Boba Fett is the most dreaded bounty hunter in the universe and he will work for anyone if the price is right. His only allegiance is to credits and noone better get in the way when it's time for him to collect his bounty. I was first intrigued by this character because of this independence and entrepreneurial spirit. He sealed the deal as my favorite Star Wars character, surpassing Luke Skywalker, as I read more about him in the novels. His origin further came to light during the Clone Wars. However, that took a different direction that the books. He was emotional as a youth, but began improving his skill craft by taking jobs with other bounty hunters. Jump ahead to The Mandalorian, and we see that he survived the Sarlacc. At this point, he's lived through many adventures and became a more wise and honorable man.
And then it happened... Boba Fett got his own series! It elaborated upon his survival from the Sarlacc, taken in by the Sand People, and becoming a warrior of the Dune Sea. The story deviated from one of the novels in that, if I'm not mistaken, he was originally saved by the six-breasted dancing girl from Jabba's palace. Nevertheless, I found it interesting as he ascended into a respected authority figure in Mos Eisley. His side-kick, Fennec Shand, proved to be a master strategist and the voice in his ear. Combined with her skills as a bounty hunter enforcer, it wouldn't surprise me if she usurps his authority one of these days! However, I doubt she could never mount and ride a Rancor like Boba Fett!
