In his Mandalorian armor and distinctive beskar helmet, our protagonist has an enigmatic past: we know who was orphaned during the Republic Era Y He was raised as a foundling by the Sons of the Guard. There, he trained to become a Mandalorian warrior to later join the Tribe, which operated in Nevarro but was secretly part of the Sons of the Guard cult.
Man of few words and one of the best hunters, from the beginning of the series he has a little companion: El Niño. As we saw previously, the relationship between “Mando” and the little one we all nickname Baby Yoda mutually reinforces each other.
The Mandalorian. The first time Mando and El Niño were face to face.
They will accompany the duo Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), the closest affections that “Mando” could do the previous season.

There are those who maintain that the silhouette that appears at the end of the fifth episode of the first season belongs to Fett.
