Fallout from The Battle of Navarro
The Mandalorian was once considered a top member of the Bounty Hunters Guild on the planet Navarro. However, when he chose to break his contract and save The Child, this put him in the cross-hairs of his fellow members. This in turn led to a memorable confrontation on the streets of Navarro that resulted in the disintegration of several bounty hunters.
Although this caused a brief falling out with Greef Karga, an agent of the guild, the Mandalorian was eventually forgiven for his trespasses. However, just because Karga doesn’t harbor a grudge, that shouldn’t mean that the rest of the bounty hunters feel the same.
One bounty hunter that would be nice to have the Mandalorian cross paths with is Bossk, the Trandoshan that first appeared alongside Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back. Bossk also doesn’t seem like the type to let a truce stop him from collecting a bounty, so if Moff Gideon were looking for a bounty hunter to go after the Mandalorian, this guy is as good as any. Also, with the advance in prosthetics and digital effects, now would be a great time to bring him back to a live-action project.
Who is Moff Gideon?
Since making his debut in Episode 7: The Reckoning, Moff Gideon has established himself as one Imperial you do NOT want to cross paths with. Not much is known about this character’s backstory except that he was once a member of the ISB, and that he was present during the “Night of a Thousand Tears,” a.k.a. The Great Purge where the Empire committed genocide against the Mandalorians.
One particular question about this character/that’s begging for an answer is, how did he come to possess the Darksaber ? This weapon, which originally belonged to a Mandalorian Jedi named Tarre Vizsla during the Old Republic, had passed into many hands, including Darth Maul. The last to wield it was Bo-Katan Kryze, the sister of Dutchess Satine, the Clone Wars-era leader of Mandalore.
