A bounty hunter was a member of the Bounty Hunters' Guild in the years following the Galactic Civil War and during the early days of the New Republic. A hulking, brutal hunter, he was present during the shootout on the planet of Nevarro when the Mandalorian Din Djarin attempted to escape with the Child. He fought side-by-side with guild leader Greef Karga.


"You put the bounty down and perhaps I'll let you pass."
―Greef Karga[3]

The hunter stood beside Greef Karga to apprehend Din Djarin.

The bounty hunter was present in the Nevarro cantina when Din Djarin returned from the planet Pagodon. He eyed Djarin as he turned his multiple bounty pucks into Greef Karga.[2]

Some time later, he joined Karga and the rest of the guild members as they attempted to stop Djarin from fleeing the planet. The bounty hunter stood beside Karga while he attempted to persuade Djarin to hand over The Child. The Bounty Hunter had his larger blaster aimed directly at the Mandalorian during the conversation. He engaged in a firefight with Djarin,[3] but was ultimately gunned down by more Mandalorians that arrived to aide Djarin.[4]


The bounty hunter carried a large blaster rifle and wore large, protective gauntlets on his hands and arms. He also donned a flowing dark robe, heavy combat boots, and a breath mask.[3]

  1. Star Wars: Timelines dates the events of "Chapter 1: The Mandalorian" and "Chapter 16: The Rescue" to 9 ABY. The events of Chapters 1–16, including the bounty hunter's death on Nevarro, as depicted by the adaptation for "Chapter 3: The Sin", must therefore also take place in 9 ABY.
