Jango Fett is a fictional character and supporting villain in the Star Wars universe. He first appeared in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and the video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, in which he was played by Temuera Morrison. Before Attack of the Clones, Jango Fett was mentioned in Star Wars novels such as The Bounty Hunter Special.
Jango Fett serves as the genetic template for Boba Fett, all troops in the Clone Army, and subsequently the Imperial Stormtrooper of the Galactic Empire.
Jango Fett was orphaned at an early age, the son of simple Concord Dawn farmers killed by brutal Death Watch. At the age of 10, he was picked up by Journeyman Protector Jaster Mereel, who adopted and trained Fett to be a mercenary. He was raised among great warriors, learning to survive in the rugged frontiers. Though the Mandalorian supercommando were wiped out by the Jedi Knights, Jango was one of the few left to still wear the armor.
Years of physical conditioning and training honed him into one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galactic underworld. On occasion, Fett would tangle with Zam Wesell, as their talents would overlap on similar assignments. Though he preferred working alone, the two teamed up when it was prudent. The two shared a misadventure in tracking down a rare artifact from Seylott, which granted its user incredible power.
