Boba Fett is a bounty hunter and minor villain from the Star Wars film franchise. He is one of the saga's most memorable and popular characters.
Boba Fett was born as a perfect genetic clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett on the isolated ocean planet of Kamino. He was raised as a fairly normal child by Jango, who taught him the basic skills needed to become a bounty hunter, until a fateful meeting with the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan had been sent on a mission to track down the attempted assassins of Senator Padmé Amidala, ultimately leading him to Jango. Forced to flee from Kamino, Boba and his father escaped in their ship, Slave I, and fled to Geonosis, where the Separtists had payed for Jango's services. The two were soon caught in the beginning of Clone Wars, where Jango Fett was killed by the Jedi Master Mace Windu in battle. Swearing a quest of vengeance, Boba soon founded his own group of bounty hunters, who shaped him into the bounty hunter he would become in his adult years, going on several jobs throughout the Clone Wars, often with the aim of killing Jedi. Eventually, Boba Fett found himself working for the likes of Jabba the Hutt and the newly formed Galactic Empire, who would give him jobs to hinder the light side for the rest of his life.
