Fictional character biography

Jango Fett was orphaned at an early age, the son of simple Concord Dawn farmers killed by brutal Death Watch. At the age of 10, he was picked up by Journeyman Protector Jaster Mereel, who adopted and trained Fett to be a mercenary. He was raised among great warriors, learning to survive in the rugged frontiers. Though the Mandalorian supercommandos were wiped out by the Jedi Knights, Jango was one of the few left to still wear the armor.

Years of physical conditioning and training honed him into one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galactic underworld. On occasion, Fett would tangle with Zam Wesell, as their talents would overlap on similar assignments. Though he preferred working alone, the two teamed up when it was prudent. The two shared a misadventure in tracking down a rare artifact from Seylott, which granted its user incredible power.

Fett all but disappeared from bounty hunting circles as he took time to raise his son, Boba, who was cloned for him by the inhabitants of Kamino. He sought to experience what his life might have been like had he been raised by a caring guardian as well as to carry on the Mandalorian tradition of raising the young into warriors. Still, if the credits were right or the challenge appealed to him, he would don his battle armor periodically, returning to his ways as one of the galaxy's most renowned bounty hunters.
