More Details On Characters Origins
While a few details have been given about the mysterious Mandalorian, such as how he came to be rescued by the Mando’s, and that his real name is Din Djarin , not much else has been revealed about the titular character or his co-stars.
It would be great if we could learn more about these characters backstories in future episodes/seasons of this series. Such as, what was Cara Dune’s life as a Rebel shock trooper like? What did Djarin do in his earlier years before embarking on his career as a bounty hunter? What is the history of Greef Karga? Who was the Mandalorian that saved Djarin?
These are just a few of the many questions that fans would love to know. Hopefully, we’ll get the answers to these and many others as the series progresses.
Purge Troopers (Or other specialized stormtroopers)
The Mandalorian has recently featured the return of the Death Troopers first shown in Star Wars Rogue One. Although these troopers were more dangerous than most of the Empire’s other ranks, they were still no match for the Mandalorian and his allies.
Following the conclusion of the first season, it’s likely that Moff Gideon will be pursuing the Mandalorian and the Child. However, since being left temporarily stranded on Navarro, he may send a special unit of Imperial soldiers to pursue his adversary and asset.
Besides the aforementioned Death Troopers another deadly antagonist to send after our hero would be the Purge Troopers, as seen in the videogame Jedi: Fallen Order. Or, if the creators wanted to tie-in with the current trilogy they could send in the Knights of Ren. How the Mandolorian would fare against these guys is anyone’s guess, luckily for him, he’s got a giant disintegrating rifle.
Amban phase-pulse blaster
Speaking of disintegrating blasters/rifles, whatever happened to the Mando’s signature weapon? For some unknown reason, this weapon which was featured in several episodes of the recent series (most notably Episode 3:The Sin) disappeared off-air. Whether it was deemed too violent by Disney or, backfired and disintegrated itself, has yet to be revealed.
First seen in The Star Wars Holiday Special’s, “The Faithful Wookie” cartoon that introduced fans to Boba Fett, it was one of the most unique and dangerous blasters ever shown in a Star Wars film. While this weapon that resembled a tuning fork was capable of delivering crippling jolts of electric energy to targets, when fully-charged it could reduce any living creature caught in its path to smoldering ash.
So, again, why would the Mandalorian abandon one of his greatest weapons? Perhaps we’ll see it again, or at least find some reasonable explanation for its disappearance.
