Jango Fett

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jango_fett_sw_2698.jpg
"I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe."

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Temuera Morrison
Appearances: Age of Republic | Attack of the Clones | The Clone Warsnote 

"Always a pleasure to meet a Jedi."

During the final years of the Republic, Jango Fett was regarded as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy. A proficient marksman and unarmed combatant, Fett was covered in a sleek armored suit that concealed his scarred face. His combat gear featured an arsenal of weaponry, including retractable wrist blades, a snare, dual blaster pistols and other more exotic tools of the trade. In combat, Jango used his harnessed jetpack to gain the advantage of speed and height over his enemies. The backpack also carried a nasty surprise — an explosive rocket could be launched from it. For interstellar travel, Jango traveled aboard his well-worn starship, Slave I.


  • Adaptational Nationality: In Legends, he was in fact a Mandalorian from Concord Dawn. In the Canon, he is no longer Mandalorian (at least as of right now. Although, he's still from Concord Dawn, which is in Mandalorian Space and under Fenn Rau's protection by Rebels).
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Sure, he's a cold-blooded killer who tried to assasinate a Republic senator and kill a Jedi, but he did so just to make ends meet for his family. It's even more heartbreaking when you consider Jango's mistakes results in poor Boba having to fend for himself.
  • Affably Evil: He's a mercenary who will kill without hesitation, but is also a loving father to Boba. If one of his former associates, Space Pirate Hondo Ohnaka, is to be believed, he was said to be an honorable man.
  • Armor Is Useless: Averted; Jango's armor is the only reason why he's able to take as much punishment as he does. Whether it's a beating from Obi-Wan, damage from a jetpack malfunction, or a blow from a reek, Jango's armor can take it.
  • Badass Normal:
    • A much more legitimate example than Boba in the theatrical films, given his track record: He takes on Obi-Wan on even footing, kills a Jedi Master who was attacking the stands in the Geonosian arena, takes out the reek in a single shot, and manages to get the drop on Mace Windu twice, all without Force powers, cybernetics, or alien abilities.
    • Jango Fett is the only normal human in the Canon to have killed Jedi in open combat and fought Obi-Wan (a Jedi Knight) to a draw. There's a reason he was picked to be the prime human for the clones.
  • Bodyguarding a Badass: He serves the role as Count Dooku's bodyguard during the initial phase of the Jedi assault on the Geonosian arena. Dooku needs protecting the way Jabba needs more food.
  • Consummate Professional: Jango is all business when he's on the job; in the arena on Geonosis, he never once breaks his steely demeanor, even when Windu has a lightsaber at his throat.
  • Cool Helmet: The same type that Boba would later wear during the Original Trilogy. After Jango's death, Boba used his helmet in a trap to kill Mace Windu, blowing it in half in the process.
  • Cool Starship: The Slave I.
  • Doting Parent: One of his redeeming qualities is his loving relationship to Boba.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Like his adopted son, his end is an abrupt and humiliating case of bad luck. When he attempts to take out Windu after the rampaging Reek has disarmed him of his lightsaber, the frantic monster - despite Windu painfully bisecting one of its horns a moment ago - goes for Jango instead, the resulting trampling disabling most of his gear except for his blaster. As Windu already got his lightsaber back, reality ensues as the Jedi Master handily deflects every blaster shot and beheads him in a matter of seconds.
  • The Dragon: Dooku's first before General Grievous and all the others in the Canon.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He reserved an unaltered clone of himself (Boba) to raise as his son.
  • Evil Mentor: To his son, whom he raises to be as ruthless and greedy as himself.
  • Famed In-Story: Before Cad Bane, Fett was regarded as the greatest bounty hunter of his time during the Prequel Trilogy.
  • Greed: Jango's main motivation is money and he never seems to get enough. Despite being paid handsomely for his role in creating the clone army, he continues to take jobs, eventually taking on a permanent position with Count Dooku.
  • Guns Akimbo: With his twin blaster pistols.
  • The Gunslinger: He takes down Jedi with nothing but a pair of blasters, complete with Gun Twirling.
  • Hero Killer: Jango comes with an earthshaking reputation and largely lives up to it, fighting Obi-Wan to a draw, killing a Jedi Master and Council member during the arena battle, and actually getting off a few shots at Mace Windu before being slain.
  • Hired Guns: Jango is not adverse to mercenary work and takes paychecks from the Republic and the Separatists alike (though both jobs he does in the film were paid for by the same man, Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus).
  • Jet Pack: One of his assets, which he uses to good effect in battle against Obi-Wan, though not so much against Mace Windu.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: A villainous example to Boba, whom he mentors to follow in his footsteps, before being slain by Mace Windu.
  • Off with His Head!: Courtesy of Mace Windu.
  • Only in It for the Money: Jango doesn't care about politics or ideology. All that matters to him is getting paid.
  • Poisoned Weapon: His saberdart, which he uses to kill his partner Zam Wesell.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He only kills Zam Wesell to ensure the safety of his employer's plans.
  • Predecessor Villain: To Boba Fett, who gains his armor, methodology, and title of "best bounty hunter in the galaxy".
  • Professional Killer: While his official title may be a "bounty hunter", his role in Attack Of The Clones is to act as Dooku's personal hitman.
  • Punchclock Villain: Jango's in it for the credits and his son. While he did try to kill Obi-Wan, it was to cover his own escape, not out of any personal grudge.
  • The Rival: According to Dave Filoni, Jango and Cad Bane had an ongoing rivalry to decide who was the best Bounty Hunter around and Jango's death had left Bane disappointed that they wouldn't get to settle it.
  • Shout-Out: Jango Fett is named after Django.
  • Truly Single Parent: His son was cloned directly from his genetic material on Kamino.
  • Villainous Valor: Trying to take on Mace Windu, the second most powerful Jedi in the Order, might not have been Jango's smartest move, but it was certainly his bravest.
  • Walking Armory: He's got a missile on his Jet Pack, a pair of dart-throwers in his knees, a flamethrower in his arm, a grappling hook in the other one, a blade that can deploy from his forearm, and his two blaster pistols.
  • Weapon of Choice: Two blaster pistols.
  • Worf Had the Flu: He would have put up a much better showing against Mace Windu if the reek in the Geonosian arena hadn't trampled over him and destroyed his jetpack just before.

Species: Clawdite

Homeworld: Zolan

Portrayed by: Leeanna Walsman
Appearances: Attack of the Clones

"I think she's a changeling."
Anakin Skywalker

Zam Wesell was a Clawdite bounty hunter and killer-for-hire who was brought in as a subcontractor when Jango Fett was hired to assassinate Senator Amidala. Failing two attempts and captured by Obi-Wan Kenobi, she was killed by Jango.


  • Badass Driver: She's a mean speeder pilot, as evidenced during her skillful evasion of Anakin in the busy airlanes of Coruscant.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Any fan with a grasp of knowledge of the languages of Star Wars can tell you that her last words in Huttese translate to "Bounty hunter slimeball..."
  • Character Death: Zam is killed by Jango's saber dart after being cornered and interrogated by Obi-Wan.
  • Cold Sniper: One of her weapons is a sniper rifle, which she uses on Obi-Wan.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's a skilled assassin and marksman who gets tied up with the Separatists.
  • Dying Vocal Change: As she dies, Zam's voice changes to match her reversion to her true form, turning decidedly Voice of the Legion in the process.
  • His Name Is...: Right before she drops her client's name, she's silenced by a toxic dart.
  • Lizard Folk: Her Clawdite form is a lizard-like alien.
  • Professional Killer: Like Jango, Zam appears as an assassin rather than a bounty hunter in Attack of the Clones.
  • Just Following Orders: Uses this excuse while being interrogated by Obi-Wan.
  • The Reptilians: In her true form, Zam Wessel is a scaly, reptilian humanoid.
  • She Knows Too Much: Zam is murdered by Jango via a toxic saberdart to stop her from talking.
  • This Was Her True Form: Reverts to her Clawdite form after Jango kills her, though she momentarily reveals it during the Chase Scene in Attack of the Clones.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She is a Clawdite changeling who can assume any form, making her perfect for discreet operations. However, the only form she's ever seen to take is a female human form, and she never makes an attempt to change it even among a crowd of strangers where Obi-Wan and Anakin believe her to be at her most dangerous.
  • You Have Failed Me: Makes two failed attempts on Senator Amidala's life, resulting in her death at her client's hands.

    Aurra Sing 

Aurra Sing

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aurra_sing_sw_4788.jpg

Species: Palliduvan

Homeworld: Nar Shaddaa

Portrayed by: Michonne Bourriague
Voiced by: Jaime King (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: Darth Maul | The Phantom Menace | The Clone Wars | Solonote 

"Honey, this isn't about your cause. This is about revenge. My employer wants to get even with you. Simple as that."

Aurra Sing was a female Palliduvan bounty hunter who operated during the final years of the Old Republic. She was present on Tatooine, where she watched the Boonta Eve Classic podrace, during the Trade Federation's invasion of the planet Naboo. During the Clone Wars, Aurra served the role as the mother figure of Boba Fett (the son of Jango Fett) until she was supposedly killed on Florrum when Slave I crashed and Boba was incarcerated. She, however, survived the crash. She also worked with Cad Bane's posse during the Senate Hostage Crisis. Despite her prowess, she was unceremoniously pushed to her death by Tobias Beckett, at least according to Beckett himself.


  • Adaptation Species Change: In Legends, Aurra is a hybrid of a human and an unknown species. In the Canon, she is identified as a Palliduvan. However, it's not quite clear if this is a retcon to her being 100% Palliduvan or if she remains a Half-Human Hybrid and the species of her Legends counterpart's father was Named by the Adaptation.
  • Amicable Exes: She and Hondo get along rather well despite the fact that they are no longer in a relationship.
  • Ascended Extra: Aurra made a brief appearance in The Phantom Menace watching the Boonta Eve Classic podrace. She receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars.
  • Asshole Victim: Tobias Beckett was no saint himself, but Aurra Sing was one of the most sadistic bounty hunters in the galaxy. To say she had her fate coming would be an understatement.
  • Ax-Crazy: She enjoys violence and killing.
  • Bald of Evil: She is a very cruel bounty hunter who has a shaved head with quite a few long flocks of hair kept in a topknot-style ponytail.
  • Badass Normal: Despite the fact that she does not have superpowers, Aurra managed to give Ahsoka a decent fight before being subdued.
  • Boom, Headshot!: She does this to Castas when he tried to betray her.
  • Bus Crash: Her last chronological onscreen appearance in the Canon was The Clone Wars episode "Hostage Crisis", which took place relatively early in the Clone Wars. In Solo, it is revealed that Tobias Beckett unceremoniously killed her by pushing her off a ledge a significant amount of years after the war.
  • Cold Sniper: She is a very good shot and shows no remorse for any of her victims.
  • The Corrupter: To Boba. Even her leitmotif reflects this.
  • Creepy Long Fingers: She has some very creepy fingers.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: They enhance her sinister and Orlok-like appearance.
  • Cyborg: She has a biocomputer and communications antenna embedded in her skull.
  • Dark Action Girl: Oh yeah. She took on Ahsoka and managed to injure her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has a dry enough wit to make even Hondo shut up for a moment:
    Hondo: [talking to Castas about working with Aurra] Couldn't handle her, could you? Well, don't be ashamed. You're not the first man to bail out from under her command.
    Aurra: He's (Hondo) speaking from experience.
  • Death by Adaptation: In Legends, Aurra Sing survived into Second Galactic Civil War (which, by chronological comparison, would be set a few years after the Sequel Trilogy in the Canon). Solo confirms that Tobias Beckett killed her sometime into the Empire's first decade in the Canon.
  • Designated Girl Fight: With Ahsoka in “Assassin”. It’s also notable that she became the first and so far only character to injure Ahsoka in a fair fight.
  • Disney Villain Death: If Tobias is to be believed, she was killed by him simply pushing her to her death.
  • The Dreaded: She is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy during her time. Solo indicates that Beckett was heavily renowned for killing her, with some characters such as Lando Calrissian even dubbing him "The Man Who Killed Aurra Sing".
  • Establishing Character Moment: Although it's chronologically her last onscreen appearence in the Canon, "Hostage Crisis" (her first appearance in The Clone Wars air-date wise) features Cad Bane killing a bunch of Senate guards with a hand-grenade. Seeing a survivor crawling towards the door begging for help, Aurra, with a cold smile, shoots him in the head.
  • Evil Albino: Pale skin is a trait of Palliduvans.
  • Evil Mentor: To Boba.
  • Evil Redhead: She keeps her head mostly shaved sans a long red ponytail.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She acts fairly personable and friendly, but it only conceals (and not very well) her cold, sociopathic persona.
  • Gangsta Style: During the final showdown with Ahsoka in "Assassin", she held her blasters sideways.
  • Guns Akimbo: She used two blasters at once when she tried to assassinate Padmé, who was protected by Ahsoka.
  • Interspecies Romance: At some point, she (Palliduvan) had a relationship with Hondo Ohnaka (Weequay).
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: She does end up in jail after a failed assassination attempt, but she's quickly broken out by Cad Bane. However, she eventually gets killed by Tobias Beckett a significant amount of years after the Clone Wars.
  • Killed Offscreen: Tobias Beckett pushed her to her death at some point before the events of Solo.
  • Kick the Dog: Executing a mortally wounded Republic Guardsman while he begs for mercy.
  • Lack of Empathy: The only emotion she shows at Boba's moments of moral conflict is annoyance.
  • Looks Like Orlok: A rare female example of this trope.
  • Not Quite Dead: She was thought to have been killed when she crashed with Slave I, but she survived.
  • Parental Substitute: To Boba, at least until she leaves him to be captured by the Jedi.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: In Legends, Aurra was a former Jedi and made use of her Force powers in her bounty hunting career. In the Canon, there is nothing indicating that she is Force-sensitive and is just a very skilled hired gun. Suffice to say, if she was as strong in the Force, it's unlikely she would have died from a fall.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: Aside from having chalk-white skin and very long fingers, she's perfectly human-like.
  • The Sociopath: The only people she seems to have some consideration for are Boba, Hondo, and Bane, but Boba was left behind when Aurra was left to choose between helping him and saving herself (she chose the latter).
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She was considerably rather saner with shades of a Naïve Newcomer in Darth Maul through not being as sadistic as she chronologically will be in The Clone Wars. Considering there's about a decade between the two installments, there was plenty of time for that to change her into a Psycho for Hire.
  • Undignified Death: If Tobias is to be believed, he "just gave her a push" and let the laws of gravity do the rest.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She displays no compunctions about the idea of abandoning an escape pod full of clone children to die in space — saving only Boba — because the kids are witnesses to their crime. She even seems faintly amused by it (though thankfully the children are quickly rescued).

    Greedo 

Greedo

"[Get up!] I've been looking forward to this for a long time."

Species: Rodian

Homeworld: Rodia, Tatooine

Portrayed by: Paul Blake/Maria De Argon
Voiced by: Larry Ward (A New Hope), Tom Kenny (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: The Phantom Menacenote  | The Clone Wars | Marvel's Star Wars | From a Certain Point of View | A New Hope

"Going somewhere, Solo?"

Greedo was a Rodian bounty hunter in the employ of Jabba the Hutt. He attempted to capture Han on Tatooine, but ended up being killed by him.


  • Adaptational Self-Defense: In the Special Edition version of A New Hope, he tries to shoot Han when he realizes the conversation with him isn't going so well, as opposing to not getting in a shot in the original. He misses, allowing Han to kill him.
  • All There in the Script: In the original script, Greedo outright says that Jabba wants him to kill Han. In the final cut, it's unclear if Greedo intended to take him in dead or alive, which led to Greedo shooting first in the special edition.
  • Amusing Alien: Greedo's only purpose in A New Hope was to be a punchline for Han.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: He talks in his native language when confronting Han, but his appearance in The Clone Wars reveals that he is able to speak Basic.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Even in the original cut of the movie, in which he didn't fire at Han and miss at point-blank range, he still made the mistake of gloating to Han instead of just shooting him right after he refuses to come with him.
  • Bounty Hunter: Albeit a horribly inefficient one.
  • Butt-Monkey: In addition to being such a lousy shot, none of Greedo's jobs ever seem to work out for him. According to almost every From a Certain Point of View story featuring him that isn't his own, he gets almost no respect.
  • Call-Forward: In his deleted scene in The Phantom Menace, his friend warns him that he'll meet a bad end if he continues to act out in violence. Greedo should have listened.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: In "The Luckless Rodian" (his POV story), he has a grudge against Han because he had a girlfriend that dumped him for Han.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: A retroactive yet canonical example. In the original trilogy, Greedo had blue skin. Greedo is given green skin in The Phantom Menace and The Clone Wars to match the other members of his race.
  • Epic Fail: The Special Edition has him fire at Han Solo, but he misses by a significant margin. At point-blank range.
  • Evil Debt Collector: He tries to bring in Han for his debt to Jabba.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: In the re-releases, in which Han didn't shoot first. Given how Greedo opened fire at point blank range and missed, he could probably benefit from some time spent at the academy.
  • Little Green Men: He is the size of a human though. And he looks more like a tapir than a hominid.
  • Look Behind You: In the original script, Han uses this trick to get the jump on Greedo. Han points out that people are watching them, so Greedo glances at the bar. When Greedo looks away, Han readies his blaster. Those lines were replaced to include lines from the Jabba scene.
    Greedo: Now, will you come outside with me, or must I finish it here?
    Han: I don't think they'd like another killing in here.
    Greedo: [turns around] They'd hardly notice.
  • Never Bring a Gun to a Knife Fight: It was used against him in "Sphere of Influence". After holding him and his son at gunpoint, Baron Papanoida takes Greedo hostage while holding a knife up to his neck (and he didn't get to shoot at all at that point).
  • Small Name, Big Ego: According to "The Kloo Horn Cantina Caper", he thinks he's a highly talented bounty hunter, but in reality, he doesn't have much success. From everyone else's perspective, "He's an idiot with a gun," and since Mos Eisley already has a lot of them, Greedo doesn't stand out much.
  • Smug Snake: He thinks he's got Han cornered, unaware that the guy prepared beforehand to put a big smoking hole in his chest while he was gloating to him.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Greedo, in the Special Edition, if the ability to hit a target at point-blank range (or not, in his case) is at all tied in with intelligence. Outside of his aiming ability, everyone in Mos Eisley knows he's an idiot in general.

    Bossk 

Bossk

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bossk_sw_1602.jpg

Species: Trandoshan

Homeworld: Trandosha

Portrayed by: ???
Voiced by: Alan Harris (film), Dee Bradley Baker (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Ezra's Gamble | Darth Vader | The Empire Strikes Back | Return of the Jedi

"If you got a problem with Boba, you got a problem with me."

Bossk was a Trandoshan bounty hunter. During the Clone Wars, he worked alongside Aurra Sing and Boba Fett and went to prison with the latter after he was captured. He later escaped with him and joined his band of bounty hunters. During the Imperial era, Bossk was one of several bounty hunters hired to hunt down Han Solo.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In Legends, he was an unapologetic Psycho for Hire and had a deadly rivalry with Boba Fett in the latter's adult years (the times he did work with him were Enemy Mine situations). While he is still antagonistic in the Canon, The Clone Wars presents Bossk as willing to be a younger Boba's bodyguard while in prison with him and loyally worked alongside him on several contracts after breaking out of prison and decided to let him have a fair fight with Cad Bane despite initially favoring the latter. He's also presented as being slightly less psychotic and willing to keep his promises.
  • Ascended Extra: He appeared briefly in The Empire Strikes Back as one of several bounty hunters hired by Darth Vader. In The Clone Wars, he receives a fleshed out expanded role in addition to having some development and history with Boba.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: He is the big guy to Boba's little guy.
  • Canon Immigrant: Not Bossk himself, but rather his starship in "Bounty", the Hound's Tooth, originated in the Legends short story collection Tales of the Bounty Hunters.
  • Cool Starship: As mentioned above, the Hound's Tooth.
  • Daddy Issues: Just like in Legends, he has a very strained relationship with Cradossk. In Ezra's Gamble, Ezra asks him about his father, and Bossk simply leaves it at "fathers are overrated".
    • To give you an idea of how bad it was, in Legends, according to The Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett, Cradossk had a memoir for Bossk... but later scratched out his name and gave it to Boba, with a message saying "For Boba Fett — I wish you were my son." Bossk would eventually lash out and eat him after killing him.
  • The Dragon: He appears to be one for Boba Fett in The Clone Wars.
  • The Ghost: Bossk is mentioned in Solo as one of the few people that Val suggests to Beckett that he could have brought onto the Heist on Vandor instead of newcomers, Han Solo and Chewbacca.
  • Guttural Growler: As a Trandoshan, he does growl a lot when he speaks.
  • Hellish Pupils: As is to be expected from a humanoid lizard.
  • Lizard Folk: He's a Trandoshan.
  • Karma Houdini: While he does end up in jail for helping Boba during his quest for vengeance against Windu, he escapes along with Boba only after about a year or even less.
  • Older Sidekick: To Boba.
  • Psycho for Hire: He has shades of this in "Lethal Trackdown". Aurra Sing orders Bossk to kill the hostages if she gives the word during a meeting with the Jedi. When she's unable to contact him (due to the comm antenna embedded in her skull getting cut), he decides to kill the hostages on his own volition.
    Bossk: Listen up, boys. If Aurra doesn't report back soon, I'm gone... and you're both fried.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: He is a Trandoshan and a psychotic bounty hunter.
  • Sssssnaketalk: Particularly noticeable in the Darth Vader comics, which add quite a few s's to his dialogue.
  • Suddenly Voiced: He didn't say a word in The Empire Strikes Back and works in Legends indicated that he didn't speak Galactic Basic, but in the Trandoshan language. In The Clone Wars, it was revealed that he spoke Basic after all.
  • Uncertain Doom: His last known chronological appearance in the Canon was on Jabba's sail barge. It is unknown if he escaped its destruction like in Legends.
  • Undying Loyalty: In The Clone Wars, he was protective of Boba Fett. He even stands up for him in prison.
    • In an unreleased episode, an animatic showed him being with Embo and Highsinger against Boba in favor of Bane, with he and the former holding Boba at gunpoint before Boba and Bane had their Mexican Standoff. Bossk then chooses to let Boba have his chance at defeating Bane and puts his blaster away, which Embo then follows as well.

"Hahahaha! I can't believe I'm gettin' paid for this."

Dengar was a skilled bounty hunter who likes using superior firepower over finesse. He worked with Boba Fett during the Clone Wars, but later competed against him during the Rebellion after being one of several bounty hunters hired by the Empire to find Han Solo.


  • Ascended Extra: Much like Bossk, his first appearance (production-wise) was a wordless cameo in The Empire Strikes Back. In The Clone Wars, he receives an expanded role.
  • Badass Normal:
    • Not only is he proficient with blasters and bombs, he's also formidable in hand-to-hand combat against Kage warriors, even if he is the first one to get knocked off the train in "Bounty".
    • He puts up quite a fight against Chewbacca, although that's mostly due to the tech he carries. The poor Wookiee would have been killed had Han not arrived in the nick of time.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He tends to make passes at any woman who catches his eyes, such as Asajj Ventress.
    Dengar: Hey, Bossk. Who's your girlfriend?
    Bossk: Shut up, Dengar.
  • Deadpan Snarker: If he's in a Teeth-Clenched Teamwork situation, then expect him to engage in snark to snark combat with his teammates.
    Dengar: Look, I'm not dying out here today. This goes sideways, eat him first.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despises Mercurial Swift, whom he views as an arrogant and smug upstart who has no honor.
  • Evil Brit: Courtesy of his voice actor in The Clone Wars, Simon Pegg.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: He is this to Sugi and other bounty hunters who have worked with her.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He's got quite a nasty one on the right side of his face in The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Karma Houdini: Ends up earning a pardon from the New Republic for helping them out during the Battle of Jakku.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He does in "Eminence" along with Sugi and the other bounty hunters working for the Hutts, when Maul and Death Watch attack.
  • Mad Bomber: He carries small, time delayed grenades.
  • Meaningful Name: Switch the vowels and see what that spells.
  • Psychotic Smirk: He sports one after planting grenades on two Kage warriors.

Species: Duros

Homeworld: Duro

Voiced by: Corey Burton
Appearances: Darth Maul | The Clone Wars

"I'll take on any job... for the right price."

Cad Bane was a Duros bounty hunter in the galaxy during the Clone Wars. He was considered the leading bounty hunter after the death of Jango Fett. He often took jobs for the Separatist Alliance and specialized in fighting against Jedi.


  • The Ace: Of the bounty hunters during the Clone Wars.
  • Ax-Crazy: Downplayed. He's more ruthless than crazy.
  • Badass Longcoat: He sports a very spiffy trench coat.
  • Badass Normal: As a result of not being Force-sensitive in addition to being part of a species whose physical capabilities are about on par with humans, he doesn't have any superhuman powers or abilities and is still able to hold his own against Jedi in a fight.
  • Bad Boss: He sacrificed his little techno-service droid during a raid on the Jedi Temple, using him as an unwitting suicide bomber.
  • Bald of Evil: Although Duros are bald by default.
  • Blood Knight: Cad Bane has a tendency to laugh and smile while blasting everyone dead.
  • Boom, Headshot!: An unreleased animatic depicts Cad Bane and the young Boba Fett engaging in a Mexican Standoff, in which both nail each other in the head... but Boba had a helmet.
  • Combat Pragmatist: This is the key to how he holds his own against Jedi.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: He was based on Lee Van Cleef, while voice-wise, Corey Burton based it on Peter Lorre and fellow voice actor Lance Henriksen.
  • Consummate Liar: He can be convincingly deceptive. For instance, he was able to convince a Rodian mother to hand over her Force-sensitive baby on the claim that there were Jedi impostors roaming the Galaxy kidnapping children (which happened to be exactly what he was doing).
  • Crazy-Prepared: He always stresses to have a plan for every mission. His assault on the Galactic Senate is proof enough of this.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's got his moments, such as when the Hutt Council was arguing over whether to continue hiring him to do their work.
    Cad Bane: I'm tired of getting paid too, but not that tired.
  • The Dreaded: He was considered the most lethal and feared bounty hunter in the galaxy during the Clone Wars.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In "Hostage Crisis" (which is his debut episode air-date wise), he and his team effortlessly infiltrates the Galactic Senate and takes numerous Senators hostage. When he declares them to be his prisoners, one of the Senators states that he won't tolerate this "insolence" and walks past him, trying to leave. Bane promptly shoots him In the Back without even turning to look.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He saves Rako Hardeen from dying in "The Box", but only because Moralo Eval fixed the last challenge so he would lose and Bane thought Hardeen at least deserved a fair fight.
    Cad Bane: If you're gonna kill him, do it like a man!
  • Expy: According to Dave Filoni, he's the Star Wars version of Lee Van Cleef's Angel Eyes.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He sometimes acts like this, such as when he takes over the Galactic Senate. He's initially very calm and polite to his victims before murdering one of them off-handedly.
  • Guns Akimbo: His (initial) weapons of choice.
  • Indy Ploy: Master practitioner of it, alongside Xanatos Speed Chess.
  • Jet Boots: Which he can use to match the Jedi's Force-assisted athleticism.
  • Karma Houdini: He tends to finish jobs without suffering any comeuppance and when he does get captured, it's not for very long. When it seemed he landed in prison, it turns out he deliberately did so as part of another job, and it's implied that he's been imprisoned and has broken out before. Even with his last appearance being arrested on-screen, it's unlikely he stayed captured after that.
  • Knight of Cerebus: "Hostage Crisis" (which is his first appearance air-date wise) marks the first point when The Clone Wars became Darker and Edgier.
  • Living Legend: Count Dooku once gathered all the greatest bounty hunters together and introduced them with their name, any titles they had, some claim to fame, etc. When he came to Cad Bane, he simply says "Cad Bane, who needs no introduction."
  • Monochromatic Eyes: His eyes are solid red, a common trait for his species.
  • Nice Hat: A broad-rimmed fedora. Taken to extremes later on, where he insists on getting a new nice hat after losing his first one even though it makes him stand out, then kills another bounty hunter for his fedora because it was identical to his original hat.
  • Only in It for the Money: This line sums up his work ethic best:
    Cad Bane: Makes no difference to me, so long as I get paid.
  • Oral Fixation: The writers even discuss how well having a toothpick works for him on the DVD feature about the Deception arc. He also threatened to slit someone's throat with said toothpick.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He will promptly retreat when there's nothing to win. No need for pointless antagonizing.
  • Psycho for Hire:
    Cad Bane: [after finding Ziro the Hutt's corpse] I hate it when someone does my job.
  • The Rival: According to Filoni, Bane and Jango Fett had an ongoing rivalry to decide who was the best Bounty Hunter around and Jango's death had left Bane disappointed that they wouldn't get to settle it. Filoni also said that Bane's reason for taking up a mentor role for Boba during the cancelled Bounty Hunter arc in The Clone Wars was that he hoped that Boba could take Jango's place and settle the rivalry indirectly.
  • Refuge in Audacity: The trick he used to kidnap the Rodian infant in "Children of the Force": he disguised himself as a Jedi and claimed he had to take the child from his mother because "impostors" posing as Jedi had been kidnapping other children!
  • Sadistic Choice: One of his tactics for getting the upper hand on Jedi.
  • Smug Snake: Played With. Despite being extremely smug, he lacks the usual incompetence of a Smug Snake and is one of the most competent villains in the installment.
  • The Strategist: Part of what makes him so good at his job is that he attempts to plan for almost every possible eventuality. While he is also excellent at Xanatos Speed Chess, he prefers to not have to resort to it.
  • Super Wrist-Gadget: Part of his original arsenal was a box on his wrist, that worked as a communicator, a taser, a multifunction remote control, a flamethrower and somesort of pistol. After breaking Moralo Eval out of prison, he acquired another, bit tamer version, that sprayed stun-gas to his opponent's face, and also worked as a grappling-cable launcher.
  • The Sociopath: High-functioning enough so that it doesn't get in the way of his work, but he is most definitely one of these.
  • The Unfettered: Once Bane has taken a job, he will do anything to fulfill it, and by extension, get his payday.
  • Villainous Underdog: Bane often took jobs against Jedi and caused them a great deal of trouble, despite having zero force ability himself.
  • Villainous Willpower: He's so strong willed, he was able to resist a Jedi Mind Trick simultaneously attempted by Windu, Obi-Wan and Anakin. Subverted in that, afterwards he chose to comply with their demand, rather than having to endure the experience again.
  • Would Hurt a Child: His only response to Darth Sidious hiring him to kidnap innocent children was to remark that the crime seemed "small time" for the likes of Sidious, and that it made no difference to him as long as he was paid for it.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: He's proven to be very capable at modifying his plans on the fly.

    Todo 360 

Todo 360

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/todo_360_sw_8949.jpg

Model: Techno-service droid

Voiced by: Seth Green
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"I am a techno-service droid, not a butler droid."

Todo 360 was Cad Bane's techno-service droid and an excellent hacker. He did not like it when he's treated like or called a "butler droid". Bane used him as an unwitting suicide bomber during his infiltration of the Jedi Temple, but the Jedi rebuilt him to get information out of him and he found his way back to his master.


  • Affably Evil: He's very polite most of the time, and quite proud of his function as a techno-service droid.
  • All There in the Manual: Supplementary material states that the Jedi rebuilt him after he was used as a bomb to get information out of him. He didn't tell them anything and he left.
  • Batman Gambit: In "Evil Plans", he was able to bait R2-D2 out of hiding by claiming that he would dismantle C-3PO himself.
  • The Bus Came Back: He returns in "Hunt for Ziro" after being destroyed during the Holocron arc.
  • Butt-Monkey: Particularly in "Holocron Heist", where he does not get even a little respect from both Cad Bane and Cato Parasitti. See also Why Am I Ticking?.
  • Evil Counterpart: Possibly to C-3PO.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am a Dwarf Today?: He would like to remind you that he is a techno-service droid, not a butler droid.
  • Jet Feet: How he moves around.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: In "Holocron Heist", he was a Butt-Monkey for the most part. During the Ziro the Hutt arc, he is both successful in being able to capture C-3PO and R2-D2 and assists Cad Bane a bit in his fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos.
  • Oh, Crap!: He has two moments of this trope in "Holocron Heist". First, when he realizes he has no memory of having any memory crashes (suggesting he did have them) and then when he realizes that he's about to explode.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's about the same height as Yoda, but he's strong enough to tackle a standard humanoid off their feet or keep a Jedi from striking a death blow.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: A bit of a stark contrast to his master.
  • Robot Buddy: To Cad Bane.
  • Servile Snarker: He's shown to be pretty sarcastic to his master as well some of his partners.
    Cato Parasitti: Who are you?
    Todo 360: I am Todo 360, techno-service droid. Who are you?
    Cato: None of your business.
    Todo 360: Everyone's in a good mood today.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: What he thinks of Artoo giving himself up after falling for his Batman Gambit.
    Todo 360: Noble? Yes. Wise? I think not.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Cad Bane, despite all the abuse he puts him through, including turning him into a bomb without his consent.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Anakin rebuilt him after the holocron theft to get some intel on Bane, but Todo refused and fled.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: Bane used him as an unwitting suicide bomber in his debut appearance (you can even find the dialogue in the quotes for the trope). He is rebuilt shortly afterwords.
  • Yes-Man: He does anything Bane says, regardless of how weird it may seem (or in some cases, dangerous for him).

    Embo 

Embo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/embo_sw_8572.jpg

Species: Kyuzo

Homeworld: Phatrong

Voiced by: Dave Filoni
Appearances: The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Empire's End

"You're outmanned, laserblade."

Embo was a Kyuzo bounty hunter who lived during the era of the Clone Wars. He carried a bowcaster and wore a large-rimmed circular hat, which he used as a weapon or a shield. Embo was known to work as part of Sugi's band of bounty hunters, though on his own he was renowned as one of the most skilled bounty hunters of his time, at one point managing to match the Jedi Anakin Skywalker. He also owned a pet anooba named Marrok and a saucer-shaped starship called the Guillotine.


  • Always Second Best: Count Dooku once gathered all the greatest bounty hunters together and introduced them with their name, any titles they had, some claim to fame, etc. When reached Embo, he said "Your bounty tally was second only to one last season," before turning to Cad Bane.
  • Automatic Crossbows: Justified, as his weapon is a bowcaster.
  • Badass Bandolier: It enhances the Sergio Leone-esque style of his appearance.
  • Badass Normal: Only because he doesn't have Force powers. Some of it is also due to how the Kyuzo adapted to Phatrong's high gravity.
  • Bald of Awesome/Bald of Evil: Which one depends on who he's working for. However, considering that Embo and Constable Zuvio are the only known Kyuzo that have been shown on-screen so far, it's unknown if Kyuzo are naturally hairless or not.
  • The Cameo: He's quite prone to pop up here-and-there, thanks to his popularity among fans.
  • Characterization Marches On: In "Bounty Hunters" (his first appearance), he acted in a noble manner, defending a peaceful farming colony from the marauding depradations of Hondo and his crew. Every subsequent appearance has him engaging in decidedly less-than-noble endeavors such as kidnapping (Chancellor Palpatine), assassination attempts (Rush Clovis), or performing bodyguard duties for beings who were every bit as crooked as Hondo if not moreso (the Hutts). Granted, some of the people he attempted to either kidnap or assassinate weren't exactly saints themselves, but most of his appearances after "Bounty Hunters" are a far cry from his initial portrayal as the Noble Demon who helped the weak.
  • Cool Mask: He wears a respirator mask due to Kyuzo having very sensitive lungs (that doesn't mean oxygen is toxic to them). It still looks cool on him.
  • Creator Cameo: He's voiced by the installment's supervising director, Dave Filoni.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Embo indulges in flashy acrobatics even when they aren't strictly necessary. Special mention goes to "The Box", where he makes an impressive spinning leap out of a hole in the floor, rather than simply climbing out as everyone else did.
  • Heavyworlder: As with all Kyuzo. Their homeworld Phatrong has very high gravity.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Or rather, morally flexible bounty hunters love Anoobas. He has a soft spot for Marrok, who very much acts like a dog when he isn't trying to rip someone's throat out.
  • Hitman with a Heart: While he does routinely kill people for money, Embo has a soft spot for Marrok and his friends in the bounty hunting community, particularly Sugi and her niece Jas Emari. He even decides to help out Jas during the Battle of Jakku after helping capture her for Black Sun, although he was slightly motivated by a possible one million credit bounty she offered to lead him to.
  • Honorary Uncle: Jas considers him one, having known Embo well during her childhood due to his friendship with her aunt Sugi. Jas even learned to speak Kyuzo from him.
  • Jump Physics: His jumps are outclassed only by Jedi. Justified as the Kyuzo homeworld, Phatrong has very high gravity, allowing his species to jump higher than most species adapted to standard gravity.
  • Karma Houdini: Sometimes, when it comes to his more villainous jobs. He was captured for his part in Count Dooku's plan to kidnap Palpatine, but he didn't stay in Republic custody for long since he's seen free two episodes later. In "An Old Friend", he stages a few assassination attempts on Rush Clovis (and kills Teckla Minnau when she was sabotaging the Vault's power system) and when those attempts seemingly fail, it turns out that Embo completed his job by getting Clovis to flee from Scipio. After the Battle of Jakku, Embo ends up receiving a pardon from a very reluctant New Republic for his crimes after Jas Emari testifies on his behalf for the help he gave her during the battle.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In "Eminence", when Maul, Savage, and Death Watch attack.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Embo is incredibly quick and agile, strong enough easily snap necks bare-handed and has survived attacks that would kill most unarmored non-Force users. Justified, as Phatrong's high gravity forced the Kyuzo as a species to develop stronger bones and muscles.
  • Made of Iron: Thanks to his species' general durability, he survived getting shot by a tank (only being badly injured and getting a broken arm) and a beating from Savage Opress, a guy who is already known for killing people with his bare hands and being physically stronger than him. He also wears an incredibly durable and heavy helmet that could potentially break the necks of physically weaker species just from being worn.
  • Neck Snap: It seems to be a favorite move of his.
  • Nice Hat: One that can deflect blaster fire, be thrown and used as a makeshift snowboard. These war helmets are also a common sight among Kyuzo warriors. According to Dark Disciple, this helmet is heavier than normal and probably only safe for Kyuzo to wear due to their unusually strong bones and muscles.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Both literally and in the definition of the trope. At the end of "An Old Friend", he compliments Marrok for bringing his hat back to him, all after a failed attempt to assassinate Rush Clovis (except he wasn't really trying to kill Clovis in the first place).
    • In Empire's End, Embo lets Jas Emari escape him and the other bounty hunters chasing her due to his friendship with her and her aunt Sugi. At the end of the novel, he sides with Dengar in killing Mercurial Swift and letting Jas take over control of their bounty hunter band.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: The Kyuzo tend to produce a lot of warriors, most of which have a high sense of honor and justice. Embo displays this by sometimes working with Sugi, a similarly honor-bound bounty hunter, and when he's antagonistic, he's a Punch-Clock Villain at worst.
  • Punch-Clock Villain/Punch-Clock Hero: Due to his career of choice, he'll work against the heroes if he's hired to, but Embo doesn't seem to actually bear any malice towards the Jedi, despite usually working for villainous characters in most of his non-cameo appearances. In his first appearance, he and Sugi worked alongside Jedi to protect farmers from pirates that were trying to extort them.
  • Shield Surf: In "An Old Friend", he uses his shield-like hat as a makeshift snowboard to pursue Clovis down a mountain.
  • Shout-Out: His species name is one to Kyuzo, the taciturn and highly skilled ronin.
  • The Stoic: He's pretty quiet most of the time and keeps his sentences short, but...
  • The Unintelligible: Whenever he does speak, it's always in his Kyuzo language and The Clone Wars doesn't subtitle alien languages and relies on Basic-speaking characters to interpret what he says. The quote above is an official translation of his first line. The easiest line to translate without an interpreter is the time he complimented Marrok for fetching his hat.
  • Weaponized Head Gear: He can use his Nice Hat as a blaster-proof shield, or as a weapon by throwing it with lethal precision. According to Dark Disciple, his hat is stated to be pretty heavy and would probably require strong neck muscles to wear without getting thrown off balance.

    Marrok 

Marrok

Species: Anooba

A loyal and well-trained Anooba, Marrok was the Kyuzo bounty hunter Embo’s faithful companion, assisting his master in a number of adventures during the Clone Wars.


  • Badass Adorable: Anoobas are usually vicious pack animals and Marrok is no exception. However, towards Embo and his friends/allies, Marrok acts like a house dog when he's not fighting. For example, he hands Embo a probe droid like a tennis ball as if he wants to play fetch and retrieves Embo's hat like a Frisbee whenever he loses it, even in dangerous situations. He also gave Darth Maul a good fight.
  • Bus Crash: Embo appears in Empire's End, roughly twenty-five years after his final chronological appearance, but Marrok has died since then, presumably from old age.
  • Canine Companion: Until his off-screen death years before the Battle of Jakku, he has accompanied Embo in all of his appearances after the Deception arc.
  • Cuddle Bug: From the perspective of Embo's enemies, Marrok is just like any other Anooba. To Embo and some his associates (especially Sugi's niece, Jas Emari), he's a big softy when he's not fighting.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike the anoobas introduced in the Citadel arc, Marrok has white fur and doesn't have a large single tooth underbite. He is also much smaller than them, the size of a medium large dog, while the ones featured during the Citadel arc were roughly the size of a lion, although this might just indicate that he is not fully grown yet.

    Sugi 

Sugi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sugi_sw_3266.png

Species: Zabrak

Homeworld: Iridonia

Voiced by: Anna Graves
Appearances: The Clone Wars

"You might suggest anything you like, General Kenobi. But I know what I'm doing, and I will keep these people safe, my way."

Sugi was a Zabrak bounty hunter who, unlike most of her colleagues, had a code of honor that kept her from turning on her clients on a bribe. She even formed a band of like-minded bounty hunters.


  • Action Girl: She is a highly capable bounty hunter.
  • Badass Normal: She has no Force powers, but is a very capable fighter.
  • The Cameo: She tends to appear in the background in Bad-Guy Bar scenes. Her most famous one, though, is her The Cavalry moment below.
  • The Cavalry: In "Wookiee Hunt", where she brings Wookiee warriors (who hired her for the ride) to save Ahsoka, Chewbacca, and the younglings.
  • Cool Starship: Her light freighter, the Halo.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She refers to Obi-Wan as a "peacekeeper who fails to keep the peace" when he talks about the need to prioritize the Jedi's mission over helping the farmers.
  • Facial Markings: As is traditional for Zabrak.
  • The Heart: When she is a part of a bounty group, the group will be more noble and less self-serving, best seen with Embo and Latts, who are much less moral and more self-serving outside her group.
  • Horned Humanoid: It comes with being a Zabrak.
  • Knife Nut: In addition to her blaster carbine, she also wields a vibro-knife.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In "Eminence", once it becomes clear that they're no match for Maul, Savage, and Pre Vizsla, Sugi and her fellow bounty hunters decide to just cut their losses and run.
  • The Mentor: Trained her niece Jas to be a bounty hunter and passed along her code of honor to her.
  • Noble Demon: Although she is a Bounty Hunter (not traditionally the most noble of professions), almost every job that Sugi's taken in the installment so far has been a morally positive one (defending helpless farmers in "Bounty Hunters" and helping rescue Ahsoka and the others in "Wookiee Hunt"; the only questionable one would be bodyguard duty for the Hutts in "Eminence", but even then, it was merely a protection job) and she shows concern toward her fellow Bounty Hunters.
  • The Precious Precious Ship: Minor example. In "Wookiee Hunt", she warned Tarfful that if her ship was damaged, it would cost them extra.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: She refused an offer from Hondo to stand aside in exchange for double what the farmers were paying her, simply remarking that "we don't break deals".
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Her voice actress used a mix of Russian accent and Middle East accent for Sugi's voice.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair: Although, given usual Zabrak colouration, it's probably dyed.

    Cato Parasitti 

Cato Parasitti

Species: Clawdite

Homeworld: Zolan

Voiced by: Gwendoline Yeo (The Clone Wars), Gina Torres (Forces of Destiny)

Cato Parasitti was a Clawdite bounty hunter who was an associate of Cad Bane's. She, along with Todo 360, aided him during his infiltration of the Jedi Temple for a holocron, taking on the form of recently-killed Jedi Master Ord Enisence to work as an inside woman in the Temple until she was captured and Bane left her for dead.


  • The Cameo: She can be seen two seasons later out of Jedi custody in the Mos Eisley cantina in "Bounty" and "Revenge".
  • Cool Mask: She wears a rather creepy-looking, insect-like mask in her default form.
  • Dark Action Girl: An amoral bounty hunter who held her own against a Jedi Padawan in lightsaber combat.
  • Designated Girl Fight: She has one between her and Ahsoka.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Bane left her to be captured, so Cato revealed who his next target was to the Jedi.
  • Expy: She seems to be based on fellow Clawdite bounty hunter Zam Wesell, except that her shapeshifting is actually important to the plot.
  • Holographic Disguise: She uses this for her clothing whenever she's impersonating someone.
  • Lizard Folk: She is this as a result of being a Clawdite.
  • The Mole: She works as one inside the Jedi Temple during the Holocron vault raid.
  • The Reptilians: As a Clawdite, she can shapeshift and pass unidentified in large crowds.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: Aside from the shapeshifting, Clawdites are this in their default form.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Subverted. She can take on the the form of any humanoid even if their morphology is different (such as a Skrilling, which have three-fingered hands and multiple nostrils), but she uses a holographic disguise system to alter her clothing.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Much like Zam Wesell, she is a Clawdite with the ability to shapeshift.

    Castas 

Castas

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/castas_sw_6094.png

Species: Klatooinian

Appearances: The Clone Wars

Castas was a cowardly Klatooinian bounty hunter who worked with Aurra Sing, Bossk, and Boba Fett during the latter's quest for vengeance against Mace Windu. He contributed nothing to the group and his partners weren't very fond of him either.


  • Asshole Victim: Aside from Boba's regrets about working with Aurra, no one really mourned for him (even his offworld contact, Fong Do, was only lamenting that Castas didn't give his information before he was shot), and his corpse was unceremoniously dragged out of Hondo's bar after his death.
  • Boom, Headshot!: How Aurra kills him.
  • Character Death: He is killed by Aurra when he tried to sell her out.
  • Dirty Coward: A trait that earns him both Aurra's and Boba's ire.
  • Eye Scream: He was already missing an eye, but he was most likely hit in the other eye when Aurra shot him in the head.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Although Bossk seems indifferent.
  • Gonk: Klatooinians are hardly a beautiful species in the first place, but Castas looks even more thuggish than they usually do (most of them can at least stand up straight like most other humanoids).
  • Hate Sink: Unlike a lot of bounty hunters in Star Wars, Castas seems deliberately made to be uncool. He only works with Aurra Sing as a business opportunity, he's a Dirty Coward, he's a Jerkass to Boba Fett (even threatening to beat him up for calling him out on his work ethic), and he's nearly useless to Boba and Aurra's team in the former's revenge quest against Mace Windu. Suffice to say, no one complained after Aurra puts a blaster bolt in his back (except for Castas's associate Fong Do, but that's more because of the wasted opportunity for information).
  • Jerkass: He is not a pleasant guy to work with, to say the least.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Aurra agreed with him only once, when the wreckage of the Endurance became too dangerous to investigate further.
  • The Load: To both Boba Fett and Aurra Sing due to his constant complaining yet doing virtually nothing to contribute during the former's quest for vengeance against Mace Windu.
  • No-One Could Have Survived That: He didn't find it likely that Windu could have survived the bombing aboard the Endurance's wreckage.
  • Primal Stance: He has terrible posture.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After the many risks Boba and his crew took in his quest to kill Mace Windu, including the destruction of a Republic warship, he decided that he had enough and left as soon as they landed on Florrum.
  • Spanner in the Works: If Castas hadn't tried to sell Aurra Sing out to Fong Do (who was then overheard discussing this with an offworld member of the Ohnaka Gang), Ahsoka and Plo Koon ultimately wouldn't have tracked Aurra and Boba Fett to Florrum in time.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He really should've known better than to try and sell Aurra out on a public communications terminal when she's not too far away.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Attempted to beat up Boba when he called him out on his poor work ethic, but Aurra made him back off when she pointed her blaster at his head.

    Latts Razzi 

Latts Razzi

Species: Theelin

Voiced by: Clare Grant

Latts Razzi was a Theelin bounty hunter who was active during the Clone Wars.


  • Action Girl: Latts is a very physically active, skilled bounty hunter and combatant.
  • Badass Normal: She is a skilled fighter, and managed to fight Savage Opress and Darth Maul (and took down at least one Mandalorian warrior) and lived to tell the tale.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: One of the few humanoids to not wear shoes.
  • Fragile Speedster: She's very quick, but she clearly feels what few hits her enemies manage to land.
  • Informed Ability: The databank states she has pinpoint accuracy with a blaster, but she's only been seen using her blaster pistol once in a blink-or-you'll-miss-it moment during her battle with Darth Maul's Shadow Collective on Nal Hutta. And that one time she was using it, all of her shots were either blocked and/or missed.
  • Kick Chick: Nearly all of her melee attacks (that don't involve her grappling boa) are kicks.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In "Eminence", she escapes from a losing battle alongside with Dengar, Sugi, and Embo.
  • Purple-Skinned Space Babe: It comes with being a female Theelin.
  • Perky Female Minion: She is much less serious about her job than any other bounty hunter and seems to find it enjoyable.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Just like many bounty hunters, her allegiance is only to whose paying her. Although in "Eminence", she saves Embo and Sugi, allowing the group of bounty hunters to escape.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: She is a Theelin.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Her grappling boa not only looks stylish on her, it's also useful as a weapon, making it a scarf for asskicking as well.
  • Villainous Friendship: Latts is a Punch-Clock Villain at worst, but she seems to share a friendship with Ventress, at least to the point where they share a drink. In Dark Disciple, Latts is the only bounty hunter to not be angry with Ventress and actually defends her when people started speaking ill about her.
  • Waif-Fu: Her fighting style involves a lot of kicks and agility.
  • Whip It Good: She uses a unique weapon called a grappling boa, which functions much like a whip.
  • You Gotta Have Orange Hair: It’s probably justified, as she is of an alien species.

Voiced by: David Acord

C-21 Highsinger was a droid that worked with Boba Fett during the Clone Wars.


  • Early-Bird Cameo: In a sense, his first appearance in "Bounty" would have been this, as Highsinger (if that is him judging by concept art) was set to be a major character in the video game, Star Wars: 1313. However, the game was cancelled when LucasArts was shut down.
  • Lean and Mean: He's the tallest member in the young Boba Fett's band of bounty hunters, even taller than Bossk.
  • No-Sell: A restraining bolt just annoys him at best before he rips it off.
  • Punny Name: He's a 2 meters tall droid with "C" alpabetical designation. His nickname is pun on "High C".
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A deadly bounty hunting droid with red optics.
  • Robot Buddy: For Boba Fett. He’s even described by the installment' creators as being the Chewbacca to Boba's Han Solo.
  • Spin Attack: He can spin his upper body around, rapidly firing his blasters to gun down any target in range.
  • The Unintelligible: His dialogue mostly consists of robotic grunts.
  • Uniqueness Value: Ventress notes in Dark Disciple that Highsinger seems to be the only kind of droid like him in existence.

  • Kick the Dog: He plucks out FE-B3's only remaining eye to get information out of him.
    • The Dog Bites Back: FE-B3 refuses to help Tek-Tek when the latter gets his leg blown off because he can't; he has no eyes, so how can he do anything?

  • Eyepatch of Power: He has one over where his left eyestalk would be.
  • Fish People: He is a Patrolian.
  • Killer Rabbit: He may be diminutive, but he was picked by Cad Bane for the Senate takeover for a reason. Anakin learned this the hard way.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: The a blurb in the Decoded version of "Hostage Crisis" that he lost his left eye in a bomb accident.
  • Shock and Awe: One of his weapons is a taser.

  • Artificial Limbs: His right forearm is a prosthetic.

  • Mind Control: Anakin uses a Jedi Mind Trick on Alama to get him to search another floor of the Senate building when he came close to discovering his location.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: A Legends reference book stated he'd been kicked out of a pirate gang for being too ruthless, with the implication it might have been Hondo Ohnaka's crew.

    Rako Hardeen 

Rako Hardeen

Species: Human

Homeworld: Concord Dawn

Appearances: The Clone Wars

The Marksman of Concord Dawn, this man won his claim to fame by "killing" Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, he ended up being part of a bigger plan of the Jedi Council's.

Note that this is for the real Rako Hardeen. For tropes applying to Obi-Wan's impersonation of Rako Hardeen, see Obi-Wan's entry here.


  • Affably Evil: While celebrating "killing" Obi-Wan, Hardeen buys a round for everyone in the cantina.
  • Ambiguous Situation: He is from Concord Dawn, a Mandalorian world and his "Marksman of Concord Dawn" moniker wouldn't be out of place among their warrior culture. However, any other potential connections he has to the Mandalorians (or status as a Mandalorian) has not been brought up.
  • Bald of Evil: This resulted in Obi-Wan shaving his own head when posing as Hardeen.
  • Cold Sniper: He's known as the Marksman of Concord Dawn for a reason.
  • Cool Helmet: Has a helmet inspired by Ralph McQuarrie concept art of a Rebel trooper helmet for Return of the Jedi.
  • Informed Ability: We don't really see much of what the real Rako Hardeen is capable of beyond his claim-to-fame and his marksmanship. And the one job we do see him doing and succeeding at was a setup by the Jedi Council.
  • Mugged for Disguise: Subverted. He was set up to "kill" Obi-Wan, who then had plastic surgery to change his face to look like Hardeen's and then had Hardeen's gear taken from him to complete the disguise.
  • Tattooed Crook: He's got an elaborate tattoo on his face. When Obi-Wan had his face surgically reshaped to match Hardeen's, the tattoo was included.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To the Jedi Council, as part of a plan to infiltrate a Separatist conspiracy. They hire him to kill Obi-Wan without telling them who they are until he receives his payment from them.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After Obi-Wan completed his disguise, there was no word on what happened to the real Rako Hardeen. According to the online trivia slideshow for "The Box", there would have been a scene where Captain Rex was caught by Anakin Skywalker taking the real Hardeen into hiding, but it was cut because the writers felt it would be out of character for Rex to withhold information from Anakin.

Species: Parwan

Homeworld: Parwa

Voiced by: Matthew Wood
Appearances: The Clone Wars

Also known as "The Exterminator", this Parwan was considered one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy during the Clone Wars. He competed in the Box with ten other bounty hunters for the opportunity to kidnap Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.


  • Badass Bandolier: Due his to bio-electric energy field, he actually has to wear an insulated bandolier to keep his own explosives from blowing himself up when not in use.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He can inject himself with an electrolytic serum that would kill most other lifeforms, and with which he can pass through ray shields unharmed.
  • Combat Tentacles: His fingers are very long and he can shock anyone who touches them.
  • Extra Eyes: As with every Parwan, he has three eyes.
  • Guns Akimbo: Aside from his bio-electric current, he has also two blaster pistols with grips practically designed for his tentacle-hands.
  • Jet Pack: He wears one that helped him escape the Jedi on Naboo.
  • Karma Houdini: He was the only bounty hunter to avoid being captured during Dooku's Chancellor-kidnapping plot. Judging by his background appearances in later episodes, the Jet Pack malfunction didn't kill him either.
  • Living Gasbag: He's even referred to as one. However, being lightweight and floaty results in less speed and momentum when in flight.
  • Red Baron: According to Dooku, he's known as "the Exterminator".
  • Shock and Awe: The bodies of Parwans produce an electrical field and Derrown used this to shock Anakin into unconsciousness.
  • Shoulder Cannon: He has a Predator-style shoulder-mounted canon, although he hasn't used it on-screen.
  • Starfish Aliens: Parwans are some sort of three-eyed-tentacled-humanoid-fungi creatures, and they're floating in the air.
  • The Unintelligible: Even the other bounty hunters (aside from Obi-Wan disguised as Rako Hardeen) seemed to be unable to understand him. It creates a bit of a Plot Hole, when he spoke to a Republic Senate guard using Galactic Basic while being disguised as one of them. (Admittedly, the other Parwan character in the Canon, Dr. Gubacher, can speak Basic.)

  • Fish People: He is a Selkath.
  • High-Voltage Death: During the ray shield portion of the Box, Mantu manages to survive nearly to the end, but one of the ray shields zaps his arm, causing him to lose balance and fall off a pillar into the ray shields, electrocuting him to death.
  • The Quiet One: He has no lines during his only appearance.
  • Stereotype Flip: The Selkath are well known for being a peaceful race, while Mantu is a feared killer and bounty hunter. Count Dooku even comments on this.

Species: Ithorian

Appear in: The Clone Wars

"Onca, you and your brother have been a legendary team."
Count Dooku

A fearsome duo of Ithorian brothers, Bulduga and Onca were considered two of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy during the Clone Wars. They competed in Count Dooku's competition, only for Bulduga to be killed by Cad Bane prior to the start of the test and Onca to fall victim to the Box.


  • Butt-Monkey: Not only is Onca the first of the bounty hunters to fall victim to the Box's traps, Bulduga is killed before the challenge even begins. When Count Dooku mentions all of the participating bounty hunters' accolades, he mentions to Onca that he and his brother were a legendary team, only to then mention that the challenges in the Box are going to be much more difficult for him without his brother.
  • Easy Impersonation: Invoked and parodied. Bulduga is very clearly trying to mimic Cad Bane with his brown leather vest, red-lensed visors/goggles, and broad-brimmed fedora. However, Bane is not very flattered by it and kills him.
  • Guns Akimbo: Onca used two blasters at a time, including a sawed-off blaster rifle.
  • The Gunslinger: Many people believed that Bulduga was trying to imitate Cad Bane with his choice of hat and Quick Draw style, although they never said so within his hearing. Too bad for him that Cad Bane does not take well to copycats who have nicer hats than him.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Onca is killed when one of the laser spike traps in the Box impales him from behind.
  • Mighty Glacier: Onca was unable to move as fast as his brother, being unable to overcome the Ithorians natural heavy build, so he preferred to overwhelm his targets with firepower. This did not serve him well in the Box, where he fell victim to the quick traps inside very quickly.
  • Nice Hat: Bulduga wore a broad-brimmed hat identical to Cad Bane's first hat. Unfortunately for him, this led Cad Bane to kill him for it.
  • Sibling Team: They hunted bounties as a team and Count Dooku was aware of their fearsome reputation.
  • Stereotype Flip: Ithorians are known for being a peaceful race. Bulduga and Onca are ruthless bounty hunters who are very quickly able to prove anyone who thinks that about them wrong.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: They both die in their debut episode, with Bulduga being shot by Cad Bane before even the introduction to the Box and Onca being impaled by a trap within the Box.

  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: She is skewered by one of the laser spike traps in the second test.
  • Pirate: She is an ex-pirate, and has a price on her head for her crimes during that period. Due to that, Swan tends to take illegal jobs and work alone since other bounty hunters might try to claim her bounty.
  • Shout-Out: To Pirates of the Caribbean; she's named after Keira Knightley and her character Elizabeth Swann, the "Obsidian Sphere" is a reference to the Black Pearl, and she's also an ex-pirate in her backstory.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: She dies in her first appearance.
