What to do with Boba Fett

Boba Fett has a long, confusing history, probably the most confusing out of any Star Wars character ever. Before the prequels, it seems everyone had their own ideas of where he came from. And those ideas popped up in various stories. A lot of them. Then the prequels came around, and now there’s a definitive story of the character everyone uses. And it’s fine. Really, it’s a decent backstory. Thing is, giving him a definitive backstory at all undermines unspoken coolness of the character. Fett is not a complicated, relatable, inspiring figure, he’s a badass suit of armor who stands there and looks threatening.

I have a way to resolve all of this: make him the Star Wars equivalent of the Dread Pirate Roberts. 

All those contradicting backstories and levels of skill are, in-universe, the result of misleading information gleaned from many different Fetts. That’s why the same guy who survived a fight with Darth Vader can also be beaten by a flailing, near-blind Han Solo. Why he’s a clone of a bounty hunter and a former imperial stormtrooper and a Mandalorian warrior and a lawman from a rural planet and someone who has no past at all.

The idea was even suggested in-universe. Not everyone was always sure Fett was really Fett, and for some, it explains how he could do the impossible.

Multiple people have tried impersonating him, including his own granddaughter. 

And a couple of inferior competitors.

Trust nobody, not even yourself.

You could even work it into the motivation of the original. His dad made an army of copies, why can’t he? Why not allow other people who prove themselves to use his identity? Maybe some of them don’t actually deserve the name. Fine. They’ll die. People will see Boba Fett die. They’ll also remember him dying when someone calling themself by that name, wearing that same armor, shows up to collect a bounty like nothing happened.

That’s how he got out of the sarlacc. The creature puked up a bunch of armor, somebody found it, they put it on, and there you go. Boba Fett escaped. It doesn’t matter if someone is learning a new definition of pain as they’re digested, so long as Fett is the one walking away. 

Cue Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath:

Adwin spies a large, long box on the floor. He whips off the ratty cloth that’s covering it and—

Oh, my. 

From the box, he withdraws a helmet. Pitted and pocked, as if with some kind of acid. But still—he raps his knuckles on it. The Mandalorians knew how to make armor, didn’t they? “Look at this,” he says, holding it up. “Mandalorian battle armor. Whole box. Complete set, by the looks of it. Been through hell and back. I think my boss will appreciate this.”

“I actually think I might take that home with me,” Cobb says.

Boba Fett can be anyone. Everyone is Boba Fett. 

EVERYONE.

SO THEY TWEAK SNOWDAY GRAVES SPLASH ART

DO YOU SEE THIS SHIT. DO. YOU. SEE. IT. RIGHT. THERE???? 

GRAVES IS….SMILING….HUGING HIS BF…..LOOK AT THEM…….THANK YOU RIOT……

The person that took this alien picture didn’t know they had the picture until they took the roll of film to get developed. Then when they took a look at the pictures they were stunned to find this haunting alien picture staring back at them. To this day the couple from Oklahoma still have no idea how the picture got onto their camera.
