"Boba Fett is an infamous bounty hunter whose exploits are known throughout the galaxy. He wears Mandalorian battle armor -- the same used by a group of evil warriors who were defeated by the Jedi Knights during the Clone Wars -- but his connection to the Mandalore warriors remains a mystery."More Info

Fett was commissioned by Darth Vader to stalk the Millennium Falcon and her crew after the Empire's clash with the Rebels on the planet Hoth.
