Fett refused to work for them because they opposed the law.

Thats based on his character from sources like Tales of the BountyHunter isn't it?  Not sure that's an accurate portrayal of him after Ep. II and what we now know about his Mando roots.  I don't count it as such

If there's no known record of him working for the Rebels, I'd say it's either because they wouldn't shell out with the credits to hire him, or they don't want to 'lower' themselves by dealing with bounty hunters. 

Just mho

Evil is such a broad term anyway. What really is evil? Is it an action, a state of mind?

NOPE!  Fett's not evil!  He's like his dad, 'just a simple man trying to make his way in the universe'    big_smile

Fett defines his view of evil, you can find it here in the quotes section under the "Manual" drop down menu.

Re: Is Fett evil?

Fett isn't evil, he is just a professional personal soldier.  He works for himself and is all about the mission's accomplishments.  Several instances point to this from Karen Traviss' work (large part for my fandom).  He doesn't approve of the slow kill of Admiral Palleon, and his work with Jania points to his "fluid morality". 

All of the books pertaining to his bounty hunting shows no malice intent.  He is methodical, and clearly recognizes the cancer of the Emperor and his power hunger ways. 

Boba Fett isn't a good guy or a bad guy, he just lives life by the code he adopted from his father and put together on his own, much like we all should.

I think that Boba Fett is just a bounty hunter doing his job.

Agreed. The same applies to Jango. In a choice between good, evil, or neutral, I'd say neutral. They work for the highest bidder, no questions asked.

Well, that alone doesn't make him neutral.  The same could be said of real world assassins, gangsters, and thieves.

I Agree that's he's in that gray area between being evil and good, but because of his mind set rather then his actions.  I believe that he sees himself as a moral, Just *if brutally so*, and honorable in the same cast as Medieval knights and the like.  They weren't evil, and were doing good as they saw it, but then they weren't good either, as their brutal Code was in it's way outdated and usually VERY one sided.

And then you can throw in the Mando element.  By their standards, he's a VERY good man from their perspective.

Just because hes a bounty hunter doing his job doesnt make him a bad/good person. He could be killing good people simply because he ticked off the wrong people.

Granted he does have a fairly resonable honor code, but that doesnt go that far. Often he just works for the highest bidder...How does that make him neutral?

Yes I believe that Boba did have a very strong sense of revenge for Jango towards Mace. This was in the young Boba Fett books. I am not sure which one it is specifically tonight ( I think it is the last one) where they actually fight and it is only Palpatine that breaks up this fight so that both parties are alive at the end. They aren't bad books, honestly.

Re: Is Fett evil?

I'd say he's probably very cold and war beaten, but no evil.

Re: Is Fett evil?

My opinion is that Fett was about honor and abiding by the contract.  He was always out to finish the contracts and always delivered. He was never bribed out of a contract that I know of. Not that the bounties did not try. He was duty and honor bound. He was just a bounty hunter doing his job. To call him evil would be to call a solgier evil. Just because he was good at his job, he still had honor and respect. If he was evil I don't think he would have had the Rep he had.

Re: Is Fett evil?

In my personal opinion, Boba Fett is not evil. He's just trying to a make his way living the only way he knows how. Also, I think that the term 'evil' is very loose and there isn't an accurate definition, because you see, evil is mostly perspective, its how you view the act that is perceived as evil and/or how your own morals and ethics view that act. Personally, I don't think Boba Fett is in any way shape or form evil. Survival is completely different than just a pure and outward act of genocide, or some horrendous and so-called 'evil' act. Maybe his actions are viewed as evil, but his actions are effected by his code, and his code is personal and its his own set of personal morals and ethics. This is something that can't be judged except in your own opinion, and so therefore I see Boba Fett as just a neutral man who only wishes to survive, and quite possibly, carry on the legacy his father left behind.
