Interestingly, the name “Children of the Watch” evokes one more splinter group from Star Wars lore: the Death Watch, a team devoted to restoring the militaristic nature of Mandalorian culture– as well as which Bo-Katan was a crucial part of in the Clone Wars age.
The two teams are not the very same, however, as well as also Bo-Katan views the Children of the Watch as severe cultists.
The exact nature of Din Djarin’s Mandalorian upbringing has been the subject of a great deal of questions on The Mandalorian, and also has actually gained comparisons to Jango Fett and also his very own quasi-Mandalorian links. Was Jango Fett really a Mandalorian? Similar To Din Djarin, that question is a little trickier to answer than it appears.
We find out in this episode that Din Djarin– who, remember, isn’t an indigenous Mandalorian, however a foundling elevated by a team of Mandalorians– had not been located by simply a regular team of Mandalorians.
When he initially fulfills Bo-Katan Kryze as well as her close friends, he’s shocked and also horrified that they remove their headgears; nevertheless, he’s been shown that no Mandalorian ever removes their headgear in the presence of one more living thing. His response, to them, suggests that he was raised by the Children of the Watch, “a cult of spiritual activists that escaped from Mandalorian culture. Their objective was to reestablish the ancient way.”
The only other person we understand of who was highly linked to Mandalorians without being one is Jango Fett, the bounty hunter and duplicate “dad” of Boba Fett. In the Clone Wars TV program, even more of Jango Fett’s backstory is exposed, although it’s shrouded in some enigma by his very own finding. He puts on Mandalorian armor and declares that he was born on an earth under Mandalorian rule, real Mandalorian officials firmly insist that he is not a Mandalorian and acquired his armor with burglary or scavenging.
Jango Fett’s actual early life, however, continues to be mainly unknown. Virtually nothing has been revealed concerning his beginnings or his life prior to coming to be a bounty hunter as well as, at some point, the layout for the Sith’s duplicate army during the Clone Wars. Is it feasible that he was, privately, an actual Mandalorian all along? It’s technically possible, yes, but provided the truth that Boba Fett appears to be a personality on The Mandalorian now, it would certainly make more sense to draw parallels in between Din Djarin and the Fetts: bounty hunters that deal with like Mandalorians without having been born one of them.
