi arrived on Kamino, and learned of the clone army. He met Jango, and the two had a tense, yet civil, discussion, neither revealing their true motives. Fett nonetheless decided to flee, and ordered Boba to gather their belongings. Kenobi, working on orders from the Jedi Council, attempted to apprehend Jango just prior to Slave I's lift-off, which led to a water-logged melee atop the rain-swept landing platforms of Tipoca City. Jango escaped aboard the Slave I, and he and his son journeyed to Geonosis, to reunite with their mysterious benefactor, Lord Tyranus.
En route to Geonosis, Jango and Boba realized a homing beacon was placed aboard their vessel, and found a pursuing Jedi starfighter on their tracking screens. The tenacious Obi-Wan Kenobi was back, and a daring game of cat and mouse played out among the rocky debris of the Geonosian rings. Despite the barrage of Slave I's seismic charges, laser cannons and missiles attacks, Obi-Wan survived and continued shadowing the Fetts as they arrived on the barren planet's surface.
Kenobi and his compatriots were captured on Geonosis, which was revealed to be a Separatist stronghold. They were to be executed in grand Geonosian fashion, but their deaths were stalled by the sudden arrival of Jedi reinforcements.
Tasked with protecting Lord Tyranus, Jango entered the fray against the Jedi. His blaster skills killed several Jedi, but Jango was not quite prepared to face off against Jedi Master Mace Windu. Windu did not break stride as he deflected Jango's incoming blasts and swiftly cleaved off the hunter's head with a single stroke of his luminescent blade.
Jango's battle-dented helm bounced along the dusty ground of the Geonosian arena, to be picked up by a stunned and newly orphaned Boba Fett.
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 was born into a warrior culture called the Mandalorians. He was orphaned on the planet of Concord Dawn, when his family was murdered 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, begins. Jango was taken in by the Mandalorian leader after Jango 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. Jango 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, faced off against Visla in a one on one showdown, resulting in Visla being eaten alive by some animals. 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, Jango 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 Wessel), Jango learned the idol could cause a chain reaction in the Force, and would be used by the unnamed client to destroy Coruscant. Jango 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.
Conspiracy with the Sith lords
Around the time of the Battle of Naboo, Jango was contacted by a man named Darth Tyranus, who offered him a bounty on his former padawan apprentice, Komari Vosa, who was leader of the Bando Gora. Jango 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.
Tyranus was impressed; the bounty was a test to determine which was the better bounty hunter. In addition to the bounty on Vosa, Tyranus offered Jango a very large sum of money (5 million Republic Credits) 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. Jango, 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.
Ten years after the cloning process begins, 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 apparently fell into the stormy ocean. 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 ship. With an end in sight, Jango then decided to finish off Kenobi by launching a tracking missile at his damaged ship. Kenobi was quick to react by releasing his spare parts, from his ship, which smashed into Jango's deadly missile, causing both Jango and Boba Fett to believe that the explosion was a sign of a hit from Obi-Wan Kenobi's Starfighter.
Pursuit and confrontation
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 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 probably linked flamethrower, which drew from the same fuel source) had been severely damaged by the Reek. Left with only one of his two Westar-33 blaster pistols, a broken jetpack and likely a disabled flamethrower as well, Jango was able to fire off a few harmless shots before Windu killed him.
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.
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 the suit of Mandalorian armor once worn by Jaster Mereel.
It is appropriate that the Clone troopers would be created from him, as early in the pre-production of The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett had white armor and was intended to be a "super Stormtrooper," from the Mandalorian system.
Neither Jango or 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 is currently 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.The integrity fired on his death. Boba replaced him now and worked for Darth Tyranus. ...............
Este cazarrecompensas es el último de los temerarios mandalorianos, unos super comandos que fueron erradicados por los Jedi miles de años atrás. Jango Fett llevaba una resistente armadura que lo cubría casi por completo, haciéndolo invulnerable a la mayoría de los disparos que recibía.
Un par de años después de la batalla de Naboo fue contratado por Darth Tyranus (Conde Dooku) en las lunas de Bogden para cumplir con un sombrío propósito. Fue enviado al planeta Kamino, donde se le tomaron muestras genéticas para elaborar un ejército de soldados clon. Aparte de su paga, que fue considerable, Fett exigió solamente una cosa: un clon que no estuviese alterado genéticamente para crecer aceleradamente: su hijo Boba Fett.
Pronto Jango Fett se convirtió en guardaespaldas y mano derecha del Conde Dooku. A Jango se le ordenó coordinar el asesinato de la Senadora Padmé Amidala unas semanas antes de la batalla de Geonosis. El cazarrecompensas contrató para dicha empresa a Zam Wesell. Tras fallar una y otra vez, Jango decidió terminar con Zam Wesell con un dardo envenenado, el cuál sirvió de pista para que Obi-Wan Kenobi lo siguiese hasta Kamino. Tras descubrir que allí se fabricaba un ejército clon y recibir instrucciones del Consejo Jedi, Obi-Wan le siguió después a Geonosis. Poco antes de llegar al planeta Jango y su hijo descubrieron que estaban siendo seguidos por un caza Jedi, y lucharon contra él hasta que creyeron abatirlo. Una vez hubieron aterrizado en el planeta Jango observó junto a su hijo Boba Fett y el Archiduque de Geonosis, Poggle el Menor, como sería ejecutada la Senadora Padmé Amidala junto a sus dos protectores Jedi.
Pero tal ejecución nunca se llegó a completar, ya que un ejército de doscientos Jedi llegó a la arena de ejecución. Jango eliminó a varios miembros de dicha orden, entre ellos a Coleman Trebor, pero no pudo con uno: Mace Windu. El maestro Jedi con un solo movimiento de su sable láser decapitó a Jango frente a los ojos atónitos de su hijo Boba Fett.
I dedicated a while to do all this work.
