While #BobaFett used aliases like #SarlaccFood and #SavaBrecMadak in the 1996 comic strip "Twin Engines of Destruction," Andy Mangels first coined the name of "Jaster Mereel" in relation to #BobaFett. In the #ExpandedUniverse, that name was used consistently, although it evolved to mean something and someone else (who was killed off). But that's commonplace. In the short story, "Last Man Standing," published in the 1996 book "Tales of the Bounty Hunters," we have these two great quotes: "One tale tells of Fett being a failed stormtrooper who killed his commanding officer. ... A third account tells of a Journeyman Protector from Concord Dawn named Jaster Mereel who adopted the mask and guise when he was convicted of treason." In this panel from the comic, we can see part of his scars after escaping the #Sarlacc.
