Behind the Mask Authors

Chuck Wendig


Invented Cobb Vanth and salvaged Fett armor storyline in "Aftermath" trilogy


Wrote the Aftermath trilogy


On May 30, 2018, the author shared his opinion on Twitter that his intention for the first book was that "[i]t is definitely Boba Fett's armor, [i]t is [definitely] not Fett in that armor, [and] meaning the name Boba Fett need not be married to a single character, but rather, to whoever wears the armor." He then elaborated that his second book casts some doubt on that intention. In a later tweet the same day, he added "that [it] was kinda my hope. I mean, I don't control that fate, though." This "Dread Pirate Roberts" / mantle idea has been brought up as opinion before. Note that none of this is spelled out in his books, each which we've reviewed, and therefore cannot be truly considered Star Wars canon.
