Actually, I believe you're thinking about the Annati or Annanti (Forgot how it's spelled) It's that little ring that Manaroo put in the Cybernetic link on his neck to help him feel emotions again.

Re: Dengar

I'm reading the "Bounty Hunter Wars" trilogy now and Dengar comes out as a bleeding heart compared to Boba Fett. Quite a change from how he was portrayed in "Tales in the Bounty Hunters".

But then, just about everyone human comes out as a bleeding heart compared to Boba Fett. Isn't that why we love him?

Re: Dengar

He was swoop racing in the Crystal swamp of Argelet sorry about the spelling. The Empire did turn him into an assassin during the surgery to save his life they left him with only three emotions hate rage and loneliness,  it was actualy Dengars girlfriend who saved Fett because once Dengar learned who he had pulled out of the sand he was ready to kill him.  Long story short Fett set Dengar up in Jabba's Palace that's why he wasn't on the sail barge. Dengar pulls Fett from the sand girl steps in Fett lives on.

Partly I think that was Manaroo's influence.  But also I think it was because of the perspective we were supposed to have as readers.  The Bounty Hunter Wars, if you ask me, is from Dengar's perspective half the time (though I haven't read it in a while).  Kinda like how Frodo is the hero of LOTR but Sam is the character we're supposed to associate with.  Since Dengar was the more personal character in the BHW, we got to see more of his true feelings, while in Tales of the Bounty Hunters he only told us what he wanted us to see, because he was trying to keep up an image.  (Sure it's not a first-person story, but it follows one character, whom the narrator is almost constantly with.)

Perhaps Boba, being the crazy guy he is, wasn't accessible enough as a story-telling character, so Dengar was used as the sane eyes we could see Fett through.  Someone who, like us, was amazed at what Fett could do.  If we had seen things through Fett's eyes instead, we might not have understood his motivation because he's such an "alien" being to us.  Plus he might have become excessively human.

Then again, I could be overanalyzing this.  wink

Overanalysis? No such thing! tongue

Your analysis makes a lot of sense. I did get the feeling while reading BHW that we were supposed to identify with Dengar and see things through his eyes, for in many ways he was the most "human" of the characters. It made Fett seem all the more extraordinary in contrast.

This could be the same reason that Fett seems so "alien" and emotionless in some books and yet so human in Traviss's works. It's all a matter of narrative perspective!

This sounds like the makings of a good dissertation. smile

Re: Dengar

Dengar was trained as an Imperial Assassin. He underwent brain surgery that replaced gis hypothalamus with circuitry, making him nearly unfeeling. he is now a bounty hunter who claimed 23 bounties and has a personal grudge against Han Solo for severe injuries he suffered racing him through the crystal swamps of Agrilat.

Now, were those 23 bounties from before or after he hooked up with Boba?
