6. Boba Fett has a complicated history with the Jedi
Throughout Attack of the Clones, Boba Fett’s father, Jango Fett, became entangled in a plot with the Jedi while Boba watched and tried to help his father as best as he could, even though he was just a child.
Ultimately, Jango faced down the brutal and tough Jedi Knight Mace Windu and died while Boba watched helplessly, leading him to distrust the Jedi and seek out vengeance against them.
The aftermath of Boba’s grief was further explored in a multi-episode arc in The Clone Wars when, with the help of his father’s bounty hunter friends, Boba hid out among a troop of clone cadets in order to carry out his assassination plot against Mace and seek his revenge.
Further highlighting the Jedi’s callousness, it took Mace and Anakin quite a while to realize who could possibly want to target Mace and why. While Boba’s bounty hunter friends were out of control and wanted to kill as many Jedi as possible as a ransom to Count Dooku, young Boba was conflicted and maintained that he just wanted revenge against his father’s killer.
Unfortunately, when the Jedi finally caught Boba they showed him no mercy and sent him to a brutal Republic prison. Though it is a tragic moment in Boba’s history, it’s part of what made him the bounty hunter fans know and love.
