"The Mandalorian" also sometimes called Mando is the main protagonist of the Disney + direct series The Mandalorian. He is a reputed bounty hunter operating at the time of the new republic some years after the fall of the Galactic Empire. During one of his huntings, he met a mysterious Force-sensitive infant of the same species as Yoda nicknamed "The Child" who happened to be his target with whom he formed a close bond and to seek to protect at all costs, putting him in conflict with other bounty hunters as well as with a former member of the empire who had originally hired him.
In his youth, he lived with his parents on the planet Mandalore that was victim of a separatist attack in which his parents lost their lives by protecting him. This tragic event remained in his memory years later.
Some time later, he joined a Mandaloran clan called "The Tribe", settled on a volcanic world and acquired armor and weapons from his people, before joining the Bounty Hunters' Guild. In 9 ABY, five years after the destruction of the second Death Star and the final defeat of the empire, the Mandalorian had gained an excellent reputation as a bounty hunter, which provoked the jealousy of other members of the guild.
He once teamed up with two mercenary Twi'lek, Qin and his sister Xi'an, and things went very badly.
Competent and dangerous, this bounty hunter is able to be ruthless and merciless to those he tracks or those who put themselves on his way. He is constantly alert and will draw his weapons if he feels as though someone is about to attack him. Endowed with a morality more than doubtful, it is difficult to surround his facial emotions because he never removes his helmet.
Solitary and somewhat antisocial, the Mandalorian has a respectful relationship with the Mandalorian Armorer who is also aware of the fact that he is an orphan, he is also able to show great respect towards someone who earns his trust , like Kuiil whom he even offered his gratidute when the Ugnaught has at the same time refused a payment and also to becoming his partner.
Due to having been an orphan himself, he seems to have a deep sympathy for the other orphans. This same sympathy also extends to "The Child" who was initially a target for him, caring first of his security only to get his payment for it evolves to the point that he risks his life and betray the guild to save him from these employers
