The most known Mandalorian would be have to be Jango Fett. Jango Fett became a well accomplished bounty hunter. His beginning,
though, were more different. Jango was only an orphan of the planet Concord Dawn, home of the Mandalorians, when some Mandalorians
became traitorous and caused a civil war. Jango was taken in by the Mandalorian leader, Jaster Mereel. Jaster trained Jango
to be a true warrior. Jaster was then killed by the traitorous Mandalorians and Jango avenged his death.
When the last of the war was over, the Mandalorians were all but extinct. So Jango used his bad-ass skills and became
the mercenary we all know and love. Jango took off in his ship, Slave I, and accomplished much, most known was the
Jedi he killed. Although he accomplished much, Jango always considered himself a simple man traveling the galaxy to making
Before the Clone Wars, Jango was hired by Darth Tyranus to kill Tyranus's former padawan, Komari Vosa. With his
apprentice, Zam Wesell, Jango successfully completed the bounty. The bounty was a test and Tyranus was impressed by his skills
against a Jedi. Jango was offered a large sum of credits (money) to be the host DNA for a large clone army. Jango agreed
and soon millions of clones were created on the secret labatories of Kamino. Jango insisted that one of the clones not be
altered by growth enhancing drugs so he could raise it as his own son. This clone was Boba Fett. Jango stayed on Kamino and
to raise his son and help with the clones' training.
Ten years later, Jango was hired by Tyranus to kill the senator of Naboo, Padme Amidala. Jango
sent Zam to accomplish the task. Zam failed her task and was captured by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, thus forcing
Jango to kill her so he could keep his identity secret. But even with his efforts, Obi-Wan Kenobi tracked him to Kamino. The
two had a battle outside the cloning facility on the ocean world of Kamino.
Jango and Boba Fett escaped to Geonosis on the Slave I, but were followed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Kenobi
was captured by Count Dooku (Darth Tyranus) and learned that the Count was the political head the Confederacy of
Independent Systems (CIS). Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala had tried to rescue Kenobi and were captured as well. All
three captives were sentenced to death and were sent to the Geonosian Arena. Jango Fett watched the execution in a private
box with Count Dooku.
The execution was cut short by the arrival of Mace Windu and other Jedi. A battle then broke between the CIS's battle
droids and the Jedi. Jango jumped into the arena and killed the Jedi Master Coleman Trebor. The battle ended tragically when
Mace Windu sliced through Jango's neck with his purple-bladed saber of light. The only thing Boba could do was pick up his
father's helmet and continue his legacy...
