Topic: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I was just wondering what species everyone thinks is naturally suited to be the best Bounty Hunters? And not just there physical characteristics, but their societies as well. Humans would be divided into their different societies, Mandalorian, Alderaanian, Corellian ,Soccoran and so on.

The Mandalorians are decendants of the Taungs. I would say the best species would be the Mandalorians, the Rodians, and the Aqualish.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

The Mandalorians are not direct decendents of the Taungs. The Taungs were aliens that conquered the planet Mandalore as well as many others. And they allowed members of other species such as Humans, Mandallion Giants, Cathars, and Togorians specifically to be assimilated into their culture. So Mandalorian doesn't mean human, it's a culture in which several species are members of. The Taungs obviously died out, but their culture lives on.
    Anyways, I think Barabels would be awesome hunters. Their infra-red vision, enhanced sense of smell, and physical size. Claws, Tails, and natural body-armor that is equivalent to battle armor.

That is not necessaily true. Jango was the decendant of the Taungs, as Cassus was likely a Taung.

Really? Where did you hear that?

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

During the Mandalorian Wars, almost all of the Mandalorians were still Taungs. Cassus was Mandalore the Indomitable's second in comand during the wars, which means he was probably a Taung.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I concede the possibility. So why do you think the Aqualish and Rodians naturally make good hunters?

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Most Rodians and Aqulish are bounty hunters, mercenaries, etc., so if it was not a great job for them, they would probably not all be bounty hunters.

My posts are awesome, I would never edit them no matter how much sense that would make.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Good to know. But I wouldn't talk to myself that long. You know, that's a question. Boba Fett doesn't say much, but do you think he talks to himself on those long voyages?

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Aside from the usual(Mandalorians, Rodians, ect.), I think Falleen would make great Bounty Hunters. All they have to do is send out some pheromones, and the bounties would fall at their feet. Too bad they're too regal to make good hunters.

I also think Tusken Raiders would make excellent Bounty Hunters, if they weren't so xenophobic. They're certainly aggressive enough to handle even the worst bounty and I wouldn't want to be at the wrong end of a Gaffi.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Any shapeshifting species I would say has a HUUUGE advantage in both stealth and deadlyness, making them perfect bounty hunters.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Maybe Gurlanins because of their shapeshifting ability, but Bothans might also be able to be good Bounty Hunters as well as spies.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

The probably would be great bounty hunters. Myriads of them have wanted criminals in their dens, and could certainly conive into getting them turned in. Of course, they wouldn't.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I'd say, in this order; Mandalorians, Clawdites, and Bothans.

I pretty much agree with Mandalore Stargazer about this. But I like Gurlanins a lot too, and I thinks that they would be as good as a Clawdite. So in this order: Mandalorians, Clawdites/Gurlanins, and Bothans.

What's a Gurlanin?

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

You know when at first i saw this thread I was immediately gonna say humans, but when you said they were divided into all these little groups.......I'll have to think about it for a while.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I don't think humans are the best suited for bounty hunting. Sure there are probably thousands of them, but compared to clawdites and some other species they just don't seem to be the best suited.

Then again there are the mandalorians (which aren't technically humans but a mix)... so maybe those humans...

Well it doesn't have to be a Mandalorian itself; rather, a human who expertly knows how to use the various weapons. Like Boba. He isn't really a true mandalorian, is he? Not like Jango, at least.

Or modifying a human by cutting out unneccesary emotions and fitting them with cybernetic implants. That's works pretty well too.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Aqulish are not that bright and their are the two species the fingered and webbed the fingered being the more aggressive of the species.  As far as it goes any species could with the right training be a very good bounty hunter. Take Zuckas a Gand not very well know as bounty hunter's but their he is. 4-Lom and IG-88 Droids they are able to upgrade sensor's and learn new tactics ad as a droid never forget like living creatures, although an emp can take them down easily.  Bounty hunting is learned you can list many different species and races in the same species and some will excel while others lag behind.  Montross was a Mandalorian, but he was not as good as Fett, Gredo was no good at all, Snoova was a Wookie and a fairly well known and respected hunter.  Boush was good enough to get Leia in to Jabba's Palace with Chewie. So mostly it is who can get their hands on the best equipment in the galaxy, during the Empire I would have to say Humans made the best because the Empire would share information more freely with humans than non-humans.  Humans being in order of the most widely known for bounty hunting Mandalorian, Corelian, Coruscant.  Coruscant is a good place to hale from because in the under-world you can encounter almost any species in the galaxy.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Isn't this racial discrimination?  (But I'll go with Mandalorians anyway, though Gands are my second choice.)
