Boba Fett may have made his official first onscreen appearance in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back (if we aren't including the 1978 animated Star Wars Holiday Special, that is), but thanks to the 2002 live-action prequel Attack of the Clones and the 2008 animated series The Clone Wars, he's been given a pretty in-depth history. Prior to the start of the Clone Wars, there was Jango Fett, a bounty hunter in Mandalorian armor who may or may not have been behind the assassination attempt on Senator Padmé Amidala.

In The Clone Wars, Jango is described by the Mandalorian Prime Minister as a "common bounty hunter" who was able to get a hold of their armor but is not, in fact, Mandalorian himself. Opinions here are somewhat split. When The Clone Wars came out in 2008, Jango Fett was indeed Mandalorian, and the planet's officials were desperate to hide it. In 2014, when Disney announced that the Star Wars Expanded Universe was no longer canon, Jango lost his backstory, but The Clone Wars stayed in. So he may or may not be a true Mandalorian, but he is every bit a notorious bounty hunter and assassin.
