Jango Fett was a renowned human Mandalorian bounty hunter, assassin, mercenary, and the “father” of Boba Fett, a genetic clone of his, whom he raised as a son. Fett became a bounty hunter, quickly establishing a reputation as being one of the best in the galaxy. Later on, Fett agreed to serve as the genetic template for the clones that would form the bulk of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. However, Fett would be central in many facets of the army’s early development, including assisting in the design of the armor worn by the clones, evident in the loose similarities between their armor and Fett’s own Mandalorian shock trooper armor, including the distinctive T-visor of their helmets.
