Appears in set 7153-1, Jango Fett's Slave I
Jango Fett was a human male bounty hunter and mercenary who lived during the final years of the Galactic Republic, allegedly hailing from the planet Concord Dawn. Known for his proficiency in marksmanship and unarmed combat, he was regarded as the best hunter in the galaxy by the time of the Separatist Crisis. When the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus approached him with an offer to become the template of an army of clone troopers, Fett agreed to be cloned on one condition: an unaltered clone would be created for him to raise as his son. That clone was Boba Fett who, unlike the clone troopers, was neither conditioned for obedience nor modified to age at an accelerated rate. Over the next decade—roughly between the Battle of Naboo in 32 BBY and the plot to assassinate Padmé Amidala in 22 BBY—Fett resided on the extragalactic planet Kamino where he provided his genetic material for the creation of millions of identical soldiers.
In the days leading to the first battle of the Clone Wars, Fett was hired by Viceroy Nute Gunray to assassinate his political nemesis, Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo. He failed in his commission, however, and was subsequently tracked to the Kaminoan homeworld by the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, forcing Fett to return to his Sith benefactor on Geonosis. Fett served as Darth Tyranus' personal bodyguard during the battle between the Jedi Order and the Separatist Droid Army, but he was no match in battle against Jedi Master Mace Windu, who decapitated the bounty hunter with his amethyst-bladed lightsaber. His death marked the end of his storied career, but the legacy of Jango Fett lived on in the clones that composed the Grand Army of the Republic, as well as his son Boba Fett who followed in his father's example by becoming a legendary bounty hunter in his own right after the Galactic Empire rose to power.
