7. Boba Fett spent time in the same Republic prison as Obi-Wan
After Boba Fett’s revenge-driven assassination plot against Mace Windu was discovered, the Jedi sent him to a harsh and brutal Republic prison, even though he was a young child at the time. Unbeknownst to Boba and Obi-Wan, the two crossed paths sometime later when Obi-Wan entered the prison undercover.
As the Clone Wars escalated, a criminal named Moralo Eval plotted to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine, leading Obi-Wan and Mace to hatch a secret plot to fake Obi-Wan’s death so he could pose as his own killer and gain intel about the plot to harm the chancellor.
After Obi-Wan, posing as his killer, was arrested for his own murder, he met some of Eval’s partners inside the prison and helped them to hatch a prison break. There, he crossed paths with Boba who incited a riot in the cafeteria, giving Obi-Wan and his friends the distraction they needed to break out.
As a result, others broke out, too, including Boba and one of his bounty hunter friends, leading to the next chapter of his life when he took up his father’s mantle and led a crew of bounty hunters from a young age. While it was undoubtedly a dark chapter, the Republic prison also helped to shape Boba into the bounty hunter he became, with (no) thanks to the Jedi.
