|“||I'm a simple man making his way through the galaxy. Like my father before me.||„|

Boba Fett is the secondary antagonist of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and a supporting protagonist in The Mandalorian. Though he was originally only an antagonist, in The Mandalorian, he became an honorable ally to The Mandalorian, as an ally of any person that does him good, suggesting that he does have morals despite being a bounty hunter.
He was raised by the bounty hunter Jango Fett, from whom he learned his now meritorious skills, and was nicknamed "Lucky" for being incredibly skilled even as a clone trooper cadet. Being raised by a bounty hunter, which explained how he was abnormally skilled, he was a villain all along, and would grow up to be considered among the greatest bounty hunters in the galaxy, eventually being hired to track down some of the heroes of the Rebel Alliance during the terrible reign of the Galactic Empire. However, he wasn't totally evil since his personal vendetta was to kill Mace Windu, a hero who had killed his father, and then further being familiarized with the bounty hunters' ways from his father's associates as a mere child. He was merely a villain whose circumstances led him into becoming one to survive.
After surviving his apparent demise, he became allied with Mandalorian Din Djarin, simply for believing it was the right thing to do, and helps protect The Child and fight the Empire, since he no longer has any vendetta and was not in service to the Galactic Empire. He is currently a grey zone hero.
He was potrayed by the late Jerely Bulloch and Temuera Morrison.

Boba Fett was originally a emotionless hired gun. This was until he fell into the Sarlacc Pitt. After he flew out, he became much more honorable and less cruel. He is usually emotionless while on the battlefield, although he does seem genuinely happy or mad, during key moments. His ambitions also grew, literally taking control of Jabba's palace instead of remaining a simple bounty hunter.
|“||I've one of those faces that used to appear familiar to everyone.||„|
Originally, Boba wore green mandalorian armor, that was worn-out and very chipped. He also had a green jetpack that was also rather worn. He had a tan cape (which appeared to have been made from the same material that tusken raiders use for there cloaks) and a braid from a scalped wookie, slung over his shoulder.
However, Boba would loose his armor after falling into the Sarlacc Pitt. He would get a brown robe and silver armor to protect himself, until he could find his old armor. His armor was now in the possession of Din Djarin. He managed to retrieve his armor once more, and later on, get a new paint job.
Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones
Following the Battle of Naboo, an extensive clone army was secretly commissioned on Kamino by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, who believed it would be necessary in order to ensure the protection of the Galactic Republic. The army, however, was part of a Sith plot to overthrow the Republic and destroy the Jedi Order, and the advantage in numbers would be used to kill the Jedi instead of protect them. Prior to the creation process, Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett was recruited by the Sith Lord Darth 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 this clone in 32 BBY shortly after the Battle of Naboo, the first of many, and Jango raised him as a son named Boba Fett.
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 fighting skills and became proficient with a blaster as a child. He also learned how to command and operate the weapon systems on his father's ship, the Slave I, and became familiar with members of the Kaminoan government. 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 and delivered her back to her father. Shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jango was sent on a mission to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala, an outspoken opponent of a potential war, at the behest of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Jango and his associate Zam Wesell, failed to kill the senator, and Jango was tracked to Kamino by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, who knew a bounty hunter connected to Kamino was behind the attempt on Amidala's life. When Kenobi arrived on Kamino, the Kaminoans revealed the clone army to him, and Kenobi requested to meet Jango. Taun We, an aide to Prime Minister Lama Su, brought the Jedi Knight to the Fetts' quarters, where Boba greeted them. Despite being distrustful of the Jedi's presence, Boba allowed them to enter, where Kenobi spoke with Jango about the clones and implied he knew Jango was behind the assassination attempt.
Knowing that he had been discovered, Jango and Boba immediately prepared to leave Kamino once Kenobi departed. While loading Slave I to leave, Kenobi discovered the Fetts attempting to flee and engaged Jango in one-on-one combat, fighting across the ship's landing platform. During the fight, Boba engaged the ship's blaster cannons and fired at Kenobi repeatedly in an attempt to kill him. As the fight progressed, Kenobi kicked Jango from the landing platform towards the ocean below, causing the Jedi who was attached to the bounty hunter by a wire to fall as well. Jango cut the wire and was able to make his way back up the platform, while Kenobi landed on the lower levels. This gave Jango enough time to reach the ship and leave as Boba piloted it, though Kenobi arrived on the platform again in time to attach a tracking device to its hull. Jango and Boba made their way to Geonosis, where the Separatist leaders had gathered. While en route, Kenobi caught up with them and engaged them in a firefight in the asteroid field surrounding Geonosis. The Fetts were able to evade the Jedi, and Jango shot a number of seismic charges into space in an effort to destroy Kenobi's starfighter. Kenobi was able to fake his ship's destruction by ejecting spare parts that exploded from a tracking missile, leading the Fetts to think he was dead.
They proceeded to the planet's surface, while Kenobi remained hidden in the asteroid field before pursuing them. Shortly after the Fetts' arrival at Geonosis, Kenobi began investigating the Separatists on the planet and was captured by the Geonosians. His capture prompted Senator Amidala and Kenobi's Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, to attempt a rescue of their friend. Jango and the Geonosians captured them, and all three detainees were brought into an execution arena, where Boba watched with his father from the sidelines as the detainees fought off the creatures that were meant to kill them. A team of Jedi, led by Master Mace Windu, soon arrived to rescue them. Windu held a lightsaber to Jango's throat while threatening Count Dooku, but Windu quickly left the stands for the arena below as Separatist battle droids began flooding the arena. The battle droids and Jedi engaged one another in the arena. As the battle proceeded, Jango joined the fight, where the jetpack on his armor was damaged and rendered inoperable, leaving him more vulnerable to attack. Despite the setback, Jango faced off against Windu, who beheaded and killed the bounty hunter. Boba watched in horror as his father was killed. Once the battle left the arena, Boba made his way into the cleared arena and took his father's helmet, pressing it against his head while swearing vengeance against Mace Windu.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
After Geonosis, Boba joined with a team of bounty hunters, including Aurra Sing, Bossk, and Castas to have his revenge against Mace Windu for Jango's death, and came into possession of Slave I. Together, Boba and the bounty hunters crafted a plan to assassinate the Jedi Master aboard the Republic vessel Endurance. Boba posed as a young clone trooper cadet, with the nickname Lucky, using the fact that he was genetically identical to the other young clones to his advantage; no one onboard Endurance was aware of his true identity. Once aboard the Endurance, Boba and the other clones were greeted by Windu and Anakin Skywalker, before being put through tactical training. Each clone was able to engage in target practice, and they all missed their targets—except for Boba who was able to use the skills his father taught him to his advantage. Later, while on a tour of the ship, Boba slipped away from the other clones and found his way to Windu's quarters, where he quietly installed a bomb that would be triggered by a laser tripwire in the doorway. Windu did not enter his quarters, however, but a clone trooper did, killing the soldier in Windu's place and forcing the entire ship into alert status. Sing instructed Boba via comlink to sabotage the Endurance's reactor core, thereby killing everyone on the ship, but Boba was reluctant to kill everyone. His only goal was to kill Windu. Nonetheless, Boba did as instructed, sneaking away from his fellow clones once again, before being caught by a clone trooper who called for security. The two engaged in a brief scuffle near the core before Boba was able to stun the clone with the trooper's own blaster. He also shot at the core command console. Much of the hull was immediately destroyed in the ensuing explosion, while Windu and Skywalker were nearly sucked into space and killed before the hull breaches were sealed. With the Endurance critically damaged, the crew began to abandon ship. Boba, whose identity was not yet discovered, and the other young clones were sealed into an escape pod and jettisoned into space, but Boba sabotaged the pod in order to separate himself (and his fellow pod inhabitants) from the other escapees. The pod was intercepted by Slave I, led by Sing and Bossk, which revealed Boba as the traitor who destroyed the Endurance. Boba was given the choice to either stay with the clone cadets or leave with the bounty hunters, and Boba somewhat reluctantly chose to leave with the bounty hunters. After leaving the escape pod, Boba and the other bounty hunters, including Castas, made their way to the nearby planet Vanqor, where the Endurance had crashed after the explosion. Once there, they killed several clone troopers and captured Admiral Kilian, the ship's commanding officer, as well as Clone Commander Ponds and another officer. Hoping to set another trap for Windu, Boba rigged his father's old helmet as an explosive on the ship's bridge, which would be detonated if Windu came looking for any survivors. The Jedi Master, with Skywalker, arrived shortly thereafter. The helmet exploded just after Windu noticed it, and remembered that Jango had a son—deducing that Boba was the one attempting to kill him. Windu and Skywalker did not die in the ensuing explosion but were caught within the rubble of the quickly-deteriorating vessel. As Boba and the other bounty hunters watched the explosion, he assumed that Windu had been killed and wanted to recover his body. Some of his companions objected, however, believing that their three prisoners were already enough to earn a sizable fortune from Count Dooku if they were turned over to the Separatists, but Sing sided with Boba, and the team set out to find Windu's body. As they entered the ship, they encountered R2-D2, Skywalker's personal astromech droid, who attempted to slow their advance by throwing debris at them and closing doors in their path. Unable to make it to the bridge, Sing made the decision to use Slave I to destroy the remainder of the Endurance, ensuring that Windu would perish. Before using Slave I, the bounty hunters overheard an explosion caused by R2-D2, who had been attacked by gundarks and used one of the Jedi starfighters to kill a gundark. The bounty hunters believed that meant Windu had survived and jammed all communication, hoping to prevent the Jedi from requesting help. R2-D2 was able to escape in the other starfighter, however, and survived a brief firefight with Slave I before jumping to hyperspace for Coruscant, where he successfully found help at the Jedi Temple and was able to bring a team of Jedi and clones to rescue Windu and Skywalker. The bounty hunters, meanwhile, decided to use the hostages to lure Windu into a trap. Sing took charge of setting the trap, and she sent a transmission to the Jedi Temple revealing that they were holding the Republic prisoners. Sing told Boba to personally execute Commander Ponds during the transmission, but he refused, as his goal was to kill Windu rather than other prisoners. Sing executed Ponds on her own, jettisoning him into space, and Boba's relationship with her and the other bounty hunters began to deteriorate. Boba objected to the treatment of the other prisoners as well, going so far as to show compassion by providing them with water. Nonetheless, the transmission to the Jedi Temple did end up putting the Jedi on their trail, only the Order sent Master Plo Koon and Padawan Ahsoka Tano rather than Master Windu. The group soon took refuge on Florrum, where Sing planned to seek the assistance of Hondo Ohnaka, a spice pirate and her former lover. Ohnaka declined to help her if the Jedi arrived on Florrum, but he also vowed not to stand in her way. Castas, however, contacted a fellow bounty hunter on Coruscant and offered to provide information on Boba and the others. Sing overheard his conversation and executed him, leaving Boba horrified as he began to realize he had made a mistake in teaming with the bounty hunters against Windu. Despite Castas' betrayal, it was his transmission to Coruscant that allowed the Jedi to discover Boba and the others on Florrum, as Tano had overheard the transmission. The two Jedi arrived on Florrum shortly thereafter, where Sing attempted to ransom the prisoners. Both sides ended up attacking one another, with Boba holding a blaster to Koon's head and Tano holding a lightsaber to Sing's throat. The bounty hunters created a diversion and attempted to escape, but Boba was captured while Sing fled on a speeder. Koon interrogated Boba, who refused to disclose the location of the hostages despite his reservations about their treatment. Ohnaka was able to convince Boba to tell the Jedi, however, by saying that Jango would have wanted his son to do the honorable thing. The hostages were rescued, while Sing managed to make it to Slave I and begin to flee, but Tano clung to the ship and damaged it enough to cause a crash. The ship went down in a fiery explosion and the Jedi assumed Sing had been killed, but she survived. Boba and Bossk, who was also taken into custody, were sent to Coruscant where they would be imprisoned. Windu met Boba upon his arrival, and Boba apologized for his actions and the destruction that he caused—but he vowed to never forgive Windu for killing his father. Boba was imprisoned on Coruscant for his actions during the assassination attempts. During his time in prison, a Republic plan was put in motion aimed at preventing a suspected kidnapping plot against Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. To do so, Obi-Wan Kenobi faked his death and disguised himself as Rako Hardeen, the suspect in the attempt on his life, and entered the same prison where Boba was being held. Kenobi teamed with Moralo Eval, a suspect in the suspected kidnapping plot, and bounty hunter Cad Bane to escape the prison in the hopes it would lead him towards the heart of the conspiracy. As part of the escape attempt, Bane paid and encouraged Boba to confront "Hardeen," and Boba claimed that Hardeen had cheated him out of a bounty. Boba and Kenobi briefly fought one another, before Bossk intervened and started a riot to defend Boba. Bane's plan was successful, and Kenobi eventually went on to help stop the plot against Chancellor Palpatine. After Bane's recapture, Boba called him out for having been recaptured so quickly after Boba's distraction. Bane then asked to tell him the story, to which Boba replied that he hoped it would end with Bane repaying him the money he promised for creating the earlier distraction. After asking further about their cut of the deal, Bane revealed that 'Hardeen' had not actually killed Kenobi, before going into the story of what transpired from Bane's perspective. After hearing Bane's full recounting, Boba interjected his distaste for the Jedi before informing Bane of a plan he and Bossk had concocted which would involve Bane and the use of his blasters. Boba left prison shortly thereafter and formed the bounty hunter syndicate Krayt's Claw, using Tatooine as his base of operations. As part of the syndicate, Boba hired Bossk, Dengar, C-21 Highsinger, and Latts Razzi. One of the missions they chose to undertake was on Quarzite, where they were to protect cargo on an underground tram from being attacked and stolen by a band of raiders. After Asajj Ventress, a former apprentice of Count Dooku who was betrayed by the Sith Lord and became a bounty hunter, killed one of their teammates, Oked, Ventress was hired in his place. The team left Tatooine and proceeded to an orbital elevator station above Quarzite where they meet their employer, Major Rigosso, and received the specifics of their assignment. The crew was to protect the contents of a chest, which would be delivered to the Otua Blank, the ruler of Quarzite, via an underground tram, as the planet's atmosphere rendered delivery via spacecraft impossible. The chest needed protection from the band of raiders, which was why the bounty hunters were hired. The team embarked on their mission by taking the space elevator down beneath the surface of the planet, where they boarded the tram and made their preparations to defend the chest from the raiders. The raiders boarded the tram during its journey and attacked, killing the Quarzite personnel. Most of the bounty hunters were thrown off of the tram. During the struggle against the raiders, Boba inadvertently knocked the chest over, revealing its contents: a young woman named Pluma Sodi, who had been kidnapped so she could be married to Otua Blank against her will. The leader of the raiders, Krismo Sodi, was her brother, who had been trying to save his sister. Ventress and Boba, who managed to remain on the tram, argued about the situation after Pluma pleaded with the former Sith acolyte, who felt sympathy for the girl; Ventress had also been forcibly taken from her home. Boba, on the other hand, intended to continue with the operation. Ventress used the Force to choke Boba, preventing him from fulfilling the mission and pulling him into the same room where Pluma and Krismo were being kept. Once the tram arrived at its destination, Ventress delivered the chest to Blank and claimed the bounty, departing before the ruler could discover the chest's contents: an angry Boba, who Ventress had tied up and placed into the chest. Ventress had released Pluma to her brother and regrouped with the other bounty hunters, paying them their shares of the bounty before parting company with them. When Ventress met with the other hunters at the ship and asked her where their leader was, she replied that Boba would turn up. Despite his embarrassment at Ventress' hands, Boba continued to run a successful syndicate of bounty hunters based out of both Coruscant and Tatooine. However, Ventress' history with the team continued to haunt the crew. In the waning years of the Clone Wars, Boba was approached by the Jedi Quinlan Vos while frequenting one of Coruscant's Level 1313 bars. Vos was interested in hunting down the former Sith for a planned assassination attempt on Count Dooku and wanted to partner with Ventress. Boba informed Vos that Ventress was hunting a Volpai fugitive named Moregi on the moon Pantora. Using Fett's information, Vos traveled to Pantora where he rendezvoused with Ventress. After doing several bounty hunting jobs together, Vos revealed his true mission to Ventress, who agreed to train him in the ways of the dark side of the Force. When Vos' attempt failed, Ventress approached Boba once again at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on Tatooine with the hopes of recruiting his syndicate to rescue her new partner turned lover. While initially cool, Fett and his fellow bounty hunters accepted Ventress' job after she offered to pay 250,000 credits in advance. Satisfied, Boba and his allies joined Ventress on her mission to rescue Vos. However, Dooku defeated Fett and his fellow bounty hunters with relative ease and Ventress's attempt to save Vos resulted in failure as well. Defeated but alive, Boba and his crew retreated from Serenno.
Becoming like his Father
At some point during his childhood years, like how he had with Sing, Fett learned about the bounty hunting trade from Cad Bane and Ohnaka. In the ensuing years, Boba gained a reputation as one of the deadliest bounty hunters in the galaxy. One of his known tactics was disintegrating his adversaries. As his career evolved, Boba inherited his father's Mandalorian armor, rebuilding it in Jango's memory. Fett also took back possession of the Slave I. Boba's armor was also adorned with numerous braids hanging from the shoulder, which he displayed as trophies of his fallen prey. While the bounty hunter only took on certain assignments, he would devote himself to these few jobs with fanatical skill. Boba assumed the mantle Jango had left as a notorious bounty hunter, as Boba became known as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy. Khamus, heir to the Mourner's Wail Syndicate, hired Fett as well as other bounty hunters to infiltrate a sanctuary of the Unbroken Clan and kill a target on Corellia. The team—which included Beilert Valance, Bossk, Nakano Lash, and T'ongor—successfully defeated the guards surrounding the facility in Coronet City, but were forced to retreat when Lash gunned Khamus down after the client eliminated their target.
During The Galactic Civil War
By the time of the Galactic Civil War, Fett was regarded as an established bounty hunter who worked as one of Jabba the Hutt's go-to mercenaries. At some point before the secret mission to Tatooine, Boba traveled to Coruscant where he encountered three rebel spies. After the spies attempted to engage Boba with Ion disruptors he disintegrated them using a weapon accelerator, which angered Darth Vader who refused to pay Boba the bounty as there were no bodies. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, Boba originally planned to leave Tatooine. But after catching wind that Vader was looking for a couple of runaway droids, Boba changed plans in order to attempt to collect the bounty. He followed one of the droids' footprints which led to treadmarks made by a sandcrawler. Upon tracing the sandcrawler's path to its destination, he discovered that the Jawas had been wiped out, most likely by stormtroopers. After additional work, Boba deduced that the Empire's forces had seemingly killed everyone known to have seen the droids. This included the two inhabitants living at a torched moisture farm which Boba had investigated. With careful observation, Boba found that there had been three inhabitants living in that moisture farm, and that the third inhabitant had most likely run off with the droids. Later, Boba was present in Mos Eisley on Tatooine when Jabba confronted Han Solo, one of the Hutt's smugglers; Solo owed Jabba money after having dumped his smuggling cargo before his ship, the Millennium Falcon, was boarded by soldiers from the Galactic Empire. Solo promised Jabba he would pay him, but a bounty had been placed on the smuggler's head. Solo, who became a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, ultimately did not pay Jabba, leading Boba to pursue the bounty. Not long after the Battle of Yavin, Boba was present in Jabba's Palace when the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader visited on behalf of the Emperor, to negotiate terms of the Hutt Clan supplying the Imperial Military with raw resources to increase their production. However, Vader arrived a day early on behalf of himself. Jabba was wary of Vader, but ordered his court to leave them in privacy nonetheless. Vader soon revealed that he needed two of Jabba's top bounty hunters. After Jabba tested the Dark Lord, they came to an agreement, so Jabba sent Boba, and the Wookiee Black Krrsantan. Later that day Boba and Krrsantan met Vader out in the desert after meeting with Jabba. Vader inquired to whether the two bounty hunters were Jabba's finest, and when Boba assured him they were, Vader gave them each their missions: Boba was to capture a Rebel Alliance pilot who was associated with a man named Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a smuggling vessel known as the Millennium Falcon. And Krrsantan's bounty was on an Imperial agent who the Emperor favored. He was also to be apprehended alive. Boba assured Vader that his will would be done. The Dark Lord told them to start immediately as he basked in a Tusken Raider camp he had slaughtered earlier. Per Vader's orders, Boba began the search immediately. He knew Solo frequented Mos Eisley, so he started there to find Solo's accomplice. Boba soon found a group of four Rodians and informed them of his search for Kenobi, to which the lead Rodian replied that Kenobi was just some "crazy old wizard," who lived in the Dune Sea, and asked why Boba was looking for the wizard. Boba pointed his weapon at the Rodian, stated that Kenobi was dead, and that he alone would be asking the questions. Boba then killed the Rodians, after they proved useless, and went in search of others who might know anything useful about the boy. He came across a group of Jawas that he also killed, then a family of moisture farmers that he interrogated, before murdering them as well. All leads proved fruitless, therefore, Boba headed towards the cantina, the place where most of Tatooine's scum and villainy went to drink. Boba entered, stood as the center of attention, and addressed the gathered criminals and spacers, telling them he was not going to leave until someone provided him with the boy's name. However, while Boba threatened an Ithorian, someone in the back of the room spoke up and mocked that the only boy he saw, was Boba. The bounty hunter demanded to know who had insulted him, and was pleased when a six-armed over two meter tall alien approached. Boba quickly overpowered the alien, removing one of its arms and breaking three others, in order to intimidate the patrons into answering his questions. Boba again demanded the boy's name. but Wuher the cantina's bartender, said that no one there knew the boy, therefore, no one knew his name; only that Kenobi had been in the cantina recently with the boy, but that was all anyone knew about him. Suddenly, a young moisture farmer bolted towards the exit, but Boba fired a length of fibercord that tripped up the teen. The young farmer claimed he didn't know anything, but to Boba, he obviously did for he had tried to run. Boba tied the young man to a table and and proceeded to interrogate him. The teen eventually broke and told Boba the boy's history on Tatooine, and most importantly, his name: Luke Skywalker. The bounty hunter knew the teen spoke the truth and released the boy who had "only wanted a drink," however, shot him in the chest right after. Boba left the cantina, boarded his ship, and headed to Ben Kenobi's home in the Jundland Wastes, where he waited for Skywalker to show. A group of Tusken Raiders were ransacking Kenobi's home, but Skywalker and his astromech droid soon arrived and Skywalker chased them off with his lightsaber. Boba stealthily closed in on them as they entered the hut. Boba threw a flash grenade that temporarily blinded Skywalker and short-circuited his droid, R2-D2. Boba moved in and hit Skywalker across the head with his carbine and ordered him to surrender. Skywalker, however, struck Boba in the stomach, hitting Boba's armor. Skywalker, as he was blind, mistook Boba for a stormtrooper. Skywalker deduced that since Boba hadn't killed him, whoever had hired the bounty hunter wanted Skywalker alive, so he ignited his lightsaber after Boba warned that Skywalker needn't be walking, just "alive." Skywalker told Boba that the bounty hunter never should have come to Kenobi's home, and was adamant that he would fight Boba blind; for Jedi didn't need eyes—although, as Boba reminded him, he was no Jedi. Skywalker swung wildly, giving Boba the chance to shoot a length of fibercord that Skywalker surprisingly evaded. Skywalker used the noise that Boba's Mandalorian armor produced to fight him, and caused Boba to stumble backwards and trip over Artoo, prompting them both to charge each other. The bounty hunter cut Skywalker several times with vibroblades that extended from his gauntlets, drawing blood several times. Boba again ordered him to surrender. Skywalker, therefore, added that Kenobi could help him even beyond death, prompting Boba to shoot him in the shoulder. Boba prepared to do so again when Skywalker recited a Jedi saying, and deflected the incoming blaster bolt; forcing Boba to tackle the still-blind boy. Both combatants grappled one another, and Boba began to press the lightsaber towards Skywalker's face. However, a box marked "For Luke" suddenly flew across the room and collided with Boba's head, knocking him unconscious. Skywalker and his astromech were equally surprised, but quickly left the hut and Tatooine, leaving Boba to report the events that had transpired to Lord Vader. Later, Boba traveled aboard Slave I to meet Vader on a Star Destroyer, and reported that the boy had "gotten lucky" and escaped. Vader was disappointed and asked if Boba had brought him anything of value. Boba told him he had, at least, discovered the boy's name: Skywalker. Vader remained silent for some time, so Boba left, for their present business was concluded. Unknown to Boba, he had just told the Dark Lord that he had a son. Boba tracked down a group of rebels on Carajam. There, he rode a creature and attacked the rebel encampent. There, Boba was able to grab his bounty, a rebel pilot. Upon collecting the 50,000 credit reward for the rebel pilot, Boba decided to collect the 100,000 credit bounty on known rebel collaborator, Zingo Gabnit. He returned to the Death Plains where he found Turfitch dying after Gabnit shot him. Boba shot Gabnit and continued to track him to settlement. There, he found several people tied up and heard Gabnit offering to pay three times what the Xan sisters offered him. Boba saw a explosive and was blown out the door. Despite that, he was able to capture him and shot him. Boba dragged Gabnit's body and was thanked by several villagers. He was asked by Stallo to help his fellow villagers take out the Xan sisters. Boba refused and decided to collect the bounty on Stallo. Several years later, Boba took his next job from Darth Vader, dropping a hunt for a Sullustan and instead giving it to a rookie hunter, and rendezvoused with the Executor in the Hoth asteroid belt. Five other hunters, including Fett's old allies Dengar and Bossk, were also gathered aboard the Star Dreadnought, though his two old partners were the only hunters he fully recognized. Though he realized they seemed familiar, Fett was unable to place the names of 4-LOM, Zuckuss, and IG-88B. Taking a twenty credit bet with Dengar, Fett correctly guessed their bounty would be Solo's ship, the Millennium Falcon. Vader intended to use Solo, as well as Leia Organa and Chewbacca, as bait to lure Luke Skywalker into a trap. Boba and the other bounty hunters were given permission to use any means necessary to capture Skywalker's friends, as long as they were captured alive. Vader singled out Boba and warned against disintegrations, to which Fett responded as the Sith Lord wished. After getting an idea, Boba went to work programming decoy coordinates on the Slave I to fool other Bounty Hunters that might pursue him. He jumped out and then jumped back into proximity of the Imperial Fleet, locating the Millenium Falcon quickly, having previously deduced that Solo would try to outlast the Empire rather than risk losing it in a chase. Boba proceeded to dock within the Star Destroyer Avenger, coming up with a story of having a leak on his ship as a reason for staying behind. As the Avenger began to prep for jump, the onboard personnel became concerned with dealing with the Slave I. Since Boba had seemingly disappeared from the dock, a member of waste disposal, Carl Ashon, was assigned to handle cleanup from the emitting coolant leak on the Slave I. He quickly discovered what Fett had witnessed; the Millennium Falcon was attached on the hull of the Avenger. As Ashon started to make plans on claiming the bounty, he was interrupted by Boba Fett. Ahson proposed splitting the bounty between him and Boba. Boba seemingly agreed before proceeding to knock Ashon unconscious. Fett then placed Ashon within a stripped-down Lambda shuttle that was promptly ejected from the Avenger, ensuring that Ashon would not interfere with Boba's plan. Boba then pursued the Falcon out of the system as they made their way to Cloud City on Bespin. Boba and the Empire arrived before the Millennium Falcon, which allowed Vader to manipulate Solo's friend and the leader of Cloud City, Lando Calrissian, into helping them capture Solo and the others. Whilst on Bespin, Boba defeated IG-88, who had followed him to Cloud City, leaving the droid to be collected as scrap. At some point Boba visited the Azure Den, an underground gambling spot known for inviting only longtime players. While there, the establishment's owner, Elad Zhalto, attempted to speak to him. Boba became concerned when he learned that Vader intended to freeze Solo in carbonite, as a test to determine whether Skywalker would be able survive the same process. Vader promised the bounty hunter that he would be compensated by the Empire for the loss of any potential bounty earnings if Solo was to be killed. Solo survived the process, however, and Vader turned the frozen smuggler over to Boba, who had Solo taken to Slave I. He was pursued by Organa, Calrissian, and Chewbacca, all of whom were attempting to save Solo from being taken to Jabba the Hutt. Their attempt failed, however and Boba successfully left Bespin. After capturing Solo, Boba learned from Syphacc's Bountiful Bounties that Lash had resurfaced. Boba found the black market technician Jhorstek at a bar in Phelar Port on Eriadu. After killing the bar patrons, Boba had Jhorstek tell him where to find Lash. Boba was told that Lash on Galmerah. Boba was able to track Lash's ship to Ruusan. There, he boarded Lash's ship and shot T'onga. Lash told Boba that Cadeliah was the reason she killed Khamus. As he prepared to kill Lash, Boba was attacked by Valance. The two fought until Boba shot Valance with a bioenergy disrupter. Boba then confronted Lash and Cadeliah. Lash and Boba shot at each other. As Lash got Cadeliah aboard a escape pod, Boba grabbed Lash by her tentacles. The two fought until Valance grabbed him. Boba was able to subdue Valance with his flamethrower. As Fett attempted to finish Lash off, Lash's ship came under attack by General Vukorah's ship. Fett, knowing Lash would die eventually, returned Slave I to continue his journey to Tatooine, bringing Solo to Jabba's Palace. Boba continued working for Jabba after delivering Solo to the Hutt. In the meantime, a plan was developed by Skywalker, Organa, Chewbacca, and Calrissian to free Solo from the palace. Sometime later, he witnessed Skywalker and Chewbacca be captured by the Hutt, while Organa posed as the bounty hunter Boushh and Calrissian posed as a guard. Organa was, however, able to free Solo from carbonite freezing, and the smuggler emerged temporarily blind as a result of the freezing process and Organa got captured and made a slave girl for Jabba. At Jabba's decree, Skywalker, Solo, and Chewbacca were to be taken to the Great Pit of Carkoon, where they would be fed to the sarlacc—a creature that lived in the pit that would digest them over the course of a thousand years. Boba made the journey to the sarlacc with Jabba's entourage. Once at the Great Pit of Carkoon, Skywalker and the others put their plan into motion, attacking Jabba's guards—and even leading to the death of Jabba himself, who was strangled to death by Leia Organa. During the firefight, Boba fought against Skywalker, who used his lightsaber to destroy Boba's blaster. In the ensuing chaos, Solo—still somewhat blind— was alerted to Boba's presence and swung out wildly with a vibro-ax, striking Boba's jetpack as he took aim at Skywalker with his wrist gauntlet. The impact caused the jetpack to ignite, sending Boba slamming into the side of Jabba's sail barge and then tumbling into the Pit of Carkoon.
Fett survived his fall into the sarlacc, though he was quickly separated from his armor, which was found by Jawas and later acquired by the Tatooinian sheriff Cobb Vanth. At some point Fett acquired a gaderffii stick and cycler rifle. Though a number of rumors about his fate circulated, Fett was presumed dead due to his fall into the sarlacc pit. Around the same time as when Vanth traded for the armor, Dengar and fellow bounty hunter Mercurial Swift entered into a fight in Coronet City on the Core World of Corellia. During their scuffle, Dengar pulled out his particle array gun and aimed it at Swift. Thinking of a way to survive, Swift pretended to see Fett on a nearby rooftop and said his name in false confusion, causing Dengar to turn his gun towards the roof. Taking advantage of this, the younger bounty hunter defeated him. However, he let Dengar live, as there was no bounty on his head.
Around 9 ABY, Fett came across the dying form of Fennec Shand on Tatooine. He managed to save her life in a manner that left Shand with a gutful of working machine parts in place of the near-fatal wound she had earlier received from Toro Calican. In return for this boon, Shand agreed to work as Fett's partner.
Vanth eventually gave Fett's armor to the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin in exchange for his help in killing a greater krayt dragon that was terrorizing Vanth's town of Mos Pelgo. As Din returned to Mos Eisley and his ship, the Razor Crest, he was observed by Fett. After watching Djarin, Fett descended from the hilltop where he had been standing.
Eventually, Fett departed Tatooine with Shand on Slave I. Together, they tracked Din Djarin and Grogu to Tython. After a tense standoff, the two made a deal with Djarin to protect Grogu in exchange for returning Fett's lost armor to him. However, Moff Gideon arrived on Tython in force, intent on capturing Grogu. Two Imperial transports were sent down from his cruiser and deployed stormtroopers in a skirmish against Djarin, Fett, and Shand. Djarin and Shand were eventually cornered but reinforced by Fett, who made quick work of the troopers after recovering his armor from Djarin's ship. However, Gideon dispatched four third generation dark troopers to abduct Grogu. From the Slave I, Fett pursued the Dark Troopers to Gideon's cruiser, upon which he remarked that the Empire had returned before disengaging. Afterwards, Fett explained to Djarin that his armor once belonged to his father, Jango Fett, whom he proved to be a Mandalorian foundling by showing Djarin his chain code, thus proving the armor to be rightfully his. Indebted to Djarin, Fett and Shand agreed to help Djarin rescue Grogu. As the Razor Crest had been destroyed by Gideon's forces, Fett and Shand brought Djarin to Nevarro from Slave I; there, Djarin met with New Republic marshal and friend Cara Dune to gain information on Migs Mayfeld, whom Djarin believed could help them locate Gideon.
When Fett and the rest of the group arrived to collect him, Mayfeld confused Fett for Djarin due to his Mandalorian armor, which had now been re-painted. Realizing he had no other choice, Mayfeld reluctantly gave Djarin the location of an Imperial refinery on Morak where they could access information from a terminal. Djarin passed this information over to Fett, who then entered the coordinates. After arriving, the group stood upon a hilltop and formulated their plan. Fett explained that he could not go with Mayfeld to access the terminal, reasoning that the Imperial remnant may recognize his "face," leaving Djarin to assume the role of Mayfeld's companion. Once Djarin and Mayfeld completed their mission, Fett flew in with the Slave I to extract the duo. After boarding the ship, Mayfeld asked Djarin to give him one of the cycler rifles, which Mayfeld used to fire at the rhydonium within the refinery, destroying the cargo they had delivered and setting off a massive explosion. While being chased by two TIE fighters, Fett released a seismic charge, destroying the two pursuing ships. After Slave I had landed, Dune and Djarin decided to release Mayfeld from his prison sentence to thank him for his help. Onboard Slave I, Djarin sent a transmission to Moff Gideon, warning him that he would be coming to reclaim Grogu.
After acquiring Gideon's coordinates, Fett and the group used Slave I to pursue an Imperial shuttle carrying Doctor Pershing. After disabling the ship with Slave I's ion cannons, it was boarded by Djarin and Dune who, after a brief standoff, captured Pershing. Following this, Slave I landed on an unknown planet as Fett and Djarin entered a cantina to speak with Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves. Djarin attempted to recruit Kryze to help rescue Grogu, but after she said they would not find Gideon, Fett suggested they leave. Upon hearing Fett's voice, Kryze and Reeves declared he was not a Mandalorian as he was a clone of Jango Fett and a disgrace to his armor for insulting Mandalore. Fett and Reeves then entered a brief fight before it was broken up by Kryze, who declared that she and Reeves would help Djarin. Following this, Fett followed the Imperial Shuttle piloted by Kryze in Slave I as part of her plan; to send out a distress signal to the cruiser whilst under attack from Slave I in order to board and take over the ship. As the group exited hyperspace, Fett began firing upon the shuttle as it sent out its distress signal. However, Gideon ordered for a squad of TIE fighters to intercept Fett's ship. In the ensuing battle, as Kryze crashed the shuttle into the cruiser's launch tube, Fett disposed of the fighters before jumping away into hyperspace, leaving the infiltration team to finish their mission.
Some time after Din Djarin's attack on Gideon's cruiser, Fett and Shand returned to Jabba's Palace on Tatooine, now under the control of Bib Fortuna, who acted as Jabba's majordomo prior to his death. Fortuna expressed surprise at Fett's survival after he fell into the sarlacc pit. Without responding to him, Fett shot Fortuna dead and pushed his body off the palace's throne, taking his place on the throne with Shand by his side.
