Fett, Jango

this man was a noted bounty hunter during the last decades of the Old Republic. As a child, Jango was orphaned on Concord Dawn when his family, farmers by trade, were murdered in a civil war among the factions of the Mandalorian Mercs. Vizsla captured Jango and forced his parents to tell what they knew of Jaster Mereel, but the Fetts refused. Jango fled as Vizsla and his cronies executed his family. Jango himself was saved by Jaster Mereel and later trained by the Mandalorians, debts which he carried for the rest of his life. Jango became one of the noted Mandalorian Shocktroopers, and it was believed that he was the only survivor of that military group. He patrolled the galaxy in the Firespray-class starship Slave I, a ship which was heavily-customized to his exactly standards. Jango lived his life by a code, made up from simple ideals that came from a lifetime of bounty hunting. Around the time of the Battle of Naboo, Jango was contacted by Darth Tyranus on one of the moons of Bogden, to serve as the model for a new clone army being developed for the Republic. Jango had been singled out from all the beings in the galaxy by the Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. The job paid well, especially in light of the fact that Jango only had to provide genetic material and training for the clones. His only real payment, besides room and board on the planet Kamino, was a single, unadultered clone. Jango took the child and raised it as his own son, whom he named Boba. In between taking jobs as a bounty hunter, Jango taught his son to be self-sufficient and wary of everything. He trained Boba on starships and weapons, encouraging the boy to read and learn about the galaxy around him. Jango Fett often worked along, but was known to have partnered with Zam Wesell during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, it was Jango Fett who was employed by the Trade Federation to assassinate Senator Padme' Amidala of Naboo. He chose to work with Zam Wesell on the job, knowing that the Clawdite's ability to change shape would come in handy on Coruscant. When the attempt failed, Jango had to kill Zam in order to maintain his secrecy. He returned to the planet Kamino, until its location was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jango, realizing that Obi-Wan was not the Jedi accomplice of Darth Tyranus, fled Kamino to the planet Geonosis. There, he became embroiled in the Battle of Geonosis, the first true skirmish of the Clone Wars. Despite the fact that his cloned army performed well, Jango himself was unable to match the intensity of the Jedi Knights. In combat with Mace Windu, Jango was killed when he was decapitated by Windu's lightsaber. Stories of Jango's death reached far and wide, well beyond the battle arena of Geonosis. To lose one's head in a battle with a Jedi became known as "getting Jango'ed". Many clone troopers told and retold the story of his death, until it became widely accepted that it had taken twelve Jedi to bring him down.
