Bo-Katan, or simply Bo, is the sister of Satine Kryze, who once ruled as the Duchess of Mandalore, and served the Mandalorian terrorist group Death Watch during the Clone Wars until the Sith Lord Maul killed her leader Pre Vizsla. This led her to stage a rebellion against Maul's rule, attracting the attention of the Republic. While Mandalore was neutral in the Clone Wars, Bo-Katan asked the Republic to send forces to Mandalore to help capture Maul. As Anakin and Obi-Wan had been sent to rescue Palpatine from Dooku and Grievous' flagship above Coruscant, Ahsoka and Rex were sent instead, greatly angering Maul, who was anticipating Kenobi to come. Ahsoka, Rex, and Bo were able to capture Maul after a lightsaber fight, but did not heed his warnings about the impending disaster: Order 66, which Maul was familiar with despite no longer being associated with Palpatine.
- Katee Sackhoff revealed on September 10, 2016 at Oz Comic-Con Sydney that Bo-Katan would make an appearance in Star Wars Rebels.
