Mysterious bounty hunter and one of the most feared beings in the galaxy, Boba Fett was a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, made at Jango’s instruction and raised as his son. After witnessing his ‘fathers’ death at the hands of the Jedi Master Mace Windu, he trained in his footsteps as a bounty hunter.
Taking on commissions for Darth Vader, Fett tracked Hans Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon, to Cloud City where Vader captured him. After being interrogated and frozen in carbonite, Solo is turned over to Boba Fett so that Fett can claim the bounty on him from the criminal overlord, Jabba the Hutt.
After an attempted rescue of Solo by the Rebellion, he travels on Jabba’s sail barge to the Great Pit of Carkoon, home of the Sarlacc, where the prisoners are to be executed. When the prisoners mount an escape he attempts to intervene, and ends up in a tussle with Luke Skywalker, but Solo accidentally ignites Fett’s rocket pack, sending the bounty hunter falling into the Sarlacc’s mouth.
Dressed in his trademark Mandalorian armour, Fett has become of the the most loved and iconic of all the characters in the Star Wars universe.
