Jango Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. He first appeared as a supporting villain in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and later served as the protagonist of the LucasArts video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, played by Temuera Morrison. Jango Fett serves as the host-clone for the Clone Army of the Republic, and subsequently some of the Imperial Stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire. His 'son', Boba Fett, is, in reality, an unaltered clone which he requested in his contract with the Kamino cloners, whom he regards as a son. Jango Fett and the clone army he spawns are ultimately a tool used by Chancellor Palpatine to destroy the Jedi Order and gain emergency powers over the Republic in his bid for galactic conquest.
