"If anyone tries something like that around me again, they'll find out why I'm the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy."
-Boba FettBoba Fett was a rookie bounty hunter who served as one of the many private hunters working for Jabba the Hutt's criminal empire during the height of the Galactic Civil War.
Being one of the first Clone Troopers created to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic, Boba Fett started out his life as Unit A0050, a specially modified clone designed for the sole purpose of being raised as by the template of the clone army, Jango Fett. Boba would spend his early years on his "homeworld" Kamino, being trained in the arts of the Mandalorian Warriors by his father until the two were forced to leave Kamino after being hunted down by a Jedi Knight named Obi-Wan Kenobi. Having believed to have killed the Jedi, Jango took his son to the planet Geonosis, where Jango's employer, who was the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, offered to protect him and his son from the Jedi.
Unfortunately for Boba, Count Dooku was unable to protect his father for long, as the Jedi soon discovered the location of the Separatist Droid Factories on Geonosis, sending a strike team of Jedi Knights led by Mace Windu down to the planet to not only destroy the factories but also rescue a pair of Jedi and a Republic Senator that Dooku was attempting to have executed. During the skirmish that followed, Boba watched as his father attempted to defend the Separatists trying to kill as many Jedi as he could, but was ultimately beheaded by Mace Windu, leaving young Fett without a father for the rest of his life.
