A faceless enforcer, Boba Fett's distinctive armour strikes fear in the hearts
of fugitives. Still, underneath the infamous Mandalorian armour is a well built
man with short clipped hair and brown eyes, just like his father before him.
Form of Dress:
Boba Fett wears a unique Mandalorian armour that used to belong to his “father”
Jango Fett. Boba has designed some improvements himself, that ensure an even
greater performance. Boba Fett's armour is a battered weapon-covered spacesuit
equipped with a rocketpack. His gauntlets contain a flamethrower, and a whipcord
lanyard launcher. His kneepads conceal rocket dart launchers. Several ominous
braids hang from his shoulder -- trophies from fallen prey -- that underscore
this hunter's lethality.
A faceless enforcer, Boba Fett's distinctive armour strikes fear in the hearts
of fugitives. He is a legendary bounty hunter, accepting warrants from both the
Empire and the criminal underworld. He is all business, laconic, and deadly.
Fett has carefully guarded his past, cultivating a curtain of mystery around his
origins. He is in truth a clone, an exact genetic replica of his highly skilled
"father," Jango Fett. As a young boy, Fett grew up
on the planet Kamino. Jango raised and cared for him with the assistance of the
Kaminoan, Taun We, who ultimately took on the role of being a foster mother to
him. Fett was aware of the fact that he was a clone of his “father”. However, he
would often question his conception. Jango assured his son that he was a "true
clone" and his real son. Along with the Clawdite Zam Wesell, Taun We was the
sole female influence in the young Fett's life.
As a child Boba never attended
school, instead he gained much knowledge from his travels with his father and
the books he borrowed from the local library. Sometime before the Clone Wars,
Boba met ex-Jedi, Count Dooku, who had hired his father to take up bounties that
would be beneficial to him and his master in the events that followed. On one
such mission Boba accompanied Jango to the planet of Kuat, where Jango used the
boy as bait to lure his bounty into the open. Afraid, the young Fett threw a
thermal detonator and fled into the tents. Once he located the boy, the colonist
was horrified to learn the young boy was the son of the man sent to kill him.
Jango, having finished assassinating the remaining members of the camp tracked
down Boba and demanded that Larbo released his son, slashing his way through the
tents canopy. Disgusted, Larbo asked what kind of man would use his own son as
bait, and Boba replied "Only a son can know his father's heart". After killing
his bounty, Boba escaped with his father on their ship and informed the Count of
their successful mission. Boba would often accompany his father to the training
sessions with the other clones where he taught them basic combat skills.
Young Boba's life changed when a tenacious Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi, came
looking for his father. Investigating the attempted assassination of a Naboo
Senator, Fett’s father, Jango, realized that he and his son would have to leave
Kamino before the Jedi unravelled the mystery behind the attacks on Senator
Padmé Amidala. But Kenobi, having received orders to detain the Bounty Hunter,
brawled with Jango as the Fetts sought to escape from Kamino. Young Boba helped
his father by pinning the Jedi down with explosive laser fire from the Fett
starship, Slave I.
En route to Geonosis, they realized that Kenobi had tracked them. Boba
encouraged and intently watched his father outsmart and outmaneuver the Jedi. He
eventually watched what they thought was the death of Kenobi. The Fetts
journeyed to Geonosis, where Jango's benefactor resided. Boba watched as his
father's enemies were sentenced to death, but Jedi prove very hard to kill. A
huge battle erupted as Jedi reinforcements
stormed Geonosis to free their fellow Jedi. Jango entered the fray, only to be
killed by Jedi Master Mace Windu. Boba was shocked to witness his father's swift
death, and he quietly cradled Jango's empty helmet as Geonosis erupted into
After Jango's death, Boba picked
up the pieces of his shattered life with the help of his "black book," an
encoded message unit written by Jango with instructions for survival should Boba
ever find himself alone. After the Battle of Geonosis, Boba quietly buried his
father's body and marked the grave with a simple "J.F." He sought out his
father's benefactor, Darth Tyranus, who had the remainder of Jango's stipend.
Constantly on the run, Fett managed to secure a minor bounty on an assassin
before reaching safety. With nowhere left to go, young Boba found himself in the
custody of Jabba the Hutt. One of the reasons Jabba accepted Boba was to repay
the favour Jango Fett did him by killing Gardulla the Hutt a decade earlier.
While working for Jabba the Hutt, Boba had befriended one of Jabba's cooks and
his daughter. The two had Jango Fett's body armour re-sized to fit the young
Boba's frame. This couldn't have come at a better time, since Jabba was about to
give him his first off-world assignment.
His first major hunt off-planet was after Techno Union Foreman Wat Tambor, who
had a base on Xagobah. The planet was under assault by the Grand Army of the
Republic, so Fett encountered difficulties sneaking past both attack forces. He
managed to get inside the base and brutally finished off Nuri, but the arrival
of General Grievous foiled his plans, as Fett proved no match for the Kaleesh
warrior. Young Fett only survived because he faked his own death. Both Wat
Tambor and General Grievous escaped.
Boba Fett tried to give pursuit in Slave I, but the ship was damaged in a
dogfight with Asajj Ventress. Slave I was actually saved from destruction
because of the intervention of a young Jedi Knight named Anakin Skywalker, who
drove off Ventress. After forcing Slave I to land on a nearby moon, Skywalker
and Fett met for the first time. Skywalker, knowing that Fett was obviously not
a Separatist, assisted Boba in repairing his ship. During this time, Boba
repainted his armour, which was identical to Jango Fett's, into the green colour
scheme that he is most identified with, thus making it his own. Even though
Skywalker had helped him repair his ship, he was intent on taking Fett in for
violating air space in a Republic controlled military zone. Boba convinced
Skywalker, however, that he had information vital to the Republic's survival.
Information he would only tell the Supreme Chancellor. The information Boba had
was knowledge that Count Dooku and Darth Tyranus were one and the same person.
He would trade this information in order to get close to the one person he hated
the most—the Jedi who had killed his father on Geonosis, Mace Windu.
After being escorted to Coruscant by Governor Tarkin, Boba finally acquired his
one and only chance at Mace Windu. Boba followed and waited for the Jedi in the
Supreme Chancellor's chambers, of all places. Boba engaged Mace Windu in combat
but could not kill the Jedi Master. The two stood, battered and wounded, each
ready to deliver a final blow with their weapons. The fight was actually halted
by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, before either one could make a move. Boba was
surprised to learn that the Chancellor already knew that Dooku was Tyranus. He
also knew that Boba would hunt down Mace Windu, once he arrived on Coruscant. "I
believe we share a common enemy," the Chancellor told Fett. Palpatine paid Fett
for his information and told him never to speak of their conversation again, an
agreement that Boba wisely kept. Then the Chancellor sent him on his way.
By the end of the Clone Wars, Boba Fett had reached the age of thirteen—the
traditional start of adulthood in Mandalorian culture. Fett was now a
fully-fledged bounty hunter.
For years to come, Fett's reputation grew among bounty hunters and assassins.
Boba continued to acquire and upgrade pieces of Mandalorian armour. Eventually
he found the Mandalorian armour of Jango's old mentor and leader, Jaster Mereel.
Along with his new attire, he had honed his skills as an assassin and mercenary,
which would one day make him the most feared and sinister bounty hunter in the
At some point before 16 BBY, Boba met Sintas Vel, a Kiffar bounty hunter. In an
attempt at a normal life, he married her. The two later conceived a child, Ailyn
Vel, who was born in 15 BBY. Fett's job allowed for few attachments, however,
and the relationship failed to last long, Fett abandoning his family less than
three years later. The abandonment of his family caused Ailyn to hate her
In 12 BBY, Fett met Han Solo for the first time, in a brawl on the world of
Jubilar. Boba managed to capture and proceeded to taking him to his client.
However, he was interrupted by Han's good friend, Lando Calrissian. While Fett
was busy with Solo, Lando sneaked up on the bounty hunter and jammed a blaster
into his neck. Unable to resist, Boba Fett was humiliated when Lando injected
the same toxin he had used on Solo. They ordered Boba Fett to leave entirely.
Once the effects of the toxin wore off, Fett would swear revenge against Han and
Lando, for very few people outsmarted him and lived to tell the tale. It was the
beginning of a long rivalry.
Within a year after the Battle
of Yavin, Fett was hired by Rom Mohc to kill Kyle Katarn because of Katarn's
intrusions into the secretive Dark Trooper Project but, despite Fett's prowess,
Katarn escaped the encounter on Coruscant and went on to destroy the project. As
a member of Jabba's gang, Fett accompanied the Hutt to confront Han Solo, a
smuggler and a long time rival of Fett, about a spice shipment he had failed to
Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, Darth Vader desperately wanted to capture the
fugitive Rebel craft, the Millennium Falcon. To that end, he hired a motley
assortment of bounty hunters, including the legendary Fett. Vader specifically
pointed out to Fett that the Falcon's passengers were to be taken alive. "No
disintegrations," rumbled the Dark Lord, obviously familiar with Fett's
It was Fett who successfully tracked the Falcon from Hoth to Bespin. Arriving at
the gas giant before the Falcon, Fett and Vader sprung a trap on the ship's
hapless crew. Fett, a shrewd negotiator, received his bounty for capturing the
crew, but also was given custody of Han Solo. The bounty hunter was set to
collect the reward on Solo's head placed there by the vile gangster Jabba the
Many bounty hunters attempted to steal Solo from Fett, including an IG-88 unit
that caused Fett to stop at Gall for repairs. Dash Rendar followed him but could
not defeat Fett. Boba eventually escaped. With Solo in his possession, Fett set
his course for Tatooine. However, he was intercepted by IG-88C and IG-88D in
IG-2000, who were trying to steal Han Solo's carbonite block and avenge their
lost "brother". Fett quickly destroyed C and deceived D, destroying his ship
with a barrage of fire. D's ship crashed, though the droid managed to survive.
Fett then continued on to Tatooine.
Landing on Tatooine, Fett was confronted by a squad of stormtroopers that tried
to arrest him, but he killed them all rather than be further delayed. Arriving
at Jabba's Palace, Bib Fortuna directed him to enter via the side entrance,
secretly guarded by a krayt dragon, with the hope Fett might die. However he
defeated the dragon and ushered Fortuna in at gunpoint to present Solo to the
Hutt. Jabba was so pleased that he could display the captured Solo that he paid
250,000 credits for him, rather than the original 100,000 credit bounty. This
was in addition to the hefty bounty the Empire had already paid him. He further
requested Fett remain at the Palace, suggesting it would be worth his while if
Solo's companions came searching for him.
When Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, and Luke Skywalker
attempted to rescue the frozen Solo from Jabba's palace, they were captured,
with Jabba finding different ways to dispose of each of the erstwhile heroes.
Fett remained on-guard, but found his stay entertaining, watching with Jabba as
Luke battled the vicious rancor. When
killed the monster, an outraged Jabba sentenced Luke, Han, and Chewbacca to be
cast into the Pit of Carkoon where the ghastly Sarlacc lived. On the path to the
Sarlacc, Boba was aware of the large reward on Skywalker's head for his capture
to the Empire. Unfortunately, Jabba would not have it. They killed his rancor;
they would have to pay the price. The hunter hated the Hutt for this. Luke
staged his own rescue and Fett attempted to stop him along with several of
Jabba's hapless guards.
While he fired at Luke, in his obsession with killing the Jedi, he failed to
notice Solo. Solo, still blind from hibernation sickness, accidentally activated
Fett's jet pack, rocketing him against the sail barge and bouncing down to the
sand, rolling right into the waiting maw of the Sarlacc.
Fett's armour and body were extremely battered by his ordeal in the Sarlacc.
When he plunged into the beast, he was kept alive by numerous fibrous suckers
that attached themselves to his body. This was part of the Sarlacc's horrible
metabolic process; it would keep its prey alive for thousands of years, all the
while slowly feeding off it. Fett almost lost his identity in the swirling
dementia brought about by the Sarlacc's toxins. His resolve held, and he used
his weapons to blast free of the beast.
Naked, wounded, and defenseless on the sands of Tatooine, Fett survived, and
nursed himself back to health. He reclaimed his armour and his reputation,
returning from the "dead," and again taking on bounties.
Boba Fett is a cold hearted man, who takes no interest in others or their
ideals. Despite his targets having pleaded before him, he pities no one and
cares only about himself. Driven by hatred on the Jedi for killing his “father”,
and caring only for who can pay his fees, Boba Fett is famed to be the best
Bounty Hunter in the Galaxy, a reputation that he well deserves.
