"The Mandalorian," also known as "Mando" for short, was the alias of a human male Mandalorian bounty hunter during the New Republic Era. With his beskar armor and distinctive mask, the Mandalorian was both well-equipped and enigmatic—a stranger whose past was shrouded in mystery. He was a battle-hardened warrior, a man of few words, and a formidable mercenary in an increasingly dangerous galaxy.
After the fall of the Galactic Empire, the Mandalorian made a name for himself as a member of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, collecting bounties as he traveled across the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories—far from the authority of the New Republic—in his personal starship, the Razor Crest.
The Mandalorian was a loner of questionable although polite character, as well as a bit sarcastic. His past and identity were wrapped in mystery, and he remained battle-worn and tight-lipped as a formidable bounty hunter. Despite his callous and ruthless tendencies, however, he could be caring: although his Client allowed for the Child to be killed, The Mandalorian refused to kill the infant and instead destroyed IG-11, the assassin droid who had been hired only to kill the Child rather than capture it. Later on, he showed his care for the child, in searching for a place where the small alien could grow up happily. Furthermore, he was close with his tribe, and had a special interest in the foundlings of the tribe, as he had been one, and so ensured they received any of his excess beskar.
