Years later, Jango has become a full-fledged Mandalorian warrior under Jaster’s tutelage. The Mandalorians are ambushed by Death Watch, and Jaster is killed by Vizsla. Wearing Jaster’s armor, Jango becomes the leader of the True Mandalorians. A Jedi strike force led by Count Dooku slays Jango’s warriors, and Jango is sold into slavery to the planet’s governor. Jango later escapes, attacks Death Watch and kills Vizsla, and begins working as a bounty hunter. Dooku, under instructions from his master, Darth Sidious, pits the most notorious mercenaries of the galaxy against each other in order to select a genetic template for an army of clones. Fett emerges victorious and in a tense meeting with Dooku, requests a single, unmodified clone to be his son and apprentice.
