Jango Fett ?
 
Who did Jango Fett work for? The emperor? Count Dooku? Was he answerable to anyone? Someone hired him for the clone army. I know he gave Obi-Wan an answer as to who hired him.. but was he speaking the truth?

Thx.. I suppose I shoulda looked there first before asking. Wookiepedia... a wealth of information..

jawathehutt 10-22-2007 11:01 PM

Hmm, intersting

Lieutenant_kettch 01-26-2008 12:42 AM

oh god... wookieepedia... not your most reliable source of information

Rev7 01-26-2008 02:23 AM

Not your most reliable source.

Anyways in the game, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, featuring Jango, it tells you nearly everything on your question, thus if you want info I must put it in a spoiler box. What I am about to say is generally the game in a nutshell. :/
spoiler:
Generally to answer your question, Jango Fett was hired by Count Dooku, during a hunt to find the leader of the Bando Gora, Kamari Vosa (sorry if that is incorrect spelling). You track Vosa down to a moon of Bogden, were you meet and, well, er, somewhat kill her. Dooku 'makes a proposition' to you (Jango) and you (Jango) ask for an unaltered clone for yourself. The deal is done. This basically says that, since you agreed to Dooku, who works for Sidious, who happens to be the Emperor, that the clones are ultimately his. Whew, hope that answers your question.

BTW--Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is a pretty fun game. :D

Lieutenant_kettch 01-26-2008 10:53 AM

i'll second that it's a fun game... takes a little getting used to, but a bunch of fun.

adamqd 01-26-2008 12:00 PM

I agree that Wookieepedia is fan produced, but unless the Star Wars Databank are willing to put more than 2 sentances about 1 in 10 characters online, you'll have too buy the hundreds of books, novels, comics, games and essential guides, if you want to be 100% sure on what's reliable.... then we'll still have to take your word for it ;)

any information added to wookieepedia must be sourced and mod verified, you could write what you want, but I assure you it wont stay on the site if it's wrong

I'm not really reading any of this, because my opinion is that Jango Fett works for whoever. As long as he gets to kill someone. Mysterious...yes.

JoeDoe 2.0 01-31-2008 08:50 AM

Yeah, it's also revealed that Dooku hired Jango in the second movie, when asked by Obi if he was recruited by Master Syfo-Dias, Fett tells him that he was recruited by a man called "Tyrannus"(a.k.a. Count Dooku) on "One of the moons of Bogden".

PoiuyWired 01-31-2008 01:28 PM

Well, also also, the Jango Fett comics talk about his rise from the Son of a peaceful Journeyman Protector to a Famous Mando Hero to a slave and back again to a hero, etc etc. Also, the first official meeting to Dooku is kinda interesting.

Sam! 02-15-2008 05:42 AM

Ah well it's apparent that nobody read my post. See what I mean about the "Don't care who posted what" syndrome? Well that's not excaly how I put it but...close enough yeees.

adamqd 02-15-2008 05:55 AM

^^
people dont have to respond or agree with you about anything.

I agree that, if something doesn't sit well with me in the EU I just try to avoid it or pretend it doesn't exist, but thats just my opinion and taste, and my opinion and taste is irrelevant to canon, the continuity and other peoples ideas of whats cool

Sir Phobos 02-18-2008 02:49 PM

Jango Fett states that he was hired by someone named Tyranus, e.g. Darth Tyranus - Count Dooku.

I think it's doubtful that Jango reported to or even knew about Sidious' plan for the Star Wars Universe. I think being a bounty hunter he was on a 'need to know' basis and he probably didn't 'need to know' who Sidious was.

In short, I think it's pretty obvious from the movie that he reported to Dooku.

I second that!

Jango and Sidious

I agree. bounty Hunters vwere at the lower pecking level in the scheme of things so he would not have known about the sidious plan. That is my 2 cents worth anyway

Wikipedia is not the place to go for Star Wars info. Wookiepedia is still the most complete site on the internet for Star Wars info.

HockeyGoalie35 07-06-2010 08:25 AM

yea.....but isnt it basicly the same thing?

No. How are both the same thing?

HockeyGoalie35 07-06-2010 05:23 PM

Wookiepedia is a sub catagory of Wikipedia, just like Halopedia and Call of Duty wiki

Antares Navaar 01-29-2012 02:52 AM

To answer your question, did Han Solo /work/ for Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, or did he do something for them as a quick job in exchange for credits? He doesn't serve any one person, but I know he does work a lot with the empire. Or did.

Wikia is technically not the same organization as Wikipedia. Wikia is a for-profit while Wikimedia (the group that runs Wikipedia) is a non-profit.

Kurgan 06-18-2014 09:50 PM

The wiki is a template that anybody within reason can use for their own online encyclopedia of whatever. Think of it like an open-source game engine.

So yeah, wookieepedia is basically a similar concept as all wikis out there. Fans in their spare time are adding their interpretations of things and doing a pretty good job. But of course it's no more official or "canonical" than any other fanpage, even if it's big and extensive. ;)

Gurges-Ahter 06-21-2014 02:18 PM

I love Wookieepedia, despite all the hate it receives on forums. Is it always right? No, of course not - but I disagree when people say it's "not the best source of Star Wars information". I think it is. What's better?

GrandMasterMarek 07-09-2014 09:50 AM

I like wookieepedia to, I even have a account with them I have not contributed to any articles yet, now back to this discussion I figured since Jango Fett is a bounty hunter he works for whos paying I mean with Count Dooku staring up a war between the seperatists & the republic there was good opportunity to make some credit I was raging when Mace Windu beheaded him on Geonosis such a waste of a character although with the battle going around him I doubt Obi won & the other jedi would have not stopped hunting him.
