Topic: Discrepancies in Boba Fett's character/personality?
**Spoilers for Season 2 of The Mandalorian**
What do you all make of some of the perceived discrepancies in Boba Fett's personality or behavior over the years in the new canon?
I know many of us Fett fans appreciate that "The Tragedy" (re)-introduced Boba Fett as a man of his word, who has a code of honor (of some kind) that he follows despite being a denizen of the Star Wars underworld (many of us were first introduced to this in Boba's chapter in "Tales of The Bounty Hunters" back in the day).
What do you all think of the more recent stories that potentially diminish his code of honor and create discrepancies in his character? How do you as a fan bridge those gaps?
Reason I ask this question? Now that we've seen more of Boba's personality in the The Mandalorian, I think back to some of the new canon source material and am trying to figure out what makes him tick. There's bound to be discrepancies when multiple authors are involved (e.g., comic writers vs. the writers for The Mandalorian), but I'm also interested in trying to make sense of some of these discrepancies from a story-telling perspective.
Something that comes to mind is Boba's singular quote in Boba Fett #1: Age of Rebellion. When a man pleading for Boba's help to take out a criminal group called the Xan Sisters, he points out that Boba hunts down "bad men, criminals, murders." Boba coldly responses, "No... I hunt bounties." the comic ends with Boba's blaster trained on the man seeking his help, revealing that this man himself has a bounty on his head.
My issues is, I'm not sure this action aligns with how we've come to know Boba on The Mandalorian? Boba had many opportunities to act dishonorably or selfishly for personal gain in the retrieval of his armor, after all - he could have killed Cobb Vanth in cold blood, and had many opportunities to likewise take out Din in a cowardly or cold-hearted fashion. Yet, he chose not to.
I'm wondering if his survival post-Sarlaacc shifted his worldview somewhat. Almost like he wants to give others a fair chance and not take advantage of others for personal gain (something he might've easily done in the past, given an opportunity, as with the man in BF: Age of Rebellion). I like to view it that maybe Boba Fett has evolved and with age, gained a sense of honor he may not have previously had.
Now that I've reflected on this using one too many words, I'm curious -- What do you all make of it?
